Happy Place


I was sitting at home in my mother’s house. Up on the big brown couch in the front room drinking coffee and everything was exactly as it should be. We were talking with each other about nothing important and finally I told her I was so very tired. Like I had never been before. I was just so mentally strained I wanted to take a day off from everything and just relax. She told me not to worry, that she would call the school house and let them know I needed a personal day. My cat Melon who had been sitting across the couch from me waddled over and started purring on my lap and when I looked down to pet her I realized I was in a dream. I had just enough time to look up at my mother and scream “NO!!” before I was sucked out into nothingness and woke up.
