Grown Ups

(Alternate title: I'm A Big Kid Now)
(Honorable mention: Got A Little Cap'n In You?)
(Everyone gets a ribbon for participating: Cap'n Crunch: It's What's For Dinner.)
(Seriously though, I could do this all day: The Crunchberries Taste Like...Crunchberries!)

Anybody care to take a guess as to what we had for dinner last night?

Did you say Cap'n Crunch?!? HOW DID YOU KNOW?!?!?

As we sat at the table laughing about our meal choice, Gary made the comment, "Yep. We're adults." I laughed at first, but then it slowly began to dawn on me that he was right! I threw down my spoon, turned to him and exclaimed, "Gary! WE ARE ADULTS! WE CAN DO WHATEVER WE WANT!"

Wasn't this what I'd always dreamed of?! The day when I'd be the master of my own destiny - and what's more, my own SLEEP SCHEDULE?!? With nobody to tell me when to be home or when to clean my room or that showering once a week isn't sufficient to maintain a socially acceptable level of personal hygiene?! YES! This was my time, and I was not about to waste a moment of it!!!

But when I realized it was 9:30pm, my excitement quickly ebbed, resulting in the following amendments:

"Okay, whatever we want that's free.

And doesn't involve too much thinking or moving.

Or being awake."

And then we went to bed.
