5. And when you were growing up they probably called you a "good influence".

8. When it's your birthday, you request only practical gifts from your loved ones.

When I was 11 somebody bought me a toaster for Christmas and I guess I was pretty happy

"I have a disproportionately low number of teaspoons so yes, teaspoons please. What do you mean that's weird?"

9. Although you try to remember your mates might not appreciate practical things on their birthday.

And probably inspect the soles for five minutes, to check for "good grip".

14. In fact, sensible clothes are just incredibly important to you.

15. At house parties you've found yourself in charge of making sure the host's house doesn't get destroyed.

I'm just gonna clean up this spill before it stains, you kids have fun though.

16. "Let's not do anything rash" has basically become your catchphrase.

17. Spontaneity isn't really your cup of tea, how will you prepare for all the possible outcomes?

I hate spontaneity I need plans I need order I need pre meditated intentions I need to read your itinerary & approve it

Where are we going? What are we doing? Do I need a jacket? Should I pack a sandwich?

18. Your idea of a "late night" means having seven hours sleep instead of eight.

19. And looking back, your teenage rebellion was probably short-lived and not all that rebellious.
