Visions of Sugar Plum Faeries

"oh, i'm so excited," she squealed like a little girl,
and danced about the living room
like a little faerie sprite.
"we're going to the nutcracker, baby!
the nutcracker!"

and he laughed deeply as
he watched her dance
out her excitement of
the coming evening's events.

"i'm gonna sit there in my little seat," she continued,
"and gasp with delight when the lights dim
and say "oooo" and "awww" with
all the other people in the audience.

"oh, and baby, you should know that there's a great
possibility that i'll become four-years-old tonight
but i promise to grow up again
before we leave...
just enough to keep things legal,"
she finished with a flirtatious wink.

and they giggled together
as she continued pirouetting around the room,
eyes heavy with sugar plum dreams.
