TODAY’S IDLE THOUGHTS
I was thinking about Fall today. It’s always been one of my favorite seasons. I think, though, people look at it differently depending on their age. Something like this –
Ages 5-12 The Simple Years
Boo (or yay), itâ€™s time to go back to school.
Yay, we get to dress up for Halloween and Christmas is coming!
Ages 13-22 The Intrigue Years
Ooh, parties, homecoming and football games!
Ages 23-45 The Holidays-Are-A-Lot-of-Work Years
Yay, itâ€™s time for the kids to go back to school!
Sew costumes for Halloween, buy candy.
Prepare giant Thanksgiving dinner.
Buy presents and decorate for Christmas.
Ages 46- 56+ The I-Can-Almost-Do-Whatever-I-Want Years
Oh thank God itâ€™s not so hot anymore, I was hot already.
Letâ€™s go on vacation now that kids are back in school!
Buy candy that we like in case few Trick-or-Treaters show up
Try to connive one of the kids to making all or part of the holiday dinners.
