25 Ways to Tell You’re Grown Up

So I got this list from Digg:

25 Ways to Tell You’re Grown Up

  1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can’t smoke any of them.
    Yah… all my houseplants are fake and purchased by my mom.
  2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
  3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
    No beer here, just tons of drinks.
  4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
    Hahahahaha
  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.
    So true, yet so sad. I miss summer vacation.
  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.
    Does knowing when Wendy’s closes count?
  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.
    I guess doing a basket of chicken nuggets 3am is still fine.
  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.”
    When is wine ever “good shit”?
  21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
    Still skip breakfast and usually lunch. Waking up at noon has the problem.
  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.
    “real” work. ;p
  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 the 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 too. And now you know why I am forwarding this to you..

Pretty funny list. See my remarks above (in italics).
