I am hereby officially tenderingmy resignation as an adult. I havedecided I would like to accept theresponsibilities of an 8 year-old again.I want to go to McDonald' and thinkthat it's a four star restaurant.I want to sail sticks across a fresh mudpuddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.I want to think M&Ms are better thanmoney because you can eat them.I want to lie under a big oak tree andrun a lemonade stand with my friends ona hot summer's day.I want to return to a time when life wassimple; When all you knew were colors,multiplication tables and nurseryrhymes, but that didn't bother you,because you didn't know what youdidn't know and you didn't care.All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware ofall the things that should make youworried or upset.I want to think the world is fair.That everyone is honest and good.I want to believe that anything ispossible. I want to be obliviousto the complexities of life and beoverly excited by the little thingsagain.I want to live simple again. Idon't want my day to consist ofcomputer crashes, mountains of paperwork,depressing news, how to survive more daysin the on this earth than there is money in thebank, doctor bills, gossip, illness,and loss of loved ones.I want to believe in the power ofsmiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,justice, peace, dreams, the imagination,mankind, and making angels in the snow.So . . . here's my checkbookand my car-keys, my credit card billsand my 401K statements. I am officiallyresigning from adulthood.And if you want to discuss thisfurther, you'll have to catch mefirst, cause.............."Tag! You're it."
