When the fuck did I become an adult?

I recently had one of those scary “when the fuck did I become an adult?” moments and yes, I am aware I am now 26 years old and by law I’ve been an adult for many years but it’s scary when your brain starts behaving like an adult without any conscious effort. I am worried "adult" is becoming my brains default setting and I’m not ready for that.

Just the thought gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Here’s what happened; I was having a Facebook conversation with a friend about Nashville or to be exact about how she needed to hurry and watch the damn finale, when somehow the conversation took a serious turn into current events.  I won’t go into too many details because this isn’t the place for serious talk and I’m sure as hell not the person for it

Me and my friend were going back and forth agreeing on some things, disagreeing on others, just having an honest debate nothing malicious or personal. After we both made our points and came to an understanding she said something that gave me that “when the fuck did I become an adult moment?”

She said “See I can talk to you. You agree, disagree, show another side, more information, where others just go NO, THIS IS RIGHT, YOUR WRONG.”

After she said that I just sat there thinking “when the fuck did that happen? “I mean there are still some topics where I’m all “I’m right, end of” equality is the one that comes to mind. There is no valid argument against equality as far as I’m concerned. But I remember a time where I was like that with most things but now I’m interested in both sides. I want to have a full understanding, even if I don’t agree with it.

My brain is becoming an adult and I don’t like it, what if all the crazy in there becomes logical? I can’t do normal. I don’t like normal. Pandas don’t ride around on roller-skate eating cotton candy in normal brains.

What was your first “when the fuck did I become an adult?” moment? Let me know in the comment box below and as always stay and play safe.


The Honest Bitch 



  1. When I realized this totally cool guy I somewhat idolized growing up was really a huge douche. I think that when you can look back and realize how different you saw things as a kid. Saying that, I am not growing up for real. Hells, every household needs one adult, and I appointed Chris.

    1. I think I'm joining your household so Chris can be the adult for me too lol :-)

    2. Can I join too? Sounds like a great household to be part of ... B and I could be your new tenants, assuming I survive Iceland lol

  2. I don't think I became an "adult" until my late twenties when life threw me a hard curve ball--I lost one of my twin babies. Oh man, did I have to grow up fast. Now my kids are pretty much grown and they lecture ME on acting too much like a kid! Hey, if you're young at heart, you never grow old!!!
