In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Just a Dream.”
I had a really rough week.Friday evening seemed like a welcome relief. I poured myself a drink, lay on the couch dreaming about what’s waiting for me at workwork on Monday.. Dumbest thing to think of but when you have a rough week at a job that you have to do.. In the midst of a recession..its expected. Work becomes the source of your biggest misery, but the fact that you have a job when millions don’t also makes you feel grateful to have that misery.
Speaking of dreams, in a nightmarish mood, the three recurring nightmares for me are:
1. Being chased by lions.
2. I fail in an exam.
3. I am running late for something that I absolutely cannot miss.
I dozed off on my couch.. The familiar lion came by to say hello.. It didn’t scare me as much today.. Donno why.. Had I stayed with him long enough, I could have sworevthat he purred and not roared..familiarity with the beast breeds confidence, I guess.
I walk past the lion to a news stand and the headline on the newspaper read “School board cancels all exams!”
Delighted, I walk to my scheduled appointment.. Time check..15 minutes to go before my appointment. I say to myself.. Boy, somebody is taking my nightmares and shredding them..
I browse the magazine, waiting for the nurse to arrive. She does and takes me through the hallway and instead of the usual “Dr. XYZ will see you in room … “.. She said, pick a door and pick a doctor..
I chose the corner room and the prettiest doctor.. I walk up to the room, open the door and..
Another nurse hands me a pill saying ” boy, you are tripping”.. You are a week late to your appointment, your test results are horribly wrong and getting hair extensions for your cat does not make him a lion “..
