calling all dream interpreters

Last night I had one of the strangest dreams I can remember, I mean really whack (that word alone makes me nostalgic for the 90s). Here it is…

I was in a large auditorium, there’s a good chance it was my high school auditorium, but at one point it was outside in a log-cabin-type pavilion with picnic tables. You know, dream venues are kind of fluid. In this morphing locale I was participating in some kind of variety show by acting in a skit. In this theatrical wonder I was playing the part of Rush Limbaugh, but my vocal impersonation was of Rodney Dangerfield and I kept trying to crack bad jokes. I would start in the aisles, then make my way to a Letterman-esqe set where I took a seat and entertained the audience with a few one-liners (though the night of the second performance no one was laughing and we had to start over). Then it gets even more weird, if that’s possible, my guest came on the stage and took a seat–none other than Louis Pasteur, the 19th century scientist! Comedian that I was, my big joke was to act like I thought he was Santa Claus, which enfuriated him and had the crowd in stitches.

So there you have it, I think I need a brain scan.

  1. I seem to recall scientific research that proved Louis Pasteur had absolutely no sense of humor, but I could have dreamed that…

  2. Whack is back. My students use it all the time, and they know what’s down.

  3. Freud saw all dreams as ‘wish fulfillment’, albeit often disguised in symbolic images. Could it be you have a desire to destroy science with sarcasm??

  4. Maybe you secretly hate milk and wish it was egg nog.

  5. First let me say I am thrilled that whack is back. I love that word and am really happy that I can use it without automatically dating myself (not going out on a date with myself, but letting people know how old I am). That said, thanks for the input, I feel like I can rest easy with an understanding of this important dream.

  6. I love this blog 🙂

    the dream just slays me… that’s it – I’m going to blog now.. I need to have a forum for such ‘sharing’ 🙂

    Santa is one of my alternate realties btw… I excitedly report that I have my own red suit – but more importantly, this year I had to pad the belly – which is good…

    With the gift of randomness…

    btw.. I had the same apprehensions about that conference but it turned out to be one of the best I’ve ever been to! I’ll use “Ron Blue”‘s decision making grid from now on! of course the chair were hard… but I’m just saying…

  7. PB,

    Glad you liked the conference.
