Last Thursday, January 3 was my 30th birthday. As you may remember I posted about it here. Joe thought that sending me 'you know you're thirty when...' messages throughout the day would make me laugh. it definitely did!
you know you're thirty when...
-you learned to swim about the same time Jaws came out and still carry the emotional scars to this day
-"all-skate, change directions" means something to you
-there was nothing to question about Bert n' Ernie living together
-after being on the elliptical for an hour your knees are broken
-you go to a pub and say "this is too loud"
-if one of your girlfriends doesn't order a drink, she might be pregnant
-the idea of going out after a wedding sounds exhausting
-you leave concerts before the encore to beat the rush
-before going out anywhere, you ask what the parking is like
-you start doing your "if I have kids now, then I'll be 48 when they graduate..." math. Then you shudder at the idea of having kids in your current state of arrested development
-MTV is no longer one of your go-to channels. The Smithsonian channel, on the other hand, can captivate you for hours
-you have join pain
-you have heartburn, but think you're having a hear attack
-you haven't worn anything that says Abercrombie and Fitch for 4 1/2 years
-you have become more aware of dumb crap like which illnesses run in your family
-you do the calculations of what age your parents were when they had you and realized you're WAY BEHIND the curve
-you can work the words "mortgage" and 401k" into everyday conversation and almost take yourself seriously
-you've become a weather aficionado
-you can name all the members of New Kids On The Block
-you had a crush on Zack Morris or Kelly Kapowski
-you owned a Trapper Keeper
-you love nothing better than a night in watching interior design and cooking programs
-you have absolutely no clue what's #1 on the charts
-you become powerless to resist the lure of self-assembly furniture
-you always have enough milk
last but not least...you start hating people in their 20's...
