…until you grow up.
Has anyone ever thought of themselves as a juvenile adult? I’m quite childish in recent years. Especially since my parents are both deceased. Many strangers can never guess my age when I ask them. I love getting proofed for alcohol.
If you’re a teenager reading this, don’t be so quick to ‘grow up’. Certain aspects of adulting suck-a-doodle-doo. And I made that one up all on my own last year. It nearly gave my daughter an aneurysm because she laughed so hard when I said it.
By the way, I lied when I said certain aspects of adulting sucks. ALL of it sucks.
When we were young, we hated naps. Now, we can’t wait to have a nap, and we want as many as possible. In fact, I wouldn’t complain if I could sleep 24/7. But that’s unhealthy. Don’t do that.
When we were young, we wanted to be cool and have a job like our friends. NOW? As an adult you live for Fridays, and cry on Mondays.
When we were young, we couldn’t wait to drive. As adults, people we know die in car accidents. Our vision starts to fail, and we don’t get our license renewed unless that vision test is passed.
When we were young, we couldn’t wait to legally drink and smoke. As adults, we have lung disease and fried livers.
When we were young, we couldn’t wait to get married and start a family. As adults, our children give us gray hair and put us in the poor house.
When we were young, we spent our ‘hard earned’ college years side-job money carelessly. As adults, electricity and water get shut off if money is spent carelessly.
When we were young, we couldn’t wait to have a credit card. As adults, we claim bankruptcy because of them.
When we were young, we couldn’t wait to eat as much junk food as we wanted. As adults, things like heart disease and diabetes is cause for higher health insurance premiums.
Someone please answer me this: WHY did I want to grow up?
I can’t wait to turn 50 in three years. WOOHOO!
