A few months ago, my boyfriend (of about 2 years) broke up with me. It was hard... but guess what: the next day (that is: waaay sooner than even I expected to) we had a loooong chat and I told him that I consider him my best friend and always will,  and then  we wished each other every happiness. I couldn't help but remark :"" Wow... we're being so grown-up about it..."

... you go shopping for a BYOB party and you pass the colourful liquor shelf without stopping and go straight for the dry red Spanish wine with gold netting that you know won't give you a headache or heart-burn.

... you're planning how to spend your 30th birthday.

... you go on a 30 minute rant with another friend who's just gone back to school about the rude, clueless young whippersnappers who go to school with you, wherein the phrase "in our day" is mentioned several times.

Seriously, if I had a lawn, I'd shout at you to stay off it!  ::)

I hope you don't mean you would yell at me to stay off your lawn(I'm not one of those dang whippersnappers).

You put vacuum cleaners and computer chairs on your Christmas WishList   :P

When you hear someone refer to Batman Returns as an "old" movie.




Oh, and you little whippersnappers GET OFF MY LAWN!  ;)

Chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream and chocolate syrup and chocolate sprinkles no longer sounds so appealing to you.

You're right. It needs hot chocolate as a chaser.

...when you get your utility bill and it's $60 less than usual because you turned the heat down and you decide that $60 is totally worth freezing your rear off all winter.

When it's your name on the eneveolpe with the plastic window.
When you realize that what you want to eat in groceries and the money in your wallet don't match.
When you find your eye twitching at kids who walk over their parents. (in MY day it was the parents in charge, no the 7 year old. and yes, I do know I'm only a month from 20 :P)

You Are an Adult when:

You're responsible for all the bills.

Given a choice, you choose the practical boots over the cute ones.

A slightly younger co-worker who is a club-kid (he was 25 and I was 29) hits you with this.  "Thipu.  You're an older woman.  Tell me when you stop wanting to have fun."  :-\

When you've set up all your direct debits to come out straight after you get paid so that all essentials are covered and you don't overspend your 'play-money'.

When money is no longer 'beer, pizza and cute clothes' money, but 'work clothes, budget-yet-healthy food and good quality wine' money :d

When getting a boyfriend no longer involves sending a note through your best friend  :P (I actually miss those days, soooo much easier :D)

Mom makes clear that you are responsible for taking up or letting down hems, ironing, doing your own laundry, repairing your own clothes, and buying your own clothes.

the people you don't care about criticize you, and you don't care. Yes! It finally happened.

You find yourself saying charming things like, "Do I look like the owner of electric company/gas company?  Please turn off the lights you're not using/put on a sweater if you're that cold!"

You start asking for appliances for gift giving occasions.

You open your mouth and your mothers voice comes out.
