Hello and Greetings my Bearded Soldiers, it’s me your Bearded Captain, the flag bearer of all Beards on digital and digital broadcasting media. I am that Beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that Beard who tries to make people smile.
Brothers, I pray you’re well, looking after yourselves and your Beards! My Beloved’s I want to take you down a trip down memory lane of sorts. My Bearded Hero’s I will explain. I am sure I am not the only one, but when you were little weren’t there things that seemed so cool, but just don’t now when you’re an adult?
Let me explain, when I was little I used to be so thrilled when I got a letter, now when I get a letter the feeling of mini dread takes over, why? Coz it’s usually a bill or in my case a parking fine! *wipes the tears from his cheeks*.
Another thing, when I was little was I used to think I was all grown up when I used to push the trolley in the supermarket, these days? Na, someone else can do it, it’s too much effort! Also, do you remember when you were a kid and you used to go weak at the knees whenever you were 1 square mile of a McDonalds and were like mum can we go, can we go?
That was purely on the legendary smell that came out of there. These days your nose doesn’t have the same sentiments to Maccies if once did.
That doesn’t happen either, sense has prevailed. Now, Maccies fans don’t go up in arms, just the realisation of when you’re older, one you have to pay for it and two a Fish O Fillet, doesn’t even touch the surface of filling your stomach up!
Talking of smell, petrol once a smell you could and I quote ‘marry’ just doesn’t have that same feeling to it. Maybe I was married to it, if you catch my drift 😉 .
This next example is a positive example and opposite of this whole blog post, but who remembers when they were kids and were told to go shops to by for their mum some groceries. The shop would be down the road, but you as a young kid in your mind used to see it as one all might walk.
When you would depart, you would be there as if you’re leaving to go for military service and when you return, you act all rejoicing when you complete your mission. These days, that walking voyage, can be done, well not quite in two ticks, but near enough that.
When you were little, you used to hate sleep, remember that? Now well, when you sleep these days it’s like please give me more, give more!
Sorry brothers, I know we were talking about some examples of adulthood coming in the way of things you used to enjoy when you were a kid, but adulthood has the odd good thing about it. Maybe those films, that were too scary or the Frankie Vaughan films (if that’s your thing) you weren’t allowed to watch as kid, but you can now as an adult.
But to conclude, brothers as an adult, you have to cook, clean and wash yourself. When you were a kid, this was all done for you. Where’s that time machine when you need it! The only thing, I was different about my childhood?
That my Beard could have been there with me through the journey. Having said that, I would have lost my ‘cute looks’ 😎 haha!
It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
