One thought on “Signs That Show You’ve Grown Up”

  1. Well, I was hoping this list would describe me, but that very first one disqualified me immediately. How is it fair that I watered my plant for, like, a year and a half, and then only forgot about it for three weeks, and it dies? I mean, I should get some credit for all the other times I watered it. That plant should be grateful and give me a break, and maybe come back to life already.
