you can kiss me if you wanna


(Gary Rith in 1984)















I forgot to mention it yesterday, but I dreamt that my pal Gord's son fell through the ice BUT he was OK. They live in the Great White North, and walking on ice is common in ultra-cold winter days, but I better warn Gord that his flaky friend had a dream....
but that's not my point. I do dream a lot, and usually they keep me entertained. No hamsters last night.
When the alarm went off, this is what I had been dreaming.
I was visiting college not long after graduating. I visited the architectural design studios where I had been a not very distinguished student (you had to study 2 things intensively, and for me it was architecture and ceramics, and we know where THAT got me). There were quite a few people there I knew, and I was sitting at a drafting table and Annie, who looked like and was Charlize Theron in my dream, although come to think of it, Annie could have been Charlize's twin, sat next to me. She tells me:
"you can kiss me if you wanna"
and I am like,
"no no, you are more beautiful than a statue, but I cannot" and I really didn't know why I could not, I mean I was a young unattached guy, but then she crawls onto my lap and is holding my head and purring in my ear and I tell her
"you know, I never failed any classes here and I graduated on time, so you know, I was pretty successful" and Charlize/Annie who is being awfully frisky on my lap in public tells me
"it took me over ten years to graduate"
and then my alarm went off AND I realized, oh of course I couldn't kiss Charlize/Annie, I am an old happily married guy.

I'm thinking that purring might have been one of those kitties around there. ;-)

Well, weren't you cute as a bug in 1984??

We covered ice safety last night at Cubs, Gary. We're doing the winter cubbing badge with the whole pack at the moment. :-)

I can't get past the argyle sweater vest. Hawt.

Does dear Maude know you dream about Charlize Theron? Because Tom is not allowed to dream about her. On the other hand, I am allowed to dream about Johnny Depp. Totally not fair. Heh.

That reminds me of a college story...


... explaining the finer details of Plank's constant when this beautiful ballerina, who unbeknown to me was also my physics professors daughter, grabs my head and kissed me...

I wonder if Denis remembers Annie somethig-or-other from Georgia? She had one of those totally smooth as chocolate accents, plus she looked like Charlize Theron. Havn't thought of her in 25 years. Let's go on over to facebook and see what we can find....
Lynda, I am a million times cuter now than in the 80s, and getting CUTER every year. I am sure of it.

Holy cr@p I did find her on facebook! I wondered if she was living in a ranch house in a suburb with her 7 children.
NOPE. That's all I can say.

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

Triple holy cr@p! She has a blog too!
That's enough. Let's just say she is super-succesful plus has a super-succesful husband and daughter, and she is now built like a truck.
No. That last part isn't true.

I'll kiss her for you. ;-)

I'm glad we've moved past Kirsten Dunst and on to much hotter babes here. We can totally agree on Charlize Theron.

And women who look like Charlize.
The fact is, though, my wife is the hottest thang going, mmm mmmm.
btw, my former classmate's blog? not that I would show it to you, but it is b-o-r-i-n-g. Not trashy and titilating like this blog.

Aleta said...

You definitely have some interesting dreams. You're going to make me look them up and see what they mean now... Lol.

Miss Heather said...

You are such a little hottie! I can't handle how cute you are!!

And I don't know many men who HAVEN'T dreamed about Charlize at one time or another. You're normal!! At least you didn't sex her up!!

See, that was the point. I said no no no.....

Temptation is difficult to deal with sometimes. My last post dealt with it.
