"What is lame when you're young, but cool when you're older?" –– Plenty, believe it or not. This was today's burning question fired off by Redditor FiredUpRedHeadRock, who reminded us that there's no shame in growing up. Life is bound to get a bit easier when you're feeling more self assured!

To those of you concerned about being "lame" now: There's hope.


"Sitting around the table..."

Sitting around the table talking with friends. As a kid I never understood how my parents and their friends could just drink coffee and talk. Now, I get it.

"Man, now that I'm an adult..."

Home Depot. Man, now that I'm an adult, every time I go in I see stuff I want to buy. It's like grown up version of Toys R Us.

"Museums."

Museums. I used to hate being forced to go to museums. Now whenever I visit a new place the first thing I look for are art and history museums.

"Staying in..."

Staying in on a weekend night. Relaxing at home and watching a movie is now my perfect Friday night.

"Going for walks..."

Going for walks in nature. I love being among trees. As a kid I just wanted to play Kirby Superstar.

"Having dinner..."

Having dinner and hanging with your parents. I'd give my right arm to have, not only a home cooked meal, but to just hang with my parents.

"Boring..."

Boring summer days when your parents were at work and you had nothing to do. I used to feel all bummed out on those days.

Now, I live for the days where the house is clean, errands are done, and no one wants to hang out.

"Having fun..."

Having fun, even embarrassing yourself to do so, in public. I remember being really young, like 11, and refusing to have normal kid fun because I thought it would look silly. Which looks the exact opposite. Who cares what you look like.. have some fun before you die.

"I'll even take..."

Slippers. Love kicking off my shoes and putting those soft squishy things on my feet when I get home. I'll even take the trash out in 'em, I don't care.

"Hanging out..."

Hanging with parents. Used to hate it as a kid but when i got older I realized there's limited time for it and you'll definitely regret the moments you didn't take when they're gone.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.

They get to witness the lead-up to the couple's important, deeply symbolic day. Sitting at the table in that context offers those industry professionals a glimpse of the mundane dynamics of couples before the big event.
