Ever stop yourself from being silly? Maybe you really want to ride that scooter around the toy store, conduct a Chinese Fire Drill at the intersection or turn up the volume on a stereo at Best Buy and dance wildly? Was your reason for not doing it, because someone might see you or worse see you and pass judgement on you? Maybe that judgement will be in the form of a silent, dirty look or a not so silent comment.
Those turned up noses that use to only belong to your elders, now belong to your peers and younger, as well. When did we lose our inner child and why? Surely we can be counted on to be responsible and maintain some silliness. Is silliness or goofiness synonymous with irresponsibility?

Does it mean your not capable of paying your bills on time or remembering to maintenance your car? Where's the data to support that?
