Yes Where have all the good men gone and where are all the Gods?
Where’s the street wise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I needI need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
– Bonnie Tyler
I need to confess that I love the Hallmark Christmas movie. I know you are all rolling your eyes. And I once did too for a lot of years.
But let me tell you how I got to this point. I sadly was hungover after a swingers party where I was the second person naked but didn’t get laid.
I had no food and my beloved ruby red vodka and topo chico with a side shot of fireball. I enjoyed a hot tub in cold weather and I was ready for fun, only in my own mind.
But then I woke up in my car naked to my husband saying “do you really want your kids finding you like this?
So I went to bed and woke to the Hallmark Channel and I found it so refreshing that I could watch the movie hungover. Like I didn’t need to know the plot but I could wake up and get it all immediately
Now I can tell time by these movies and know it will be a woman out of her comfort zone and there will be an issue at minute 90 but by minute 115 they will be pledging their undying love and kissing by the Christmas tree.
I watch these movies and think to myself that they are stupid. But like a train wreck, I can’t avert my eyes.
So if you are suiting across from me rolling your eyes, know I was once you but a crazy swingers party served to bring out my inner romantic…
