    25 Signs You Have Grown Up
    1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

    2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.

    3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

    4. 6:00 a.m. is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

    5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.

    6. You watch the Weather Channel.

    7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and
    "break up."

    8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.

    9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."

    10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids
    next door won't turn down the stereo.

    11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around
    you.

    12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.

    13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

    14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's
    leftovers.

    15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

    16. You take naps.

    17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the
    beginning of one.

    18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely
    upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

    19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not
    condoms and pregnancy tests.

    20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good shit."

    21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

    22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never
    going to drink that much again."

    23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real
    work.

    24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

    25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate
    them instead of asking "Oh shit what the hell happened?"



    Bonus:
    26: You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that
    doesn't apply to you and can't find one to save your sorry old ass.
    Then
    you forward it to a bunch of old friends 'cause you know they'll enjoy
    it & do the same
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    Good one! Guess I’m grown up most of the time, but sure did not hit them all.

    I don't know if I should be happy or depressed. I am 22 and most of that stuff pertains to me. Well I guess you have to grow up sometime.

    *Whew* I have not been entirely assimilated after all!

    4. 6:00 a.m. is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
    That'd be a sign of dementia, not "growing up!"
    8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
    But if you've *really* arrived, you get 300 days of vacation
    12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
    Only because I never did eat that. I did make an immediate mental note last year, when the McDonald's (finally!!!) went to 24/7 operation!
    10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids
    next door won't turn down the stereo.
    It's more fun to just drown out whatever they're playing with CAWNTRY, than calling any cops! Kids who play loud music always seem to hate country ...and if it's the one neighbor who wouldn't hate that, I've got BACH for them, muaa haa haaa...
    23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real
    work.
    Eeewww, what a horrible idea. That, that's just unthinkable... *Turns on game*

    Some others don't apply either, but those are the biggies. Although, they say that lots of people my age are still playing video games! So maybe we just haven't forgotten what's worth doing!

    The only one I could identify with was:

    Now, do you have to match them all or any two, any three? How does it work?! [sorry, loved the Psychological Testing class (when studying Counseling Psychology) too much, I guess]

    At my age it would diffinately be OH SHIT!!!!

    If you haven't checked out my B-day info... Year is 1901 (or was it 1911? at my age I forget... )

    Do we have to count it if we drink at home cause we can't find the bar?
    We always drink champagne when we play board games!
    Makes the loosers feel better when the games are over...
