Pure Decadence

So I'm taking a hot bath. A hot, hot bath. The steam is curling up all around me, my body relaxes, my mind relaxes and I think: I deserve this everyday. A hot bath strewn with rose petals and lavender flowers. Tat would be perfect. A hot bath everyday in a tub strewn with rose petals and lavender flowers and a full body massage. With aromatic oils. And then a delicious prepared by someone else lunch, of feta cheese and vine ripe tomatoes on a bed of three different types of lettuce and warm buttered rolls, And then...and then...

Well, you get the drift. My fantasies became more and more elaborate and extravagant and all at once I'm struck by an idea. What a perfect meme (please say you agree!) Just click on the extended entry and I'll tell you more...

Please copy the following into your blog, and play along with me!

What would you do if you could, if money and time was not an object? What treats would you give yourself, take as part and parcel of your day? This game is played a bit like the ABC game where you list all the things you will take with you on a vacation but in this case there is no alphabetical order. Just copy the list and add one more decadent and wild luxury that you would engage in. Your fantasy can be anything from doable if you had just a bit more time and/or money, to "not unless Bill Gates leaves his fortune to me in his will" to "I don't think we have reached that point in science yet!

Come play! I want to see where this goes. Here's mine list:

1. For at least one hour every evening, right after I got the kids to bed, I would take a hot, hot bath, strewn with flowers of all sorts while soft music played in the background.

Now your turn. Ready, set PLAY!

That would be my fantasy too, although I'd throw in a good book and some candles.

Mine involves cocktail hour after the kids are in bed. I'd like a civilized hour to spend with my wife, drinking a glass of wine or single malt, and chatting. Maybe we'd eat olives, too. But the unhuried hour spent in each other's company is key.

You're tracking very close to my perfect afternoon, although the focus would be on a prolonged therapeutic massage rather than the hot bath - the bath merely sets the stage for the massage.

After that, some sushi and white wine, perhaps a cold beer. Then a snuggle and a nap.
