The Best of All Worlds

If I could have the best of all worlds… my hair would be either curly or straight. Not both depending on its mood.

If I could have the best of all worlds… there would be hardly any calories in cheese. Also, lactose intolerance would not exist.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I would be able to work because I wanted to, because I enjoyed what I was doing, or because I was just bored.

If I could have the best of all worlds… my family and friends would all be blessed with excellent health, financial security and love.

If I could have the best of all worlds… flip flops, open toed sandals, jeans, summer dresses, capri pants and tank tops would be appropriate business attire.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I would always live in a place that has warm weather year round and with an ocean within walking distance.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I would be able to afford to buy a home of my own. And then a beach house, a lake house, a condo in the city and a flat in Paris.

If I could have the best of all worlds… strawberries, black berries, artichokes, Italian sweet peppers and wild mushrooms would always be in season. Also, they would be affordable.

If I could have the best of all worlds… my closest girlfriends would always live around the corner from me.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I would have time, money and energy to complete my Bachelor’s Degree. Then I would move on to my Master’s and then my Doctorate. I love learning.

If I could have the best of all worlds… there would be no such thing as “losing touch” with someone. I would always have the time to be a good friend.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I’d be married to my best friend, he would make me laugh so hard my sides would ache, he would cherish me, I would never take him for granted.

If I could have the best of all worlds… there would be peace. People would respect other’s beliefs and traditions. There would be no “my way” is right and “your way” is wrong. No “my God” and “your God”.

If I could have the best of all worlds… it would always be sunny and warm but there would never be draught and all the plants would be green and lush.

If I could have the best of all worlds… no one would ever lie. No one would ever cheat. There would be no such thing as hurt feelings.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I could spend my days planning menus, scouring stores for perfect ingredients. Choosing wines to suit my friends’ moods. Plates and dining accessories to compliment seasons.

If I could have the best of all worlds… my cat would be sleepy when I am sleepy.

If I could have the best of all worlds… there would be no traffic, no road rage, no migraines, no insensitive people without filters, no oblivious slow moving drivers when you’re trying to get home after a long day.

If I could have the best of all worlds… there would be no such thing as a bikini wax. Unwanted body hair would not exist. My nails would grow in perfectly manicured.

If I could have the best of all worlds… I would have rows and rows of book shelves full of alphabetized classics. Original editions. Digitally re-mastered CDs. Closets full of Ann Taylor and Banana Republic. Color coordinated. Walnut floors. Cream colored furniture. Clean lines. Colored walls. Lots of space. Picture windows.

If I could have the best of all worlds… cat fur would remain on the cat.

well having never experienced a bikini wax I can't fully appreciate your point of view but my imagination I think is enough to agree with that and the rest of them.

Ocean within walking distance... being able to fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves, only way you can improve on that is to be able to share it with someone special...

OK, OK, OK - how about I just say DITTO and be done with it! ;)

Nice post Tiff

Tiffany! I agree with everything you said...open toe shoes, flip flops...colored walls...walking distance from ocean...perfectly manicured nails...I just got a manicure today and I swear it changed my entire mood. I wanted to see myself type and dial on my cell phone. :)
