for those who've forgotten..

When was the last time you

slid down a slight inclined plane with a 'wheeeee!'?
didn't run for cover when it poured and just held your face up letting the raindrops caress your face?
danced when you heard your favourite song no matter the place?
ate watermelon straight to the rind?
balanced on a tilted sewer lid pretending you were skateboarding?
heard the satisfying *crunch* of dried up leaves as you stepped on them?
took in deep whiffs of the delicious aroma that emanates from when rain becomes one with scorched earth?
didn't take calls on your cellphone while having a conversation with a friend or a family member?
intentionally wore outrageously coloured footwear(think orange!) on a very sober outfit?
did an all nighter playing board games?
didn't worry about what disease you might pick up post mosquito bite and just let off steam calling it a lesbian or a horny bugger?
drank freshly squeezed orange juice?
spent a day not worrying/complaining/thinking about money?
let the wind ruffle your hair without getting mad about it?
ran for the heck of it? (a treadmill doesn't count)
didn't do a mental calorie count while scrutinizing a restaurant menu and just ordered and gorged 'coz you could?
sang in the shower without fretting over getting to work on time?
basked in the moonlight?
let the wild demon within loose not caring what people thought of you?

Fun doesn't always have to be paid for. Don't allow societal norms to BE the norm. Relearn how to take pleasure in the small things in life; don't allow your job to take over your life. Let your demon loose!* :D

*sing the exclamatory remark to the tune of 'Let My People Go' xD
