Being young is so much fun, why do we allow ourselves to change? Misery of responsibility? Burdens? We have these as a kid too... thinking about it this DOES end childhood!
To hell with being 'old' and miserable. I want to be a kid forever (peter pan complex!)- the robot made me so happy but not because I wanted it as a kid but because I wanted it now. I love 'kiddish' things and I won't lie. Maybe people will find it stupid but my perfect life involves never having to cook/clean/iron, being able to sleep and wake when I want, playing all day (computer games, jumping around, etc).
