Then there are days like yesterday when I really feel like a grown-up. My bride friend was leaving today to go back to college, so my sister invited is over to her house for dinner. We were all standing around, cooking like adults and having mature conversations. And we made this spread.
At one point in the night my sister said, "Wow, I almost feel like a real adult." And she's the one with a 7-month-old. I felt exactly the same way. Some days, it just hits me that I'm not a kid anymore, and it's liberating and terrifying at the same time.
Then, we had class tonight where I got sent back to elementary school, and everything felt normal again.
In other news, someone got neutered today. He has been wandering around with the cone of shame. He keeps wandering into walls because he doesn't realize it's on him.
Do you ever have moments of really feeling like an adult?
