ALL WORK AND NO PLAY

I once heard someone describe romance as adult play. I like that concept. I personally believe true romance involves much more play than passion. While passion is important, we often feel “too mature” to have fun. Nonsense!

Those who know me consider me to be one of the biggest kids around. I don’t know of any rules that say I can no longer participate in water balloon fights or shoot people with silly string. I still get excited when I hear the music of the ice cream truck as it comes into our neighborhood.

Playing is a big part of my wife’s and my relationship. Sure, there is always work to be done around the house or in the yard, but living life and enjoying it is so much more important, healthy - and fun. I could spend every waking hour doing paperwork, removing weeds or cleaning up around the house but I much prefer taking my wife out to eat an ice cream cone or looking for four leaf clovers in a big clover patch. When was the last time you did that?

Do you ever walk in the woods or meadows together and pick bouquets of wild flowers? How about playing hide and seek or kick the can with your children or the neighborhood kids? When did you last skip rocks on water or race leaves down a stream?

I love to bake cookies with my wife and eat them piping hot out of the oven and drink a big, cold glass of milk. Yumm!

Perhaps the media calls me the World’s Most Romantic Man because I am the world’s biggest kid. I think there might be a connection. Is the kid inside you lost? If so, you better go find him. I’ve gotta go now. I hear the ice cream truck.
