Default I Don't Want to Play Grown Up Today!!

Okay, so I don't know about you guys, but every once in awhile I don't want to be a grown up for the day and I don't want to have to worry about the country, our gun rights, bills, going to work, getting things done, making anyone happy ( except myself ) and I just want the carefree day of being like 10 again....

So, if you could shirk all responsibilities for the day, and do legal only kid stuff, with like $20 in your pocket and your peddle bike - what would you do today?

I would like to get up late, around 10-ish. Watch some cartoons and have some cereal.

Then I'd like to peddle down to the local bowling alley, maybe play a couple of games with a buddy ( student discount ), get a good, greasy, dripping down your arm bowling alley burger, then spend a few hours playing Donkey Kong, Spy Hunter and Hogan's Alley arcade games for $0.25 a game. And get a giant 64 ounce Mondo Gulp of regular coke and enjoy it to the last sip....

Then peddle home and be there in time for dinner.

What about you? What would you do?

JD

Get up at 5 in the morning, get my fishing gear, and go down to a nice stream. I'd fish the whole day away. I'd have some food with me for lunch, and I'd be back home with dinner. That night, I would turn on my Nintendo, and play some video games until about 3 in the morning.



When I was a kid, I was the only one out of my group of friends to get excited about a new fishing rod.

Cool thread. I would probably head out with my mud boots on (just rained) and machete in hand and go exploring till I got to somewhere that I had never been before.... probably some lake or pond I'd happen upon. I'd walk all around it and then just sit and take in the greatest day ever before heading home. My mom would have dinner on the table and dad would be making sure I washed my hands before dinner. Boy, I miss him. Later, since we didn't have video games or VCR's back then, I might be lucky enough to watch a James Bond movie on TV. 4 channels only!

Default 10, I barely remember 10

Grab my fishing rod, amd 510 remington, whistle up old Queen (give my left one to have that dog back) Head for Crooked Creek. Back at dark, and your parents not worried about you. The world has changed.
