Why long for childhood?

Life is far more engaging when lived as a teenager.

First memory of self-consciousness.

I am staring at a black girl who is staring at me: we are both about five years old, waiting for fast food with our mothers.

Children can be so cruel.

I don’t trust anyone who wants to recapture their childhood innocence.

Wit is candid about its cruelty.

Cruel children are the best candidates for adolescent cleverness.

The planet swarms with drones.

Yet it’s not too late to rekindle that childhood fascination with bugs and beetles.
