Perhaps You Should Have Some Fun?

When was the last time you played, acting silly and having fun? Can you even remember? It’s easy to get in a rut, especially as you get older and are trying to act “mature and responsible.”  Horse poop. Was it the last time you got wasted and ran around the city park, naked with friends? Sorry that turned out bad, when the police showed up, but you shouldn’t let a minor setback or even sixty days in jail deter you.

Everyone is wound way to tight anymore, our modern society just killing us with obligations and crap that’s no fun. Work certainly isn’t any fun, when you spend every second expecting to get fired! Family life isn’t much better, all the stuff that needs attention and effort. There’s not a lot of time for plain old fun, is there?

Now if you run out, and start laughing and rolling on the ground by yourself, people will assume you’re over the edge, and call SWAT. Not good. If you’ve got kids, you can do way more, silliness wise, without attracting the nut squad. Ditto a dog or two. I recommend you borrow one if you don’t have one, as that works as well as having your own. Dogs don’t give a crap, they’ll play with anyone!

Borrowing kids is a lot more dicey, and I’d say no to that. One wrong comment, and you’re in jail for “stealing” someone’s kids. Still, you need to do something. If you’re a boomer, you can get a buch of your fellows together, and hit the park, where you can toss a frisby and dance around. People who see you will just think you’re having flashbacks from Woodstock, especially if any of you get naked.
