Clearing the Cache

You know it’s a weird-ass dream when it includes:

  • the Civ­il War
  • a vis­it home to Alaba­ma with peo­ple who have been dead for years—but in cur­rent times, in a house that was sold out of the fam­i­ly more than a decade ago
  • an LJ “fig­ure” who you’ve nev­er met, and have nev­er even read!
  • Cin­derel­la in 5″ stilet­tos (clear glass, of course)
  • some sort of royalty/palace that seemed to com­bine ele­ments of the British empire, the Man­ti­co­ran monar­chy (from David Weber’s Hon­or Har­ring­ton series), Sam’s Crown & Rose D&D cam­paign, and some utter­ly uniden­ti­fi­able elements
  • con­fla­tion of Joe Brown with Willie Nel­son, appar­ent­ly heir to the throne in the above monarchy
  • said palace being locat­ed where a lit­tle con­ve­nience store (for­mer­ly with a gas sta­tion, long closed) was locat­ed a few lots away from your mater­nal grand­moth­er’s home
  • a mas­sive par­ty includ­ing a “big top” sort of feel with all of the above
  • wear­ing cloth­ing that def­i­nite­ly is NOT street legal to said par­ty, with no sense of discomfort
  • Some kind of big-pic­ture view of attempts to put out the fires (pre­sum­ably of the Civ­il War, à la Sher­man) across a sky­line that has nev­er had any­thing to do with Gads­den, Alaba­ma, or even Atlanta, Geor­gia, that segues into cities across the world
  • your first car (a 1967 Cougar totalled in 1985)
  • ToD, the Truck of Doom that belongs to curiousmay9
  • a motor­cy­cle you’ve nev­er encoun­tered (I haven’t ever dri­ven one, and haven’t been on one as a pas­sen­ger since I was 7)
  • No, I don’t usu­al­ly dream about vehi­cles. Or wars.  I think there was even a Bil­bo Bag­gins-type fig­ure in there somewhere.
