i had the worst nightmare last night. i dreamt that sister #4 offered up my apartment as a place where a team of cheerleaders from california could stay while participating in some competition.
it all seemed ok. i could handle a gaggle of cheerleaders for the weekend. not a problem. so i’m sleeping in bed when the cheerleaders arrive. sister #4 is there and she lets them in. i am awakened by all the commotion and sit up in bed. i see the cheerleaders enter my room.
they are all midgets. an entire troop of midget-cheerleaders were dotting the floor of my bedroom. they all had these gearbags bigger than them and were wearing bad makeup.
it was terrible. i am afraid of midgets. i have been since 8th grade. there was one midget (and i don’t even know the pc term anymore) girl in my junior high. she was mean to me. really, quite mean to me. of course, i think it was because i was so tall (6’2″ at the time) and she was so short. i really have no idea why she disliked me so much, i never asked because she was always making fun of me.
so i am sitting on bed, with the midget cheerleaders stretching out on the bedroom floor. one of them is talking to sister #4. i am frozen in fear. i don’t want to get out of bed, because i don’t want them to see how tall i am. but at the same time, i really want to get out of bed because i have to pee.
finally the urge to pee is stronger than my fear of midgets. i step out of bed and you can hear a hush fall over the crowd. then the whispers. “damn she’s tall.” “would you look at her.” “wow.”
then i decided to leave. i am not sure where i was going. in the dream my co-workers dallas and vince lived right down the hall. i went to go visit them. but the thing was, the entire apartment building was taken over by midget cheerleaders and dancers. they were spilling out of apartment doors, practicing in the halls. everywhere.
so i made it over to vince’s apartment and i returned the watch my 2-year-old nephew had stolen from him. well, as much as a 2-year-old can steal. vince thanked me kindly and said i should get going if i wanted to make it to the cheerleading competition on time.
i missed the competition, i am not sure how or why. but when i got home, i turned on the tv and there was a made for tv movie about the midget cheerleading competition. i was most happy, because i wanted to see how everything ended.
that’s when i woke up. feel free to analyze.
