Hello friends...and I do hope you really are my friends. What I am about to confess to you may test the strength of our blogging bond. If you have ever read my blog profile, you know I have a fascination obsession with all things Tudor. I have read dozens of books on Henry VIII and all his six wives and then started on Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary. My goodness those were scary times to be living in the court of the Tudor family. I can't help but be in awe of the power, opulence (always at the expense of the little people) and the total disregard for law if the current ones did not suit you. I have imagined hundreds of times what it must have been like when Henry went looking for another fertile womb to give him that son he yearned for. Too bad phones and answering machines did not exist back then. I'm sure most eligible maidens at court would have had a message something like this.." Hi, Lady Primpsalot is not home right now. Please leave a brief message and she will get back to you as soon as possible, unless this is Your Majesty, then I have gone on a year long progress (road trip) and am not sure when I will return (in other words...pick someone else as I quite enjoy wearing pearls around my neck!)" Not a good time to be pretty and available.
So the other night after dreaming about the Tudors many times, it finally happened. I can't believe I'm telling you this.....................(she pauses and wonders if she should delete this post and just bake another pie)..................We Did It! Oh yeah, you heard me right Henry VIII and I did IT!!!!! You know as in the biblical term he 'knows me now' or the countrified 'roll in the hay'. First let make it very clear..it was young studly Henry, not old fat Henry. Funny..he had the same image thing as Elvis..go figure.
So here's the details...Henry just walked in the room and took me...that's it....then I woke up. I turned to hubby and said "I just had sex with Henry VIII!" I think I heard him mumble something about 'not raising someone else's kid'. So there you have it. I hope I have not offended any of my friends, but come on guys, it's just a dream. I would never in a million years give away my virginity just to be Queen of England ( spoken as she adjusts her tiara ).
How about you...ever had a weird dream you hesitated to tell anyone about???? Be honest!
Until next time, be kind and stay creative.
