We’re not sure if these are technically millennials (though they sure sound like it), but the Wall Street Journal reports that “adult recess” is booming and it’s all because “being a grown-up is hard.”
Decades from elementary school, people are reliving schoolyard memories with tetherball, hopscotch and Lincoln Logs at “adult recess” events, despite sore muscles and tweaked knees; “I thought back to the last time when I really had fun.” https://t.co/cThPM5Wimp

We hope none of the adults are getting sore muscles playing with Lincoln Logs while they wait for their student loans to be forgiven, ’cause being a grown-up is just too difficult these days.

Meanwhile, actual kids have recess reduced & less time & space to just play.

Slate has argued that what cities like San Francisco need are dorms for grown-ups. Hey, paying $1,400 to $2,400 a month to live in a room with no kitchen, living room, or bathroom sounds great.
Play golf like adults

In the real world of adults, you actually graduate to things like tennis and golf because you realize you look like an escaped lunatic doing these other things.

Here’s a great idea:
If you're an adult and want to play children's games, have children! Or give some parents you know a break. If you can't do that, then sign up with @BBBSLA or some other organization that mentors kids!
