Sunday Scribblings "Demands"

G'Day,
The Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is "Demands". What would you demand if you were a star in your dressing room.
I have heard of stars making demands to concert organizers etc when they visit other places or perform concerts. I shake my head and wonder what they are up to, what is their motive in demanding such silly things.
If I was one of them and thought I could get away with such behavior what would I want.
Well to start with, I don't think I would be very proud of myself for behaving like that....but... I would like a little luxury and pampering. What woman wouldn't like that if they could have it?
What would I like to pamper and spoil me?
How nice it might be to be able to hold people to ransom with silly behavior, for me to be considered important enough that they would bow to my demands.
How about a masseur and a big bubbly spa bath with pretty smelling stuff in the water and drinks of my choice beside the bath waiting for me, maybe a jug of slightly sweetened iced tea. The room would be all white with lots of lush plants and flowers to decorate it. Gentle music, soft thick fluffy towels and maybe some of those delicious liqueur chocolates that I love. Mmmm. Yep I could take that.
My room would be just the right temperature, about 24 degrees Celsius, slightly cooler at night, and have a big soft, but well supporting bed, following through from the bathroom with the plant and flower theme.
My meals would be calorie counted by the chef to allow me to have that extra little bit of indulgence with the liqueur chocolates beside the bathtub. And....nobody would step through the door into my retreat who wasn't invited by me!
Two way glass... yes! Two way glass... so I could look outside and see everything that was going on over the city and in the hall way. That would be fun. I would like to be able to switch it off though, when I wanted to.
How about someone to share it all with, someone who wanted and loved the same things as me, loved me. Hmmm, now who is that? That might be a little bit more difficult. If I was a star who could I trust? Who would there be out there in the big scary, fake and faithless world that didn't want me for my fame or my finances or the prestige of being with a star like me. Who could I trust? Who would love me? Not many I suspect.
I think I will stay the way I am. No choice there anyway. Hahaha!
Bye.
Love Linda.

I think I too would prefer to stay as I am. I couldnt give up my privacy for stardom and be happy.

Thanks for your interesting thoughts.

Carina said...

Sounds like you just want beauty and peace. Good post!

Shadow said...

yeah, i don't understand either why fame should induce such ridiculous demands...

Ima Weed said...

Thank you for the visit to weedy acres. You have some great photos, love those Magpies!

Julie Jordan Scott said...

Reading all these demands reminds me we all want much of the same thing... and I bet the prima donna celebrities do, too.

Daily Panic said...

making demands is demanding! i agree with being yourself.

Denise Moncrief said...

Demands no matter how great or small always come with a price tag! Be careful what you ask for. Looks like you prefer beauty and serenity to glitz and glamour. I think perhaps the price of contentment is far less than the price of fame.

who would rather be more down to earth that Linda May. nice writing

keiths ramblings said...

This is something I'll never need to worry about! nice piece.

Thomma Lyn said...

Ha! I like how you wrote this -- leading up to the end, the most important part: love and companionship.

Lilibeth said...

yep. We start thinking about all we would like, then it leads us to who would really like us that way...enough to share the life with us. You lead to that point well.

Dee Martin said...

I loved this Linda - agree with all (though I wouldn't mind a few of those chocolates...)

oldegg said...

Anything given freely is so much better than something you have demanded. Your post is great, teasing us with the what ifs and temptations only to bring us back down to earth with the reality.

Mountain Mama said...

Isn't it funny how once we get warmed up we can think of many things we would like.
I'm so independent that I don't know if I would enjoy pampering.
However if I were feeling down and Sean COnnery were available with a hug.......
