The Most Exciting “Boring” Adult Things Include: Slicing Into a Perfect Avocado, and Paying Bills?

When you’re a kid, there’s an ELECTRICITY you feel when you receive a video game, or a new pair of shoes. When you’re an adult, you get that feeling when you get a new vacuum, or some underwear.

Millennials and Gen X’ers on social media are talking about “adult things” that seemed boring when they were younger . . . but really excite them now.

Here are some of the best ones . . .

1. Slicing into a perfectly ripe avocado. (I grew up in the Midwest, but I didn’t even know what an avocado WAS when I was a kid.)

2. Bird-watching.

3. Instant Pots.

4. Organizing. And, by extension, the Container Store.

5. Alone time. Sitting in silence . . . doing nothing. (Which is actually a PUNISHMENT to some kids.)

6. Paying bills.

7. Checking items off to-do lists.

8. Puzzles. Some people even get amped about framing them afterward.

9. High-quality bedding. And spending time SLEEPING in that bedding.

10. Going to the grocery store or a place like CVS and getting a great deal on something. Someone said, “Swiping my loyalty card . . . and watching the total drop.”

11. Walking into a Costco.

12. Cleaning.

13. Yardwork.

14. Getting up early on a Saturday to go to the local farmer’s market.

15. Leftovers.
