I often think about what I’d be doing at that moment if my life hadn’t decided to Thelma and Louise itself off a cliff, and I didn’t have to now live in a world I don’t recognize. I like to think that the Emily living in an alternate universe (AU) truly is killing it (oops) and everything’s just coming up roses for her. Bryan and I had big plans for our future, and we couldn’t wait to get started! And by big plans I mean getting excited for a domestic DINK life resembling a lot of stuff white people like. But you know that’s cool, because I was fine being basic, and I’m pretty sure AU Emily is too!
I’m pretty sure Bryan will be making tacos for dinner with his homemade pico de gallo and we’ll Netflix and chill® (for real, we’re boring and married) with our mini pig Jean Ralphio Saperstein aka “Raffi”. I look over and see something like this:
You know, the usual. We’re also busy decorating our recently purchased starter home that we bought in [insert east coast city here] because you know we be about that HGTV lyfe son! Also, our jobs are totes fulfilling and we are each other’s biggest cheerleaders, natch. Anyhoo, oh it’s the weekend in the AU! Must be time for date night. Look, here we are now just enjoying cocktails and wedded bliss at our local farm to table watering hole! No bigs, just AU Emily and Bryan living their best lives.
Man, we love getting up early on the weekends…but only because we choose to! We’re DINKs remember? No kids to dictate our sleeping schedule here! On this particular day, we’re going for a hike. Lots of #selfie opps to let people know we care about nature and shit. Also, look how cute we are!
Man, I just love us! Always finding ways to just be happy being together. I’m so lucky to have met the love of my life, and so lucky he’s ALIVE and well here beside me! I’m so #blessed. This year has flown by I tell ya. It’s time to get the Christmas card ready. Can you believe we’ve been married a whole year? Well one down, a lifetime to go! Nothing could EVER change that plan! Oh wait.
I don’t know guys. What do you think? Matching sweaters too much? You’re right, of course they aren’t!
Great! Nailed it! Now it’s time to settle in to a relaxing holiday season, just the two of us doing whatever we want…just like we planned it. Life is perfect! But man, all this relaxing is making me tired. Bryan and I def need a vacay STAT. Let’s see, someplace warm and sandy obvi. We just really need to unwind and escape the cold weather. This Seasonal Affective Disorder is really getting to me this year. “Alexa, make me an appointment with my therapist for January 5th when I’m back from St. Lucia”. Sorry, just a little multi-tasking for this modern wifey.
Sigh. St. Lucia was great. I really wish we could have stayed a full two weeks instead of just 10 days though, you know? I think I need a vacation from my vacation amiright??? I’ll go take a long hot bath, while the old ball and chain makes his famous white chicken chili. I don’t know what it is, he just NEVER lets me in kitchen! He’s a quirky one that Bryan, teehee!
So, yeah, sorry I think I just blacked out for a minute. I was too busy daydreaming about my AU self and what she’s up to. Oh, I wrote it all down? Great. But in all seriousness, can you tell I’m just a teensy bit jelly about AU Emily and her totally awesome totally normal life? In reality, I’m sitting here in a hotel room in Radford, Virginia (don’t bother looking it up) with Doritos dust on my shirt, a wicked case of late onset chin acne, and Day 1 period cramps. You know, every girl’s dream! Wishing I could FaceTime Bryan from my business trip so he could “kiss me through the phone” (remember that song?!) and make fake fart noises that he blamed on Raffi. That, my friends, was really my best life. Hopefully once this chin acne clears up, I can finally get that modeling contract I’ve been vying for. I sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so I’ve got a good feeling! In the mean time, send some Proactiv. K thanks, bye.
