As in dreams, so in life

So I had this dream the other night. A good one. Not like the nightmare I had last night in which my workplace turned into a scene from “Nine to Five” in which I was assigned to protect the Dabney Coleman character and act as his decoy. *shudder* The horror! No, I had a good dream. A dream dream.

In my slumber, I saw someone I met very recently. Someone I rather liked and thought maybe-more-than-a-little-bit about. Someone I wouldn’t normally have had the balls to approach.

The dream sequence was pretty clear, meeting up, hanging out, time passing and then crossing paths again. In the dream, I remember hoping that he’d talk to me the second time around. I figured that if we didn’t find a reason to bump into each other, well hell, maybe we’d end up in the same place again someday. Maybe.

The thing about my dreams? I am completely in control of them. And I somehow thought to myself, “Hey dumbass, don’t lose this one. Don’t count on fate to figure this out for you. He’s a boy — he has no idea what you’re thinking.”

And in the dream, I looked at him. And I thought, hey, what’s the worst that can happen? That he’ll tell me to go away? That he’ll laugh? That it will make for an awkward moment? Big whoopin’ deal. Seriously.

“But think of what you’ll be missing out on if you don’t,” my dream inner voice told me.

Perhaps it was because I knew I was dreaming, but I took the chance. And all I know is that I wasn’t disappointed in my decision. At all.

And as such, I decided to apply my newfound rediscovered set of balls in “real life.”

To be continued. …

    Rediscovering ones balls, especially when one actually doesn’t have the equipment (no, you may not see what I have in that jar on the hearth! stop asking!) is rather intoxicating.

    As is working up the courage to go talk to a new person. I am very envious!
