I have had all sorts of trouble getting started today, but the good news is my work for the Russell County News is all done. Now I get a little less than 24 hours of down time before I have to drive to Smith Center.
I had two of the strangest dreams this morning.
The first found me in a library, and of all things, I was trying to play Buzztime trivia. Who ever heard of playing Buzztime in a library? But here I was, and I was being mercilessly harrassed by a large group who would not shut up and leave me alone. I screamed at them twice to shut up, and that got me in big trouble. The library staff was very angry, and while they thought of my punishment, they forced me to go for a ride with Jon Gruden, the former coach of the Raiders and Buccaneers who is now the color analyst for ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
Gruden was driving this sophisticated SUV with four-wheel drive and an instrument panel high above the windshield. We discussed Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and Michael Sam during the ride, and Gruden made a couple of illegal U-turns. When we got back to the library, I found out I was banned for 90 days and I would never be allowed to play Buzztime there again.
The second dream involved the one and only Elizabeth Psenski. I kept seeing her out and about town, not at Buffalo Wild Wings, and I kept wondering why she didn’t want to talk to me. I got so upset my mother was called in, and we went to see a psychiatrist and a doctor. I also recall winning several Care Bears dolls in a claw machine. I ran into Elizabeth again, and I told her I really wanted to go with her, but she said no.
I then found myself trying to escape a parking garage with Olivia Benson and Don Cragen from Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. Several of the entrances were locked,, but all of a sudden, a ladder appeared to get us fro top to bottom. No way I was doing that, me being afraid of heights.
When I woke up, I knew it was a bad dream. I know Elizabeth would never blow me off like that.
