He's sooooo dreamy!

Last night I had a dream that I went backstage at my high school in the afternoon, and realized that that night was opening night and I had a speaking - and singing - role. I wasn't informed of a dress rehearsal, and I hadn't actually practiced in months, so I couldn't remember any of my lines. And I couldn't find my script. I knew what my costume was, but I didn't know what kind of makeup I needed... I was going to be a harp, I think, in an orange dress, and Brad was Jack (as in "and the Beanstalk" I think...) and we had a song together... I was ready to improvise, but I really had no idea what I was doing.

So, geniuses, what does THAT dream mean?

But seriously...
Freud claimed that the way you TELL a dream is as important as the dream itself. Prominent phrases in your self-analysis include the following:

"I hadn't actually practiced in months"
"I was ready to improvise"
"I really had no idea what I was doing"
"I didn't know what kind of makeup I needed"
"I wasn't informed"

These are obvious manifestations of your uncertainty about your life right now. Because the dream takes place on a stage, and you're considering your role on that stage, and your arrival to the stage was unbeknownst to you, we can interpret a portion of this dream as a jump to a new life or lifestyle you hadn't considered, such as a new job. Because this took place at your high school, you are in a state of regression, you desire the comforts of the past as an alternative to the unknown future.

The appearance of Brad as Jack (from the beanstalk story) implies a desire for honest appreciation during this turbulent stage of your life.

The harp simply means you're harping on somebody too damn much about cigarette consumption.

The orange dress means you wish you were a tangerine.

That'll be $350. Thank you in advance for your prompt payment.

Shit, that's deep. I was just going to ask her if I had Bessy the Cow with me.

P.S. Stop smoking.

The Bessy-the-Cow Syndrome
Good point about the cow. After all, where is Bessy in this nocturne imagery? The absence of the heifer suggests a deep turmoiled anxiety, probably related somehow to rancid yogurt, or perhaps a childhood conflict with a six-fingered dentist. I'll have to research this.

P.S. Hell no.

Re: But seriously...
If you all sang with the cow, would it be considered a triet? If so, how would you spell such a word?
Now THAT is deep.

Maybe it wasn't as deep as I assumed...
