The ‘Ladies, Imagine This’ meme is roasting a fictional American life

'I would actually want to die if my life came down to this.'

Ladies, imagine this. It’s 15 years from now. Your son is up to bat, your husband is the hot third base coach, your little girl is cheering on her big brother at the fence, and you are team mom—taking pictures with a fancy camera, and keeping the scorebook.

Does that sound like an idyllic life? Yes? No? Maybe? Well, it’s the one imagined by University of Louisiana Kappa Delta sorority sister Mallori Taylor in a tweet earlier this week, who all-caps proclaimed that it would be living her BEST life.

It will probably come to the surprise of no one that Mallori also tweeted a whole bunch about the royal wedding.

Mallori’s tweet went viral, retweeted and liked by tens of thousands of other young women, but not everyone was so impressed, as evidenced by the top comment on the tweet. “I would actually die if my life came down to this,” the person said.

The tweet really went viral however, when it was retweeted by @kbnoswag, who pointed out what a bizarre trend these types of tweets are setting by fantasizing of an actually pretty mediocre-sounding life.

And from there, others jumped in and began mocking Mallori’s tweet, and it wasn’t long before it became a full-blown meme—at least one going even more viral than the tweet that inspired it.

Many of the memes brutally roasted Mallori’s dream.




While others loosely described the plots of movies:

A few actually went back in time.

And then people just got weird with it.


While it’s certainly anyone’s prerogative to imagine a blissful life down the road, it’s also good to remember that life comes at you fast, and setting the bar too high may only lead to future disappointment. Or, you know, your husband banging Shelby from Sam’s Club.
