Monday Musings (On Dreaming)
I had quite the odd dream last night that stayed with me long after I awoke. My friend Robin and I were staying at a hotel in Florida (which is odd, because Robin doesn't travel by air). We got into the elevator to go to the pool and the elevator got stuck. Being the only two in the box, we joked and laughed and knew that at some point we would be extricated. And indeed we were. When we stepped out, however, the hotel was completely rearranged and we had a hell of a time finding our rooms. Half naked in our swim suits, with our towels, every place we went just seemed to get us more confused and lost. People were looking at us a little bit strangely.
Turns out, we had been stuck in this elevator for nineteen years! We called home, to notify family we were okay, and people were dumb struck. They figured we'd died all those years ago. Then, the looks on their faces when reunited: utter shock. We were frozen in time while they had all aged appropriately. Some strange catastrophe had occurred on earth, and most people had deathly white faces and their eyes looked to be glazed with cataracts. We had, by a simple twist of fate, escaped this world wide disaster.
What an odd and eerie dream.
