A young mind

When I was really young, I would play library and lawyer in my room. Half the fun was setting everything up and I actually chronicled all my books and made signout cards for each one. The works.

But my FAVORITE game to play was office. I would write pretend notes that were extremely important for the boss, answer the pretend telephone and shuffle papers like I was so busy. (Some would argue I still do that last part.)

It's now extremely obvious to me that I used up much of my work years and enthusiasm during my childhood years.

Heck, the way I figure it, I should actually be able to retire in a few years.

But don't worry, my mind has matured some, I'm not so naive as to think there will actually be social security for me to collect. ;)

    ha! that's so funny...office was one of my favorite games too (right behind teacher/school). All I wanted for Christmas was pens & paper to play with...can you imagine how easy my parents had it when it came to gifts? Just give her a pen & some paper and she'll be thrilled!

    me too! office and teacher, and often times i would play store so that i could use my toy cash register.

    then, when i would get bored with that, i would sneak outside and into the car, set the emergency brake and shift the gearshift a million times making the vroom sound as i would pretend i was driving.

    LOL I did the same thing, including all the organization. Only I played Bank just as much as Office. Never played library. Goodness knows I had enough books to though.

    Have a great weekend!!!! :)

    I TOTALLY used to play Library, too. I thought I was the only one who had check out slips for all of my books! :)

    I loved playing office. My parents eventually got so for Christmas we would get a box full of office supplies, papers, pens and all kinds of other fun stuff. It was great! I still love looking for school and office supplies.
