In Public

The four boys are pretty young to be out this late, and they are making the most of their evening. One of them attempts to climb the walk/don't walk sign while the others chant "Spider-man, Spider-man, Spider-man!"

I smile at their shenanigans as I walk past, and it occurs to me that you know you're a grown-up when you no longer feel nervous walking by kids or teenagers, because you know that you are, in fact, invisible to them. 

When one of them chastises the others for making a scene "in public" another one retorts, "Everywhere is 'in public!'"
