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. 


Perhaps next week I'll rake a pile for the J-man and live vicariously through him.
