25 SIGNS YOU HAVE GROWN UP

(I don't totally agree with no 14 - I think they are pretty comparable nutrition wise :D )

1. Your house plants 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 AM 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. J! eans 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 $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to
drink that mu! ch again."
23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
24. You don't drink at home to save money before going out to a bar.
25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them
instead of asking "Oh S*$# 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 butt. Then
you forward it to a bunch of old pals & friends 'cause you know they'll
enjoy it & do the same

I can't relate to too many because I was too responsible growing up... Maybe I should start doing some of that stuff...

That's a funny one, I think most of those apply here. My pets won't eat McDonald's hubby says they're spoiled, I say they're smart.:D

My music has not made it to elevators or phones (when you are waitimng for a human or another annomated voice, lol), I would never call the police on the kids next door , my house plants could be doing better (despite my class in botony many yrs ago, lol), We never had a Taco Bell when I was a kid (1st one I ever saw was in Wash state in 1970 when I was a kid!). And I could never really eat them, lol , even as a kid my dog got the best food (even if I ate McD styff, lol), I never take naps - I can't imagine taking a nap actually, lol - and I eat breakfast food any time of the day. I often eat cereal especially for dinner, lol (So does my sister - must be a family thing, heheh) Love cereral bars the best tho! Grear when it is 7 PM and you have not eaten since 9 AM that morning. It's my lifestyle and work I think. So I skew the surbey, lol

LOL In Banff a few years ago, I heard Nirvana 'musac' in the hotel. That was weird.
