How people imagining their best future lives has become a brilliant meme
A templated tweet? Who can resist?
We all like to daydream about the future and this new meme is the perfect way for people to share what their best future life looks like.
Twitter user Mallori Taylor started it off when she tweeted about how she imagined her life to be in 2033.
LADIES imagine this, it’s 15 years from now—your son is up to bat, your husband is the hot 3rd base coach, your little girl is cheering on her big brother at the fence,&you are team mom, taking pics with a fancy camera,&keeping the scorebook— Mallori Taylor (@mallorii_alysee) May 20, 2018
THAT WOULD BE LIVING MY BEST LIFE
Her tweet format, which began “Ladies, imagine this” and ended “that would be living my best life”, provided the perfect template for people to reveal their own versions of a life well lived.
Others saw it as a chance to express their life with a sprinkling of Hollywood or pop culture.
Here are 10 of the very best…
1. The perfect life is one with Stuart Little.

LADIES imagine this,— issy (@bIadejogger) May 23, 2018
You just turned 30, and you’re feeling flirty and thriving. You have a respected job at your dream magazine and you’re best friends with the popular girl from school. You’ve woken up in a strange apartment though, with no parents, last night you were 13
10. This life would be perfect.
Ladies, imagine this. It’s 15 years from now and you’re relaxing in a tree with your man. He spent all day eating and so have you. You finish off yet another shoot of bamboo. You are a Red Panda. Life is good— Brendan (@BrendanW73) May 23, 2018
Twitter is famous for taking a template and providing hilarious memes in a similar format.
You might remember such gems as The Angry American Chopper meme…

Or the “you should have half of your salary saved by aged 35”, which made the rounds this week.
By age 35 you should run into friends and say "WE SHOULD HANG OUT SOON!" twice a week. You will never hang out. You'll just scream this at each other until one of you dies.— Luke Trayser (@trukelayser) May 20, 2018
