After a glorious Saturday morning of making the kids' breakfast, taking the garbage out, picking up dog poo and hanging out washing - I have made a major life decision.

I am going to marry Will Smith and live a Hollywood life far away from the suburbs.  I am sure Jada doesn't have to do the above (maybe she makes her kids breakfast) but I don't see her lugging garbage out or picking up dog poo.  In fact, I am convinced that once you reach a certain of level of wealth, you simply stop doing ordinary tasks.

I've always liked Will - and I am sure that my life would be dramatically improved if we were together.  

Now to find my expired passport and head to the airport...

Well Jada did more than just marry Will Smith - I know its not your intention but you are giving her and other successful women a disservice. Jada was an actor in her own right and if she now has to not do the mundane things, its due to her own effort and not just because she married well.  You are also doing Will a disservice - he saw more in Jada than just someone who wants to use him for the good life.

I get not wanting to do the mundane just sick of the lets marry a rich man being presented as the way to do it.

I’m paying my 10yo a dollar to pick up the dog turds...life changing for me, so worth the cash.

edited to add that I know it’s off topic but just worth a mention.

I am hearing you OP and get the intent of your post.

A rich man would mean I could be a lady of leisure. I dont want to work, I just want it given to me. Winning the lotto works too.

I would just do whatever I wanted for the rest of my life.

I put a lot of effort into my career too and I’m poor. Oh well.

Hey Bam1 - come to my house.  Please.

I've just had a screaming fit at my DH because our daughter doesn't eat.  I don't have a job.  I don't have any money.  I don't have a future that isn't completely ****ed up whatever happens.  And I've watched interviews with Jada and she's seriously cool.

I get you OP.

An escapist fantasy is a wonderful thing when the (dog) sh*t hits the fan.

Personally I choose not remarry.  But if Brendon Urie or Gerard Way are open to it, I'm sure we could come up with a suitable arrangement in which I live a completely different existence that includes them. :)

I could also be tempted by Pete Wentz or Frank Iero.

I totally get the need for escape OP. I think we need to win lotto and live a life of leisure. I’m thinking a lot of lying around by the pool, waving my hand around when I’d like a cocktail followed by a nap and dinner someplace fancy. definitely we would hire people to pick up after the dog!

That reminds me, I'm dragging Dh to see the new Bad Boys movie the day school goes back( cheap Tuesday!).
I do like me some Will Smith too.

I’d like Jeff Goldblum pls. Or Sam Neil. Or both. Honestly I’m not fussy. :lol:

If it helps, DH and I sometimes play the ‘if we didn’t have kids game.’ And fantasise about all the things we could be doing, like at he beach if we didn't have to spend our time preventing the kids flinging themselves into the ocean because they fancy themselves as Moana.

Happy to drive you to the airport OP.

Also, with your consent, :bighug: I get how sh*tty a future is when everything is stacked against you.

Honestly OP, your post is not really a lot different from the fanfic I am writing.  I just took my alternate reality a step further by writing 300 pages worth of it.  I live there quite often.

Sure beats working and dealing with MH issues and cat vomit and cleaning and...  oh, gotta go, Brendon's calling me. :evilgrin:

I enjoy seeing on Instagram the messages that Nicole Richie sends to Joel Madden occasionally when he’s out of the country: photos of the dog poo she’s leaving for him to deal with when he gets home.

I get it, OP. I sometimes reflect in those moments how the Royal family (for some reason that’s who comes to mind) doesn’t have to worry about planning all the details of their holidays including packing; planning and cooking meals; taking out rubbish; changing dirty nappies; putting out washing after a long day’s work, etc etc.

Even though I’d hate the spotlight and many other aspects of their lives, the grass looks green over there sometimes!

I lead a surprisingly detailed alternate life with a particular movie star when having to do tedious things irl so I totally get it.
Actually I’ve always lived an alternate life with either someone I know or someone famous since I was about 15!

I once read an interesting AskReddit thread where someone asked "What do the rich buy that the rest of us barely know exists?"
And the top answer was "time". Rich people can pay someone to do all those crappy tasks that chew up our day, and therefore have way more time on their hands.
And so money = time. Which really sounds like money = happiness to me lol.

Same really.  I've always had a whole other life inside my head.  Probably since very early childhood actually.  Obviously not in any way romantic or sexual at that stage, but I always had another life on the side.

But go on, spill.  Who are you with now?

Its nice to know others do it too.

Okay.


You can’t say you dated a famous person and then don’t give us more details. :lol: isn’t that like illegal by EB police?

Mine’s very predictable- Bradley Cooper. My true love is Brandon Flowers from the killers but he seems too happily married for it to be a really satisfying alternate life, it would feel wrong lol.

You are so wrong. Jada is perfect. She has done many interviews explaining how perfect she is. She would not only make her kids breakfast, take garbage out, pick up poo and do washing and do an hour of yoga, but she would do it all while singing like a diva and looking like she just came from her favourite salon - of course, she would have done her own hair and makeup too.
