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 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 off color 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 leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You take naps.
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
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 drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of
asking "Oh no what happened?"
26: 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 self.

By all accounts I must have been "grown up" since I was a teenager. :smile:

WOOHOO! There are a lot of those that still don't apply to me!
1. I don't have any plants, I have a brown thumb (that don't sound right!)
2. Maybe, but the couch and washing machine aren't...
7. I don't get the weather channel in Iraq.
12. 2am and I still love the stuff! I'd probably kill for a Baja Steak Chalupa right now!
16. I don't take naps, but I wish I could! Wife does, and she's younger than me though.
23. 90% of my time on the computer is me just goof'n off, or on the BCF!

Ditto. I joined the Air Force right after graduation. Growd me up real fast! Some of my fellow classmates, however, not so much:


Ok, not really one of my class mates - but many who could have been his twin :rolleyes:

I'm not quite in the Jeff Spicoli league. Maybe more like The Dude.
