What’s the Point of Growing up, if You Can’t be Childish Sometimes?

As I write this, I was unable to watch the new episode of Doctor Who. I acted completely childish, but no one saw me. I’m not mentioning this to point out that I am still a child; just ask anyone who knows me, I am a 24-year old child.
I figure I’m owed it. In my childhood, I saw my great grandmother die, and moved too many times to keep record of. Good friends stopped being friends, bad people turned out to be good friends; good times where had, as were the bad; had my first kiss, did a bit of work, got into some trouble, with the my friends.
I am lying in bed typing this on my phone. Some people I know would tell me that I don’t have kids, so I’m not grown. I say bullocks! Having kids does not make you an adult. It’s how you act that makes you an adult. I love my nephews, and I feel like an adult; to me, that makes you an adult.
I saw my father pass away in his mid 50’s, and he was both the most childish, and most adult man all at the same time.
I can have conversations with the most complex natures, yet I can still watch cartoons and play video games with kids. In my heart I feel that I am an adult.
In the immortal words of Tom Baker, “What is the point of being an adult, if you can’t be completely childish sometimes?”
Life is all about staying young, no matter how old you are. If you are over 100, but you feel 20, then stay young.
Stay young, my friends, stay young!
