THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE Back

You have your car keys, 

coffee, cell phone. 

Car starts right up. 

Only 36 more payments. 

You leave the small house 

with the tiny yard 

which takes 30 years to pay off.

You have a full tank of gas 

at four dollars a gallon. 

Traffic jams. 

An hour of driving 

crawling through traffic 

to reach your cubicle … 

and you wonder

why you didn’t know

that bush-league ball

and small farm towns

would be the best days 

of your life. 

And “grow up” was

the worst advice ever.
