Welcome to the domain of The Happy Carrot!
I am 21
I'm from the Great White North
I enjoy flirting with disaster
I live for the rush of adrenaline
I'm generally a multi-tasker
I'm sarcastic to a tee
I believe everything happens for a reason
Before the Internet or the AIM.
Before semi automatics and weed.
playstation3 or Wii.
Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...
I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk.
Red light, Green light.
Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came
Mother May I?
Running through the sprinkler.
Having the privilege to sit in the front seat of the car...
Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons.
Like Hey Arnold and Doug.
Or what about legends of the hidden temple, global guts, double dare,
and who, ARE YOU AFFRAID OF THE DARK!
Who could forget Snick.
Or the teenage mutant ninja turtles,and Power Rangers.
Your first day of school.
Bedtime Prayers and Goodnight Kisses.
Getting an ice cream off the ice cream truck.
A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers.
Jumpin' down the steps.
Jumpin' on the bed.
Runnin' till you were out of breath.
Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt and you almost peed
Being tired from playin' all day.
Your first crush.
Rainy days at school meant playing "Heads up 7-Up" in the
I'm not finished yet...
Kool-Aid was the drink of the summer.
Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes.
Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.
Class Field Trips.
When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got
When getting high was swinging on the swingset.
When 5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a
When your parents took you to McDonalds and you were so
When Toys r Us overuled the "mall"...
I want to go back to the time when...
Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe".
Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!".
"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.
Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly".
Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening.
It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
Being old, referred to anyone over 20.
The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.
Nobody was prettier than Mom.
Nobody was cooler than Dad.
Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.
It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big
people" rides at the amusement park.
Getting an inch of snow was a dream come true.
Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare".
Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles...
