Twin bed and no tea pot

When I was younger I used to think there were certain things that had to happen before I was officially a "grown up". I know what you are probably thinking- graduate college or have a grown up relationship-things like that, but honestly those didn't really make my list. As a kid, whenever I slept in a queen sized bed I thought "now this is what being a grown up feels like". So I kinda decided- when I have my own queen sized bed (or bed bigger than a twin) and a blender and a tea pot- I'll be a grown up. I have jokingly projected my expectations onto other people- saying, "You can't be a real grown up if you sleep in a twin bed". Of course I am mostly kidding. The humor in it all is I have a queen sized bed, a tea pot and a blender- I even graduated from college, have had a few grown up relationships and I'm turning 30 next week, but I still don't feel very grown up. Maybe I never will.

I have been listening to Death Cab non stop for the past few days and I LOVE this song. I think they are onto something- maybe I'll trade my queen in.

i FINALLY got a queen bed when I moved. It really did make me feel grown up. But it also has that effect-- just feels like a little too much space for just me, especially when I curl up on just one side.

good song. Okay. i'm resold on DCFC.

You would have never discovered it on your own, admit it. I am the friggin genie in the lamp. You wished, I granted.

I think you need a California King to be a grown up.
