How old are you, anyway?

I've always prided myself on being mature. I'm not sure why, exactly, but it is the case. I have a few quirks, though, that are especially childlike (or childish), and I just don't want to let them go.
  • I adore kiddie cereals (MaltOMeal brand, of course). I know that granola is the best for me, but all I really want is Lucky Charms! It has marshmallows for pete's sake! And don't even try to give me Cheerios unless you've put sugar on that bowl of cereal first.
  • I can only read digital thermometers. Really. I just can't see the line on those mercury-based glass thermometers.
  • I really don't like my food to touch. Actually, it all boils down to flavors. Peas in mashed potatoes are fine. Peaches in mashed potatoes are NOT fine. Those flavors should not and do not go together. Gravy on salad? No thank you. This is one reason I really like to make my own plate.
  • Sometimes I eat nothing but candy all day.
  • I get really eager about surprises and sometimes feel like I just can't be patient enough to wait to find out.
What are some kid-like things you refuse to give up?
