Graduation

They sat on the living room floor and opened up wide their toy box heads. Sharing secrets and puzzles and games, and toys of endless charm and wonder, whispering and shouting, talking and laughing, until their cheeks were wet with tears, faces aching from smiles. They danced and sang until, as children often do, they wandered off in search of more adventure. After a while, they came to a place where most everything was Real Business and Taken Very Seriously. Realizing they did not know the way back, they clung together for a time. After a while in this place, they learned it’s ways, as children often do. Being embarrassed by the way they had acted in the before time, they could not look each other in the eye ever again. - Lord David "Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them." — Dr. Seuss
