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.
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 & Ms
are better than money
because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree
and run a lemonade stand with my
friends on a hot summer's day.
I want to return to a time when
life was simple; When all you
knew were colors, multiplication
tables, and nursery rhymes, 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.
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, doctor bills, 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
and making angels in the snow.
So... here's my checkbook and
my car-keys, my credit card
bills and my 401K statements.
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."
