I remember vividly exclaiming as a child, “I can’t wait to grow up and be an adult!” I was convinced that I would get to do whatever I wanted – eat whatever I liked, sleep whenever the mood hit, watch television for as many hours as I could until my eyes felt like sandpaper. To be honest, all of those things have turned out to be true and I’m pretty much enjoying popcorn for dinner and Netflix at two in the morning. Yet no one warned me of the risk of sliding down the back of the old person hill I had climbed.
There are no balloons, but there may be flowers… and a headstone.
Here are all the great things you have to look forward to that have nothing to do with fun and everything to do with turning into the old lady on your street who keeps asking everyone to turn the noise down.
