I wasn’t sure at first if I could come up with something for today’s prompt, but then as I thought about it for a couple of moments, one of my all-time favorite songs came to mind – Young At Heart from Frank Sinatra – and that gave me an idea, for I do feel that I am young at heart. I enjoy playing games, including video games when I have the time (yes, I consider myself somewhat of a gamer chick). I still like to watch cartoons (though not so much the newer cartoons) and Disney movies. I like to read YA novels. And yes, I occasionally still buy “collectible” figures and plush toys. I don’t feel like I’m almost 40 years old. I still feel like I’m maybe in my 20s, which could be why my tastes and interests are still in that age range. I only realize how old I’m getting when the calendar turns and my birthday comes around. But I’m sort of like Peter Pan, I guess. I don’t want to grow up. I prefer staying young at heart, having fun, and dreaming dreams and hoping for fairy tales to come true. You may think me a bit of a naive, hopeless romantic and optimist, but that’s just how I am.
