What did you dream about last night?
I was on mars, which had been freshly terrafomed with breathable air, but still desert-like, collecting guitar picks from the soil. I showed them to a team of scientists. |
"Evidence that, in very ancient times, before some disaster destroyed the biosphere of Mars, this planet hosted a diverse variety of teenage garage bands." I said to them.
Then I was at the Winrock mall in Albuquerque, explaining to my nephew how to fly like a superhero. I opened a door and flew in circles over the parkinglot, and came back.
"See." I said to him upon returning. "The trick is to avoid colliding with powerlines, hot air balloons, and airplanes."
I found myself alone in the desert - in the foothills of the Sandias.
Then I was sailing a white sailboat across a lake in siberia, watching floating ice float past me. The sky was full of unpowered aircraft - gliders, parachutists, and hang gliders. The lower layers of air were full of cranes, white geese, and other white waterfowl.
At the end of my dream I was in a Teaching ESL class in outer mongolia, with people of various eurasian and asian ethnicities. Madonna was sitting to the left of me - in her underwear. The teacher of the class was an american man with long hair. I raised my hand.
"Yes." he said. and pointed at me.
"Are you guys hiring? Because I already have a degree in this." A blue eyed kashmiri woman looked at me. The teacher stared at me, and then approached my desk. From it he removed my Gulf Shores Alabama shot glass - ( the one with the pirate-style skull and crossbones ).
"Well this is hardly appropriate to have in class" he said. He took it back and put it on his desk. "It would be a shame if it broke. And yes, we are hiring."
I realized that having a shot glass on my desk made me look bad, and I probably wouldnt get the job. I looked out the window and saw paragliders, gliders, parachutists and hang gliders over that siberian lake - all in white and flying through the air and descending in white equipment and vehicles. There were numerous white geese, ducks, and cranes taking off and landing in the water.
