…kids ALWAYS know better than us growed-ups how to enjoy themselves…

…this ol’ Scots Jurassic scribbler is still trying to figure out what I’ll be when I eventually grow up… a status, let me say, I’ll gladly forgo for quite a while yet… it was an astounding privilege to be among a host of children this morning, showing us all how to have a great time… here in the Middle East, the bank I’m currently on assignment with decided to have a ‘family day’... and what a blast it was…

…gangs of terrific children brought their mums and dads to work… it was supposed to be the other way around, but the instant more than three kids congregate en masse, they take over whatever part of the WURLD they currently populate… the youngsters visited the respective offices of their parents to see these nebulously anonymous places where mommy and daddy disappear to every weekday, supposedly to ‘WURK’ …when that was done,  everyone gathered onto one floor, specially cleared and restocked for the event… computer terminals made way for ice-cream dispensing counters, Nutella jars, candy floss machines, biscuits, and sweets… work stations yielded space to tables for more productive activity than stupid adulting commerce… more sensible stuff like drawing, pot painting, and Lego… face-painting and a real, dressed-up, balloon-making, jester-clown were successful attractions…

…there are few, if any, things more conducive to happiness that observing sixty (yes, sixty!) children focused on having fun… kids ALWAYS know better than us growed-ups how to enjoy a day… Master Gallacher was permitted to join in the fun, and I need as much persuasion to do that as  a polar bear needs ice floes… I was treated to a variety of incredible works of art on the drawing table, accompanied by explanations on what the productions actually were!..

…I thought my writing creativity  was pretty edgy, but it’s a distant second to what comes out of the minds of these wunnerful kids… being amongst them today replugged my psyche into what’s truly important – families and children having fun!… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  1. What a lovely thing for the organisation to do:)). I’m guessing that the children will always remember those days. And after all, they are the reasons why their parents are probably at work, anyway…
