Dreamy Conversation

The somnambulist museum guard stood ready. Wait. Was that a gruff voice coming from behind the door?

“Don’t sweat it man. Toss only the famous ones in the bag. Hurry, for God’s sake! The damn tourists are coming and my beautiful girlfriend may snap out of her dream world and wonder why the guard suit.”

Then, a whiny wimpy voice:

“Yeah, well, take those stupid things and, after this, I’m cutting out…disappearing. Your she-man is…truthfully, missing a few screws (index finger jabbing his left temple) as she stands there; without flinching, it being 114 degree weather, in the shade!”

    Thanks for your visit. And for teaching me a new word dealing with sleep.
    This is a very interesting and clever take on the prompt!

    I know a few folks that talk in their sleep…but none to go so far as walk into a great story or a robbery!

    I wonder which dreams got stolen. Where they insured? A nice twist of a story, very well written and with enough depth (despite the limitation of 100 words) to make you ponder.

      This dreamy robbery can make the imagination go stir crazy…I hope the sleeping guard realizes soon what the two mischievous thieves are doing behind her back. 😊
      You made my Saturday evening complete – such kind words. Thanks, Otto.

    Had to read it a few times to get it, but when I did, I laughed out loud especially when I looked at the picture again. You are one unique character, Sunshine. Love your writing. {{{Hugs]}} Kozo
