Apparently, drinking coffee before bedtime will either give you insomnia or really enhance your dreams. In my case, last night, it was the latter. Without further ado, a possible insight into my psyche:
I dreamed I was having new air conditioning installed in my boss’s house. It was Halloween, and I was watching the old vampire movie Nosferatu on DVD. Apparently, I was also planning to go out in drag for Halloween. I was also getting Dakota groomed while I was waiting for the A/C installers to finish.
Oh, did I mention they had a new pet lion? The funny thing was, sometimes the lion had a mane, sometimes it didn’t.
Anyway, once the installers were done and Dakota was all groomed, we left, but somehow Dakota got off his leash. Naturally, when I chased after him he thought it was a game, and he proceeded to go to an apartment complex nearby and jump in the pool, which was full of kids. So I (in drag, remember) have to wade into the pool and get him out, effectively ruining his new ‘do (and my drag) and requiring me to get out the hair dryer (I don’t own one, but apparently in the dream I did) and give him a brush-out.
And then I woke up.
So, perhaps coffee is (or is not) the best thing to drink before bedtime.
At least you all didn’t dream about that guy with the cheese. I don’t know where the hell that came from….
