    Thanx to Tonya for sending me this a long time ago (where are you, girl?!)


    Subject: 25 WAYS TO TELL IF YOU HAVE FINALLY GROWN UP

    25 ways to tell if you have finally 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 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. 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/cat 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 girl, you go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
    20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
    21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
    22. "I just can't drink the way I used to..." replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."
    23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
    24. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate her instead of asking "Oh S*$#! What Happened!?!?!?!"
    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.

    Oh really? Do tell! :D

    Dinner and a movie is basically what my wife and I are stuck at right now...except for trips to the bookstore and coffee shop. (Love Half-Price Books and Starbucks).

    Well-Let's see...

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

    I can't keep a darn thing alive-smokable or not!

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

    Anywhere sounds good to me!

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

    I don't know-it's about a 50/50 mix...

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

    I was up till 7am two weekends ago! :shock:

    5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.

    HA!

    6. You watch the Weather Channel.

    This I do from time to time - but not at legnth...

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

    MY Friends?? hahahaha

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

    Unfortunately sad but true.

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

    ANother one - unfortunate but true

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

    Can't beat um-join um....

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

    no comment.

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

    I think I am going to have Roy Rogers tonight...

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

    car is paid for - I SHOULD buy a new one tho....

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

    Only the best for my puppy-so I'm an adult here too.

    15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

    I nap most days on my couch-KnD whatever- back is still good!

    16. You take naps from noon to 6 PM.

    Only when I go to bed at 7am

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

    Still just the beginning! Where's that twin bed???

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

    I do this ALL the time

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

    haha...I don't think i've ever done that.

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

    Agreed....adult...

    21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

    I hate breakfast, and if I am not working monday-friday I am not up for breakfast time.

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

    I drink better than I used to be able to :D

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

    I am going through this-so that answers that!

    24. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate her instead of asking "Oh S*$#! What Happened!?!?!?!"

    HA-okay for the adults this is true.

    So, I would say-I'm still a kid...
    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.
