Today on our way to the next hotel, yet another hotel, we drove by a place that advertised 'adult fantasies'. Hmmm, I thought as we drove by a parking lot unusually full for mid morning. I know what they 'wink wink' mean by adult fantasies. Here in the hotel they have a channel that offers adult fantasies too. In the advertising there is a picture of a woman with painfully huge breasts who looks like she'd just been basted in oil. She is looking out at me with a 'come hither little boy' smile on her plump full lips.
I flipped by the channel and found something else. Later, we brought the room to silence to read for a couple of hours. I began to think about 'adult fantasies' ... I personally don't want to be impaled on torpedo breasts or end up on the floor after sliding off oily skin. I don't see these as 'adult fantasies' at all ... teen fantasies maybe - but not adult.
Playing with the idea of adult fantasies was kind of fun, but I had difficulty leaving the teen years. Win a lottery, OK nice images come from that one but they are hardly adult. When I did try really hard and came up with things like 'world peace' I sounded a bit too much like a beauty queen.
So what is my ultimate adult fantasy? I pictured coming out to the car this morning and navigating a dangerous ramp down to the pavement. That's it. My adult fantasy is ULTIMATE AND UNIVERSAL ACCESSIBILITY - in employment, in architecture, in opportuntity, in education, in ... well, everything. I pictured none left out, none facing barriers of prejudice, of high curbs and low expectations.
I pictured going into workplaces and seeing those with a variety of disabilities performing alongside workers from a variety of places with a variety of beliefs from a variety of backgrounds. I pictured never having to wonder if I could get in. I pictured never having to wonder if I would fit in. I pictured a society that recognized the normalcy of abnormacy.
It's a wonderful adult fantasy ... That's mine ... what's yours?
