    25 Signs You've Grown Up

    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 on 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 damn 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 payments go up.

    14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonalds leftovers.

    15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

    16. You no longer 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. 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. You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

    25. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that this doesn't apply to you

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I'm closing in on 40, and just in the past year have started to really begin feeling old. I can't remember the last time I got drunk enough to have a hangover, I get sore after an afternoon of yardwork, and a few months ago I pulled a muscle in my shoulders/neck while drying my hair with a towel, for Christsakes!

    FKAGobucks877 The Most Power-Drunk

    I hate being old. Whoever created this list makes me feel even older. They deserve to be drug out in the street and shot. And bucknola deserves a public flogging for posting it here. :)

    Perhaps these immature comments will counter-act my growing senility as it pertains to the above list. What is sad is I can remember when I could party until 3 am, and still be at work by 7 am. Now if I see a drunk midnight, my body is mad at me for a week. At least it is if I have to wake up the next morning.

    I'm also 28. Same thoughts... However, I probably drink more now than I did in college- because I can afford much better stuff (I just don't do those other things... as much).

    When I first saw that list I thought it was this email I received today.

    Random thoughts:

    1. Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants.

    2. Marriage changes passion. Suddenly you're in bed with a relative.

    3. I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it. So I said "Implants?" She hit me.

    4. I don't do drugs. I get the same effect just standing up fast.

    5. Sign in a Chinese Pet Store: "Buy one dog, get one flea..."

    6. I live in my own little world. But it's OK. They know me here.

    7. Why do I have to swear on the Bible in court when the Ten Commandments cannot be displayed in a federal building?

    8. If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

    9. I don't approve of political jokes. I've seen too many of them get elected.

    10. There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and Sh!thead's.
    (sorry)

    11. I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

    12. I am a nobody, and nobody is perfect; therefore, I am perfect.

    13. Everyday I beat my own previous record for number of consecutive days I have stayed alive.

    14. How come we choose from just two people to run for president and
    50 for Miss America?

    15. Isn't having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?

    16. Why is it that most nudists are people you don't want to see naked?

    17. Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled.

    18. A good friend will come and bail you out of jail...but, a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damn...that was fun!"

    19. I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose-fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose-fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!

    20. Wouldn't you know it...Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever.

    21. When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping," now I just "chunky dunk."

    22. The worst thing about accidents in the kitchen is eating them.

    23. Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

    24. Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over?

    25. Stress is when you wake up screaming and then you realize you haven't fallen asleep yet.

    26. Just remember...if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.
