It's Official

I am hereby officially tendering
my resignation as an adult. I have
decided I would like to accept the
responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to a picnic and think
that it's a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a stream
and make a dam with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms are better than
money because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and
play doctors and nurses with my friends on
a hot summer's day.

I want to return to a time when life was
simple; When all I knew were colors,
multiplication tables, and nursery
rhymes, and it didn't bother me,

because I didn't know what I didn't know and
I didn't care.

All I knew was to be happy
because I was blissfully unaware
of all the things that should make me worry or upset.

I want to think the world is fair.
That everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is
possible. I want to be oblivious
to the complexities of life and be
overly excited by the little things again.

I want to live simple again. I
don't want my day to consist of
computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
depressing news, how to survive more days
in the month than there is money in the
bank, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of
smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,
justice, peace, dreams, the imagination,
mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So .. . . here's my cheque book
and my car-keys, my credit card bills
and my mobile phone . I am officially
resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this
further, you'll have to catch me
first, cause...

..."Tag! You're it."

whose joining me?

I didn't have a childhood I would like to relieve at all, so I act like a kid now to make up for it.

I'm now 41 years old and I tried that over the weekend. I could only regress to a young teenager by putting our Honda 80cc mini scooter in the ditch. My face got all scratched up and Pie was furious.
