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 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 un aware 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 being constantly brow beaten by my spouse, learning how to survive with 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 taking my dogs on a "social tour".

So . . . here's my cash, my car-keys, my cell phone and my day planner I am officially resigning from adulthood.

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


"You're it."

Amias, when you play marbles, see if you can find mine.

WIXY, I think I found yours along with mine and some others that were just hangin' out. Anyway, they said they knew you.....a few of mine escaped me before I could catch them in the velvet bag. :(
Lemme' know if they show up in Ohio!
