- Being a grownup means not being able to book your birthday off, because there are important things happening on your birthday. Not birthday things, mind you. Business things, like project quotes and contracts are to be arriving at your desk on your birthday. It is entirely selfish for you to think it's about you, BUT WE CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT YOU WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO SELF-CENTERED HARLOT FINE WE'LL FIND SOMEONE ELSE THEN WHO WILL PAY YOUR RENT WE OWN YOU DIRTBAG. Why are you crying?
- Being a grownup means not being able to buy Damon Albarn's first ever solo album until you've satisfied your grownup duties. This may mean you won't have it for several days after its release.
- Being a grownup means that being drunk on a Monday and singing Tom Petty's "Learning to fly" in your apartment by yourself is less badass than you thought it would be when you were 15.
- Same goes for Blue Rodeo's "Rose Coloured Glasses."
I really don't want to go to work tomorrow, but I do want to remain gainfully employed.
