WordPress Daily Prompt: Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)

What is the best dream you’ve ever had? Recount it for us in all its ethereal glory. If no dream stands out in your memory, recount your worst nightmare. Leave no frightening detail out. 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us IMAGINARY.


“I would like to thank you all for this unexpected prize. I really did not expect to be honoured. There are so many others in this world of Blog that write daily, the sweat pouring from their fingertips at the computer and now I have won the first prize. This was a surprise, an honour, something I least expected. Did I deserve this I ask myself? Of course: there are many others that write day for day in the hope of achieving this prize, but the most talented win at the end.

Is this a dream? Pinch me to see if I am awake. I would like to thank my publishers for the efforts involved in suggesting a Daily Prompt. It is not an easy job and I realise there are times when I might even sound ungrateful, impatient, displeased, but this is the shadow side of 150 shades of blogging life.

You cannot please all of the bloggers all of the time, but you can please a special blogger that has sacrificed an hour of her time daily to achieve this well deserved  hard earned achievement.

(Pause for applause, cheers and banners showing “Up with Angloswiss. We love you.”)

There are times in the life of a Blogger when the genius of the blogging effort seems to go unnoticed. Times when the thought occurs, is it really worth the while to endure the hardships of finding a new idea inspired by the powers behind the scenes of the blogging organisation? My advice is do not despair, where there is a blogging will there is a successful path and for such a gifted blogger as myself, the reward suits the efforts involved.

(More claps, cheers and stamping of feet)

At this moment I would like to spare a thought to those whose success slipped out of their fingers in obtaining this award. One of my rivals blogging friends is now recovering in hospital from an accident. It seems she was pushed fell whilst crossing the road and hit by a passing car. Another auspicious blogger fell into the local river and narrowly escaped a drowning fate. They cannot be here today, but I hope are watching the broadcast on the television and at least mentally taking part, if not physically.

At this point I would like to thank Mr. Swiss who avoids listening to his favourite music whilst my creative ideas are developing during my blog writes out of respect for my genial talents. I would also like to thank the faithful 2,478 followers, disciples who spend hours reading my first class blogs day for day, with untiring patience and liking or even passing a comment. These are not just statistics, but readers who have realised my qualities efforts in the blogging world. I thank you all.

(Clapping cheering and a standing ovation) and then I awake. It was all a figment of the imagination? Just a dream, not true?

I was thinking also of writing a nightmare, but I just could not bring myself to fail in the task of being Blogger of the Year and I did not want to disappoint my public.

“What did you say Mr. Swiss? You think I have overdone it again.” It is not easy being genius, but after all it was just a dream. Or was it?
