Dude, get up.
I said, get up!
Wha? Huh? Whose zat?
Me. I said wake up.
No, not until we talk.
What the fu–
Don’t speak to me that way, now get up or I’m gonna give you a wedgie.
Friggen leave me alone, dammit!
NO. I want an explanation now.
Bitch, can’t you see I’m trying to sleep here? WHAT THE FU-
That’s it, I’m grabbin..
Ow! Jezzus, what the hell is wrong with you?
Good, you’re awake.
Well now I am!!!
We need to talk about last night.
What about it? Ooooooh, my friggen head. I think I’m gonna hurl.
The bathroom’s over there. Go do what you gotta do and then come back. We’re gonna talk about that dream I had last night.
Dream you had? Sheeee it, that’s what this is about?
Yes, now go.
Little demanding there. Can you at least give me a couple minutes here? I gotta —
I can’t stand up yet-
Why not? Ohhhhhh…
Yea, smart ass. Ohhh.
Sorry, I’m a chick. Nothing on me wakes up twenty minutes before I do. I’ll turn away until you’re, ahem, ALL awake and good to go.
You can at least offer to make me a cup of coffee while we’re waiting.
Sure, but let me tell you it’s early afternoon.
So? My shift starts at midnight.
Ah, that’s right…you have the night shift. Which is exactly why we need to talk.
I’m not getting into this without my afternoon piss and a cup of coffee.
Fine then – I’ll be back with two cups. I give you two minutes, make it quick.
Two minutes? I can’t whiz that fast.
That’s gross, just go already — sheesh!
Watch the attitude.
You’re a pain in the ass, ya know that?
Hey, I’m not the one with the raging hangover.
You try coming up with millions of ideas for dreams every night, night after night. Then you can come bitching to me about how much I drink. It’s not easy being me, ya know.
Oh, quit your whining. Geez, you can be such a girly man at times.
You heard me. You have no idea what it’s like to be female.
Uh, yea, I do. I rummage around inside many females’ heads on a regular basis. And let me tell you, what I see is scary shit sometimes.
You fantasize too often. Sorry, but Erik Estrada? How gay is that?
Me dreaming about Erik Estrada is gay? How do you figure that?
That guy was so..I dunno, 70s?
Ya, so what? At least I’m not fantasizing about Courtney Thorne Smith.
Hey, that’s hubby’s fantasy, not mine. Stick with the program here.
Whatever. So, I’m up now. What’s the big deal about last night?
Well, you threw me in a garbage truck. I’m curious to know what made you decide to do that.
I did that?
Yes, I was thrown into a garbage truck and covered in a whole bunch of disgusting crap. Then, I had to sit there and listen to the thing start compacting on me. It was scary, I started freaking out.
Wow, that’s nasty.
No kidding! I could even feel my head compressing. I feel things in my dreams, you know.
You do? Like what?
Oh, everything. Some people only dream in black and white. Many don’t even remember their dreams. I, on the other hand, remember everything. I also taste, see, touch, smell and feel in my dreams.
No, not all the time. Imagine being able to feel the concussion of being shot. Think that’s “cool”?
Exactly. But that’s what happens to me when I dream. Everything is 100% vivid.
What? You actually sounded coherent there for a moment.
Well, I do have a theory about your dreams, now that I’m a little more awake.
Hangover going away?
Can’t ya tell? Heh heh heh.
Good Lord, it’s like visiting with a frat boy. This place is even littered with beer bottles, which is odd since I don’t drink beer.
Imagine how your dreams would be if, say, I dropped acid? I think you’re getting off pretty easy here.
Well, you get the benefit of my insobriety while I have to wake each afternoon with a hangover. I think you’re the one taking advantage of me.
Oh my god, I can’t believe you’re pushing your problems off onto me.
Listen, I’ll make it very simple for you to understand. Your dreams aren’t as incoherent and incongruent as you think.
They aren’t? Hmm, try explaining that to my husband. He thinks my dreams are indicative of something far worse than just an active imagination.
Not really, but he does roll his eyes whenever he hears me say, “You won’t believe the dream I had last night…” He usually follows that up with, “And it was very weird.”
Nice catch phrase.
It works. So, back to the garbage truck dream. What was that all about?
Simple. Remember last year when you got all caught up in that work stuff?
Yea, that was a load of crap.
Oh…I think I’m catching on. I had to take a load of crap last year from some fellow workers..
And now that the main trouble maker is gone…
I can officially “dump” the idea of having to take that same load of crap THIS year!
Wow, that is freakin’ amazing. You did all that?
And you thought I was nothing more than just a lazy, shiftless, raging alcoholic frat boy who enjoys the occasional picture show of girl-on-girl action and nudity..
Whoa, buddy…Let’s not go there, okay?
Hey, I’m a guy, what can I tell ya?
I guess we all have our weaknesses. Just remember, I don’t swing that way. So, if you’re in the mood for a little girl on girl porn, go visit my hubby, okay?
Cool. How does he feel about Jennifer Aniston?
You’re a pig.
You know you love me.
I’m out of here.
