“I Quit…!!!”

kid-gives-the-finger

I am hereby officially tendering my
resignation as an adult… I have decided
I want to go back to 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 lie in the grass… and make animals out of the clouds that pass overhead…
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because I can eat them…
I want to run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer’s afternoon…
I want to return to a time when life was simple; When all I knew were colors, multiplication tables, and baseball batting averages… but that didn’t bother me… because I didn’t know how much more I didn’t know… and I didn’t care…
All I knew was to be happy… because I was blissfully unaware of all the things that should have made me worried or upset…
I want to think the world is fair again… That folks are honest and good…
I want to believe that anything is possible… I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life… and be wildly excited by the little things…
I want to live simply 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 list of magazine subscriptions… I am officially resigning from adulthood…
And if anybody wants to discuss this further… you’ll have to catch me first, cause…
“Tag! you’re it.”
