Caution: Swim At Your Own Risk

Well, another blog about a dream, but I'll make it brief and hopefully funny.  In last night's dream, my girlfriend and I had this fabulous house up in the hills somewhere, overlooking the ocean.  The pool out back was great because it had a spectacular view behind it, however, swimming in the pool were around four giant rats like the one in The Princess Bride, all no less than the size of a cocker spaniel, and one 10-foot-long albino alligator.  The GF was walking past the pool on her way back into the house, and the 'bino alligator took a snap at her ankle, narrowly missing her.  Why none of these critters ever got out of the pool, I don't know.  They just circled around in a frenzy, biting one another.

"Come on in!  The water's warm!"
In the dream I actually said this, and keep in mind that it's a small pool where you could see all the way to the bottom and there are extremely dangerous animals that are very easy to spot in there:

"We really need to remind guests not to go into the pool."

I laughed. It doesn't say much for the intelligence of your guests. Of course with that kind of creatures in the pool I wouldn't think anyone "normal" would come near that house.

Hah, that's a very dry remark! The kind of thing an upper class Englishman might say to his spouse. Did you ever want to talk like Roger Moore?

Dave: You're right. Might not get to many guests up in the hills with that pool.

Gorilla: ha. Dry remarks like yours are what keep me blogging.

Dave: I mean "too." Grammar police om myself.

You are a true gentleman, Dr. Ken. Glad you are looking out for us. Any ideas on what this dream might mean? I think it would have been awesome if the White Mamba would have been pool side. Have a good one, buddy.

I love trying to explain dreams to people. I usually come off sounding like a crazy though. I take melatonin every night to help me sleep. As a side effect my dreams are really vivid, but as previously stated, they don't translate well into actual words.

I would look out for that gator. I don't trust albino animals.

Ha! Sadly, had I been a guest I probably would have needed this advice.

Shife: Ha! If the White Mamba were there, I would dive in front of a 'bino gator to save his ginger life.

Grand: I do a better job typing them. Telling them to people is usually annoying, right? Maybe typing them is to, but I don't have any other good means of new topics lately . . .

Convo: Well, in general, I would say check for giant dangerous animals before dipping your toes in.
