Adult Responsibilities

For a while now, I’ve been fighting off the feeling that I was turning into an adult. I mean, just because I have an increasingly responsible job, and more friends who are married that are single, doesn’t mean that I’m an adult. I still (sometimes) go to the bar on a weeknight (although I no longer close it down or take advantage of the drink specials). And some weekends I still sleep until noon.

Then, as I was driving home tonight, contemplating what I was going to cook for dinner, it hit me. I am an adult. After work today I went and had my tires rotated, got a good recommendation for a brake shop to get my brakes checked (because they’re due, not because they’re bad), and then went to the grocery store where I bought adult food like bananas, granola, bread, and yogurt.

I run errands like an adult. I buy groceries like an adult. I even party like an adult – responsibly. Ugh. Enough of that! Starting tomorrow, it’s back to the youngster days for me!

Yeah, right. Until the alarm goes of at 5:45 am and I get up and go back to my responsible job, wearing sensible shoes.

    Wow. Sounds like you hit midlife crisis already! Better stop hanging out with us “older” adults so you don’t suffer through our ailments.

    You have way too much time on your hands if you’re actually reading this little blog of mine and commenting this frequently.

    I need another hobby aside from neglecting my own blog.
