At what point in your life do you become a real deal adult?

If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably somewhere around the age of 32...

Now, you may wonder why I don't think turning 18 or 21 makes you an adult. But I've got a ton of personal reasons. The biggest reason, though, has to be using common household items, like once you've done certain things at home in the place, you pay a mortgage or rent on you're officially an adult.

I myself became an adult this week when I used the most common household item ever, BLEAH! Hear me out for a second... Don't get me wrong, I've used bleach for cleaning things around the house, toilets, floors, counters, all things coronavirus related, but I had never used bleach on clothing... Until this week, that is.

Why did it take me 32 years to bleach a load of white clothes? Welp, that's because, until this year, I hadn't been the girl who could wear whites. I'm mean, I'm still not the girl that can wear whites if I'm bleaching them constantly. LOL

Clearly, I'm still not an adult, but It got me thinking that I can't be the only one who is like this, so what household item have you never used?
