John Marsden Writing Topic #485

‘Growing up beats throwing up.’ Do you agree?**

This such a weird quote to me, I wasn’t actually sure whether Marsden was quoting something or someone, but considering he usually acknowledges when he does, I assume he made it up.

To answer the question, I believe growing up does beat throwing up. With growing up, you can almost do whatever you want, as when you grow up, you have responsibilities, most of them boring and hard. Throwing up is horrible, especially for someone like me who suffers from reflux and throwing up is a common occurrence. Growing up is forever, throwing up is temporary and with growing up you can actually do something with your life, with throwing up you obviously can’t.

I personally found this the weirdest personal writing topic in the bunch.
