Recently, while binge watching stories on Youtube, I came across this little gem by Jaiden Animations.
I figured that at 30+, I definitely meet the adult age qualification. Besides, I’m already married, so I’m pretty sure I should start adulting soon, right?
1. Gummy Candy Multivites
After years of trying to remember to take my tasteless multivitamin capsules, and generally having them expire since I can’t seem to keep them on my schedule, I stumbled across these:
And immediately thought that they were the best thing since sliced bread.
So, despite DebsG’s protests that gummy candies are not a very efficient vehicle for vitamins, I bought them.
Since then, my sweet tooth hasn’t let me miss a single dose in months. I even time the taking of my other meds around the gummyvites so that I remember to take everything.
So, phhhhhhbtt DebsG, you’re not the boss of me!
2. All Nighties All the Time
Like Catana of Catana Comics, I hate clothes. I just don’t like the feeling of cloth on my skin, especially if it’s a hot day.
That being said, it’s not generally socially acceptable run around naked all day, so I spend about 90% of my days wearing loose, ill-fitting nighties.
Half my closet is nighties! They’re so snuggly and warm! I can throw one on in the morning, go outside and do the gardening in soft, fluffy comfort, then toss it off once I get back inside! It’s perfect!
3. Cuddle my Teddy Bear to Sleep
This is Tippy Bear. The Boobook gave him to me as a congratulatory present after I graduated from my Masters. We actually went to the teddy bear shop to pick him out together, though that’s a story for another day.
I cannot sleep without Tippy Bear. If we’re going overseas, we have to bring him with us so that I can get to sleep at night. Mind you, I just need him to get to sleep, as he’s often abandoned and left to fend for himself on the bedroom floor or somewhere in the bed once I’m actually unconscious.
I think it’s a comfort thing because I’ve always slept with a stuffed toy growing up. Plus, it’s nice to have something to cuddle as I’m falling asleep and the Boobook, bless his soul, tends to put out so much heat that cuddling him is like hugging a furnace.
That, and he complains that I drool all over him.
At least Tippy never complains.
4. Play Teddy Bear Puppet Theatre with my Husband
In my defence, it’s not like the Boobook doesn’t talk back to Tippy and cuddle him too. He says it’s great practise for when we actually have kids.
5. Make Blanket Forts
I love duvets and we have a really comfortable couch, so most days I combine the two for the ultimate comfort. It helps with the rabbits as well, since they tend to get a lot more cuddly when there’s a burrow-like structure available.
I do most of my writing and knitting on the couch, so having a warm blanket to cover me up is great.
This is more of a recent development, since I couldn’t do this back in my old apartment. My couch was terrible and I didn’t have rabbits back then.
So, those are the five things that I do that adults probably don’t do. I hope you enjoyed it. DebsG, I challenge you to do it too.
Also as an aside, I’d try Jaiden Animations‘ “Perfect Bite (TM)” eating style, but I’m often so hungry that I just snarf everything down before I can even start analysing it! (And often before I can even take a picture of it, too)
