What's so great about growing up?
The way it looks to me, everything slows way down. It's like they put
you in this harness and then they make you pull and the next thing you know
you're an ox - big and heavy and slow. And dull. That's the worst part. You
look at people over thirty and you know exactly how they're going to be.
They've got their job and they've got their ideas and maybe they're married and
so they've got that too, and they just get into their groove and they start walking
it, you know, they just keep going round and round in it until it becomes this rut
and after a while it gets so deep that the best they can do is not sink in it, sink
until they disappear.
So what I'm saying is, what's the point? Why would you want to end
up like that, when you can be young and take chances and have ideas? You
know, while you still can be somebody? Have a life. Why would you want to do
that, huh? Why would you want to just like give up?
It's not like you don't have a choice.
