So today, as I sit here freezing I am thinking it would be my fantasy to be a super model. In this fantasy I would not have to worry about how to stay warm when I need to go running - because I would be skinny. I would not have to consider what is for dinner because I would never eat. And I would not have to reconcile my checkbook because I would have so much money it wouldn't matter. But then reality hits and I realize that if I was a super model I wouldn't enjoy the awesome way I feel when I run for 90 minutes all by myself, I probably would never really enjoy the great taste of homemade chili on a cold night - and..... okay I have nothing for the money thing - it would be great to not have to balance a checkbook. I am thankful for all that I have and really wouldn't want to be a super model - well maybe just for Oscar's Night.
The Cake Maker
I just made 100 mini cupcakes for my friend Pamela's bday and I decided it would be a very cool fantasy to be on ace of cakes or the hgtv food network cake contest. Now I don't want to do all the work to get there I just want to stand there at the end when it is all finished and get the 10/k check or be at the famous person's party with them saying - you are so cool you made this cake that's amazing! I mean what a job - you make cakes - how bad could it be if it goes wrong - oh sorry, maybe next time you'll like the chocolate one. What a great job -what do you have to do make cakes - how much pressure could be in that - its a cake! If you mess up you can always start over - if it turns out dry or not good people just won't eat it and you are probably doing them a favor. Yep, that would be great - a famous cake maker - because then I could have my cake and eat it too.
