48. Buy a novelty postcard in another country of topless women on a beach and write, “Wish you were here” on it.

49. Keg stands.

50. Purchase home-brewing paraphernalia.

51. The John Travolta point-to-the-ceiling-point-to-the-floor dance move; also that one from Pulp Fiction.

52. Put less than ten dollars’ worth of gas in the tank.

53. Keep a minuscule amount of marijuana extremely well hidden.

    I’m so glad I’m 25. Eat me sucha’s! I get away with all kinds of crap under the guise of youth.

  3. Damn. I think that list just ruined my week. But as I always tell my wife, “It’s not how old you really are, but it’s…” Ah forget it, too depressed now.

  4. Full confession: I’ve violated 4 of those rules, but I’m not saying which ones… 🙂
