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 Anand Continental and think that it's a 2-star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle. I want to see who can blow the biggest bubble.
I want to think 'toy cars' and 'dolls (laidhis)' are better than money because you can play with them.
I want to drink 'sugarcane juice,and eat 'keli-chana ' with my friends.
I don't want to change clothes because I got a little dirty. I want to
enjoy everyday like its summer vacation. I want to return to a time
when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and AIR
theme songs, 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, like a new hot
wheel. 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 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 and mankind. I
want to be in the 'Lampak' and actually believe 'churanthabas' are real.
So...here's my checkbook and my car-keys, my credit card bills
and my 401K statements, my pager, my Cell Phone, my palm pilot, lap top,
my fax machine and my DVD player, yahoo password, e-pao chat ID, and last
but not least my mortgage book. I am officially resigning from adulthood.
