    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 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. 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 could make you worried or upset.
    - 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.

    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!"

    I hated it worse when the teacher removed the rubber and ball, and leaned me over a chair.

    Oh yes. Let's go build a tree house fort in that giant sugar gum tree in the woods behind the house. (The tree and fort was bulldozed down for housing. One of my first life's disappointments, but I survived :grin:)

Is that stove really hot, that dog won't bite me it likes me, look a bunch of yellow flying bugs comming from that hole in the grounud--wonder what happens when I do THIS:chased:
