25 SIGNS YOU HAVE GROWN UP

1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

2. Having sex in a single 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 favourite 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 holidays to 20.

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.

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 from noon to 6 pm.

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. If you're a gal, you go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

20. A £2.00 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 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. 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 friends because you know they'll enjoy it & do the same.

Sound the trumpets! Let the band play! I'm not grown up yet!

But am I going to tell you which signs don't apply to me? Not on your nellie (apart from anything else, I know you want the extra responses that might come as people try to guess!).

I will tell you that there are at least five ... and I will give you my heartfelt thanks for making me feel younger today

I jumped up in indignation, exclaiming to the skies, "None of this applies to me."

And pulled my calf muscle. ;(

There are many mnay quotes about old age. Choose whichever you feel is appropriate to you:-

Age is something that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese.

Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.

Old age is fifteen years older than I am.

You can judge your age by the amount of pain you feel when you come in contact with a new idea.

Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.
