Simply can’t be bothered to write anything new today…
Are you an adult?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines adult as –
A person who is fully grown or developed.
Now I have issues with this. I can concede that I’m fully grown. I.e. I’m not likely to grow any more, in fact I think I’m shrinking (except for my ears). But fully developed?
I don’t think so.
If I were then surely I wouldn’t need to spell-check everything? How come I still play stupid, possibly harmful pranks? Why don’t I have all the answers?
I think we need a new word.
How about smexper?
Sufficiently More EXperienced PERson.
It could work –
A child must be accompanied by an smexper.
I like it. It fulfills the requirements of the meaning of adult yet is not definitive. There is room for adjusting the terms of ‘sufficiently more experienced’ without the catch-all broadness…
