A coworker just made fun of me for renting not owning

A group of us went out to lunch and they were all bellowing about their mortgages/cost of home upkeep etc. Someone said, "You're keeping quiet!" and I replied that I rent an apartment, I do not own. And this COLLEAGUE of mine said: "Some day you'll grow up like the rest of us!" and guffawed. Everyone kind of chuckled, I think it was a self-deprecating joke or an attempt at one, but now I feel extraordinarily self-conscious about my living arrangements. I had no idea that it was a mark of adulthood to be a home owner. I am also frankly kind of worried about it affecting my reputation at work, like somehow I am seen as less responsible or mature than my suburban home-owning peers. Crap. Maybe I am overthinking this, but I feel like crappo.
