So, I had this dream...
If anyone would like to interpret this dream that I had last night, be my guest. I woke up three times during the course of it.
Carroll and I were sitting of the fronch porch steps of the house when two men dressed like 1940's mobsters came around the corner. They proceeded to tell us that John had been killed by pirates. Then they left. Carroll became very angry and said that it was my fault and that John's blood would be on my hands if I didn't "go to Wake Christian and start a food fight in the cafeteria."
Not wanting to have John's untimely demise on my concience, I scurried on over the Wake Christian, but rather than starting a food fight, I entered a tiny chamber that was full of flour (yes, I spelled it the right way). The chamber started spinning and I was soon covered in flour.
THEN (and this is the weird part), John shows up at Wake Christian and starts barking out orders. He instructs the students to place me in a ginormous oven and cook me. He wasn't killed by pirates after all!!! faker....
That's when I woke up, or rather a cow mooed and woke me up. I think it was "Gimpy."
