Bob! There's an epidemic!
So, there I was again... just now... woken up... the dream...(I cannot believe this is happening again.) THIS time, I am in a hotel, one on the mountains here in Colorado...Beaver Creek...foofoo hotel. I am DYING to get massaged, cucumber wrapped, (oh my gawd to die for...) I am SOOOO excited to be there... I am waiting to check in...I have my suitcase, skiis...another suitcase, wait...wait, what is THAT...a CASE of assorted cigarettes on the valet's cart. I begin to pitch a complete fit... that the porter has LOST one case, and that I cannot POSSIBLY stay in the hotel, amongst thieves. The manager of the hotel is offering me free rooms, ski passes, a private condo, food, wine, more massages.... OHHHH no, I want is restitution for the cigarettes... and the harm has been irrepairable...well, maybe MORE ...10 cases, should more than make up for the loss, the humiliation of my behavior in the lobby...and I'm very very interested in keeping of the heavy teri cloth robes for my very own. Again, I do not smoke a thing, and wake up with the porter delivering all this ****, pounds of food, wine, flowers...whaever... and entire bed is piled to the ceiling w/smokes. No even I draw this line---smoking in bed...The cigarettes get their own private room. This has hit and fallen OVER the top.)
...I don't know WHO or WHAT to blame... the spinach pizza I had for dinner, my subsconscious mind completely running amuck, or the sheer ability to really be able to release some of this insanity, however far-fetched I have to take it... for it to SINK into my thick head. I have a sneeking hunch that since this subject has been broached I have to admit I have hightened awareness about... the smoking dream... and now, lighters. I am near to convincing myself that it is NOT smoking therapy I need but rather Post Traumatic Nicotine Disorder treatment. (again, if there is a legal waiver here...regarding confidentiality on my posts... thank you ever so much, I'd like to review that now.)
And Bob, watch out in your new career path... you're up against some substantial "obstacles"...think about it... THOSE cig's are 20 feet tall, on the big screen...careful-- there could be a rash of unexplained cinema house fires.
