Your famous , fun and first adventure?
Did it happen in the car?
Or maybe you just ran too far.
Could it be your skipping school?
Playing like Ferris Bueller?
Marching through an Irish parade
Trying hard to make the grade.
Was it cheating on a test?
Or pulling wedgies as a jest?
Was it fun, or where you scared?
Were you caught and were you spared?
How many times have you been pranked?
From an annoying telephone caller.
Did you listen to his story?
Or did you just begin to holler?
To get someone’s attention?
Were they true or were they false?
And did they bring suspension?
I can tell you just one time
I ran so far away
Running from the sunshine state
To the great land of great PA.
It was all because of love
Or may-be lack there of it
I was out of school so fast
Knowing this was first and last
Of one big great adventure.
My friend and I took just one jaunt
On a Tuesday afternoon
We left school so mighty fast
Setting out to have a blast
All the way we traveled first-class.
We arrived in the dread of winter
It was freezing cold
My dear friend had never been
Outside of her mold.
Back in Florida was warm weather
Nothing like the north
It was hard to trek the walks
Staring wildly at each block
At least we were together.
For more than just a day
We were home in nothing flat
When one aunt we’ll call a rat
Turned and called our mothers.
Mom’s freaked out while dad’s despaired
While we loomed up north
We had fun while we were there
Knowing we would not be spared
Never again to be paired
Our friendship to be pondered.
Three days came and three days passed
This winter of adventure
Trading this experience
Would make me less a person.
Times were fun back in those days
So have some fun while you are young
But don’t forget
And never regret
In case someone writes of it!
Live Life to its Fullest and Follow Your Dreams.
Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories.
~From the movie An Affair to Remember
See you soon!
