Perchance to Dream

I was quite perplexed by a dream I had last night. At the beginning of the dream I saw two hippopotamuses wearing tutus and swing dancing to the Benny Goodman song, “Sing, Sing, Sing.”

It was fascinating. Until my fun dream turned into a nightmare.

The happy, swing-dancing hippos suddenly transformed into a group of living mops who carried buckets and buckets of water and dumped them all onto the floor, turning my house into complete disarray.

I woke up in a sweat, with a twinge of regret. My wife warned me when we were watching Disney’s classic animated movie “Fantasia” last night that eating a pastrami sandwich right before bedtime would give me indigestion. I think she jinxed me.

    It is such a great movie and I think I had some dreams where I was stuck in that fantasy land also.

    Definitely the sandwich before bedtime is the culprit

    I’m guessing you had this movie playing for your grandchildren. Which also reminds me, did you take your dog along?

      No. Our daughter came over to our house and pet sat for us.
