I would love to take a class sometime that tells you why you dream weird stuff and how your mind can take two or three completely unrelated people or events and smash them together in your head while you sleep. Last night I dreamt that I was stage managing a benefit concert in Europe. We were flying to London, then making a connection to wherever we were going. There were cruise ships docked at the airport, so I decided to check them out during our layover. Well, I ended up jumping into the water (if you know me well, you know I would never do this) and swimming with giant sea turtles and some kind of prehistoric dolphins with feet. That is, until the pilot of my plane told me there were snakes in the water, so I got out. We eventually got to our hotel, which looked like a combo casino/Holiday Inn, where I was not allowed to drop off my stuff or select my suite until I went to rehearsal. When I walked into the room where we were rehearsing, I saw Betty White, Bea Arthur and Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez (of TLC) sitting on a wicker couch looking at sheet music. Our music director was there and they proceeded to rehearse a rousing rendition of "Waterfalls" that they were going to perform in the concert. Fortunately, God had mercy on me about halfway through the second verse and I woke up.
I think the moral of this story is that I should stop watching nature shows right before bed and I should put a couple of seasons of The Golden Girls on my Netflix list.
