Sure Sign of Adulthood

Many people have their own definition of what it means to be an adult. 18? 21? Maybe it's becoming a parent or financial independence. Maybe it's a frame of mind. My buddies at Merriam-Webster define adult as:

Main Entry: a·dult
Pronunciation: \ˈa-ˌdəlt\
Function: noun

1. one that is adult; especially : a human being after an age (as 21) specified by law

I, however, have my own definition.

adult: one who is excited over the installation of three eco-friendly toilets at a price approximately $1000 less than the quote received last week

Welcome to my world.

I felt adult when I had to start hiring other people to do things for me (like re-roofing my house.) Somehow the actual home buying didn't qualify in my mind.

That saved $1000 must feel pretty darn awesome! You are most welcome to spend the money saved to come visit me in the soon-to-be frozen north.

Great buy! It looks like what I grew up with eons ago when I had no inside facilities... :)

That is awesome! I bet you can think of much more fun uses of that $1000.

If you'd actually paid the original amount, I guess it would have been like flushing money down the toilet. (But at least the water usage would have been minimal.)

Interesting definition. LOL!

This is totally delicious! I couldn't stop giggling. I felt like an adult when I brought my first crying babay home from the Hospital!!!
