    20 Signs You Grew Up In A Pond

    Pond life isn't always easy, but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything.

    1. Your mom was probably a little bit overprotective when you were young.

    2. But you're pretty much OK with that.

    3. You're really great at swimming ...

    4. But frankly, you need a little work on your sidewalk technique.

    5. But you keep practicing because your mom taught you never to give up no matter how silly you look.

    6. Not that it matters, because you got used to people stopping traffic for you at an early age.

    7. Unfortunately, nobody ever listens to what you have to say.

    8. They are more interested in trying to put you in small containers.

    9. ... or wrap you up in a little towel. As if you need to dry off! LOL.

    10. Most dogs find you confusing and possibly slightly terrifying.

    11. But that's OK, because your best friend is a cat.

    12. Actually, pretty much everyone you know is best friends with a cat. Sometimes it feels like there aren't enough cats to go around!

    13. That being said, you and your feline friends don't always have the same sense of humor.

    14. Rabbits, on the other hand, are universally HILARIOUS to you.

    15. Every baby elephant you've ever met totally gets it too.

    16. No matter how much time you spend on your hair, it always comes out looking odd.

    17. And your fashion sense has never felt quite "with the times."

    18. But that's OK, because you have the world's GREATEST ideas for a romantic date.

    19. ... you always have the best time with your friends.

    20. ... and when the occasion calls for it, you know how to be straight-up majestic.
