Lamont and Dude Live Happily Ever After

Daily Prompt Happily Ever After “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?


“Right on.”


“Seriously. You went on TV and everything, but they still think…”

“I know. Thing is, none of them seem aware of how many times they’ve been around. Not that I remember most of them, but once in a while.”

“Same here.”

“There is no ‘happily ever after’. There’s ‘happy enough for now’.”

“Maybe that’s what this prompt is getting at.”

“Then why ‘ever after’? I’m telling you, Dude, they think that their death will be the end, my friend.”

“I saw what you did. Next you’re going to say ‘The future is uncertain and the end is always near’, right?”

“I was thinking that. Absolutely true and untrue on a cosmic scale. Certain aspects of every future are forgone conclusions. Others? No. There are surprises aplenty.”

“Are you living happily for now then, Lamont?”

“Absolutely, but I don’t want to tempt fate. And I know that ‘happily ever after’ isn’t going to be continual bliss. Human’s aren’t happy that way.”
