[IP] My 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 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&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
>> colours, 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 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 to live simply 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, bills, gossip,
>> illness, and the 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 chequebook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my
>> RSP 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."
