More random mental activity from my somnolent state…or is it random?
End of the World Coming:
[I have been watching Waterworld (low expectations) while I exercise, so perhaps that is the source of my apocalyptic preoccupation. As if I need one!]
I am in a hotel or conference center. Then end of the world is coming, although I don’t know why at all. I am packing up a rucksack. My wife is doing the same somewhere nearby. I am being very thorough – lots of socks and underwear. A whole slew of gloves, but many of them appear to be fancy leather dress gloves. Ear muffs, earphones [?]
People around me are getting frantic. I say, “Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m not surprised.”
She Hid My Stuff:
I am in a big stadium, but it is empty. I am down on the playing field with a young woman. She has hidden some clothes of mine under a bench. She looks sort of like Carly Simon. [I saw this album cover after a chorus performance of songs from the 1970s that my wife was in yesterday.]
Finally, she takes me to the bench where I can retrieve my clothes. A coat, sort of a velvet material, and some other things, and they have mud on them, which I point out to her.
“Why?” I say.
“I thought (you thought) I was fat,” she replies.
“You should have said something, and I would have said that you’re beautiful. Stay with me.“
We embrace and lie down on the grass, staying there for hours as it grows dark.
