A LETTER OF RESIGNATION
To Whom It May Concern:

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 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!"
