Not Quite Sugarplum Fairies

Last night I had a dream where I was seeing through the eyes of Bart Simpson. The Simpson family was in a position where they had to get a tractor trailer rig from one place to another. The tractor part was broken, so Homer was towing the whole thing with his car.

Grandpa Simpson was in the cab giving advice to Marge, who was steering. He was singing an old trucker's song about how to get past certain things you might see along the road. Some of his advice included the following. In the dream it rhymed.

If you pass by a cliff,
And it has one tier,
Throw ridiculous hammers
Over the edge.

If you pass by a cliff,
And it has two tiers,
Tap it on the side
With your knee.

If you pass by two dogs
Stuck together by their backs,
Get out your stick
And give them several whacks.

I'm not sure if they ever got to their destination, but since the Simpsons episodes usually reset at the end, I suspect everything worked out for the best.

No more habanero ice cream before bed for you, mister.

What did you eat before bed?

I either don't dream or I can't remember them. Or I just never get to REM sleep with all the animals and children needing something throughout the night.

The food was party food prepared by Mandy and Mr. Mandy. The food was fabulous, and the company was fantastic. We all had a great time.
