Will’s Entry: Fantasy

8 Dec

If you thought this entry was going to be about Fantasy Basketball, you’d be mistaken.  The topic was conceived while watching Cinderella with the family on Sunday night.

This movie is supposed to be every little girl’s fantasy?  Every single girl is waiting for her Prince Charming presumably?  I really don’t get it.   Let me get this straight:

This guy needs to be pressured into looking for a wife.  The solution is to hold a ball where all the women attending dress up and try to be as glamourous and attractive as can possibly be.  They are then paraded in front of him, one by one where they are judged 100% by their physical beauty.  No speaking, no conversation, no interaction.  Just a quick visual scan from top to bottom, then they simply curtsy and are sent on their way. 

Then comes Cinderella.  Quite the first impression as he chooses her and his love is professed prior to her saying a word, let alone her name.  Either it’s those breathtaking looks or her dancing that have him smitten.  I suppose it could be her amazing dress that changes colors every two minutes . . .

After her abrupt exit from the ball, the genius decides to find his love by identifying A woman that matches the glass slipper (obviously no 2 women have the same shoe size.  They must not have Payless in that kingdom).  Not only that, he has his SERVANTS go search for him instead of doing it himself.  What? Was he so visually entranced that he has already forgotten what she looks like or was she that forgettable?  He was probably home playing Halo 3 on his Xbox . . .

Moral of the Story:  The only thing that will attract a guy are your looks.  If you can dance, that’s a plus.  You just need to compete and beat dozens of others females as you swagger down a runway.  Whose fantasy is this?

That said, I’ve seen my wife in Cinderella’s gown and it had about the same effect on me so maybe Disney was really onto something.

    I didn’t know Cinderella’s dress changes color. I thought it was Sleeping Beauty. Obviously I haven’t gotten to the point of watching Cinderella with Brooke. Although, we did watch Toy Story. You’re funny.

    I love the way you think, Will! I will say with somewhat certainty…it was my personality that won over your Uncle. 😉

    The only thing Disney was missing from this equation was food. Had Cinderella made him a sandwich at the ball, he would have proposed on the spot. (Am I right??)

    Yep, Prince Charming is just a shallow guy, let’s face it! Now Belle on the other hand falls for a grumpy, beasty looking fellow, how’s that!?

      An obvious case of Stockholm Syndrome.

    I love it Will! I would like to see the real Cinderella story. Where Prince Charming is a self absorbed, cheating jerk who found a pretty girl that is used to cleaning all the time. Lets identify all the signs once again of Disney’s Prince Charming.
    1. He judges solely on looks
    2. He isn’t interested in finding the girl himself, and is forced into responsibility do to time restraints
    3. Looks for the girl who’s prior occupation is “constantly cleaning”
    4. Is illogical and rash when finding solutions to problems
    5. And still lives at home
