Summit Up

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s not going to stand for sitting inside, when everybody and their brother is right outside our window partying.

Our good readers don’t expect us to sit here and write, right?

Swell. It’s settled.



Since we still need to fill this space, here’s some list we found in the computer files. Don’t know where it came from, but it’s amusing (amusing, we say, because we don’t find ourselves saying any of the things in it – that probably doesn’t surprise you, either).

You know you are really an adult when….



1. Your house plants are alive, and you can’t smoke any of them.

2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.

3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

4. 6 a.m. is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.

6. You watch the Weather Channel.

7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up.

8. You go from 130 days of vacation to 14.

9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as “dressed up.”

10. You’re the one calling police ’cause those kids next door won’t turn down the stereo.

11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

12. You don’t know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.

13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald’s leftovers.

15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

16. You no longer take naps from noon to 6 p.m.

17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.

18. Eating buffalo wings at 3 a.m. would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

20. A $4 bottle of wine is no longer “pretty good stuff.”

21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

22. “I just can’t drink the way I used to,” replaces, “I’m never going to drink that much again.”

23. Ninety percent of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.

24. You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

25. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn’t apply to you.
