I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of a 6-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 ripples 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 - a time 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 that you didn't know things. All you cared about was being happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset. I want to believe that 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 things to be simple. I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, worrying about 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 cheque book, my car keys, my credit cards and bills, oh, and my stock options. I am officially resigning from adulthood and if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first.
