You know you're a grownup if...

It's not the mortgage, the husband or the two kids that clued me in to the fact that I am an official grownup .

It's not the fact that I'm forty years old that makes me think hmmm you may finally be a grownup.

It's not the fact that after a good long run I have to use my arms to pull myself up to a standing position if I'm trying to get something off the bottom shelf at the grocery store. 

Nope.

It's the fact that the taste of a Cadbury Creme Egg makes my stomach turn.

I used to eat large amounts of these  eggs as a young girl.  And each Easter I would wait excitedly for them to be in the stores.  Because, if you will remember, they were only around as long as Easter.

Oh how I loved the taste of a Cadbury Creme Egg.

But now I prefer some nice dark chocolate.

Rich, decadent, grown-up tasting dark chocolate.

You know you're a grownup if...

I am totally with you there. I was just thinking the other day that those Cadbury Eggs would be so much better if they were made with dark chocolate.

uh oh. i still love cadbury creme eggs. you know, eating one correctly is an art form. i spread out the foil flat. then i take a small bite of chocolate off the top. next i take my pinky finger and scoop out all the "yolk" onto the foil. then i eat the chocolate egg. finally i lick the yolk off the foil. yum!

Mmmm, I love dark chocolate. Never was a huge fan of the Cadbury cream eggs, I guess I'm weird.
