Sings That You Are Really An Adult,
by Matthew Westerholm
Here’s mine! But you don’t have to BE an adult to know the signs.
1. The Propect of an All-Nighter sounds terrible.
If I asked my six-year-old if he wanted to stay up all night, he’d love me forever.
College students drag around campus, but secretly it’s a badge of honor: “I’ve been up for 39 straight hours, man, getting ready for my recital.” That might have been a mistake. I doubt the guy who won the Boston Marathon pulled an all-nighter to get ready for it.
2. You consider vanilla a flavor. And really do enjoy it.
Ask a kid if he wants vanilla or chocolate. He’ll pick chocolate every time and, if he’s honest, shoot you a look that means “Is that really a choice?”
3. You pay a mortgage.
A 14-year-old can (sadly) have a baby. It takes an adult to have a mortgage.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN.
