[rebelmouse-image 18350453 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Adulting is hard, but who said it can't be fun too? Heck, many things are even more fun as adults, even if they were intended for kids, like candy, water parks, or just acting like a goof. At least we're not alone in our childish weirdness.

Googunk asked, Grown ass adults of Reddit - what is the most childish thing you still enjoy?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

I knew I wasn't the only one! Not sure how much the cats like it, though.

Running up my very steep stairs on all fours like an animal.

If there are boats involved, consider me trapped. Especially if there are jets.

As a grown man, I love bubble baths. I have a 2-year-old son and his toys have started to infiltrate our master bath. Now I play with his toys when I'm in my bubble bath.

Is there any other reason to wear a long coat?

[rebelmouse-image 18350456 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I'm walking down the hallway at work, I flare my lab coat out like a cape and go "whoosh."

Honestly, they are so good. Especially soaked in vodka.

Fruit Snacks. Why don't they make them in adult sized servings?! A whole damn box of those isn't even an adult size serving.

Everybody does it.

[rebelmouse-image 18350458 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Picking my nose. You know that s*** feels good

If anyone deserves these treats, it's adults.

[rebelmouse-image 18350460 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

All the snacks and sweets targeted for kids, I am a grown man if I want animal crackers I'm eating animal crackers.

Nerf wars, but with beer.

[rebelmouse-image 18350461 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Nerf wars.

You're never too old to build with Legos.

[rebelmouse-image 18350462 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lego. My wife thinks I play with it because of the kids.

Giant trampolines never get old, and they are great exercise.

[rebelmouse-image 18350463 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My buddy got a big trampoline for his kids and I helped him set it up.

After the kids had tuckered themselves out, we got wasted and made that trampoline our b****.

You can jump so high when you're an adult, it's like being on the moon or something

Forever and always.

[rebelmouse-image 18350464 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Laughing at farts.

Playing make-believe while adulting is essential.

[rebelmouse-image 18350465 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'm never not playing make-believe.

I'm not swapping SD cards in a printer, I'm recalibrating isolinear chips before the warp core breach consumes the Enterprise

Basically, I'm always riding a dragon, tailing a double-agent, exploring an alien landscape, making a secret rendezvous.

It's just better.

Especially if it's chocolate chip.

[rebelmouse-image 18350466 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Raw cookie dough.

Naps are sacred and wonderful.

[rebelmouse-image 18350467 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Naps.

This seems like a great way to get away from the kids.

[rebelmouse-image 18350468 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Once a summer, my husband and I leave our son with a sitter and go to the local water park and ride water slides and relax in the lazy river to our heart's content - just the two of us.

String cheese is a healthy snack for all ages. And it's so delicious.

[rebelmouse-image 18350469 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

String cheese. Yes I pull it apart while I'm eating too.

Trolling is an art that gets better with age.

[rebelmouse-image 18350471 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Using alt accounts with edgy usernames to troll Reddit.

This is fun to do on the express train too.

[rebelmouse-image 18350473 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If a little kid is staring at me from a school bus, I give them the finger.

Take that, Random Kid!

A timelessly tasty snack for all of our inner kids.

[rebelmouse-image 18350474 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mac and cheese with cut up hot dogs in it. And it has to be the really cheap kind with the powdered cheese.

I'm 51 years old.

You're never too old to have a stuffed snuggle buddy.

[rebelmouse-image 18350475 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sleeping with a stuffed animal.

The moral of today's story? Keep your childhood alive.

[rebelmouse-image 18350476 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Childish humor. What's the point of growing up if I can't take the best parts of childhood with me?

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
