A Dream, A Chuckle
As I think I've mentioned before, I don't dream (or remember my dreams) very often. However I woke from one on Saturday morning, my first day of spring break, that made me laugh. I'm not sure of the context, which is usually the case when I dream, but for what seemed like several minutes I listened to someone say, "business" over and over and over again. But rather than annunciate the three syllables in the word it was said emphasizing the many "s" sounds in the word. It was more like, "bisssss nisssss, bisssss nisssss". I remember thinking, "Why do they keep saying that?" feeling irritated. Then I woke myself up, and it was only about 6:00 am. That's when I remembered that my bedroom window was open, and I heard a bird whistling in the same two beats the "person" was saying "business" in my dream. With eyes still closed, I got up, closed the window and fell back into bed. I wasn't going to let this bird interrupt my sleep or invade my dreams that early on the first day of break.
