My Resignation (4/18/13)
With all the evil in the world today and the recent loss of friends and loved ones, I have discovered that growing older is not as much fun as I thought it would be…so today..this morning…I want to offer you ….My Resignation:
I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of a 5
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 skip rocks
on a pond.
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 watch the ants walk up it's trunk.
I want to think a quarter is more than a dollar bill cause it's
prettier and weighs more.
I want to go fishing and care more about catching the minnows along the
shore than the big bass in the lake.
I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes.
When all I knew was to be happy because I was blissfully unaware of all the things that should worry me.
I want to think the world is fair, and people are honest and good.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited
by the little things again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
surviving more days in the month than there's money in the bank,
doctor bills, gossip, illness, and losses of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,
dreams, imagination, a kiss that makes a boo boo go away,
making angels in the snow.
So....here's my checkbook and my keys, credit cards and bills too,
my 401K statements, my stocks and bonds, my collections, insurance premiums,
job, house and the payments too,
my email address, cell phone, computer, and watch.
I am officially resigning from adulthood.
And if you want to discuss this with me further,
you'll have to catch me first, cause,
