    People Are Sharing The Furniture They Bought Because "They're Adults And They Can," And I'm Obsessed

    I'd like a Sisyphus table in my house as soon as possible, please.

    When you're a kid, there are plenty of cool and fun things you wanna buy...but you can't, because you're a kid.

    And then you become and adult, and YOU CAN!!!

    In the spirit of being old enough to buy whatever the eff you want, TikTok user @chronicallycarl challenged her fellow grown-ups to share the "ridiculous piece of furniture" they've bought with their adult dollars before showing off her own — a lovely T. rex skull replica as the centerpiece for her dining table:

    It didn't take long for other people to start chiming in with their own "grown-up" purchases, and trust me, they didn't disappoint:

    1. This person bought an Alaskan king-size bed, which measures a whopping 9 by 9 feet:
