Once again, I ate peas.

But that isn't the subject of this post.

Last night I had a dream that I wrote a play. It was a slap-stick comedy sort of play to be performed at some type of theme park (this is the third dream this week, btw, that a theme park was in my dreams - although this time it seemed to be Knotsberryfarmish rather than Seaworldish). In this play, the type that might be performed by Jr. High students in drama class, I was the main character.

I can't recall what the play was about exactly, but I do remember that in the last scene as I stood alone on the stage that the janitor character was supposed to join me on stage. In my dream, this actor was played by a Grey Panicka, the doofus ex-husband of childhood friend, Glory Panicka. I was worried that Grey might not be able to deliver the lines correctly - and that the scene did not take into account his weakness: reading. Luckily, actor Tom Hanks took a few minutes to help me re-write the scene in order to guarantee loads of laughs even if Gray completely messed up the dialog. Just in case, I wrote out the dialog on a piece of paper, and had Grey read from it on stage.

In any event, the play was a hit, and Grey reading his script right there on stage was hilarious.

And then I woke up.

Laughs! I love this! Sounds like you're a lucid dreamer. I am too.

People tell me all the time I should get my weird dreams analyzed. I think I'd rather NOT know what my brain is trying to tell me while I slumber.

Yes, my dreams are vivid, detailed, and always in color. Some of these dreams seem so real that I will remember them for decades - even the nonsense dreams in which the likes of Tom Hanks appears. ha ha

Maybe that's why I like to write (and perhaps it is the same with you?) because there is a wealth of material hidden in my mind, only to be unleashed as I sleep.

Yeah, no need to have the fact that I'm a little odd confirmed by having my dreams analyzed!
