Signs that we might be becoming adults

July 7, 2009

1. Work Chucks is out buying a leather porfolio, in which to keep a notepad upon which to take notes. These portfolios are key among soon-to-be business school grads, wannabe-important interns, and real people. The general turdishness of carrying one of these is almost always outweighed by how awesome it is to have all of your shit in one place. Because really, who wants to walk into a meeting and realize that the one pen they have is somewhere at the bottom of their very full bag?

This is significantly more organized than my entire life. NBD.

2. On the rare occasions that I choose to answer my cell phone, my first instinct is to use the greeting I use when I pick up the office phone. This has led to some very awkward moments of me fumbling around for a simpler greeting of “Why the fuck are you calling me Mom?”

3. To see each other during the day, we have to plan “lunch dates” and “happy hours.” This is nowhere near as glamorous as it seems on shows like Sex and the City.

4. We almost never stay up past 10:30 or 11 pm, and I haven’t seen the Colbert Report in over a month.

On the plus side, we are truly embracing our most old man-ish tendencies. We argue about politics incessantly, watch cable news, and share recipies. We also bitch about health insurance and the weather. Speaking of which, what the fuck is up with everyone getting colds in the middle of the summer? This is not right. THIS.IS.NOT.RIGHT. Just saying.

    Um. I love that we do these things 🙂
