TT #25 - 13 Signs that You have grown up


1. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
2. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
3. You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door won't turn down the stereo.
4. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up.
5. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you. (This seriously grosses me out! I don't care that we are both adults, you're my UNCLE for cryin' out loud!)
6. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
7. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 PM.
8. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
9. "I just can't drink the way I used to," replaces, "I'm never going to drink that much again."
10. You watch the Weather Channel.
11. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
12. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonalds leftovers.
13. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that this doesn't apply to you.

I'll have you know that watching the weather channel is a "cool" thing to do...when you need some help nodding off at night! Good list!

Malcolm said...

I was just saying to somebody the other day that I can't drink like I could when I was younger. I'm glad that I can't because it's nice to wake up without having to deal with a dreaded hangover.

HILARIOUS LIST!

#5...too true. This happened to me with my in-laws, for pete's sake! My FIL started a sex joke with him & my MIL as the stars of the joke and I shook my head thru the entire thing..."no-no-no-no-no! I'm not listening-I'm not listening!-I'm not listening-I'm not listening!"

Ick.

Deanna Dahlsad said...

Ack! #2 is the worst - the kids are always like, "how do you know that song?" :sigh:

Happy TT!

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Could you please write a longer list, I have yet to find one that didn't fit me...
I had fun visiting your TT.
Mine is at The Cafe.
Hope you'll drop by.

Alice Audrey said...

jenn said...

LOL...those were good!

jenn said...

I tagged you for a meme!

Cecily R said...

Ugh. Am I that grown up? Number two made me laugh!!

Firefly mom said...

Yep - that's me (sigh). How about a few more:

When you hear Aerosmith on the easy listening station

or

You hear a song on the radio and exlaim "I used to have this on a 45!" and the other (much younger) adult in the car looks at you blankly and says "What's a 45?"

My TT's up if you want to peek at it - fashion of the 80's.
