The Daily Prompt.
Missive : “And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?
What will it take for me to live happily ever after? I’m not supposing I’ll be living the happily ever after you read about in romance novels. Think I’m a tad long in the tooth to trust a rake. Not a virgin to be gently exposed to the wonders of love-making. Know what works for me – might just down the poor guy with my instructions. Already have a house – don’t need the Duke of Hertfordshire’s mansion – I mean, what with the cost of labour so horrendously expensive these days, who’s going to clean it? And what will the Grand Dowager think of this usurper trying to steal her grand son from the fold?
I might have to settle for a cool job and a cooler car.
Think I can be quite happy with my zippy red little number, iPad in the bag, tunes on the wireless and a job decent enough to pay for it all. It is, after all, the simple pleasures in life that really makes it worth living, not so?
Then again, if there’s a man out there with enough balls to handle me, all my endless crap and all my tins, I’ll not say no
Oh, and before I forget. It will definitely make me happy if we got rid of the current government and if my two boys are also able to be happy with their lives.
I think that should just about do it.
Or should I go all metaphysical and choose to be content with myself, serene in the knowledge that I am unique and loved – well, I know all this, and I am already, mostly, content with myself. Time for some tangible evidence of success methinks!
Long days and pleasant nights to all. And do enjoy the tune…
