You know what the trouble with being an adult is?
You don't get recess anymore. You don't get to go outside and play anymore. It's now called getting active- or getting your excersize. Why do we have to justify adult playtime as getting some excersize? Why can't we just say, I need to go out and play?
I wanna play in the sandbox. I wanna play on the slide. I wanna jump out of the swing again. I wanna ride my bike and do it hands free! I wanna climb trees and build forts and play house with a house with walls made of stacked sticks or carefully scooped and lined up pine-needles. I wanna play school again and take turns being teacher. I wanna make mud-pies and have water fights with the hose. I wanna play baseball or football and not have all the rules and regulations- i just wanna wack the ball with the bat and watch it sail across the field. Or throw the football and try to sack whoever hs the good fortune to catch it. I want to play a rousing game of dodgeball or how about Red- Rover?????? I wanna shoot hoops and not keep score. I wanna swing out over the ravine on a grapevine swing and do the Tarzan yell(I actually do a VERY good impression of it). I wanna pitch horseshoes.
Being a kid was so much fun. Being an adult with responsibilities just SUX sometimes.
I vow that this year- as soon as the weather warms a bit- I am going to go biking more often. I am also going to buy a set of horseshoes and an ice cream churn and every Sunday afternoon I am going to extend an open invitation to anyone who wants to come over for a few games of horseshoes and a churn of home-made ice-cream. Every week a different flavor!
The weekends are going to become my RECESS- I am taking back my right to have FUN!!!!!!
