So I told Ellie this morning at breakfast that I'd like to draw one of my dreams.
So she drew it.
Then I drew it.
She has heard this dream before.
It is pretty well known around here.
And with friends.
And maybe a few people who could care less
but we told anyway.
I think I will show the pictures first to see what you can deduce from them.
We love that game.
Such a great outlet for our creativity.
And someone usually laughs until they cry.
Or wets their pants.
|Here is my pic. I know, I am not the artist in the family. Those are my hands not catcher's mitts.|
Can you tell what is going on?
Monte has no arms.
More specifically, he has no arms in a dress shirt that has had the sleeves pinned up.
And I am mad.
Yes, I am mad about the no arms thing.
Like, "So you are just NOT going to have arms now," kind of mad.
|Again, with the technical problems--sorry! This is my attempt at a car.|
A bit Fred Flintstonish, I know.
Do you feel like you are in therapy?
Do you feel like now you need therapy?
In all my madness at Monte having no arms
keep in mind I NEVER, NOT ONCE asked him how his no-arms situation came to be.
I told him scornfully,
"I am NOT taking you to work!"
So when I had this dream, I woke up all of a sudden in the breathy gaspy way people do when they have just come out of a nightmare.
It woke Monte up
(or maybe I shook him awake, I can't remember).
When I recounted the dream to him, he squeezed me into a hug,
"Aww, I couldn't hug you if I didn't have arms."
I know. A real sweetheart.
But I was still mad.
"Seriously, I would NOT take you to work everyday. What a pain!"
I know. I am so NOT a sweetheart.
Did I mention I was about Day 3 into a no-sugar diet?
Does that help you in your judgement of me a little teensy bit?
I am better with candy corn.
Or jelly beans.
Here is another dream I had fairly recently:
|Does your neck hurt yet? Don't say anything about my hippo.|
Yes, Ellie and I were on a jet ski and there was a hippo chasing us. I was really scared.
(Even though I, for some strange reason, drew a smile on myself in the picture).
I was scared because during one of Ellie's "Fun Facts'" at dinner, she told us that a hippo could snap an alligator in half with the strength of its jaws.
So I woke up Monte with that one too.
And I told Carisa about it.
So she sent me this.
"Remind you of anything? I think his jet ski stalled."
It made me laugh and gave me the shudder shakes a little too.
Check out the meanish look in that hippo's eyes!
So now I want to see someone else's dreams in pictures.
Try it and send them to me!
