Period in time

What period in History was your favorite and could see yourself living in? For me it would be the Italian renaissance.So much beauty in architecture, fashion etc. I always have loved deep burgundy long dresses with lots of gold jewellery, and plumage. In my previous life I must have been a noblewoman, the pope, or his chicken.

Whenever I watch a period movie and the actors are doing a pretty intense love scene with alot of kissing and breathing on each other's face,I can't help but think that in reality those people's teeth were so rotten they probably had little worms wriggling and squirming in and around them. Eeeeee!!!!, worm breath.

All the noblemen of that time no matter how sweaty of dirty would have impeccable teeth. Or no cigar!!!

from handling the black stallions all the day and helping the peasants. A bit sweaty is okay, we would order a Marble tub from our good friend Marie Antoinette. (same era?hehe)

During my teens I was fantazising about being an Earl's daughter and a dark tall handsome Duke would come for my hand.
I would be the only Noble woman who would clean myself on a regular basis.

You must not have been the chicken...I am pretty sure they eat spiders!

I would enjoy living in whatever historical era would have allowed me to spend all my days lying around, eating bon-bons, and being waited on hand and foot. Oh, yeah, and I would have to have the right to vote, too.
