Be a Different Stupid

I was talking with Will Hindmarch yesterday about, well, a lot of random subjects[1], and I said “ah, to be young and stupid.”

There was a pause, a stare, and I was compelled to add “Okay, I’m less young now, but still young. And I’m a different stupid.”

And then that became the conversation, about how we should be willing to risk being different-stupid, to throw ourselves in unfamiliar arenas in life and have to learn over again. And, most of all, to not be the same-stupid, to grow and learn and (most important here!) change.

The conversation went on from there to talking about this and that, but talking about being a different stupid registered as something I should say here. So be a different stupid, folks. Don’t be the same stupid you were a one, two, five, ten years ago.

And if you can help it, and I do hope you can, be a better stupid.
