I can only cross one of these off.


1.       Adults make their beds every day.

2.       Adults stay level headed and keep constant perspective about things.

3.       Adults are rarely late, and never without an excuse.

4.       Adults know where their money goes.

5.       Knowing how to cook more than three things by heart makes you an adult.

6.       Adults do not eat cereal for dinner.

7.       Budgets do not send adults in to fitful depression stress spirals.

8.       A true adult does not get on the internet while drunk.

9.       Adults dedicate themselves to work but have multiple at home hobbies.

10.   Adults are not afraid of doing the dishes. Every day.

11.   All adults make mistakes. And all adults take responsibility for them.

12.   Folding laundry is no issue at all to an adult.

13.   Adults make phone calls. All the time.

14.   Asking a question leads adults only to answers, not to quivering piles of self doubt.

15.   Adults can afford their own tooth paste.

    My standard has always been “Adults can eat dessert before/instead of dinner, if they want to.”

    (Note: You inspired me. I totally wrote a very short blog post on the same thing.)

    If the whole list is a requirement, I’m not sure I know any Adults.
