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.
