    Stuff you can do because you're a grown up

    What's a better dessert than cheesecake? I'm not sure anything is. It's so damn good.

    And yes, I'm having "dessert" at 10 AM.

    Sometimes, on rare occasions, just because I'm a grown up, I will crack open a beer at 8:30 a.m. on a Saturday morning. I've also been known to eat salad for breakfast. You get to do that when you're a grown up.

    Heck, I think I'll stay up really late tonight and go to bed at 11:00

    Not only can you have a slice of cheesecake, you can have a second slice if you feel like it.

    Sometimes I feel bad for my oldest... we will be eating something with milk in it (like pizza or chicken Alfredo) and he can't because of his allergy to milk protein.
    I did however discover that my middle son like the taste of coffee and gets angry at me when I am drinking coffee and I don't share.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Plan your own vacations instead of being dragged wherever your parents want to go.

    Nobody can make you try new foods that you are positive you won't like.

    Buy a 4L of chocolate milk and drink it in under 48 hours.

    Eating ice cream/popcorn for dinner - I do this on the regular.

    I can reserve a hotel room.
    I can visit a strip club.
    I can drink alcohol and smoke cigars (actually, I might have done that before . . . nevermind)
    I can have a career, not just a job.
    I can max out my credit cards.
    I can lose my hair.
    Maintaining enthusiasm in the face of crushing apathy.

    THIS! I once ate an entire package of Oreos just because nobody had the authority to tell me not too. Hell yes.

    Today it is dark chocolate Milanos with a cup of mint green tea. And I'm about to blast some because-I-can music on the headphones. This cubical kingdom may be small, but it is mine, mine, MINE!!

    Whaaaaat? I wish. Apparently my adultness ends at eating chips for breakfast, which I did today.

    You rebel! You hellion!

    On a related note this morning I merely slowed down at a stop sign when no one was there. I sang Judas Priest aloud (breakin' the law breakin' the law)

    I've realized that what "grown ups" can do mostly had to do with when and what we eat.
