MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

If I Were... an Adult Blue

I'm afraid I'll never really grow up. I refuse to do so. Oh I can act all adultish and fool everyone, nuns included, but in the end that's what it is: an act. And when I'm on stage talking like an adult, strutting like an adult, even smelling like an adult (yes, I can), I'm just another Clark Kent donning a disguise waiting for the Oscars to start pouring in. The way I see it, my friends, adults have caused more harm on this ball than children will ever be capable of, and we can all take that to the bank. I, for one, won't be assimilated

And that's all I have to say
On this not-so-sunny Monday.

Except...

IF I WERE... AN ADULT BLUE

If I were an adult Blue, would Batman be a joke?
Would my dreams go up in smoke yet my ass be rich not broke?
Would I care to build a pirate ship, then take you along for free?
As I say "Well, Scooby Dooweeeeee"?
Would yours be the place to be
Or a cat say, "Whoopty doowee!"
And rhyme about a snip-snip sea?
Would Gary seem hairy not flairy?
Would his talking dog sound um... scary?
Would we even get along
 Like butt cheeks and a dirty thong?

 If I were an adult Blue, would Star Wars be for kids?
Would my bluishness be on the skids
As I talk about takeover bids?
Would I rather ponder politics
And show you my new bag of tricks,
Using words like hence and thus?
Should a ninja just go take a bus?
Would I take a real beer for the shower,
Be lauded, paid heaps by the hour?
Would I be a public defender
Go to Bora and not see its splendor?

If I were an adult Blue,
Would The Order be funny too?
Would a Pickleope seem like a farce?
Would I dream about living on Mars
As I fathom the beauty of magic?
Would this world seem a little less tragic?
Being wise and in sync with the game,
Would I stop believing in shame?
Would I stop believing in you?
Would I laugh at my blue suede shoe?

What say you?

Don't get assimilated...

  1. Bah to the adult at my sea
    can stick it down where they pee
    Snip snip and whoopdi friggin doo
    Will stay getting a go at my zoo
    Adults who try and be adult are dumb anyway
    9.9/10 anyway at their bay
    can you get a 0.1 adult?
    Maybe that is some kind of cult
    Adults sure stink
    Smoking and always reaching for a drink
    Gambling a lot too
    There at their zoo
    Things only so called adults can do
    And ruin the planet from zoo to zoo
    Never taking any credit for that though
    Nope, the aliens did it by stepping on a toe
    So no adult for me
    I'll fake it to make it if need be

    A real beer in the shower? Why not? I'm sure Brandon and Bryan would say that was cool.
    Being adult doesn't mean everyone knows what they're doing or what is best.

  6. I hear that adulting is hard but I think worrying about being an adult or too childish are both hard. Stop worrying and live. Of course everybody worries about something but you need to not let worry take over your life. That's just a black hole of negativity right there.

  7. Adulthood is overrated. Oh sure, we can choose our own bedtimes and drive, but other than that, it's not for me. I'm okay with myself, remaining a kid forever. Sure, we all get older, but the best of us never grow up. :)

  8. I don't know why anyone wants to be an adult. Growing up is such a ridiculous and realistic thing to do. I love my fantasy microcosm.

  9. Blue - You need to keep your inner child alive or else you'll just fizzle out. You lose your zest for life Our inner child brings vitality into our lives. Our first and best teacher of conscious living is our inner child. I for one like to keep that inner child entertained as that is when the dream world opens and my imagination takes flight.

    I mean we all have to be adults at times but, there is a time for play as well..and if you want the inner child to reside inside, you must nurture it. The adult will always be protective when needed in our lives.

    To be an entertainer is a gift...it makes work feel more like play.

    Adults don't know everything...kids can be so much smarter as they see things in a different light. Heck, I believe in dreams and fairy tales..I cannot tell you how many times people have told me to grow up...to them I say nay..I prefer my little world of magic.

    Who will save the planet for future generations not some of these so called adults. Blue don't get me going...or I'll get all blue myself...

    You know once you grow up - you can no longer fly...as you forget the way...

    so let's keep our wings and soar Blue...

  15. Being an adult
    Doing adult things
    Some do get results
    But some just blink
    Is it good then
    Trying to look matured
    Perhaps for a time
    Before the cover is ruptured

  19. Therefore you'll always be little boy blue
    Wearing a Blue Suede Shoe, times two.
    And it's a shame we all must grow up
    It's more fun not being an adult, but just a pup.
    This world alas at times corrupts us
    And makes us do things we'd rather not discuss.
    As children war would not exist
    Because such extremes we would resist.
    Our world would be full of magic
    And not a trace of any tragic.
    We'd sing and play and laugh all day
    And never hurt another, come what may.
    We'd love to learn and please and make things
    And get into the kitchen and mix and bake things.
    We'd have a little garden plot
    And grow things in a nice big pot.
    And when we'd get a little bigger
    We'd help a bit more as a digger
    Even Jesus said he'd like to see
    Everyone as children in eternity.

      Those grownup games makes me bad
      Corrupting the brain and what not
      Let's put a lid on the whole lot
      Children learn those tricks from their folks
      War seems like less fun than jokes
      Magic there is if you're not blind
      When you're head's not stuck in your behind
      Let's sing and play and laugh all day
      How's that for a plan, Eddie, do say
      Let's teach those kids that life should be fun
      Baking things like a giant bun
      A garden plot, hey, wouldn't that be great
      Beats things like greed and hate

      Who We Are -

      Two Blue Souls lost living on a spinning blue globe
      dancing to the synchronized flashing lights of a strobe
      singing together, two beats, two drums, two hearts
      harmony a unique art, resonating in two parts.
      come let us share a cup, drink from the vine of life
      the sweet taste intoxicating we float free from strife
      forgetting earthly woes, let us slip into a dreamscape
      wandering in a field of wildflowers, let us escape
      under a golden moon, our inner child does soar
      seeking hidden treasures on a far away shore
      close your eyes, can you imagine that
      let us feel the moment, no need to chat

  24. In my family, growing up was know as, "committed to adultry." My how times and terms change.

    By the way, you haven't seen me much because my body went wacko. The doctor put me on 50,000 units of vitamin D (I take it twice a week for 12 weeks). I already feel better. Maybe I'll travel to more blogs and get back to adulting.

    3. 50,000 units of vitamin D... That rings a bell, and it's loud too. My Bollywood Princess got the same prescription, what, less than a year ago. Good to hear you're feeling better now for I did miss your bubbly presence, Dixie Dear. I'm sure Dezzmeister feels the exact same way though he's probably too preoccupied with calling you a lady to even realize this shocking fact.
