When we were kids we played tons of games. we had neighborhood baseball teams (no coach just kids), played soccer, bike races, you name it. When something was too close to call, we simply called for a "do-over." Or sometimes someone wasn't quite ready and called a do over. You couldn't abuse it or you were ignored. But most of us chose wisely and saved it for a really important moment.
I'd like to call a do-over.
Now lest you think I'm a whiner I'd like to say this is the first "do over" call in 18 years. For the record I have embraced every milestone, every accomplishment, every new school, new teacher, new friend.
But I'm just not ready to let go.
So I'd like a do over. Not the whole 18 years. Just the last one. That senior year was awesome.
So God, I'm calling a Do-over. Please?
