It was expected behavior for a kid.

Just because you are and "adult" it doesn't mean you can't go out and play. Hell, when I was in St. Paul I'd ride my bike ten miles to get to work. For most of the way there was this bike path, and for a short duration of that path there was a bird sanctuary.
Now, I grew up with the woods, literally in my back yard. I would spend as much time as possible there. Granted, I was covered with mosquito bites, because there was a creek that ran through it, but it was the greatest. Getting back to the bird sanctuary.
I would stop right in the middle, right where the creek was and day dream for a little while. I'd see the birds, admire all the trees, bugs, and wild life. To me that's playing... The good ol' imagination doesn't have to be sapped away by unnecessary inventions if one doesn't want it to.
