Sunday Scribblings: Fantasy

Cinderella Revisited


Once upon a time (last night), Cindy got a call that her friend, Sleeping Beauty, was having a birthday party and wanted her to attend. So Cindy told her husband, the prince (who was now king), and he gladly let her go. He was more than happy to take care of the little prince and princess, and watch ESPN coverage of the AFC title contest between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts. So she put on her glad rags, driving off in her magical Subaru to the mythical city on the water called Boston.

Beauty's party was actually a surprise party. The event was much smaller than the ball Cindy attended when she fell in love with her once and future king. It was a modest but swank dinner party, yet Cindy was sorry she did not bring her camera so she could post pics on Poem Mom’s blog. Still, she enjoyed seeing old friends. Even though she missed her family, she liked being a single girl for the night. And after Beauty made her last birthday wish, and the restaurant check was settled, Cindy headed home, well before her self-imposed curfew of midnight.

The next day, she awoke to the grand news that Hillary Clinton is running for president in 2008, the Powerball jackpot is $240 million (not that we play, but that’s the stuff that fantasies are made of), and the Pats are well prepared to win tonight’s AFC game and to win the Super Bowl. Again.

The End.

Poet Mom,
Sounds like the beginning of a great story.

I love the juxtaposition of fairy tale language and TV sports and other mundane things, it made me smile. ;-)

MY fantasy? Hillary realizes she's too polarizing a figure, clearing the way for Obama. ;) Good post.

Marilyn, I think both Hillary and Obama have an uphill battle. But I'd vote for either candidate.

I liked it! Now there is an ultimate fantasy-winning the lottery! Can you imagine? Last year when it got really high my friend and I each bought a ticket and said we'd split it if either of us won and we both had this psycho "feeling" that we were somehow going to win! Of course if I had I would likely not be at home right now but living out all my travel fantasies!

I would vote for either candidate also--what a fantasy come true that would be to shake up the government system with such change!
