Any Good Dreams Lately?

Do you remember your dreams?  Normally I forget mine before my feet hit the floor in the morning but yesterday I had one that I remembered.  This is it in a nutshell -

My dream hotel. 
I was having trouble getting to work. Late. (So far, nothing unusual about this as our metro system stalls 3 times a week for no particular reason other than to make me look bad).

Before arriving at the office, I stop at some restaurant and what do you know – it’s a party – for me! My husband Joe is there and people I used to work with years ago. Turns out they're giving me a present for years of service. Excellent! I love presents! Then, they hand me a folder with tickets to a vague location marked "The Middle East". Huh? My boss from years ago gives a speech saying they know I’ve always wanted to go there and this room full of people are all excited about the great gift and wait for me to respond.

“I’m speechless” I say “I don’t know how to thank you.”

This was true.

Joe looked at me mouthing “Middle East? For our vacation”?

Next, I was given an envelope with $20,000 in it. Is this spending money or do I have to use it to pay for the tickets? If we’re paying for the trip with this cash, we’re heading for France. We can just say we got on the wrong plane. What the hell.
Our guide looked pretty much
like this except not as friendly.
Oh, right, Pancho Villa.

Then (this was a long dream), Joe and I are in our "Middle East" hotel trying to figure out a way to leave. The “Middle East” was a cross between a border town in Mexico and Harlem in this dream. Some guide was telling us to stay out of the water, and stick close to the airport.  He was scary.

ANYWAY…..I looked up a dream dictionary on line and this is what I discovered:

I'm pretty sure it all has to do with reading the news on my iPod before going to sleep and having unhealthy snacks late at night.  I'll experiment and see if  listening to Aznavour and eating French toast gets me to Paris instead!
