I was watching TV with my grandma and the rest of my family (I don't remember why, but it was significant that my grandma was there) and flipping uncontrollably through channels. Something about Jamaicans came up - a TV show or a reference or something.

Then I was at Meijer with my sister and my high school nemesis and her mom. We were buying peas, but I was carrying everything in my arms for some reason and as we neared the checkout, I started dropping everything. I dropped two cans of peas and they broke, so I had to go back and get new ones. I was hot, so I took my pants off and left them and my wallet with Becky. I wandered the aisles, unable to find the same peas we'd had before. They had large bulk food aisles with enormous cans of peas, but not the ones I wanted. I finally found something, then I ran into a friend who had gotten new piercings. We went back and got my pants, then went looking for somewhere private where I could put them back on (apparently I can take my pants off in the middle of Meijer's but can't put them back on in public). We found this construction area, but it was full of teenagers who thought they were ninjas and wanted me to do their homework for them.

Then the construction site within Meijer turned into a construction site in a housing subdivision. We and the teenagers watched a video of a kid with a jar stuck on his head, then went outside and saw brightly-colored Technicolor vultures. The kids in the subdivision were just getting home from school and they all got off the bus with mattresses on their heads to protect them from the vultures.

I can't wear your pants, but I will take your wallet.

Who is this high school nemesis? Give me a clue.

Are you being sarcastic? Perhaps I should say middle school instead.

Long time no see, HR!

I was going to write a second stanza for the remainder of the dream, but after reading what I wrote, and thinking about how it might seem outside of the context of the dream. I started cracking up, and decided that the verse needed to stand alone. I'm still laughing. I'm glad I can entertain myself so.

Well, isn't that nonsensically cryptic...

gravatar haiku richard - October 14, 2003 - 1:18 PM -

Not meant to be cryptic, sorry. I am referring to only what I wrote and posted, not to some unseen second stanza which I never wrote.

Hee hee hee.

"You should put on your new coat and wear it around for a while. Then if you can get hot, you can just take off your pants."

You are weird.

gravatar srah - October 14, 2003 - 11:44 PM -

I try.

If you bought frozen peas, you wouldn't have this problem.

That'll teach me to not read the title of your entries first... took me a lot longer than it should have for me to figure it out.
