So girlfriend and were chatting yesterday. She’s around my age and had a beautiful mother whose genes she inherited.
Although she doesn’t think so. And so she’s had a few little cosmetic tweaks, even though her significant other thinks she’s a goddess.
No surprise. Because every girlfriend with a beautiful mother has the same thought: I can never live up to her.
My mother never traded on her beauty so I’m unscathed in that area.
So girlfriend and I were talking back and forth about the things women chat about (aging, sex, body image, sex, diet and exercise, sex) and of course, deprivation.
Afterwards, I sat in deep thought.
Some people dream of a world that pivots around the brotherhood of man. Ok, I get that and I buy into it for sure.
Others dream of a world without disease. Yes, I subscribe to that world, too.
How about a world of endless, boundless love? Who wouldn’t want that?
But when push came to shove, when I considered what a fantasy world for me might look like, here’s what came to mind.
In my fantasy world, I would not be wearing these around my waist.
In my fantasy world, red velvet cupcakes would be a main course.
In my fantasy world, the health benefits of chocolate would extend to large pieces of triple-decker chocolate decadence. We would be encouraged to have several a day.
And key lime pie would be considered an excellent source of calcium and Vitamin C and an ideal breakfast food.
Which raised the most important question of all: Without carbs and sugar, is life even worth living?
Serious stuff. So weigh in.
Or maybe not.
In my fantasy world we’ve banished “the scale.”
But do comment. Thank you!
