Life 101

You know you’re getting old if…

* At 9 p.m. you’re getting ready for bed, not getting ready to go out.
* Anti-aging skin care products become really important in your life.
* You choose your cereal based on fiber content and not because it has a cool toy inside.
* You actually like eating your vegetables.
* College students look really young to you.
* You sensibly stop drinking after two beers instead of when the bar closes.
* You start sentences with, “When I was a kid…”
* You think the driving age should be raised because 16 year-olds are too immature to handle driving.
* You read books to enrich your life, not because they’re required for your class.
* You get out of bed before noon.
* You do your laundry in a timely manner, not when you have nothing clean to wear.
* You make your bed every day because you want to, not because you have to.

You know you’re still young if…

* You buy a McDonald’s Happy Meal just for the toy.
* You go back to college and buy “school shoes” because you can.
* You’re more excited about what’s in your Christmas stocking rather than under the tree.
* You still dream about what you’ll be when you grow up.
* You sometimes eat cereal for dinner and think it’s a great meal.
* Flowers and cards are nice, but you really want a present you can tear into.
* You look at people your age and think they’re old.
* You haven’t planned for retirement because you’re not old enough yet.
* Laying in bed all day reading trashy magazines sounds like fun.
* You sometimes buy new underwear so you don’t have to do laundry.
* You watch cartoons on Adult Swim and laugh hysterically at them.
* You rent movies just because they’re funny, not because they have a message.
* You still eat dessert after dinner.
* You sometimes go an entire day without consuming a fruit or vegetable.

    Its 8:46pm…I’m putting on my pajamas and climbing into bed with a trashy magazine. Am I old, or young?
