I just realized that I have crossed the threshold into adulthood. What gave it away, you ask? It wasn't the house, the student loans, the minivan, the "real job" I go to every day, the board positions I hold. No, it wasn't even the four kids, the PTA meetings, the soccer-mom status.
Nope, it was none of that. It was the giant pile of leaves I just raked to the side of the street. That may seem rather mundane to you. But as I briefly contemplated jumping into it, I realized I would just have to rake it back up if I jumped into it and scattered it about.
What a terribly boring, adult thing to think.
Bah.Perhaps next week I'll rake a pile for the J-man and live vicariously through him.
