    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&Msare 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 hotsummer'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 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."

    Now remember the Simple Things in Life.

    ((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

    Repeat after me... :D

    * Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
    * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
    * Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
    * Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
    * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
    * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
    * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
    * Never buy a car you can't push.
    * Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
    * Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
    * The second mouse gets the cheese.
    * When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
    * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
    * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
    * Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
    * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
    * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

    Sage words Primster,

    I tried to pin down the one that best described me...but it was impossible to choose!! Mebbe you should post this in Cheater's thread about his long distance dilemma.

    I'm not sure I even need to join you -- sure, plenty of adult responsibilities, but I think in lots of ways I never did give up my childhood.

    A couple of months shy of 60 now, and for Christmas I still vastly prefer getting things that are fun (games) or at least interesting (books) to things I really need, like new socks or underwear.

    :) Age is an attitude, and lately I have been accused of having a bad attitude.

    I am "Peter Pan", I am "Dennis The Menace" and I am "The Wildman". I don't want to ever grow up.

    Thanks
    Wildman
    :eek: :p

    As I improperly used .... and mis-spelled .... the word 'admitted' I must make amends. The word should have been 'committed'! There is no appeal....you cannot pass Go or collect $200.

    Zip...Bam....Socko...into the padded room!!

    BTW.....not so hard w/the Maaaassage!
