When did I sign up for this ?? I mean when did being an adult become something you signed up for ? Why wasn’t I told ?? Why wasn’t I told how hard it could be , And that there is no escape ? How sneaky of the other adults to keep this secret so well and for so many years , not even 1 word of this conspiracy got out , if it had I bet you most people would have said no thanks , not interested , pass , too many strings attached , don’t wanna … Would you have signed up to something that turned out to be ( once it was too late to stop it ) so damm hard ? Not me that’s for sure there must be easier ways to do things and I for 1 would be quite happy to go find them anything would be better than having to be an adult , that’s too much work .
I mean no one ever said being an adult would mean you have to be responsible , you would have to learn to get along with others for a start ( bugger ) also to learn to live with them ( without wanting to kill them ) and generally be a nice person . Now that in its’elf if at times dam near impossible as some people are just too much like hard work and others are just plain not on this planet at all , but as being adult means you have to get along with them then there goes all the fun for a start it’s just not fair ( can’t even get a refund dammit ) So once you get saddled with being an adult it seems you are stuck with it ready or not , and let me tell you most people are not ready for it , and it seems to sneak up on you when you are not looking. Sheeesh go to bed 1 night , wake up next day and ” presto ” you are now an adult with all that comes with it whether you like it or not ( I don’t ) but there is sod all you can do about it as you are stuck with it ( mutter * grumble * )all you can do is make the best of it , lol, or worst your choice.
How many times in a day even do you want to just say Stop!! I do not wanna adult today !! Leave me alone and go find someone else to annoy ? My guess is there are a lot of days like that , specially if you have to go * ugh * shopping and have to deal with other so called adults . Another time you may not want to adult is if you have school age children and have to deal with all that comes with that particular job , and there is a lot that comes with that , trust me been there done that , lol, it’s too hard . School age children are a world of problems all by themselves and can be quite a problem to sort out as most people know , I am not saying it is not fun because it is and can be lots of fun , but there is always too a lot of times when being the adult is something you just do not want to do , but there is no option to pass or get someone else to take over you just have to do it and smile .
See when you have to adult you can no longer do all the fun things you used to do , like building a fort , playing in the rain, running along the beach , swim naked , follow people around for fun ( they call it stalking now ) you cannot play hide and seek with people either ( that’s being a peeping Tom ) You can no longer do all the fun things you used to do and no one will let you go to places you really want to go to , like the zoo , or the circus as these places now cost too much to go to or no one has the time anymore . Playing with dolls and cars is also out as they say you need to grow up , if you go crook about it they think you need to be put into a little rubber room all by yourself , fine as long as mine has lots of bubble wrap in it then bring it on ..
So here we are being forced to be something we are not ready for an adult , with no way out , no refunds, no way to pass so we have to do it ready or not and try to do it well , we do it seems manage to do ok at it as we still seem to be here and doing all the things we were not warned about and , ( so far so good ) not done too bad a job at it . As I see it we should have been warned , there should have been warning labels attached to it as there is with most other things these days . Then again if we had been warned ? How many of us would have taken the warning seriously ? Would we have listened ? I doubt it very much as we would be too busy hoping to be an adult asap not realising just what the full implications of being adult were and some were in such a hurry to be adult that they would have told you to nick off they don’t believe you it can’t be that hard after all ” how hard can it be ? ”
Well anyway warning or no warning, ready or not it sneaks up on you and you have to do it , you have no choice , all we can do is make the most of it , and take a time out when we need to so we don’t quite lose control , lol , very good luck with that too . Being adult is the hardest job you will get apart from being a parent which is even harder , being a wife is also a very hard job ( at times ) lol , so it seems there is not a lot of good in this job of being adult but being adult is what we have to do like it or not , so hop to it you so called adults and try not to mess up too much ok ??
Growing old is mandatory …growing up is optional ….and I don’t wanna ..so am off to play with my bubble wrap …be back in a year or 3 ….
