I Can’t Wait

Hurry and come to me

I am patiently waiting

Quickly find your way

I am looking for you

Faster than a heartbeat

You will be mine

Make your trip pronto

I must be in your arms

Your presence is needed STAT

I can no longer wait

Mumbles … Cartoon

Cartoons are not the same. As a kid growing up your choices for cartoons were pretty limited. We did have a local weekday show for kids that would run some cartoons, but mainly it was waiting in anticipation for Saturday morning to arrive when we could sit in front of the TV all morning and watch cartoons. Now you have a very limited amount of Saturday morning cartoons to watch, but there are a couple of cable channels that offer round the clock kids programing.

My favorite series has to be Looney Tunes. Then it is a tie between Bugs Bunny and Marvin the Martian. Bugs is one smart little rabbit and always seems to know how to manipulate things to his advantage. Marvin is shear determination and yet somehow makes me feel sad for him… “Where is the kaboom? There was suppossed to be an earth shattering kaboom.”

I have seen some of the “new” cartoons and they are not bad. I know when my daughter was little we would watch Rugrats, The Powerpuff Girls and Spongebob pretty regularly. And has always been the case, the best cartoons are those that throw in a little adult content that just flies right over the kid’s heads but makes mommy and daddy laugh.

Yeah, I think kids today lose out on that anticipation of waiting for Saturday morning cartoons. The world is instant now with episodes a few keystrokes away or the push of a few buttons of the remote. I think that anticipation made my generation appreciate Saturdays a little bit more. What was your favorite cartoon?

You come home from work tired

First thing you do is put your feet up

But then you smile at me

With that knowing grin

And I don’t have to ask

I know what is on your mind

I begin to anticipate your touch

To dream of your scent

And look forward to your taste

The night will explode in bliss

All in due time…
