25 signs to show if you have grown up

1. Your house plants are alive, but you can’t smoke any of them.

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

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

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

5. You can 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 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 McDonalds closes anymore.

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

14. You feed your dog/cat Whiskas instead of McDonald’s leftovers.

15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

16. You can take naps anytime 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 likely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

19. If you’re female, you go to the chemist for asprin or antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

20. A £3.99 bottle of wine is no longer “pretty damn 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 e-mails only, not games.

24. When you find out your friend is pregnant, you congratulate her instead of saying “No sh*t !?! 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. Then you forward it to a bunch of old pals & friends because you know they’ll probably enjoy it & do the same!!

    I know I’m getting older but:
    1. I have never had house plants nor have I grown plants I can smoke.
    2. I don’t think I have ever had sex in a twin bed, but the couch works fine and it’s smaller.
    3. The only thing in my fridge is alcohol.
    5. Yeah, or in the grocery store.
    6. I watch the History Channel a lot.
    9. Jeans and a sweater still holds true for me.
    12. The McDonalds around here is open 24 hours.
    15. Sex on the couch makes my back hurt.
