"Childhood is a time for pretending and trying on maturity to see if it fits or hangs baggy, tastes good or bitter, smells nice or fills your lungs with smoke that makes you cough. It's sharing licks on the same sucker with your best friend before you discover germs. It's not knowing how much a house cost, and caring less.

Childhood is where 'competition' is a baseball game and 'responsibility' is a paper route." ~ Erma Bombeck
