A friend of mine has undergone some unpleasant experience recently and while communicating the details to me concluded with – “Sometimes, we gotta shut up, swallow our pride and accept that we are wrong. It is not giving up, it is growing up.”

I could well sympathise her as this is an experience that all of us undergo at some time or the other in our lives. Perhaps even more than just once.

I however decided to cheer him up and offered my two bits as follows:

“The problem is that I cannot grow up any more! I seem to be able to grow only sideways.”
