My 17th Edition

Thirteen Signs You've Grown Up:

1. You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door won't turn down the stereo.
2. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
3. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.
4. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
5. "I just can't drink the way I used to," replaces, "I'm never going to drink that much again."
6. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up.
8. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up.
9. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
10. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
11. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
12. Your house plants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
13. You keep more food in your fridge than beer.

4. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

See, for me, that's good times! I love going to the drug store when I need to stock up on EVERYTHING. There was this one occasion when I bought:

Maxi tampons
Midol
Bayer back and body ache
Tiger Balm Patches
Monistat
Witch Hazel Hemmorhoid wipes
Metamucil
Chocolate

And then replied to the cashier while she was ringing me up, "Obviously I'm having a bad week."

LOL
