grown-ups are such complicated beings

Grown-ups love figures. When you tell them you have made a new friend, they never ask you questions about essential matters. They never say to you "What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?" Instead, they demand, "How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?" Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.
