Just because.

Adults do not understand what “Just because” means.

Everything they do has a reason.

That is why they do not like to dress up like Jokers,

People who like to laugh about other People, as long as the other People don’t know.

Children are like that too, but they don’t care if the People they are laughing at do know.

Sometimes they even tell them.

Adult People talk Politely, even when they are saying something that is not Polite at all.

Children are only Polite when they want to be, because they would rather say what they feel like saying.

For example, they might see a man standing in a

Sometimes children
