Drunken Train Musings

What is it that makes a 9-year old look wiser beyond his years? Is is the glasses, black wire rimmed? Is it the way he holds onto his luggage with the experience of a seasoned traveler? It can't be the way he studies the luggage tag like he's never really viewed one before, or maybe it is because of that because as an "adult" I've never really looked at the information contained on them other than the ORD for O'Hare or the MDW for Midway. What do the graphs mean? What is the other information? How do kids become adults? Where does that transformation happen? Why do I look at some kids with the delight of what they have yet to learn, and others with the pity of what they have seen in their young lives?
