My Resignation

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&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 colours, 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,
utility bills,
and the loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, and a kind word;
and making angels in the snow.

So . . . here's my cheque book and my car keys, my credit card bills.

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."

When I was eight I didn't think the world was fair. I just thought it was supposed to be fair.

So I whined a lot shout.gif

I think I'd have to go back to around three.

I bet you started thinking about free will and similar stuff early, too, hm? (unless the above was just a joke)

Hey Chris,

That'll teach you for taking those rose tinted glasses off.

The problem is, knowledge is power, but fear is the mind killer!

As a child you have no fear, because you know nothing, the more you know, the more you have to fear!

So put those glasses back on, spin round really, really fast, and don't fear falling over and hurting yourself, or damaging your clothes, or loosing you jewelry or looking like an idiot, or caring if someone thinks you're drunk!

I resigned as an adult long ago. In fact, as I love rugby so much (the game not the place), i doubt i ever WAS an adult smile.gif
