Have we forgotten how to have fun?

Every day, billions of people continue their lives, doing the same old thing, again and again each day, for years and years on end. At this point, is it safe to say that we've forgotten exactly what it felt like when we were younger? You know, the days of summer vacation, where we had absolutely no responsibilities. Our parents payed for the bills and fed us... We didn't have jobs... We didn't have school... the worst we'd have to put up with was chores, or some sort of drama that went on in your life. Otherwise, we were free to simply have fun.
Don't you miss those carefree days?

Well, I do what I can to keep things like the way they were 10 years ago. There may be too many bindings in today's society to keep somebody carefree, and I certainly have too many responsibilities to do whatever I please, but that doesn't stop me from doing something exciting every day. It doesn't stop you from making each sunrise and sundown an adventure.
We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.
