The Inner Child

Once upon a time, there was a couple who had been SO busy with SO many things for SO long, that they were positively desperate for a little time to be alone with each other. This went on for far too long, until one morning their inner children leapt out from deep inside, and dragged them off to a pretty park.




At the park, the inner children ran to the playground... only to learn that unfortunately their outer bodies were too old to play on the merry-go-round.
Or the monkey bars.
Or the swings.

So, they decided to sit down and paint pretty pictures together instead.
















When their masterpieces were complete, they thought it might be fun to blow millions of bubbles. They did this until they were quite out of breath... and nearly out of bubble solution.

Then, they thought it might be fun to decorate the concrete tabletops with some sidewalk chalk.

They liked this SO much, that they decorated more than one tabletop... one with happy pictures, and one with fun advice for any other inner children that might visit the park.















Feeling rather peckish after their harmless adventures in vandalism, they opened their picnic basket to munch on Fluffer Nutter sandwiches, chilled juice boxes, and gummy bears.

 It was a very, VERY sweet lunch.

Unfortunately, after all that sugar, the outer bodies reminded the inner children that they were no longer children after all, and they decided to crawl back inside.


For another day.



The End!
