A monologue from the play by Jules Feiffer
I once wanted to grow up, but then I took a look at the grown-ups around me – complaining about the jobs they hate and dying from boredom months after they retire from them.
Picking wives out of girls they’re not attracted to and remaining attracted to girls who they think are tramps.
Watching T.V. six nights a week so they don’t have to talk to the family, joining a club one night a week so they can talk to the boys.
Preaching to their kids about their inalienable rights, and then when the kids try to exercise a few, warning the to grow up.
Mister to my generation, NOT wanting to grow up is a sign of maturity.
