I Resign!!

I am hereby officially tendering my
resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the
responsibilities of an eight-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 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

I want to be oblivious
to the complexities of life
and be overly excited by the little things.
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 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."

Heh... the flipside to this is that poem about being old and wearing a purple dress and a red hat, and not giving a toss about what anyone things.

Me, I'm just biding my time until I can claim senility (whether I've earned it or not), at which point I am going to be an unholy terror to pretty much everyone around me...
