Everyone should have an hour a day just to regress back to childhood and PLAY. It's hard to be silly at first, but once you get used to it, you wonder why you ever stopped.
I think that's one of the biggest reasons I don't want kids. I'd have to at least pretend to grow up. I like being able to be silly and to have fun. I like making faces at Matt and laughing when he says "fart." I like to pretend to be a ninja while I'm waiting for the elevator, and I love stopping what I'm doing to watch squirrels play.
I still like Hello Kitty.
Why do we ever give that up? Why do we have to deny ourselves so much joy? Can you imagine what the world would be like if the rulers of all the nations took an hour each day to play tag and 4-square? Can't you just picture it? Perhaps Yeltsin and Hussein could hold the ends of the jump ropes while G.W. leaps and they all chant "Cinderella dressed in yella..."
Yes, I know I'm being silly and idealistic, but hey, I'm a kid, right? I'm allowed to dream.
