According to a new study, there’s a list of things you can be expected to do before classing yourself as a ‘proper adult.’
On the list come such things as owning a mortgage, getting married, and always wearing coats on a night out.
If it all comes down to how many of the 50 things you can lay claim to that determines your level of maturity, I must still be half child, half adult.
The above examples, yes. Going to bed before 11pm though?! No, I’ve still got to master that one. As for listening to Radio 2 – erm, no. I’m 35 not 95.
They’ve also neglected to put these on the list:
You know you’re a proper grown up when:
– You haven’t got the foggiest who’s number one in the charts that week.
– You sit nicely at parties and don’t do running slide tackles on your knees at family get togethers.
– Whereas once upon a time you’d have loved whizzing around a rollercoaster and dangling upside down by your legs at the theme parks, nowadays the thought of going on anything faster than the teacup rides brings you out in a cold sweat.
I don’t think I can be classed as a fully fledged adult yet, though. I certainly don’t feel like one.
If I start to listen to Radio 2 or have a best set of towels alongside the everyday towels, then I might start to worry a bit more.
Are YOU a grown up yet?!
