Gorilla Christopher would have put this all together for Gorilla Shawn much earlier in the week, but he had a software release at work and some extra things to write. Bills had to be paid, and he's running errands in the evenings this week in preparation for some Paid Time Off (PTO) next week.
But that's all okay, because Gorilla Shawn recently started a new job at a ridiculously reputable company. He's also working on a hearing regarding property taxes and trying to live a solid adult life in between it all.
Oh, sure -- some people have parents who attempt to prepare them for adulthood, but most of it is a matter of figuring it out as you go. (Like most things in life.)
[And there's something oddly liberating that comes along with the day of that realization.]
So sit back and listen to the Gorillamen talk about what it is to be...ADULT Men in Gorilla Suits...
* * *
We kick it off with a simple enough question: Is being an adult like you imagined it would be as a child? After that, we talk about what surprised us about adulthood...and at what age we considered ourselves adults.
Find out if we feel like adults most of the time. After that, we discuss our chores as children...and as adults.
Even prepared, adulthood is not without its surprises. We chat about hidden responsibilities of adulthood no one mentioned when we were kids...and then devote some time to the best -- and worst -- things about being adults.
We touch on if we ever miss being younger...before chatting about the following question: is adulting hard?
And we wrap it all up with our futures in the adult world.
