Growing Up..


June 14, 2013 by Preeks


You know you have grown up when..

  1. Every second update on your Facebook news feed is a wedding or an engagement. The horror of it all struck me last week with this update – “It’s a girl!”. :-/
  2. You walk into grocery/retail stores and don’t migrate towards the snacks section to pick up a packet of Lays or Uncle Chips. You actually stand in the Personal Wash section and compare Surf Excel and Tide. (For the love of me, I don’t know how they are any different.)
  3. When your body clock sets itself at 6:45 am! I don’t even know how that happened. It’s almost an insult to my life’s ideologies.
  4. You talk about your life’s ideologies and principles.
  5. Your incentive for traveling is the Daily Allowance!
  6. Retirement planning becomes a reality. I mean, you do it for tax benefit and blah, but whatever. You accepted it, right?
  7. The most dialled number on your phone log is, wait for it, the broker’s.
  8. You do not, come what may, wish to go out on the weekend!
  9. You cannot find company to watch Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
  10. You can actually, actively, with your whole mind,Β ignore the TV. The only thing you enjoy watching is Seinfeld and so, your attention span has been reduced to 21:44 min.

But you know, its not all bad. When you call home at the end of the day, you are still a kid. When your first gift to yourself from your salary is a paints set, you are definitely a kid. When you cannot resist french fries, at any time of the day, you are a kid. When in a buffet lunch, you prefer the Kids menu, noone can even contest you aren’t a kid.

Small pleasures. Life. Meh.

In case you haven’t guessed by now, work life has started again.

HaveΒ a fun weekend!

    Small pleasures of life. I'll Add to that list cooking yourself in the kitchen in the weekends and lazing around reading my favorite Calvin and Hobbes. He'll never let me grow up and I don't wish to. πŸ™‚
