This Is Fun... Growing Up...

This is fun

Some creative children change a word or two, playfully speaking in code languages that the adults couldn't pick up what they're saying. Effortlessly, these children can bluff the adults. They might talk in front of you, openly, yet you wouldn't be able to grasp what they're saying.

This is not fun anymore

The same creativity of being able to speak in codes is found in one adult or two, here and there, around us all, at all times... The conversation is not fun anymore when adults started altering the meanings of two to three key words in a conversation: the conversation ultimately results at some point in having the speaker and the audience talk past one another.

The children's codes and bluffs are pretty harmless. But the adult's codes and bluffs are a whole different thing altogether because the adult's codes and bluffs invert the entire landscape of reality, which is not fun anymore.

This is the lesson

Ubiquitously found everywhere are some adults who have the body of an adult yet they have the mind of a child and that of all the childish, nasty tricks.

Learning that lesson is part of growing up and becoming an adult.
