Day 5: A letter to my dreams [20100916|13:07]

Hello Subconscious nanila.

I know you’re listening. Thank you for doing your thing quietly in the background when I’m sleeping and very rarely intruding on my conscious time. I hardly ever remember my dreams once I’m awake and I appreciate your consideration in not making me puzzle over your largely nonsensical interpretations of my troubles. I like the way you sort them out without bothering me too much.

I could have done without the one where the bloke’s parents’ house was located in a flooded mangrove swamp and I needed to rescue a stranded zebra. I discovered that the head of the Space & Atmospheric Physics group had stolen my wellies and was ambling into the distance, presumably to steal my zebra. I woke myself up by shaking my fist and shouting. That’s your quota of intrusive weirdness for the next month filled, mmkay.

love,
Conscious nanila

Did you wake the bloke up with all of your shouting?

Strangely, no. He must have been really tired because he's normally a much lighter sleeper than I am.

You woke up before the Dorset First Zebra Cavalry could come to the rescue of their missing mount, shouting 'It'll be alroight, loverrrr.'

Dorset: whatever you imagined, it wasn't this.
(Somehow I don't see the Tourist Board using that in their next ad campaign).

Ah, that would have been a fitting conclusion! Subconscious, take note: you are allowed to incorporate West Country dragoons into your offerings.
