I am an adult. Really?

I will be turning 27 this September’14. I feel old. I feel I need to start using anti-ageing skincare soon. My eyes are all crinky at the corners because I have small eyes, I wear contact lenses and I squint a lot.

The great father of mine says I am getting old only physically. Mentally I am a 5 year old still. I am all responsible and money-wise and know my priorities and all that. But my behavior and my talks don’t say that I am 27 AT ALL! I feel even more like a kid when with certain things I am supposed to show maturity and behave like an adult. I have to make some awkward confessions here.

In my line of work, a certain part of the pump/bolting mechanism is called a n*pple. I am putting an asterisk here to avoid creepskates googling and landing on my blog. Everytime I here that word, I giggle. I have to control my laughter so that people at work don’t think of me as a weirdo. I hear the word being said atleast 5 times during the day. And each time, I crack one rib trying to stifle my laughter.

Whenever someone mentions Dick’s Sporting Goods, I can hear laughter in my head. If I am driving and I pass the store, I laugh out loud. I just cannot help it! Same with the character Dick in Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. Oh Lord! It made reading Famous Five very awkward after I was 13-14.

Many times, when I see newly married couples from my school/college, the first thought is, have they done it , yet? I see some girls or guys, and I have a hard time imagining if they must be doing it at all! Holy cow! I almost have to smack myself to make such weird thoughts go away. It is very very embarrassing for such ideas creeping in my head. Thankfully, I am not alone. A couple of my friends are guilty of that as well. Also, getting pregnant is like, the stamp that you have had s*x. How are you supposed to tell your parents that you are pregnant! 😀 I am very embarrassed to admit this all here, but hey! I am being honest here!

There are times when I talk to my mom about my dog’s s*x life(actually the lack of it, but no lack of trying from our side). She tells me stuff in details of how they got the female, which is usually one of the half adopted strays that my mom feeds, and how it got very exasperating and how my dog was being a nutjob. I can hear my dad yelling in the background at my mom and I, to stop talking like crazy because we both are in fits of laughter.

Sometimes I watch Ellen DeGeneres’s youtube clips and there is a writer named Andy on her show. She has called him on stage a couple of times and made him say some stuff.

Watch this clip here, courtesy The Ellen Show.

The way he reacts is so similar to how I behave!

Siggghhh. I am 27. I think it is about time I stop the giggles and be more mature.

So, I have to buy some new gym clothes. I will go to Dick’s Sporting Good tonight. *Breaking into a goofy giggle in my cubicle* 😀

ETA: Read Pepper’s wonderful post here and feel good that we arent perverts, but perfectly normal. Also read thisfor just a lovely post about being a child-woman. I am very similar to what she has jotted down. I say ‘wheee’ when my car goes down the slope. 😀

  1. I feel like I’m still 13 years old in my head. And sometimes much to the annoyance of my husband I behave that way too!

    Age is just a number ya! We are young at heart, that’s all that matters!

    Also, totally agree with you about Dick’s Sporting Goods. When I first saw the store I was like how did the guy even think of naming it that!


  2. Hahaha… Sochte sab hain, bataata koi nahin 😀
    There is nothing more beautiful than a woman being absolutely honest! So… thank you for that 🙂


  3. The number of times ive wondered if So*** Mo** has done it…how do you think she kisses? Her teeth were and probably still are so dirty. I feel for the poor guy…or maybe he has a dirty teeth fetish?

    And same pinch on the Dick’s sporting goods thing.


  4. Lol…i was wondering who So*** Mo** is …got it now! and i rem hw i told u that i too hv thoughts abt some married ppl thinking hw cud they do it?? Lol…


  5. hahaha…I think the same whenever I see a couple (married or unmarried) whom I know. My friend got married last november and the first time I talked to her on phone post-wedding, I asked her if she has done it yet 😛 I guess everybody thinks similarly, only a few admit it 😀


  6. Oh honey, I totally feel you. I am 27 at present, but I feel my body is stuck in my 13 yr old soul. The most grown up thing I have done in my life was getting married, but even that didn’t really make me feel all ‘grown up’. I have no idea what will. Even now, I relate more to some of my friends’ kids than the said friends themselves 😐

    And about the sex? Please tell me you have read this post of mine. https://pepperedthoughts.wordpress.com/2011/12/01/am-i-the-only-one/

    I said the exact same thing long, long ago. Also make sure you read the comment section. Looks like everybody thinks the same way. LOL.


      • Wow! I did not realize that. I hope this is okay, but let me know if not. I think subconsciously you are my blogspiration. The post is wonderful by the way and lists so many things which are similar to me! Specially the airplane thing! I am gonna try putting these two links into my post. You are a pleasure to read, Pepper.


    • Hahahaha! I remember reading that post! But I had not read the comments i think! Feels so good that I am not a perv and this is so normal. Me and a friend AM would sit in the mess of our engg college and see girls of BEd and DEd come to eat. Ee used to see mangalsutras and giggle wondering if those simple sweet looking girls had ever done it yet! Lol


I love to get notes. So, go ahead...
