SoCS — The Key to Success

“What do you think is the key to success?” she asked.

“The key to success is definitely preparedness,” he answered.

“Nope,” she said.

“No?” he said. “Okay, the key to success is knowledge.”


“The key to success is patience.”


“The key to success is perseverance.”


“The key to success is discipline.”


“The key to success is persistance.”


“The key to success is attitude.”






“Oh for crissake” he said. “What the hell, then, do you think the key to success is?”

“I know what the key to success is,” she said.

“Fine,” he said. “The suspense is killing me. What is the key to success?”

“It’s love,” she said. “Love is the key to success. Now how about you and I go to the bedroom and make success?”

Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, where we are asked to use the word “key.”
