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 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


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 imagination, mankind, 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."

When did mickey d's not become a 4 star resturant?
I never plan to grow up I never saw much point in it, and when my niece and nephew are near you can tell I havn't grown up. Have you ever made hats from the branches of a weeping willow? In the summer see who could fine the biggest dandilion (which by the way are flowers not weeds like most people think) or in the winter have contests to see who's icile grew the longest, and then when time for spring thaw to start have sword fights with the icicles.

You were lucky if you thought the world was fair when you were a kid I had an older brother and 2 younger sibling most popular phrase round here after "Not me" was "Thats not fair!"
