Nope It’s Not a Fairy Tale
By Julie Davidson
So after 72 days, Kim Kardashian found out that she no longer wanted to be married. She told Glamour magazine, “It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”
As young girls, we may have had some fairy-tale thoughts, but as most of us found out, that’s just not realistic.
For one thing, fairy tales have knights in white armor. Think about that getup. Very cold. Not to mention out of date. My guy wears Levi’s.
Or Prince Charming. If he is so charming, how come he was never married before?
If you live in a fairy tale, you wear poofy dresses. Can you imagine nursing a kid in that type of outfit? Oh, and there is a crown. It does look a bit pretentious.
And a fully loaded minivan is way cooler and faster than a horse-drawn carriage. That’s not gonna work shuttling kids to violin lessons and soccer games.
In fairy tales, there are fairies everywhere. Like we don’t have enough dust to deal with already!
And pardon me for saying this, but gnomes are a bit creepy.
Characters in the fairy-tale world live in castles. Do you know how much it would cost to heat that thing?
Fairy tales are great. For Disney. For the rest of us, maybe a minivan, a husband with a slight beer belly, and imperfect kids are just fine. Okay…maybe maids waiting on us every now and then would be okay though.
