Feeling a cold coming on?
Normally I can tell a cold is coming by waking up one day with a sore throat. Another sure tell? An absurd dream. Don't get me wrong. I can have dreams as bizarre and vivid as the next guy (ask my sisters). However, last night - or this morning rather - was a doozy! I will give you the bullet points of what I remember:
-I was on the set of The Colbert Report
-Watching a family of circus performers (one of whom was my friend)
-We were really waiting to see Rich Hardesty (I know)
-And he was going to sing, "Cool Guy With a Car"
For those of you who don't know, that song is by a guy named Wally Pleasant. Kim had a tape of his in college, and I was pretty sure it was the coolest thing ever at the time. Even now, that's my favorite song from the album. I even have it on my computer because a few years ago I found him online and got the CD for Kim. Ah, nostalgia. Although I haven't even thought about that lately, much less listened to it.
As for Rich Hardesty - he played a lot in Bloomington, but I don't think I even saw him play. Maybe once. But totally random. I mean, I'm pretty sure I thought he was a douche. He redeemed himself in my dream by planning on playing that song, I guess.
Something tells me I'm going to load up on Nyquil tonight. Oooo, that should give me some certifiable dreams. I'll let you know.
