I tried to explain it on The Cloud Factory, there’s a difference, you see, a difference between childish and childLIKE.
Childish is nothing like childLIKE,
which is all about exploration and wonder and wow
and no creative rules whatsoever, nosiree
we make it up as we go along
and sing a song and jump in the puddle
all covered in muddles of mud
then we slide down the hill to defend the castle from the raging hordes
as dragons leap to the air and tigers roar
we beat them back to the river with our wooden swords
and swim to the lake just to make sure
then race back to the fire for tea.
And we all know how stompy childish can be.
There’s a difference, you see, a difference between childish and childLIKE.
