Limerick – Dreams

Beware of living your dreams
It isn’t quite what it seems…
When you’re struggling to run
From a currant bun
And flying custard creams!


For an insight into my dreams – a couple of days ago, my wife woke me, and the first thing I said was, “why don’t more sausages have cheese in them?”…

  1. Flying custard creams and sausages with cheese… thank goodness I have already had my hot cereal this morning, else I’d be in the kitchen rummaging about for other yummies…..

  2. You certainly know how to make somebody laugh with these limerick dreams, Al. Custard Creams would probably hurt, but I’m not so sure about currant buns, unless they are cross and become hot-crossed buns!. ?

    1. Ha ha! Count yourself lucky I couldn’t squeeze in the dream about turning up late for your exams… and realising that you’re stark naked! (Not just me, right?) 🙂

        1. That was a big recurring dream for me. That, and the sensation of trying to run somewhere, but despite all my effort I wasn’t actually moving… Funny that I’ve not had that one again recently, with everything else going on offline!

          1. Yes, maybe it’s because, no matter what you may think, you ARE actually moving forward. Even if you don’t realise it. This blog is but a first step 🙂

  3. Well, the good news is that you made it into my reader, so I guess the import of followers worked 🙂

    I’ve been having the strangest dreams lately. It’s probably because I have two things on my mind, my studies and my lover. Yep. They mix in my dreams in weird ways. Luckily for all of you, I don’t remember half of them!

    1. Let’s hope cheesy sausages don’t get thrown into that mix too!

      Yeah I checked earlier to make sure this would come up in the reader. The bit I’m not sure about is whether that’ll work for future subscribers, which may impact on people signing up here. One way to find out, I guess…

      1. Yes, exactly, only one way to find out 🙂

        As for sausages… you know I like a juicy sausage, so I wouldn’t be surprised they make it into my dreams 😉

  4. Excuse me a moment while I rush to the kitchen! I think this is brilliant, and the comments make it even brillianter. (I’m allowed to make up words, my shrink said so!)
