You know you're a grown up when...


Driving a car doesn’t always sound like fun.

Being bad is no longer cool.

You have friends who have kids.

Saturday mornings are for sleeping.

You are taller than the slide in the McDonald’s play ground.

Your parents’ jokes are suddenly funny.

Christmas starts to annoy you.

You would rather wear your dirty clothes again, ’cause mum is not there to do your washing any more.

Naps are good.

Hitting on young girls is pervy, not flirty.

When things go wrong, you can’t just yell, “Do-over!”

The only thing in your cereal box is... cereal.

You actually buy scarves, gloves, and sunscreen.

You leave concerts and football matches early to beat the crowd.

You actually want clothes for Christmas.

You don’t want a sports car because of the insurance premiums.

You look at the CTV screen in the supermarket and wonder who the bald guy standing at the counter is,  and then realize it is you.

Understanding Pregnancy

A few of the commonly asked questions regarding childbirth and pregnancy explained.


1. Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

2. I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he/she finishes college.

3. What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's gender?
A. Childbirth.

4. My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's the question?

5. My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I feel during labour, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.

6. When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out that you're pregnant.

7. Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labour?
A: Not unless the word "alimony" means anything to you.

8. Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A Yes, another pregnancy.

9. Do I have to have a baby shower?
A. Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.

10. Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.

And then the fight started...

Saturday morning I got up early, got dressed, made my lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked the boat up to the van and proceeded to back out of the garage, only to realise it was chucking it down. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I drove back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed and snuggled up to my wife, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."

My loving wife of 15 years replied, "And, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?"

And then the fight started...

Old Age #4

Morris, an 82 year-old man who was a bit hard of hearing, went to the doctor for a check up.


A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. The next time the doctor spoke to Morris he said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'

Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''

With a horrified look on his face, the doctor said, 'I didn't say that! I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'
