Confession Wednesday #3
I’m a kid at heart
I love toys, cheesy jokes and cartoons. A trip to Toys ‘R Us is just as fun for me now as it was when I was 10…the only difference is now I can buy whatever I want and mommy and daddy can’t say no!! Muhahaha!! Bring on the toys! When I studied engineering I wanted to eventually design toys. I might not have followed my dream then, but I still love toys. I have an eight year old nephew that I love shopping for because I just buy what I want and give it to him…it’s really just a ploy to buy what I want and play with it when he is around – I just don’t tell anyone that.
When I was in Atlanta  all of these kids were running around this fountain in Olympic park. I just had to join them! The object of course was not to have mom and dad yell at you for getting all wet. So if you timed it just right you could jump in the middle of the rings and not get wet! The other game was to run on the rings as the water sprayed up in sequential order. It was like Hollywood with bullets spraying sand right behind your feet! Too much fun!! The little guy in red (on right) didn’t make it. :)
Ah the Coke factory! One of my all time favorite pictures…I spent fifty cents for a small old school glass bottle of Coke and had a photo op with a Coke Polar Bear. Just chillin’ with my bud and sharing a coke.
Life is short so I say enjoy it while you can. Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses…but most of all don’t forget those carefree days when you were young and being an adult sounded so “cool”. Now you are an adult, but you can still enjoy being young at heart.
