Dreams and Nightmareland
|||||Melissa Etheridge - Precious Pain||]|
I had an odd dream this morning just before waking up:
I was at some sort of a party (not a Christmas party) in someone’s apartment, and as we were getting ready to order some hot wings I suddenly got up and went with Sue to our new apartment.
We went to a ‘garden’ apartment complex in Queens, and found a huge two-story complex painted blue with a white balcony all around the second floor (continuous, so you could walk all around the building). When we opened the door to our new place it was a huge apartment (bigger than our real house), two stories tall with an open ‘living’ area and lots of rooms, very nice and fully furnished. But when we started moving our few boxes of stuff in, we found there were a bunch of college students hanging out in it. It turns out that there was a door that was open between our apartment and the next one, where the college kids lived. As soon as I closed and locked the door, we realized (as they kept coming in) that there was a panel on the wall, held loosely on with nails, which also allowed access between our apartments. As I was trying to fix that, we realized that there was a huge section of wall actually missing between our apartments, with only a flimsy accordion screen to close it off.
The college kids kept wandering in and out of our apartment, despite the fact that we kept trying to keep them out. They were all wandering around naked, acting really annoying, and one girl and one guy in particular were making crude attempts to hit on me and Sue respectively. This is where you might expect it to turn into one of (ahem) THOSE dreams, but both the dream-Sue and I were just really annoyed by them all.
We started walking around the outside balcony, looking for the manager’s apartment to file a complaint, and then I woke up.
