Officially Adult…

By 20/05/2009Uncategorized

Well, it had to happen at some point, I think I’m now classing myself as an Adult.  A number of events recently, culminating in my ordering of a subscription to National Geographic Magazine, and switching from Moyles to Wogan in the morning.  I shall have to fetch out a pipe and slippers soon.  Anyway, this list will help you identify if you’re no longer ‘of the youth’.

  • You have friends who have kids.
  • Naps are a good thing.
  • You actually buy scarves, gloves, and sunscreen.
  • Driving a car doesn’t always sound like fun.
  • The only thing in your cereal box is … cereal.
  • Your idea of the best Friday night out is one out in the Garden with a nice beer/glass of wine.
  • The local supermarket no longer asks for ID when you buy alcohol.
  • When snacking out, you choose Starbucks over McDonalds because it has a much calmer atmosphere.
  • Your parents treat you as an equal.
  • Financial matters consume several evenings a month.
  • You look in the surveillance camera monitor at the convenience store, wonder who that guy is standing at the counter with the bald spot, and then realize it is a shot of you from behind.
  • Its not a surprise that politicians philander.
  • You use the term ‘The Youth of Today’.

Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments box below – I’ll try and look out for them on my own meandering journey through life.
