Okay, so I had some more weird dreams last night and this time I remember them. Well, two of them anyway. I’m going to describe them and if any of you are smart about these things, maybe you can help me figure out what they mean.
First dream: G and I were driving to Ry’s doctor appointment to get his next set of immunizations. We had to stop for gas or something, so we pulled into this parking lot. I got out and went to look for something behind a building and G stayed with the car. He did something to upset this guy, either bumped into him or touched his car or something, I can’t remember. Anyway, this guy got really crazy about it and he came over and started punching and kicking G, who was in the backseat, sitting with the baby. I see this happening so I run over and start hitting the guy and pulling him out of the car. I grabbed him and pushed him to the ground, yelling at him. Then we got in the car and started driving away. I realized I forgot Ry’s diaper bag behind the building, and suddenly there was this little girl with us, about 10 years old, a girl we knew. So she got out of the car and ran to the building to get the bag. And the guy started chasing her and we were screaming for her to hurry up and I was freaking out, so mad that I had forgotten the bag and worried for the girl, but she managed to get the bag and dove back in the car and we sped off, to Ry’s appointment. That was basically the end of the dream.
The 2nd dream is a little weirder and there are big parts I don’t remember, but what I recall is that I’m on this air/space ship with a bunch of people and we’re all on different levels of the ship. I’m on the top level, which is this sort of cramped little area that looks down at the next level through some metal beams. we’re flying through space and I’m looking out at the black sky littered with stars. It’s really cool and amazing. Then the ship lands and we all slip out from the top level and get out of the ship. We’ve landed onto this world that seems similar to earth, but is quite different. There is no blue sky, but we’re standing in this big long field and the grass is really green and fresh and I lay down the ground and start smelling the grass and rolling around and breathing in the clean air, ecstatic about how perfect and fresh it is. And everyone is getting off the ship (which is also sort of like a subway car) and looking around in amazement. Everything is much brighter and crisper in this world, even though the sky is still that black space with lots of stars all around us. We all eventually head off to the movie theater, lined up along the grassy field, along with some other buildings.
So there you go. That’s what I remember.
By the way, when I say I’m bored with loafe, it doesn’t mean that I’m DONE with loafe. Just that I’m bored with it right now. I get bored with TV as well, but I’m certainly not about to cast that off into the dark dark night, am I? No.
Speaking of TV, I hope you’re all watching Arrested Development. I didn’t think it was possible to live up to last season, but they are doing a bang-up job. If they cancel this show, I’m blaming it on you. Do you really want that burden? Being responsible for killing my happiness? I didn’t think so.
