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 McDonald's and think that it's a four-star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
I want to think M&M's are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to drink kool-aid, eat lemonheads and red hots with my friends.
I don't want to change clothes because I got a little dirty and my friends didn't care cause they were even dirtier than me.
I want to enjoy everyday like its summer vacation.
I want to return to a time when life was simple. When all you knew were
colors, multiplication tables, and tv show theme songs, but that didn't
bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't
care. All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware
of all the things that should make you worried 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, like a new hot wheel car every saturday.
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 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 and mankind.
I want to "dream of jeannie", and "bewitched". I want to go to "fantasy island" and take a trip on "the love boat".
I want to be in the roller derby and actually believe the three stooges are real.
So...here's my checkbook and My car-keys, my credit card bills and my
401K statements, my pager, my cellphone, my palm pilot, my fax machine
and my dvd player and last but not least my mortgate book. I am
officially resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss this
further, you'll have to catch me first...cause.............
