Back to reality…

I want to sleep for a week, and when I wake up I want the sun to be shining and the birds singing as if I am in a Disney movie.

I’d like my to-do list to be on a mini post-it note and I would like it to have only three things on it: 1) read; 2) relax; 3) repeat.

I want to be able to eat as much of whatever suits me without gaining weight.

I want all my beverages to have colorful umbrellas in them.

I want to have my cable television offerings to only be of my favorite shows.

I want to have a 500 square foot closet that is coordinated by color.

I want my toes to always have a perfect pedicure.

I want my yard to look like a beautiful park with mature trees and well-kept gardens.

I want all my family and friends to live happy, carefree lives like me.

I want a wand – a powerful one – to make all the above happen.

I want you to stop staring at your computer screen and asking, “What are you smoking today woman??!!” ;-)

I want days that I can solely dedicate to daydreaming the way I did when I was a kid.

I want the frivolity of believing that everything I’d like to change in the world could change tomorrow just by virtue of me wanting it.

I want the simplicity of the youth that I thought was so very difficult.

I want a single day back of that idyllic innocence wherein the world had no real limits and reality was self-defined.

Alas, dreamers grow up and move into reality – life is a trip like that.  And no, I am not smoking anything – but hey, pass the Doritos and the Oreos nevertheless – that is one immediate want that I can fulfill that will make me feel better about living with reality. ;-)

Day one thousand two hundred and eighty-four of the new forty – obla di obla da

About Ms. C

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
