Grownups Share The Most Childish Things They Still Enjoy

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?

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?

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

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

Forever and always.

Laughing at farts.

Playing make-believe while adulting is essential.

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.

Raw cookie dough.

Naps are sacred and wonderful.

Naps.

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

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.

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