dreams eh! blog no 25

Published by Lamont D in the blog Lamont D's blog. Views: 469

I had to post this blog because it was one of my vivid dreams that I had last night! Full colour, vivid descriptive, with talking, narrative and really weird!

It all started as I was having my lunch in work, and as usual eating my one allowed piece of bread with ham salad, not forgetting the tomato! The boss asked me to get his chips for him.
Being a really obliging fellow, of course I said,
Can you get them from MacDonald's?
So I jumped on the train, ( nearest is two miles away!) And journeyed to the shop in a town that I knew that the place I was looking for was around the corner. I didn't recognise or know then where I was!
I walked past shop after shop until I came to the place where it should have been. But wasn't!
I stopped someone passing, I asked directions and the person of whom I had asked turned and it was my old friend, who had been not with us these past fourteen years. I wasn't surprised that he offered to take me. So we walked on and we went across a huge set of roundabouts with traffic lights and cars waiting, he lead me across and I had to dodge all types of vehicles big and small while he laughed at my actions of dancing around the traffic.
He pointed across a field that had a line of young teenagers dressed in helmets, carrying hockey like sticks and kit designed to play hurling(?) They were jeering me!
I asked my long lost friend where to get the chips, he told me to go back and tell him Dublin don't want Englishmen buying all their potatoes and chips!
My ship was waiting for me across the field but I had to play a game with the children first!
So grabbing a stick I walked faster and faster till I reached the sea but no ship.
Then I looked again and a ferry boat arrived and I climbed aboard and sat down.

I woke up!

I was panicking because I still didn't have the fries!
