    As I get older, I realize I'm getting wiser. Some of the lessons I've learned over the years:

    1. I talk to myself because sometimes I need expert advice.

    2. Sometimes I roll my eyes out loud.

    3. I don't need anger management; I need people to stop pissing me off.

    4. My people skills are just fine; it's my tolerance of idiots that needs work.

    5. The biggest lie I tell myself is, "I don't need to write that down; I'll remember it."

    6. When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment. Now it's like a mini vacation.

    7. The day the world runs out of wine is just too terrible to think about.

    8. Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

    9. Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes and come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller?

    10. At my age, "getting lucky" means walking into a room and remembering what I went in there for.

    I completely, 100% relate to 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 if you replace wine with whiskey, and 8.

    I'm only 31, but I feel (and probably act) half my age, and it's ironic that only within the past year or two, I've been embracing life in the way that most high school and college students do. All my college friends are getting married and having babies, and all I want to do is play video games, drink, work out, and ignore the fact that I have four identifiable grey hairs. I don't feel like I'm responsible or mature enough to make the amount of money I do, or have the position in my company that I do.

    Wake me up when I'm 50 or something.

    Awesome post; this made me think about a lot of things.

    I don't remember when I started to enjoy sleep. Probably right after having children.:devilcorn:

    But I do remember being young and sleep was punishment. Then as a young adult sleep was an annoying but necessary interruption to life.

    Now I look forward to it. Maybe that's natures way of getting me used to the idea of sleeping forever. or it could just be the Post Autumnal Depression talking.:devilroll:
