Here’s my dream last night:
I was trying to get to some sort of Robot vs Dinosaur function – I think it was a fundraiser dinner or something – but I was trapped on a conference call for work. So I sat and sat and sat until the function had started and I decided ‘I can’t miss this dinner, I have to go.’ I packed up a laptop and carried it to the dinner, where I took over a whole table and sat there, by myself, on my laptop and on my phone and worked.
People would come up to me wanting to talk, and I’d just smile and shrug my shoulders. What am I going to do? I’m working.
My girlfriend was trying to call me too. She was sitting at another table at the dinner. Couldn’t pick up. Really, really wanted to. Sorry! I looked across the room to where she was and smiled and shrugged my shoulders.
So I went back to the call and the laptop with all of this fun going on around me. And then suddenly my manager from when I was first hired showed up.
He asked me how things were going, and I just started in on everything. Complaining, gnashing teeth, moaning, wailing, etc. And Ray (that was his name) just smiled and nodded and smiled and nodded. Yeah, that sounds about right.
And then he asked to take a look at my laptop at as he was looking over my work emails and laughing I woke up.
That’s the closest thing I’ve had to a nightmare in a long, long time.
