Daily prompt: Oh for the insight of innocence!

Daily Prompt
Adult Visions
As a kid, you must have imagined what it was like to be an adult. Now that you’re a grownup (or becoming one), how far off was your idea of adult life?

Adulthood, in my shining childhood vision, was a time when I could eat as many chocolate éclairs as I liked – and you’ve got to admit, ambitions don’t come much nobler than that.

What’s more, life would have been much simpler if I’d stuck to it.

  1. What about hot fudge sundaes? I remember those.

    My mother made the best chocolate eclairs, delicious memories. Thanks Helen!

    I think you have certainly figured this out — and I agree, if we had stuck to our childhood visions, we’d all most likely be a lot happier —- perhaps overweight, but much more content. 🙂

    I like that dream. I think my similar dream was Napoleons. On Tahiti. Or Fiji we can finally grow up. 🙂

    • Do we have to? I rather fancy regressing to rip-roaring irresponsibility.

      • Martha Kennedy says:

        I was thinking the same. 🙂 Today I’m wearing my Darwin shirt. I wore it to the store in the local town once and a little boy (little kids think I’m awesome) was jabbering baby talk at me happily and I was answering. His mother — a fundamentalist Christian — slapped his hand and said, “Don’t talk to her, she’s a bad person.” On Fiji I’m wearing my Darwin shirt.

      • We could also snigger at narrow-minded bigots. Now THAT would be fun!
