You know a lot of us kind of get into a groove. You graduated high school, may have attended college, you found a job, you got married, you had kids, and the next thing you know it will be time to retire and spend time with the grandchildren.
That’s not a life I chose for myself, I always kind of refused to live the “ordinary life.” I’ve always looked for adventures.
What is an ordinary life? Well that’s hard to define, but my guess is those who live one know exactly what I’m talking about and those who don’t also get my drift. Its doing something adventurous that most people wont ever do. Something that might be a little dangerous, not exactly following the rules. Something you will always remember.
Usual symptoms following such an incident are laughing so hard you cant speak your own name, running so fast you feel like your heart will explode from your chest, or finding yourself wide awake staring at the ceiling at 2 am wondering how you escaped with your life, or at least prosecution.
You don’t have to be a nut about it “like some of us AA staffers” (toilet seats around your neck , rides in the police cars) you can plan as many adventures or as few as you like.
But one thing I can promise, refusing to live an ordinary life can be liberating. And memories of adventures don’t wind up in flea markets, or salvage yards. And you can relive them at anytime, you don’t have to fire up the DVD. Just sit back in your cubicle, close your eyes, and enjoy. Some of the more creative adventures will even get you a certain amount of fame around the office.
If you make the choice, let me suggest the perfect place to start. Arrowhead Stadium.
Now is the time to start planning your adventures for the 2009 Chiefs season ! Keep an eye out for my future postings, and I will see what I can do to help. And in the mean time you can review my previous posting “Peanut Poker in the Peanut Gallery” to get you in the mood.
