The Rating Game

Saturday Centus has rolled around once more, and Jenny's write-happy readers are living the dream with her new prompt, which (coincidentally) is "I'm living the dream, man." No more than 100 words can be used to develop this *sigh* totally dreamy theme, and I have used considerably fewer. The prompt, as always, is in red.

Rating the Dream

©2012 Susan Noyes Anderson


I’m living the dream, man, a bad one.

Who knew? I expected a rad one.

But R(ad)’s not the rating…

It’s X-cruciating.

A nightmare, if ever I had one!

hey you, ok, hope that this isn't a true story about an X-ray that showed something it shouldn't have. Tell me I'm reading too much into it and I should just be laughing! xo

Sue said...

You should just be laughing, Anita. No bad news here.

Sounds like you are taking Vit E like I am. Ha! When I take my vit E it helps my memory so much that I remember my dreams.

i totally thought you were going to say you saw hunger games and thought it should be R for violence just based off of your title and i had just read jen's post on how she wasn't letting some of her kids see it.

Anna M said...

You are rated R(ad) in my book.

Clear, clever, concise...... and I saw something unintended(?): RX. So the optimist in me wanted the prescription for the cure: God. :-)

Do we know how Todd did last Friday yet?

And are you seeing progress in your Easter production? Keeping you both in my prayers. :-)
