Everyone knew about it. Everyone, especially the bigger, cooler kids.
What does this word actually mean? To grow up.
Why can't they just say 'grow'. Why is there a need to add the word 'up' to it?
I mean how do you know if you've grown enough to reach up?
Is 'Up' 21,? or 30? or 69? or even 100?
Or does 'UP' represent something else like your level of education? Your job? Your income?
Do we ever stop growing to reach up?
Is there a certain age, or well, time in your life where you can fully say "I've grown up! , I no longer need to go on growing!"
I mean, isn't that the cockiest thing to say? To say that you've grown so much that you do not need any more improvements.
That's why I could never understand the term 'grown up'.
I'm 22 this year and I still don't think of myself as a grown up. Heck, I don't think you should consider yourself as a grown up either! There's always more growing to do!
And why 'grow up'?
Since you can never stop growing up, shouldn't it be called grow infinity instead?
But then again, I know of people who age but don't grow UP. They sometimes grow down. Or not grow at all. Which in that case, means they are growing sideways.
Some words in english have completely no meaning.
Since Mathilda never grew enough to reach UP, she never found out what a hickey was.
May this be a lesson to all parents.
Don't dodge your kids' questions.
It's always better to have a curious kid than a brutally raped and murdered one.
