i found this old withered joke in my inbox from 7/01, and it reminded me of a post i did recently (*whew* some emails down, only 938 left to go!)

SIGNS YOU'RE OFFICIALLY AN ADULT:

1. Your potted plants stay alive.
2. Having sex in a twin sized bed is absurd.
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to sleep.
5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
6. You carry an umbrella. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hookup and breakup.
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 7.
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as 'dressed up'.
10. You're the one calling the police because those darn kids next door
don't know how to 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.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 p.m.
17. Dinner and a movie - The whole date instead of the beginning of one.
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 a.m. would severely upset, rather
than settle, your stomach.
19. You go to the drugstore for Ibuprofen and antacids, not condoms and
pregnancy test kits.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer 'pretty good stuff'.
21. You actually eat breakfast foods at breakfast time.
22. Grocery lists are longer than macaroni & cheese, diet Pepsi, Microwave
Burritos & Ding Dongs.
23. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to
drink that much again."
24. Over 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
25. You don't drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
26.! You read this entire list looking for one sign that doesn't pertain to
you.

I've seen a different version of the list where one of them was "You know you're an adult when you drop your hairbrush in the toilet and your mother/father isn't there to fish it out." Kinda gross but there's some truth to that. *chuckles*

1. I put my plants through water fasts. They are strong, they live; then I reward them with water.

9. How the hell is a sweater and jeans dressed up?

10. One time I almost called the police on some neighbors that were having a wild party. I was so upset that I didn't call; BUT, a neighbor called them!!! The police arrived late.

12. Doesn't Taco Bell stay open till midnight? 1 am??

15. I can't sleep on catches for that exact same reason.

18. I will never try to eat a bucket of chicken EVER.

So, according to this list I'll never be an adult, or at least till I get married :)

I love sleeping on couches. I don't plan to sleep on anything (and therefore have sex) on anything but a regular twin bed till I get married. $4 wine is ALWAYS good stuff! What about getting condoms, ibuprofen, and antacid? SHE can buy the pregnancy test! This is definetly more accurately... POSSIBLE SIGNS THAT YOU ARE IN A "NORMAL" MARRIED RELATIONSHIP...

Re:
The couches were those wooden crate couches yanno...I think the two couches were a love pit but i can't recall what 2 of the chairs together were called - a love ---? (yes! 2 chairs pushed together! ew!) Maybe a love nest?

You know who would know is my old college roommate *snicker* but she's a mommy now so maybe she wants to forget her wild past.....
