Champagne Dreams – A Quadrille

Champagne Dreams

Champagne dreams
with a cheap red wine budget
But she knew how to impress
She walked the walk
and talked the talk
Mesmerizing, enchanting
Spinning her yarn
Captivating, enthralling
Audience drooling 
Drinking nectar from her cup
as she ordered
Dom Perignon by the case

    Love the story you tell here, and it’s so true. I’ve never tasted Dom; Veuve Clicquot is my favorite champagne. 🙂

      Yes, Veuve Cliquot is my fave too! ☺️ Great prompt Linda!

    Christine, this makes me think of:

    fake it ’til you make it.

    You really told us a little story here.

      Thanks David. Yes, that’s a good example of this ☺️

    This is a great examination of people trying to be something they are not purely because they worry about the impression they will make on others!

      Yes Ingrid. We have all witnessed these poseurs. A fascinating watch!

    Not bad to be ambitious, as long as one is true and not fake. That’s where you find the most success – a fun read!

    Too many talk the talk. It’s sad to think we can’t all just be ourselves and feel accepted.

      Yes isn’t that the truth Mish. It is really quite something to see someone like this in action. Sad in a way 😢

    Things are not always as they seem, indeed. Well spilled.
