I'm Living The Dream, Man

I'm Living The Dream, Man - Saturday Centus

       I've finally done it. I'm living the dream, man...or is it really reality?  Now that I've "got it all," it seems as if everything that came before was just a dream.  No babies,  no house, only the life of  a wanderer, with too many parties and nothing of consequence.  When I look back, it feels like all those previous chapters in my life were just a movie, starring someone else. Someone almost like me, but not quite. Today I'm living the dream, but for the first time in my life, it feels like I'm really awake. Totally awake, man.

I'm participating in Saturday Centus, a writing activity where a five word prompt is given, and each writer must write exactly 100 words, including the prompt.

The rules are to keep it PG, no splitting of the prompt , play nicely, and visit the other entries. Any style or genre of writing is allowed.


  1. I think the best dreams are those that have you wide awake and in the moment! Nicely done!

  2. Thank you, I enjoyed writing it!

  3. Some good thoughts here. I agree with Anita's comment too.
    Best wishes,
    Anna's SC wk 99 - 'Robert reads a letter'

  4. I really like the aspect of being totally awake while dreaming. Nice.

    PS Hi and nice to meet you through the Centus.

  5. Hey, M.M.!! Welcome to Saturday Centus! I really like your post! I give you an A+!!!

  6. Oh yes, great stuff. What better way to capture an entire dream then to be fully up for it!

    Wow! Angie I am truly amazed! Just love your blog! Great work my dear! Really A+++! :)

  8. Thank you very much everyone :)

  9. A great description of your waking dream. Very nice.

  10. It's nice to have all those things behind you, isn't it!

    When you get to old age the dream only comes intermittantly because a lot of interference. These are from health issues, deaths of friends and relatives, lack of 'comfortable' income, etc.

    1. That was a nice 100 words, forgot to say that.

  11. Great job! I think many of us look back on our lives and feel like parts of it at least were more dreamlike than real. I like your last line, how it reflects the first part, but with reality.

    If you have time, here is mine:

  12. I loved this, man.

    That made me smile!

    But your words made me think.

    What a thought provoking little story.

    Thank you for sharing it.

  13. Thanks, man. I'm looking forward to working on a new Saturday Centus this weekend, after missing the last couple with holiday and Spring Break activites!
