22 Things I Agree With…

In light of the serious nature of the post I made earlier this morning, I’d like to take the opportunity to lighten up before nightfall. I’d rather go to bed smiling than frowning. Someone sent me a list of “truths” known to most adults. I don’t know about the adult part, but maybe it would be more accurate to say this is a list of facts known to most people by the time they are forty years old. I agree with almost every one of them. So for your reading pleasure, here they are:


22 ADULT TRUTHS ******

1. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times; and still not know what time it is.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind-of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of a Word document and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with “Miller Lite” than “Kay”.

17. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

18 How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

19. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

20. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Jeans? Jeans never get dirty; and you can wear them forever.

21. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket; finding their cell phone; and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey…but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

22. The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it took only 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

    YES! Finally someone who knows those Adult Truths! Except for #6: Was learning cursive really necessary?- That is a resounding YES, because it was so hard for me to learn and I think EVERYONE should have to learn it… or not… 🙂

    • I have to agree with you on this one in the sense that I do love cursive writing and think it is a shame our grandchildren will not be able to “sign” their names or read our old papers, but then I agree with the list because apparently, “we” wasted our time learning to do it if the “new, more knowledgeable” younger crowd feel it is unnecessary. Actually, I think the teachers were forced to do away with it as a sort of “art” form in favor of more important issues such as teaching to those tests the government came up with. Ahh, but there I go! Please forgive a frustrated ex-educator. LOL
