What's the point of being a grown up if you can't act childish when you want to?

As I was walking from the grocery store to the bus stop this afternoon, I saw a caterpillar creeping along the curb. "Ooh, caterpillar!" I said, and stopped and leaned over to watch it inch along. Then I heard laughter, and looked up to see a couple of women, also toting shopping bags, watching me watch the caterpillar. "You know," I said to them, "inside every grown man there's a little boy waiting to get out."
