    Just received this from my daughter:

    RESIGNATION

    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&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 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 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 know I couldn't wait to get to 21, now I'm nearly there and all I want is to be back in Jr. High. It was all so easier then.. :)

    No joke. I would love to go back to being a junior in HS. Old enough to have a part time job, but still 99% subsidized by the parents.

    Heck, I would even be happy to get back to the 80's when all we had to worry about was Mutually Assured Destruction!

    BTW, it sounds like she just wants to become a liberal! :wtf:

    that's what liberals really are. people who refuse to grow up. i would say everyone has the 'inner child' ---see favorite cereal post---especially now that ebay allows us to get the toys we wanted but never got as kids. Or even collect stuff from back when we were kids because we now can afford (thats questionable) to.

    Liberals take it to the extreme-they still want the world to cater to their individual needs instead of growing up and contributing. It's a wonderful thought, but the world just don't -and won't- work that way.

    Who, me?!

    I think life gets better as you get older. There is no way I would ever go back to a younger age.
