Do We Ever Really Grow Up?
Today I was eating lunch at our local Wendy's. Just across from me was a group of tables, pulled together to accommodate a contingent of Sr. Adults. As more and more arrived, they embarked on a lively conversation about lousy service they had experienced at other fast food places. Their conversation was peppered with profanity, and interestingly, the women held their own with the men in the cussing competition. It reminded me of times when I've signed up without a partner to play golf with the association where I live. I've been partnered with some of the most profane guys around. It almost seems as if they are once again in Middle School and trying out all the curse words they can come up with. The last guy I played with dropped "f'" bombs left and right, and never seemed to think a thing about it.
I think it may be that we grow older, but not UP. Somehow our development gets arrested along the way and we never progress beyond a certain point. What do you think?
