Tell the truth Thursday
The question from The Redhead Riter
"What do you miss most about being young?"
I miss alot of things about being young, but I think the thing i often find myself looking back on is time: when I was young a moment seemed like forever, a half hour was longer than what it is today. I could play forever before I had to come home- even though my mom said "an hour max". That hour was good for making dolls marry each other, camping out in a friends back yard pretending the bears were out to get us, dress up, eating lunch (even though I hated mayo), a huge glass of coolaid, running to the park to play on the marry go round, then to another friends house to pet puppies.
Now days it takes an hour to drive across town, pick up a movie, then drive back.
an hour to vacuum the floor, through in a load of laundry, and make lunch.
At max I manage to accomplish three things, most times one or two though...yeah I miss the kid time I used to have, where everything seemed to last forever, time stretched out for miles...
