12 Apr Highly Impractical Romance
A loooong time ago, Sarah and I watched this tres cheesy movie. It was actually kind of funny: at one point, the main character breezed into his love interest’s office in a whirlwind of rose petals, champagne bubbles, and flowery language.
With a quick sweep of his arm, he cleared her cluttered desk, sending papers, pens, and other office-y accoutrements flying in all directions. The lovers somehow ended up on top of her newly cleared desk, kissing one another deeply, passionately, even! Within seconds the scene tastefully faded to black.
Heartstopping, eh? Also highly impractical… BUT! There’s something very good buried beneath the Danielle-Steele-iness of that scene.
I confess: I have a very cluttered desk. I’m currently working with two online start-up companies, while launching a business of my own. Sarah and I have a two kids under two years old, and boy do things get busy.
At times, we (recklessly?) decide to ‘clear our desk’. Impractical? Definitely. Awesome? Absolutely – you must try it.
Go ahead, watch the appointments and deadlines clatter to the floor; use the newly created space to spend time with your lover. Engage in some highly impractical romance.
Your sex life will thank you!
