I was at home … french polishing my furniture … when the phone rang.
"Congratulations Madam … you have been carefully selected as the winner of the 'Spend a Day with Mr Butler' competition".
Which was unbelievable … considering I never even entered it.
Gerard Butler was coming to spend the day with me … the very next day!!!
I awoke early the next morning … which is quite unbelievable in itself … and was delighted to find that I had lost five kilos … and that I was having not a good … but a perfect hair day.
I was beside myself with anticipation … the doorbell rang … which is unbelievable because I've been nagging Hubby to fix it for over three years now … and there he was! In all his glorious beauty and rugged hunkiness.
Our eyes met … the world stood perfectly still … and in that moment … Gerard Butler fell madly, deeply and eternally in love with me. Unbelievable hey!
He threw himself at my feet … and begged me to make him the happiest man on this earth by returning with him to Hollywood … or London … or Scotland … or wherever … where we would live in idyllic bliss for the rest of out lives.
I was about to jump into his Lamborghini … when a deeply buried memory surfaced in my brain.
I was forced to recall the existence of my husband and children.
So I gently informed Gerry that I was needed here at home … that I really couldn't leave these men alone … because who would wash their underpants then?
Gerry sobbed brokenly … his heart an aching chasm of crushed dreams.
Then I took his hands in mine … running one hand absently up his strong muscular arm.
"There is one thing you could do for me," I murmured softly.
"For you … My Love … I will do anything"
I leaned forward and whispered my special request into his perfect ear.
And then the alarm went off!
