Marking Time

While we wait for this bloggist to shake loose time to blog more or less seriously again, I offer the following for my half-dozen readers' amusement and bemusement: there's a world of difference between the two nearly-identical words, childlike and childish.

Which one is this?

Sherwood (front) and Diane (second seat) on Disneyland's Splash Mountain, September 20, 2007.

This is child-like.

And it's wonderful. This is a picture I would treasure for the rest of my life if I was you.

There's a lot of Sherwood and Diane in that picture.

It's like the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs, kind of.

One word gets used to describe one's self, the other to describe others.

No, I didn't, Dann, not on the one that made it to print.
