How I know I’m Getting Old…

I THINK I’M GROWN BECAUSE:

  • I can tell my mom to chill out and she’s not automatically offended, or trying to smack me.
  • I read Flyy Girl and The Coldest Winter Ever¬†about 10 years ago.
  • I can’t eat indiscriminately anymore, metabolism has kicked in hard!
  • I don’t get ID’ed at bars, and when I do I’m flattered.
  • I found a couple of gray hairs right in the front of my head.
  • After the renting car abilities of 25, there’s no more cool perks to look forward to with age.

I KNOW I’M NOT GROWN BECAUSE:

  • I still lie to my mother when it comes to spending the night at a guy’s house.
  • Most times, I forget to brush my teeth before bed. Most adults are on top of that, right?
  • I can’t watch Chucky or the Gremlins without having nightmares.
  • I am still spoiled for Christmas.
  • Mom still won’t tell me about issues in her life. (maybe this will never change?)
  • I’m convinced being an adult is overrated, so I’d rather live somewhere in between childhood and adulthood.

Here’s to all the in-betweeners,
