I dreamt last night that my dad and I were driving along Platt Road when I saw a giant tapir by the side of the road. I made my dad turn around and go around the block somehow so that we could see it again and I could take a picture, but apparently the tapir was a sort of were-tapir or shape-shifter, so sometimes it was a tapir and sometimes it was human and sometimes it was somewhere in between. When we got back around, we got out of the car to take a picture and it turned part-human and started savagely attacking people, biting and tearing at them and killing people left and right. My dad and I walked quickly away - not running, because we didn't want to attract its attention. As we were walking all the way around Colonial Square to avoid running into the tapir again, somehow we decided that it only attacked people that it comsidered "bad" but we didn't know if it would consider us trying to take a picture of it "bad." So when we got back to Platt, we were trying to avoid it but we were concerned that one of the people in the crowd of people along Platt Road might be the tapir, completely transformed into a human. For some reason we decided that the tapir wouldn't go into crowds of children, so we had to go from group of children to group of children in order to avoid it. I remember being completely terrified.

In the next part of the dream, I was at Albion and I had to get a new mailbox key and forward mail to the old owner of the mailbox. This was not as terrifying.

A shape-shifting hog-like creature that attacks you viciously if you take a picture of it? Are you sure it wasn't Patti LuPone?


Anyway: That's one friggin' messed up dream. Sounds like one of mine. I think we share the same dream producing team.

I'm pretty sure having to get a new mailbox key AND having to forward mail trumps NOT being attacked by a human-tapir shapeshifter. Are you sure it wasn't a werewolf and you just suck at recognizing animals?

I like that you able to identify a tapir by sight.

Was the tapir in the bicycle lane?
