Here's how you can tell if you've gained at least a semblance of maturity. You bring a potato casserole to a large and important family event and realize only after you've taken your first bite that the one thing you forgot to do is cook the thing completely.
Trust me. A mixture of raw potatoes, raw onions and seasonings doesn't taste too good raw.
Not surprisingly, no one ate it.
Surprisingly, I laughed.
Sometimes life reaches the point where the only sensible thing to do is laugh.
That's when you know you've been around the block a few times.
And that's when a bunch of really neat and amazing people say, "Welcome to the club."
