I confuse myself sometimes.
I had this long, fascinating dream Thursday night -- complete with a battle between good and evil for power over a community, battles with wands and curses, Harry Potter style -- and I wrote it all down into the database I keep for dreams.
BAGMAN: "A little obsessive compulsive, maybe?"
But Friday was the shootout so I thought maybe I'd post it over the weekend...
...but by Saturday I figured it would be boring. Dreams have incredible interest to the dreamer, which may be why he or she dreams them. But they almost always fall flat in the telling.
BUTLER: "So why don't you talk about dreams in general? How you learned to remember them? How you approach them? Why you keep the database that Bagman makes fun of?
...so I thought about talking about dreams in general....wait a minute, Butler just said that, didn't he?
But then last night, lying awake in bed for some reason, I was thinking about...well...sex.
BAGMAN: "NOW WE'RE TALKING!!!!!"
BUTLER: "Shut up, Bags! Dream theory is much more interesting."
...Dang it! Sometimes I can't get a word in edgewise! What I was thinking about was the different things that go through people's heads in the middle of having sex. For example: "Gosh, I hope my partner thinks I'm not an idiot." Or another example: "Is it going to happen soon or am I going to have to fake it." Or: "Damn, I forgot to set the DVD to tape my favorite show and it's coming on in ten minutes."
By the time I fell asleep, I had a list of 20 or so. Oddly enough, when I woke up, I didn't remember any dreams at all and only remembered about five of the 20...
BAGMAN: "I can come up with some!!!"
And besides, I try to keep this blog PG-13 although it sometimes get to R and I don't want to risk Triple-X....hmmm. What to do? What to do?
BUTLER: "Write about your approach to dreaming!"
BAGMAN: "NO!! Write about what people think about during sex!!!"
I think I'll actually go have a bowl of cereal, a second cup of coffee, and figure the dilemma out later...
