Time For A Question - From Ann

What is one of the strangest dreams you've ever had?
I had one that guest starred Tom Hanks as my gym teacher. Yup. That one was a doozie! Lola's gym teacher was Tom Hanks! He was dressed in grey sweats and had a whistle hanging around his neck. It was the time in gym class that all the fat kids hated (well, we really hated all parts of gym, except for maybe Tennis or Volleyball). It was the part where you had to climb the rope to the gym ceiling. All the other kids (read skinny kids) climbed up and down the ropes quickly. He's blowing his whistle and telling the kids to climb faster. Finally it was just me and one other kid left. Then the gym teacher (played by Tom Hanks) pulls out a shotgun. The other kid struggles (Tom Hanks is furiously yelling and whistling for him to "move it, move it, move it")but gets up the rope eventually. The next thing I know Tom Hanks fires a warning shot (yes! Inside the gym!) and I am grabbing at the rope, struggling. I also notice as I get a foot or so above the ground that there is a noose tied around my neck. (Yes! A noose!) So Tom Hanks has this rifle pointed at me telling me to climb, I can't climb because I'm a fat chick, but I have to do something, hang on for dear life because if I let go the noose will strangle me, if I try to climb and slip, the noose will strangle me. If I don't climb, Tom Hanks will shoot me. Then I woke up. After a little analysis of the dream and my life at the time I figured the dream meant "damned if you do, damned if you don't". I was a supervisor at a small accounting office and my boss was a bear. No matter how I tried to anticipate what he wanted or how he wanted things done, it wasn't right. I think the dream pretty much summed up my life at the time.

What is a weird dream of yours? I bet there are some doozies!!

Warning shots? Noose? Sounds like a nightmare. Bet you were happy to wake up from that one.

Happy VGNO.

O.M.G. That is the absolute best dream I have ever heard! I'm so sorry that your angst and stress created that nightmare but the image of Tom Hanks in grey sweats with a whistle and a shot gun is magic, baby!

This is the best post I have read in quite a while.
