Pay what you can all weekend. Take the whimsy home for as little as $8!
Apparently, adulthood sucks.
“The bloom is off the rose,” “you’ve had your fun” and all that’s left is a “slow crawl to the grave.” All aboard, next stop Hagstown. “But, I’m only 27 (or 37, 47, 57, 67…),” you whimper in distress. But the biological clock ticks on, ever louder, and suddenly your face and mood resemble Jessica Tandy in “Driving Miss Daisy.”
SNAP OUT OF IT, MISSY! I guarantee you, from recent college grads to grandmothers, you are much more Xena: Warrior Princess than Miss Havisham – you just have to let her loose.
You may be suffering from a severe case of Wendy-itis.
Why Wendy? J.M. Barrie’s famous heroine, the paramour of Peter Pan, is painted as the very pink of youthful zeal and girlish charm until the last chapter of the book and then WHAM – she booked a one way ticket on the Crone Express. She realizes she must leave Neverland to grow up (good girl, Wendy), forgets how to fly (bad bad BAD girl, Wendy) and ships her children and grandchildren off to have fun in her place (oh, come on! Seriously?).
Wendy’s story, as beautiful as it began, has one very simple moral: when you grow up, your life (and all its joys)… just… stops.
Is her story your story, too?
You may suffering from Wendy-itis if:
- You’re more likely to schedule a colonoscopy than a girls’ night out.
- You’ve been told you’re not being paid to have a good time.
- You’ve bought into the “illegal, immoral, or fattening” myth.
- You’ve ever covered gray roots with mascara in a panic.
- You fear your next birthday ending in 0 more than the zombie apocalypse.
- You’ve found yourself casting jealous looks at children at play and death glares at the adults that dare join in.
- You’ve cried your way through your favorite childhood movie, but for an entirely different reason than when you were 6.
- You’re living your dream life – and aren’t having any fun.
- You’ve taken your multi-vitamin with a dirty martini on more than one occasion.
- You’ve publicly scoffed at self-help books (but secretly wonder what they say).
Newsflash: This syndrome is entirely 100% curable. No Botox required. All you need is a little whimsy.
You have not forgotten how to fly, you just need a reminder (or 12.)
