Default I Hereby Tender My Resignation...

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........
>

Oh Donna . . . I'm chasing you around the playground. Why should my 4 kids be the only ones that get to play?

Maybe a cruisemates BBQ is required at a "Fun park" of some kind?

Donna >>> here's Lyrics from an old song to (maybe) make it all better now......



THEY'RE COMING TO TAKE ME AWAY (Artist: Napoleon XIV)

Remember when you ran away
And I got on my knees and begged you
Not to leave because I´d go beserk?
WELL,

You left me anyhow and
Then the days got worse and worse
And now you see I´ve gone completely
out of my mind

AND

They´re coming to take me away,
Haha, they´re coming to take me away,
Ho ho, hee hee, ha ha,
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I´ll be happy to see
Those nice young men
In their clean white coats
And they´re coming to take me AWAY,
HA HAAAA

You thought it was a joke,
and so you LAUGHED, YOU LAUGHED!
When I had said that losing you
Would make me flip my lid,

RIGHT?

You know you laughed.
I HEARD you laugh, you laughed
And laughed and laughed
And then you left,
But now you know I´m utterly mad

AND

They´re coming to take me away,
Haha, they´re coming to take me away,
Ho ho, hee hee, ha ha,
To the happy home with trees and flowers
And chirping birds and basket weavers
Who sit and smile and
Twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they´re coming to take me away,
HAHAAAAAAAAA

I cooked your food,
I cleaned your house,
And this is how you pay me back
For all my kind unselfish loving deeds

HUH?

Well, you just wait,
They´ll find you yet,
And when they do, they´ll put you in
the ASPCA, you mangy MUTT,

AND

They´re coming to take me away,
Haha, they´re coming to take me away,
Ho ho, hee hee, ha ha,
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I´ll be happy to see
Those nice young men
In their clean white coats
And they´re coming to take me AWAY,
HA HAAAA

They´re coming to take me away,
Haha, they´re coming to take me away,
Ho ho, hee hee, ha ha,
To the happy home with trees and flowers
And chirping birds and basket weavers
Who sit and smile and
Twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they´re coming to take me away,
HAHAAAAAAAAA

Cynic, you made me smile, no, laugh out loud, for the first time today! (well, maybe more than a day since it's now 2 a.m.!)
I remember that song, it was a favourite of mine, and I still sing bits of it when I "lose it" occasionally. Thanks, I needed that!

I'm going with you Donna to age 8 but make sure you bring the remote control cause I can't stand to get off the couch.

Regards,
Thomas
