Growing Up To Do 

I know you are, but what am I?”

Remember that kid from fifth grade? That little riposte constituted his entire arsenal of comebacks. Slam him with the most devastating put-down the schoolyard had ever seen and he’d always hit you with that same trite retort, a lame bit of rhetorical judo that sought to co-opt your insult and turn it back on you. The sheer feebleness of it rendered it unanswerable.

You do remember that kid, right? Ever wonder what happened to him?
