Me: I was saving my game in Oblivion to switch over to watching "Jarhead" and the thought came to me that I had spent the morning writing, the afternoon playing video games while eating chips and drinking soda in and around doing laundry in my own house while looking at the new Michael Whelan print I just had framed... I am living the life I dreamed of as a kid.
Friend: So basically, you are in the process of living happily ever after. Cool.
Me: Yeah. Weird, huh?
Friend: Nice that you're aware of it, I guess.
Me: I think so. "The process of living happily ever after..."
Friend: Now you need to dream up a new life for yourself twenty years down the road. And see if you hit that too. Or maybe that life is the same as this one.
Me: It's pretty much the same... but a guy on the couch egging me on as I tackle an Oblivion gate. Then, he answers the phone, "Hey Honey! You just won the Philip K. Dick award" "Again? Cool beans."
Me: Yeah. That would be pretty sweet. I like it.
