I remember loving him effortlessly. The moment I saw him he was what I wanted all the time. Few years later I thought it’s just a phase and my love for him will either fade or go away with time. But no, even today when I look 30 years back I find myself at the same junction of love. He is undoubtedly adorable!!!
Today is his 83rd B’day. Mickey has been a special character out of the entire bunch. He is super cute and you feel like gobbling him up! I remember having only those things which had a picture of Mickey Mouse [usually with Mini and Goofy] like pencil box, Tiffin box,the name labels for the notebooks and text books of school, water bottles…oh and what not 🙂
I agree that in childhood Mickey was like everywhere in my life and as time passed though my love for him never faded but flashing Mickey on everything certainly went away ! Today when I’m 31 I don’t imagine myself flashing a Mickey toothbrush or a Mickey bowl and spoon and plate 🙂 Now all this is for my daughter to adore and take ahead.
Coming to think of it, why do we have to give up on certain things in life just because we are an adult? Being ‘adult’ means to do what we think is right, the freedom to take our own decisions and be accountable for them so then why do we not decide to keep that child in us alive? Why do we ask that child to go hide somewhere deep inside? Imagine if today I go out wearing a Mickey t-shirt and use Mickey stickers on my refrigerator, cupboard and have Mickey utensils in the house for use..What would be the scene? Will people think that I’ve gone mad? Will they make fun of me? Will it be considered as rubbish? And hey do I really have to think about what will the people say? Never ending questions….
Anyway, other than Mickey I simply adore Tweety & Jerry!! They are my super favourites too. This reminds me, I haven’t seen not a single cartoon episode since long, haw! What better way to wish Mickey on his b’day than viewing some of his videos? So I’m all set for today for a cartoon ride 🙂
Here is wishing Mickey a very happy 83rd B’day! He is going to live in my heart forever and ever! And I hope Chirpy likes him too!
