I’m sick: flaming throat, coughing, sniffles. And last night I went out for the first time in days. An hour or so of gentle dancing and a stop at Trader Joes. Mistake. Came back slaughtered and had nightmares all night.
I dreamed that my life savings were concentrated into individual pieces of honeydew melon, which were in a big glass jar. Each piece contained an entire year’s savings in compressed form. But due to weakness from this flu, I dropped the jar and spilled the melon. Many pieces slid under the stove, under the fridge, never to be retrieved. Whole years of my life savings gone.
