Mature or wise?

Mature or wise?

A Poem by Alex Falkner
"

Which one are you?

"

 

 Being mature means you don't do all that stupid s**t you used to when you were younger.

 

Being wise means you're smart enough not to get caught any more.

This cracked me up! When I was a child, I thought when I grew up, I would be a mature adult and know everything. What a shock to find I am not mature, do not know everything, but, ah, I am very wise.

But if I am mature enough not to do the dumb stuff, why would I need to be wise enough to avoid being caught??
Or maybe I'm wise enough to realize it was stupid, and mature enough to plan it better??

ROFLOL...

Cute and clever write, Tammi...thanks for sharing it with me!!

Thanks for reading, hope it made you smile.
and all this time i thought being mature meant that-- now that you've outgrown one set of stupid activities-- you find a whole set of new stupid s**t to do...

In the Marines they award people with "Good Conduct" medals. Upon being rewarded before your peers, many would holler out, "you just didn't get caught".

True for some! :D

Which am I? I do not know.
