"Growing up means admitting you're getting old. That's like welcoming death..."


(Couldn't fit the whole quote up there, so here's the story.)

An angry old man scolds a boy for being so eluded, and tells him
to grow the fuck up, basically. The boy then says, boldly, proudly:

"Growing up means admitting you're getting old.
That's like welcoming death.
And while I don't fear death, I don't welcome it either.

I will never "grow up".

I haven't read the manga itself yet though. I was flicking through
for reference purposes (thanks for the hookity uppa Mark^^). And
well, this page's powerful words jump me on the way. I was like, O_O!

So remember kids, age is just a number. You're only as old as you feel.

On other news, hey I came a happy 3rd in the PSU Thanks Festa,
so thanksuu again to everyone who took their sweet time to vote! :)
