Default I'm getting old

So, I don't consider myself a grown-up. AT ALL

I have a grown up job and I do grown up things... I'm pretty responsible, pay all my bills on time and all that shit. But at what point do you become old? When do you stop having a blast no matter what you're doing? I don't feel old. I still get carded for everything, but this morning that all changed.

I had breakfast with our insurance guy and an hour later had purchased my very own life insurance policy. I guess it just always seemed like an old person thing to me. So maybe I'm finally starting to grow up.

Serious question....

When are you actually considered a grown up?


There's no real answer, but what do you think?

When you actually start acting like a grown up.

I've known high schoolers who I would trust to act in a responsible, adult manner. I've also known people in their 30's who are in desperate need of a mommy.

There's no real answer, but what do you think?

When you realize that you are not right 100% of the time, and that your Dad was really an intelligent guy.
