If Cary Grant Would Marry Me...*

If Cary Grant would marry me, I'd be the only wife.
There'd be no need for others. I'd be the mate for life.






It would be so lovely, attraction at first glance;
And happy every after, a glorious romance.
He'd never be unhappy, I'd make sure of that.
Every night my open arms would be his Welcome Mat.


I'd cater to his every whim and even press his tux;
And I'd be sure that he received some daily love deluxe.
Cary in a Tux: Pressed to Perfection
I'd be his magic lantern and fulfill his every  wish!
And he will rub the perfect spots (I can be ticklish).
That FlickChick tickles my fancy!
We'd be Red Carpet regulars, so stylish and so glamorous;
We'd be a golden couple, so ardent and so amorous.
Our Annual Invitation
Each night he'd sleep the sleep of angels because he's so adored,
And I will read "The Joy of Sex," he never will be bored.
Our Manual
We'd have lots of babies, if that is his desire;
I'd interview most carefully the nanny that we hire.
We'd stay young together, no more May-December;
And our life would always be a grand Affair to Remember.
I just love what Flicky writes about me!
Each day would be paradise for me and handsome Cary,
Because we'd be so happy that it was me he chose to marry!
Sigh.....
Well, a girl can dream, can't she?


I wonder how long this restraining order lasts?
* apologies to Cary's real family and to poets and poetry lovers everywhere.

This post made me smile so much! I loved all of it--the photos, the funny captions, and the utterly adorable poem! Full disclosure, though: I'm gonna have to fight you for him. Cary is my dream man!!

This is absoLUTEly hilARious! Thanks for making me laugh so hard, FlickChick--you are the bee's knees!

Love,
Shelley

FlickChick said...

Hey Monkey - if only it was true!!

FlickChick said...

Watch out, Brandie - I've got crazy on my side!

FlickChick said...

Aw - thanks so much, Shelley!

Diane said...

That was amazing Flicky...just amazing and I love your poetry.

FlickChick said...

Flicky & Cary sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.....

Life would be a Holiday with Cary ... no penny serenades, no notorious affairs. Remember to walk, don't run, to the altar! Thanks for a fun post.

FlickChick said...

Thank you, Classicfilmboy, but, after all, I am His Favorite Wife ;)

Jessica P. said...

Hahah this was too funny and cute. I liked your clever rhyming. Though I think my favorite were the large red X's through the other wives haha

FlickChick said...

Thanks, Jessica - but I'm laying low in case the stalker patrol shows up.

Inge Gregusch said...

Oh, FlickChick--you romantic devil! You will/would have succeeded where so many failed, including Katharine Hepburn. Another terrific post!

Valarie Joyce said...

LOL! I think you must have used up your red lipstick after all of those red "X's" (of those who you want to be Cary's exes). ;o)

FlickChick said...

Thank you, Inge - in my dreams - I win!

FlickChick said...

Val - this post is a warning - hands off lady!!! (and yes, must get over to CVS for more lipstick!)

ClassicBecky said...

I love poetry -- what a great poem to read first thing in the morning. I'm still laughing! It was all hilarious, but my favorite couplet is:

He'd never be unhappy, I'd make sure of that.
Every night my open arms would be his Welcome Mat.

Well, that and the one about ironing his tux! You are so open and unabashed about your love for him, FlickChick, but be careful! People Will Talk! (That is my absolute favorite movie of his, followed by Arsenic and Old Lace.)

Seeing all those women with their faces crossed off made me laugh even more. I won't fight you for Cary, although he is fantastic. Just replace with Errol Flynn and it would apply to me!

You are a card!

FlickChick said...

Becky - can we make a deal? Errol for you and Cary for me?

Dawn said...

Thanks for the smile Mrs. Grant.

FlickChick said...

Thank you, Dawn - at last someone recognizes our union!

Martin Turnbull said...

Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! Best Post Of The Month Award winner goes to you. And honey, none of us blame you ONE BIT!

FlickChick said...

Oh thank you, Martin! And what a wonderful site you have - I will be lost in it for hours, I fear!

Freder said...

HAW! Love the graphics. Restraining order, indeed! FATAL ATTRACTION, anyone?

FlickChick said...

When it comes to Cary, I can be quite irrational (just warnin' you).

HailCesar said...

Cary Grant was so suave. He can top any Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise any day.

FlickChick said...

Bar none, he is the top, the Eiffel Tower, the Mona Lisa and all that jazz!
