Well since you asked…Act your age

Look, we all like to act young. Lord knows I have had enough people meet me and say, “Your 40? Really? Because you sure don’t act your age.” :)
Even the doctors tell us that acting young can make us age slower. But there comes a time when certain things should not be be seen or done by adults. And the fact I have to post about this scares me.

Furry costumes. Hey, I fly my freak flag large and proud to, but adults in full body cutesy furry costumes goes from cute to creepy in 5 seconds flat.

Inanimate friends. Kids can get away with toting around a stuffed animal or a blanket. It’s frowned upon as an adult and doesn’t inspire confidence or sanity when other adults see you with them.

Going Potty. I don’t care if you have to pee-pee or poo-poo. There is no need to announce it. Just go.

Wearing your food. The kool-aid mustache is cute on your 5 year old. It’s not cute on his mom or dad.

Swimwear. No one wants to see your junk hanging out of a speedo or a Brazilian.

Grabbing random body parts. Unless it Girls Gone Wild and your getting paid…keep your hands to yourself.

Wearing anything with a Disney character. Just stop. Your mouseketeer days are over and the sooner you realize this the better we shall all be.

Socks With Sandals. Once you reach age 10 it’s just a HUGE fashion faux pas

Dressing to match your spouse or sibling. Again-cute on 2 year olds, creepy on 30 year olds.

Baby talk. OMG just stop. I don’t want to hear if your “snookum wookums needs her shmoopy to rub her tummy wummy.” *shudder*

Wearing a diaper. Unless it’s medically necessary, there is no reason you should wear a diaper as an adult. None. At. All.

And last but not least…


Rude hand gestures. This kid’s cute and can get away with flipping the bird. You on the other hand would probably get your arse beat down.

I totally announce when I'm going to go potty. Hubs calls me out every time..I can't help it! I've potty trained two kids in the past five is in my brain! ;)

I recently gave a rude hand gesture to a driver who almost ran a high school kid over in a crosswalk...two minutes later I show up at preschool and it was a mom from my son's class. FML.

Mandi-LOL I raz my friend all the time for telling me she has to go number 1 or 2.
I'm guilty of the hand gestures myself. :(

I announce my bathroom intentions too! It's become a habit since I have to let the daycare kids know where I am all the time. I also announce it in public to make sure Jason or my parents (or whoever is with us) know they have to watch the kids. One day, I'll accidentally announce it someplace really embarrassing though. I have to watch that. LOL

And I wear caricature t-shirts sometimes...but they are grown-up cute. And I wear them for the kiddies...really, I do. ;)

But the baby talk...I want to smack people who do that. Even to their kids. Baby talk should be banned. Always. No matter the age of the person you are talking to. *shudder back*

Julie-LOL In privacy of home is ok. It's when you sitting in a 5 star restaurant with other couples and suddenly one announces, "I'm going poo-be back soon" that I wonder.

I never do any of these things. I gave up furry costumes when I gave up my eighties poofy do. Just seemed like the thing to do.
