Have you ever had a dream about something from your childhood, and you wake up with all the memories and emotions of those events? I think I was around 7 or so when I woke up the other morning. 7 and gunning for bear. I really hate when that happens! It makes me feel like all the effort I’ve put into being a grown-up just flies out the window, because there is really something almost enviable about being able to have a 7 year old tantrum, and I sort of wish I could stay there. There is the part of me that wants to go back with those 7 year old emotions but with my grown-up body and my grown-up strength and spank the living snot out of some people. With the belt, heh.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t take long after waking for the grown-up reality to kick in. I’m not 7, and I can’t throw fits like one, and revenge isn’t mine to take. It was enough that I left certain people behind when I walked away. But boy oh boy, I confess, sometimes those vengeful thoughts do make me smile!
Yeah, it’s a wicked smile.
