I Have a Dream

OK, so I HAD a dream, past tense. Actually it was the night before last, but it has taken me this long to wrap my brain around the weirdness of it. Brent and I were on another cruise with our friends who went with us to Ensenada. This time we were cruising to . . .um, Paris. That's some tricky navigation right there. When we got to Paris it was raining and Brent kept apologizing for "ruining everything", as if he had made it rain. As if a little rain could ruin a cruise to Paris! We were all trying to decide what we wanted to do that day. Everyone had wanted to climb the rock wall, but the rain made that idea less than fun. I suggested (passive-aggressively, as usual) that if there was nothing else to do maybe we could get off the boat and go see the Eiffel Tower. No one was really in to that idea. It was raining, of course, and there would be too many tourists, and we'd have to wait in line forever to go up to the top, and it really wasn't that cool anyway. I suggested that maybe we could just go somewhere NEAR the Eiffel Tower and have a baguette and some hot chocolate in a little cafe. The rain, in my dream, was absolutely, perfectly French and would be but little bother to us. Again my idea was poo-pooed and everyone decided to just go back to our cabins and play Guitar Hero. And that is the last I saw of Paris. What does it all mean?! Maybe Brent and my friends are holding me back from doing what I really want in life. Except that they are always the ones looking for opportunities for me to use my skills and supporting me in pursuing my dreams. Unless . . . what I really want in life is to do NOTHING and they are FORCING all this WORK upon me. Whatever! I think dreams are such a funny jumble of memories and snippets of what's going on in life at the moment. The unfettered, sleeping brain is a wacky thing. (You may recall my dream a while ago about Rosie O'Donnell and Christopher Lowell teaching at my high school . . . Wacky.)
