i want to be bigz


 my niece, eager to go out.

i called for a cab about 5mins earlier, i was going to take the girls out. but lil' miss G aka my mummy aka my blanky was so impatient, she kept peeping out through the mail slot and asking when the taxi would be here.
and of cos typical her, 2hours into our outing,she was already tired and wanted to go home NOWWWWWW(after having her mcdonalds that is),sulking,sucking and pulling me outside the shops.

it got me thinking how as children we're so impatient with life, we cant wait to be adults,to be grown ups, to break free from boundaries. we keep peeping out through the peephole of our childhood into the assumed glitz and glam of adulthood and hopping around impatiently waiting for those years to come, but when we're finally let out,we realize its a cold cold world, the glitz and glamor are just illusions, oh we have fun for a bit,but we're tired already and we want to get back into our cocoon of warmth and the wall of innocence that surrounded us.

the irony of life.

  1. Hmm.. insightful... Maybe as human beings we are always wanting more of what we don't have... The best job, and then after that we suddenly realize its not all it promised to be, the hottest guy/girl on the block only to realize they're not all they promised on the outside...

    Maybe we are just.......wired to long for the next new thing!
