Grandpa: Happy Birthday, dude! So, do you feel any different now that you’re six?
Dude: (Sighs heavily) It’s not like it changes your life.
Just a minute, Grandpa, I can’t hear you. I have to tell Mom to stop laughing so loud.
Oh kid, I have to humbly disagree. Six will turn your universe upside down. Every year, when you’re small, changes the hell out of you. You come out of each age knowing 100% more than you did going into it. When you’re in your thirties, forties, fifties, spans of 5 years can go by, and yeah, you’d be hard-pressed to say that you grew or changed or did anything but settle and stagnate.
Six is big.
