Subject: RE: BS: When do you become a grownup? (Study)
I think becoming a grownup is when you change from self-centeredness to thinking of another(s). I've noticed it in my family when someone becomes a parent. Suddenly, all perspective changes. I love it when my kids have a revelation, "Mom (the three syllable word), how did you do it?" (referring to hardships in my life that they were totally unaware of until they experienced the same thing)

Not seriously:

"I used to be cool."
"What happended?"
"I grew up."
