IF YOU SEE THE CHINESE GUY,
4 November 2009
I have said for years that one of my big disappointments is that I don't dream. My sleeping habits have been so poor for so long that I know that either I don't get deeply enough asleep to dream, or I don't remember my dreams. In any event, I have always felt that I was missing out on some fun stuff.
Last night I woke up at 2 a.m. This wasn't the dogs' fault this time, it was the fault of my bladder. I fully expected to go right back to sleep, as I did the night before, but I didn't. The dogs were very cooperative and no problem at all, but I just simply could not go back to sleep.
I tried watching a movie that I knew well, figuring I would doze off, but I didn't. I finally got up at 5 a.m. and did some stuff on the computer for awhile, but around 5:30 was feeling sleepy, so I decided to try getting a little sleep again.
Walt came downstairs around 6:30 and the noise of the dogs greeting him woke me up, so my dream took place within an hour and it is so crystal clear in my mind (and since I so rarely dream!), I decided to share it.
I was depressed and decided to go for a drive. I was driving a car
along a path that got more and more narrow until it finally abruptly disappeared and the
car rolled off and into water. The car was immersed and I had two things that I needed to
do--I had to get Ned (who somehow was strapped in the back seat) and my purse (with my
camera in it) out quickly. I managed to get out of the car and dove down under the water
to unstrap Ned and get him out, and I grabbed my purse and tossed it up on a rock nearby
(miraculously it was still dry inside). The car and I were stuck in the water when a
Chinese guy came down to the edge, very angry with me because apparently the water was in
the middle of his restaurant and he kept telling me that I had to get out because I was on
private property. I kept trying to explain that I had had an auto accident but he just
yelled that he didn't care, I was on his private property and I needed to get out.
I was still trying to get back to AAA when I realized that the nubby
rubber cover to my cell phone was broken and so I was also trying to find a new cover for
the phone and trying to call the number of the company, which was printed on the rubber
Today is "National Sandwich Day," so I needed a sandwich
for my Flickr
Project. Nugget Market has changed their sandwich menu, which made me sad
because they no longer have a roast lamb sandwich, but I was able to get a pretty tasty
sandwich with roast beef, swiss cheese, onion and tomato on ciabatta bread with creamy
