Henry, You know tw's script by heart. You know he's going to twist your words and call you a child like it's a bad thing. But he'll die soon of excess adultness, while the picture in the attic gets younger.

You on the other hand, crow about being an individual, a free soul, while paying taxes, following the rules of the road, avoiding arrest, and meshing with the other members of society. Methinks you're a rebel in spirit living a cooperative, go-along-to-get-along, life.
Nothing wrong with that.

Tw's gonna to write his own epitaph. That's why he wants to be buried under Trump's border wall. It'll be the only tombstone big enough to hold it.

Absolutely nothing wrong with that. Because that is also being a team player. Despite denials - that is what a team player does - even on highways.

Adults who are adults are responsible because they understand why is it necessary. Adults who are children do so to avoid consequences and resulting pain.

Adult children who neither suffer nor fear consequences remain anti-social and problematic. Not because they are a free spirit. Because they are not a team player.

This is the year of the Chicken. Free dinners for all. As China demonstrates, smog and polluted waterways do not matter.

But leave your rooster alone.

You can choke the chicken and have a chicken dinner too.

That would be you, carrying flint. Tw and I are in the background. Those are the two who look like they may be in agreement; though, appearances can be deceiving.

Yeah.

"You on the other hand..."

Absolutely, I'm boring and conventional...sensibly cooperative, pointedly peaceable, moderately pleasant.

What I'm not is communitarian, pacifistic, stupid.

I'll take your word for not communitarian, believe not pacifistic, and sure you're definitely not stupid.
What remains is, ketchup or mustard?
