Adulting

As opposed to adulterating, adulting is not frowned on. In fact it is encouraged by the peddlers of virtue… along with sacrifice, suffering, and guilt. And it will cost you a lot of money.

Ever thought of shopping elsewhere?

Wednesday I put the wife and daughter on a plane to send them for a short holiday. I am staying in the cold weather and they are going to a resort in warm weather. So that’s the sacrifice sorted.

The suffering will be when the cat starts yowling for attention and I refrain from throwing an old shoe at it. If i give into the temptation I will get to the guilt part. None of these prospects appeal.

A little more to the taste was a series of plans made and jobs completed. The highlight was going to the hardware store and buying a new toilet seat. You can buy them from $ 22 to $109 but it would appear that they are very similar products. The bums that use them do not vary. I opted for the $ 22 cheek pincher and saved the rest.

DInner was been sorted – the wife left a complete series of easy-cook dinners for me in the freezer. I normally cook for the rest of the family anyway, but the fact that there ouldl be only one eating means my normal recipes would be overwhelming. As an adult I would now eat kiddy portions…

Past this, the house was clean and quiet and will not need re-straightening for a week. Perhaps adulthood is not as bad as has been feared.
