This will be a bigger problem someday. But for now, I will ignore it.

Grown-ups scare me. I don't really know how to play their games. How to smile on command and pretend. I don't know how to talk to them or sit with them or talk about other grown-ups with them. This has been true all my life, and I feel like I'm always waiting for it to go away.

But I'm 21 and would still rather be hiding in a closet upstairs with a bunch of 10-year-olds, pretending that the monster is coming, rather than sitting around a table, drinking tea with the real monsters.

I choose to live as a child. At least at heart. I think a bigger problem than this would be to lose my sense of curiosity, of wonder, of imagination. That, to me, would be a tragedy.
