Transporter Thursday: 1800's

If I had a transporter and could go anywhere I wanted, I would go to the 1800's. I'm convinced I was born in the wrong era. 

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm sure life in that time was tough, but also much simpler. I like to imagine that people were more polite and used manners on a regular basis. That they had morals and dignity. Pride and respect. 

I can just picture it now.. Me in a ball gown, attending a ball.. Did I mention I would also want to be rich? Because being poor back then would completely suck. But like I was saying, me dressed in a gown, waltzing across the floor with Stripper while a band played. 

Then we'd sneak to a corner and he'd steal a kiss. We'd have to be careful or my chaperone may see. Oh yeah, I'm young in this vision too. So then he'd take my gloved hand and place a kiss upon it and say, "Milady, I must see you again.. I shall die if I do not.." 

As an avid historical romance reader, I have no doubt I have an incorrect image of how life would actually be living back then, but it doesn't hurt to dream.
