    Some may have seen this already, but in case you haven't, I thought it was worth posting. And, to all you young ones...just look at what you have to look forward to!!!

    25 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 darn 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 McDonalds 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 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 no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
    25. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you.

    6. You watch the Weather Channel

    yes that and listening to organic gardening on sunday am are dead give aways.

    Also, i just noticed my kids are embarassed to watch

    R rated movies with us b/c of the sex scenes. I told my son the other day that this wasn't the first time we had seen "that " in a movie.

    3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge. For some reason, we have Michelob, Michelob Ultra, Heinekein, Busch Light, Bud Light and Corona all in the fridge...takes up a shelf and a half. A fridge in the basement has a case of Dos Equis (sp?)....there was nothing for lunch today....

    It sounds like that list is written by some very old people . I don't know any 40 year olds that applies too.
