Just Kiddin!

So here’s the thing… kids would make great contestants for Fear Factor! There is just no arguing that. I mean come on…they look at something disgusting …and boom…it’s in their mouth.



“Oh you have a sticky green bug for me to eat…? YUMMY”, they’d say!
No questions asked…now that’s a straight win of 10,000 bucks on Fear Factor if you ask me!
And then you’d think that since they were cool enough to do that kinda stuff…they’d play really cool games. But ..na-ah! Somehow they love to play the weirdest and most brain numbing games. Ever heard of the game ‘Pretend’?!Well if you haven’t, just pretend…its part of the game anyway for god sakes! Now what is pretend anyway?! And why would you want to pretend. Now for me, pretend is no different from ‘loony’…u know ….cuckoo….crazy…”oh lets pretend we have an elephant…let’s ride the elephant” where…where the hell is the elephant…I ask you….? N how would I ride it!??
Let’s pretend we’re sleepy kiddo…and let’s take a nap! That’s what I would say to the kid! But no getting to naps…that’s one thing I’m really jealous of when it comes to kids. It’s just so amazing the way they can just fall asleep and be lost to the world so easily!! You see I’m a light sleeper and for me…someone just being in the same room can wake me up. In fact…ME being in the same room wakes me up! Well you get my point…I don’t sleep too well. So when I see something like this…

Do you know what I feel? It’s called one word…jealous!



I mean just look at that. An entire city could be burning to bits but na-ah…I’m sleeping. I’m gone…as dead as a bone….

bone…did somebody say bone…guess who’s up?! And the sun is shining!!

Isn’t it great how animals and kids are so innocent…so real…so excited…so easily! Look at a baby …first learning to walk…it’s eyes are just wide open…looking down at its feet…and then up at your face…saying….”oh my god I’m walking…look at meeee I’m walking”…and us adults….the car’s away at servicing and we’re like “oh *&@%#damn…I have to walk!!”

A well written post.,. The one about 'pretend' game was cool.,.:) And in reality too, the innocence of the childrens and their care-free nature is something which we began to lose as we grew up...

The ending part of the post was well thought one. Says how often we take things for granted !!

Hey would like to have your feedback about my blog...

Cheers.
