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&M's 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 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
check book and my car-keys, my credit card bills and all my
statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood. And
if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first,

"Tag! You're it."
(Pass this to someone and brighten their day by helping them remember
the simple things of life.)

Life's short...do it NOW!!
