Default 27 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 McDonald’s 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 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. MTV News is no longer your primary source of information.

26. Grocery lists are longer than macaroni & cheese, diet Pepsi, and Ho-Hos

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

Numbers 2, 3, 20 and 25 really hit home. Wow I feel like the oldest 23 year old in the world.

I can honestly say that 6,15,16,18,19,20 & 24 don't ALWAYS apply to me, but 27 DEFINITELY does. Can I officially stay not grown up?

Oh Man!! That was pretty funny...

I'm all over #25.. MTV had been replaced by CNN.. thought that would never happen

And #10.. I use to throw MAJOR parties with live bands in my house.. I cant even tell you the times the police came. Now my fiance gives me **** if my headphones are too loud.
