The Phases of Adulthood

A good one here from a blogger I really like…

Mitch Teemley


Why are there so many names for the different phases of life from birth through teens (baby, toddler, pre-schooler, kindergartner, grade-schooler, pre-teen, tweener) and almost none for the 60+ years that follow?

It’s not fair! I mean, you’re not just young, then old! For example, I clearly hit Second Puberty around age 40, when all of those little hairs started popping out in weird places.

Here are a few name suggestions for the different

Phases of Adulthood

  • 20s: Hipper-than-You-ers, Not Fairers, Communists
  • 30s: Still-Got-It-ers, Owned-by-My-Kids-ers, Democrats
  • 40s: Trying-to-Keep-It-ers, Our-Music-Was-Better-than-Yours-ers, Moderates
  • 50s: Had-More-Than-You-Ever-Will-ers, Bend-Over-Groaners, Republicans
  • 60s: Wait-Where-Did-I-Put-It-ers, Fascists
  • 70s: I-Don’t-Need-a-Cane-ers, All-Politicians-are-the-Same-ers
  • 80s: Where’s-My-Cane-ers, Communists

What names would yousuggest for the Phases of Adulthood?
