05/03/2007 Entry: "The Dream from Two Nights Ago"
It looks like I'm back in my patter of crazy dreams. For a while, it seems like I couldn't remember any dreams. Now, I'm getting all kinds! Well, I don't actually remember anything fromlast night, but here's the dream from the night before last.
I dreamt I was buying a "new" car. It was actually an old Mercedes Benz. It looked quite a bit like a Volkswagen Thing, but with a trunk. The trunk was covered with a tarp and a couple of clips to hold it in place. In the back seat area, there was an integrated car seat, with some shelving all around it. It was a baby changing station! So there was one seat in the back, and the car seat. Whomever was in the back seat could reach over, take the baby out of the car seat, and change a diaper, all while underway! Of course, it doesn't work for two kids who need car seats, and only one adult would fit in the back. Still, it was cool. And, I was test driving it.
Along the way, I met Chris and AJ Donlin. They both remarked how cool the car was. By that time, I had decided not to buy the car, so I offered it to them.
"Feel free to take it," I said. "The only thing you need to do is top off the tank."
"Well," said Chris "you've already used it some, and I don't want to pay for your gas."
"I drove it from the dealership to home, then from home to work, and then from work to here. I've driven eight miles, maybe." I said. I took out my wallet, and handed him a fiver. "This should more than cover the cost of the gas."
Chris reached over and pulled another five spot out of my wallet. "That oughta do it" he said.
I took both bills back. "I'm not paying $10 to pay for eight miles worth of gas in a car that gets 30 miles to the gallon. And, I'm doing you a favor by giving you the car here at your house. Instead, I'll top off the tank. You can pick the car up at the dealership, if you want it."
And I woke up.
