Black Friday Fantasy
by Amber Lea Easton
After a day of eating turkey, pie, etcetera and drinking to excess to deal with family dramas, the idea of being sexy is absolutely absurd. I'm bloated, hungover and sick of small talk. What? You want to go shopping at 4AM? Hell, no, I say, no matter what the "deal" is. Hey, I'm just being honest.
Here's my fantasy of what the perfect Black Friday would be if I could snap my fingers and make it so...
Ah, there he is... the man of my dreams and he's...what? Oh, yeah...he's asking what he can do for me because he's so damn thankful I'm in his life. (It is Thanksgiving, you know.) I stretch my hands over my head, squinting against the mid-morning sun streaming in from the windows because the world has cooperated in allowing me to sleep in, and think about what kind of request I can make.
Oh so many things come to mind...a massage with no expectations of sex, just him wanting to make me happy...a pitcher of mimosas next to the bed (hair of the dog for the hangover)...silence in the house because the kids have mysteriously found something other to do than be entertained by me. After the massage and the emptying of the pitcher, he says he loves it when I don't shower, my hair is a tangled mess and I remain in my pajamas all day. Ah, isn't he sweet? For lunch, he brings me some leftovers and tells me to nap for the rest of the day while he takes the family out to a movie.
How quickly the fantasy ends and reality intrudes...the kids are restless, the dogs want out, extended family is loud, no one is offering me a massage or anything remotely like that, the energy in the house is frantic and questions abound, what to do, where to go, how to entertain everyone?! Oh, and let's not forget the hangover. Hmm...if nothing else, I'm sure I have some vodka somewhere. Let's shop!
