What I wanna do…

I wanna be ten and be blissfully unaware of the time.
I wanna spend a good 10 minutes perfecting my pirouette, or what I firmly believe is a pirouette, in front of the bathroom mirror.
I wanna “sock skate” throughout the dining room, posing for the cameras as I go.
I wanna exist on a handful of raisins and crust less PB & J’s.
I wanna believe in an endless world.
I wanna be able to WOO-HOO anytime, anywhere and anyplace and it would be considered normal.
I wanna have the hardest thing in my life be memorizing the 9 times tables.
I wanna be able to put my pants on backwards and walk around the neighborhood with my friend like that.
I wanna have giggle fits over “nothing, just nothing”
I wanna get excited about birthdays, again.
I wanna go on a field trip.
I wanna pass a note to my friend in English class.
Circle yes if you think so and so is cute….
I wanna be crushed on him, but except he doesn’t know it, yet.
I wanna play hooky.
I wanna be asked to dance, quite unexpectedly, again.
I wanna phone call, from my friend, to be a big event.
But right now…..
I don’t wanna unload the dishwasher.
I don’t wanna do the laundry.
I don’t wanna scrub the bathroom
I don’t wanna be a boring ol’ grown-up…
anymore
Peace – Rene

  7. I so wanna read that again–it warms my heart. Adorable, sweet sentiment and indicates you had a good childhood you can look back on with happy memories. :)You know you still can do ballet pirouetes whenever you like but jsut don't throw out your back like I did…and NO, i was not doing those! LOL!I remember being like Peter Pan as a kid and not wanting to grow up when I looked at the world around me and all its stresses. I still feel much the same way except I have def. grown up!Anyway, great write up this day. Love it. You are so witty, clever and spontaneous in your writing. Charming.Oh, and hey…it's Hugh Grant's sister!!!
