23 Adult Truths

Borrowed from my very dear friend , Mary !

****** 23 ADULT TRUTHS ******

1 Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind-of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Light than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

23. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

The snooze button... I hit it so well in my sleep that I must put my alarm 4 steps away from my bed.

DebD said...

OMG! Those are hilarious. I'm not sure which one I want to shout out... but totally agreeing with #8 (and amazed that someone else reads them too).

Mimi said...

I do love cursive writing, though.

Numbers 1, 8 and 13 are so totally true of me :-)

Like a lily in a linen cloot she looked when they had laid her oot... I swear I've heard my Scottish granny say that and it saddens me that when I actually am old (instead of just worrying about carrier bags and knee ointment) it won't be socially acceptable to discuss funerals over tea and cake.

JoJo said...

OMG!!! I LOVE these!!! I especially identify with 1, 7, and 13. I just have to borrow this post. Thanks to your friend Mary for sharing them. Seldom is there a list such as this that makes me keep saying "yes!!!".

Margaret, I think it would be far more interesting if we knew causes of death too :-)
Let's be honest, "Jeremy Bartleby-Jones, aged 24, Killed in a tragic accident involving fifteen piranhas, a pomegranate and pair of steel-capped boots whilst wind-surfing off the coast of Cornwall" would certainly enhance our newspaper readings :-)
