Today he resigned, he filled out his notice, Today’s the day he departs, Today’s the day he stops life like an adult, And begins again, right from the start, So he threw out his brief case, suede shoes and black suit, Hung his restraint on the door, And put on some shorts, torn singlet and boots, And went on some crazy explore, To burn some ants with a magnifying glass, Then kick around the mud and the dirt, He also went to spray paint some walls, Getting paint all over his shirt. Today’s the day he quit being adult, His new life has now just begun, Authority and burden of old adult life, Replaced with fooling around, happy and fun.

Excellent, The most telling sign of old age is not carring any more.

oh my, it reminds me of the Oscar winning movie AMerican Beauty. Did you ever see it? It was one of my favorite movies ever!! Good one, Lewis.
