If I Were Rich…

July 15th, 2010

I’d buy Indian summer and keep it all to myself. When it’s dryer-lint humid in South Carolina and so hot that dogs won’t put their paws down on the sidewalk, I’d have my yard air-conditioned.  I’d downsize my boobs and raise them up so I wouldn’t need a bra in summer. No more underwires. In fact, I’d stop wearing underwear at all — if you’re rich you don’t have to be respectable. I’d hire someone to exercise for me so I wouldn’t have to sweat. I’d never sweat again! I’d put a ceiling fan in my car to move the a/c around. As we all know, it’s easier for a camel than a rich man to go through the eye of a needle (I always wondered why either would be forced to do that–wasn’t there a side road they could have taken?), but sometimes it’s nice to dream, to want, to imagine. I can almost feel the shock of cold water that suspends my breath as I slip into that pool, the weightlessness, the lifting of  a burden off my shoulders and the lift of water wings replacing them. But, dear Guardian Angel,  since I’m not rich and there’s no pool waiting for me at home, I’d be happy just to have an automatic ice maker/dispenser on my refrigerator door someday.

  1. When we moved into our house, my kids were thrilled with the automatic ice/water dispenser. I didn’t care at the time, but now I’d find it hard to live without.

    And if I were rich, I’d travel. I’d build a beautiful art studio with great lighting and sofas and a beverage center so my friends could hang out there.

  2. Dream On Alice! as my daughter would say!!! hehe I’ve ALWAYS wanted a pool, an inground pool!!! Let’s make it happen somehow girly! Some day, some day, dream on!

  3. Haha!
    If I were rich,I would live much as I live now. But with more sleep. And maybe someone else would cook for me from time to time?
