Peter Principle

I realized it with the force of a car crash on Saturday night:

I want a man who needs help getting back to being a boy.

I do not want a boy who needs help becoming a grown-up.

I have great respect for the ability to laugh and have wonder and joy, especially as we all get older.  But there is a distinct difference — and once you see it in a person, you can’t unsee it.
