Happy Monday, readers!! Today is a super special day because today is the day after my best friend, John Hamm, got accepted into law school!!!! I am so happy for her and I can't wait to do illegal stuff and have her defend my honor. It's gonna be fantastic. Let's go break the law! Last night we went out for drinks and celebrated - it was wonderful!
Okay, now on to the real post...
So, on Saturday, John Hamm and I were both really tired and we both ended up taking naps at the same time. No, we don't live together, which makes it a little more odd, but I just assume that this is what makes us so in tune with one another as friends. Anyway, this is the texting conversation we had when we both woke up:
JH: That nap was glorious. Aside from the strange parade of dream vignettes.
Me: Mine too, including the drumline squirrel mascots.
JH: Weeeeeird. Mine just had our co-worker, Clark Kent, popping up everywhere - at the film festival, on the subway, just around. He was ubiquitous.
Me: Mine had all of us and then there were mascots that were squirrels playing military snare drums everywhere.
JH: All of us?
Me: Yeah. Our gang... and maybe Clark Kent was the guy in the squirrel costume!!
Me: One of them hit me in the face with his drumstick...
JH: Hahaha - sucks.
Me: Yeah, and then they had a drum-off.
JH: That is strange... What were we all doing there?
Me: Grocery shopping.
JH: ...I don't know what I was expecting. Also, we napped at the same time, so technically we just slept together. ;)
Me: Yaaaaaay! :)
Okay, so now we fast-forward to when I got to work and talked to Clark Kent.
Me: Clark Kent, you were in mine and John Hamm's dreams today!
CK: Cool. How so?
Me: Well, in John Hamm's you just kept popping up in random places. In mine, I'm pretty sure you were the guy dressed as a squirrel and playing the drums.
Me: Yeah, it was so weird! Especially because John Hamm and I both napped at the same time and we both had dreams where you just illogically appeared out of nowhere throughout both of them - except in mine, there were multiples of you.
CK: In a squirrel costume?
Me: Yeah, but I'm pretty sure it was you. It only makes sense with John Hamm's dream.
CK: What time was this at?
Me: Between 2:00 and 3:00 today.
CK: That's so weird... I was reading my book at that time and I kept nodding off, just drifting in and out of consciousness.
Me: Oh my gosh. You Inceptioned our dreams!!!
CK: I totally did!
And then he walked away and left me standing in awe. My co-workers are literally awesome.
