Top Ten #6 – Ways That You Know You’re No Longer in Your Twenties


  1. Getting drunk is no longer the sole purpose of drinking. Now you like the taste.
  2. A pulled muscle or sprained ankle takes significantly longer to heal.
  3. Even if you’re exhausted, you will get out of bed when you realize that you didn’t floss and brush your teeth because you have now met people with dentures and the thought of having them yourself truly horrifies you.
  4. Perfectly legitimate reason to weep like a baby – not being able to find your tiger balm after a strenuous workout.
  5. All of your friends start having babies . . . on purpose.
  6. You have a vitamin brand that you prefer.
  7. Your fun email address – RockerChic or KatFight82 – has fallen by the wayside in lieu of a more professional address – name@company.com.
  8. Not groaning when you stand up after sitting on the floor for more than 30 minutes is cause for celebration.
  9. There is not enough coffee in the world to adequately get you through the day after pulling an all-nighter.
  10. You’ve realized that staying in with no plans on a Friday or Saturday night is not only acceptable, but sometimes it’s AWESOME.

    Most Friday nights are spent at home in front of the TV with a book. AND I LIKE IT THAT WAY! (To be fair, that’s how several Friday nights in my 20s were spent, too. I just don’t feel guilty about it anymore. 😉 )

      I think you just hit the nail on the head. My behaviors haven’t really changed, I just don’t feel guilty about them anymore!
