Last Night's Episode

Previously on GDad's Dreamscape...

We took a trip to Europe.  At some point, Son and I made it to Germany, but GPop had decided to visit someplace else.  I was driving on a German road (nicht die Autobahn), and for some reason, the brakes on the car didn't work.  I slammed into the rear of the car in front of me at a light, and then more cars slammed into my back.  Fortunately, nobody was injured, and all of the cars were nominally driveable, so everyone sort of meandered off without any fuss, which made the police (die Polizei) investigation very difficult.

Then we went to a scale model of Mad King Ludwig's famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which had been done up in pink stone with attached animatronic birds.  Some American tourists were taking posed pictures in little alcoves throughout the gardens.

Single Rainbow

I saw a rainbow "'cross the sky" today on my drive to work.  It was a complete one.

Too Many Political Blogs

I read too many political blogs.

Why do I say that, you ask?

Because when I got a Playbill from a show we saw yesterday, I was reading through the Who's Who, and there was a mention of one of the actor's roles in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  I was skimming, and only saw the last two words on a line by themselves.  I read them as Technicolor Democrat.

Vegetable Insult

"The attorney general will not cast aspersions on my asparagus!"

Representative Gohmert does not appear to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

Why are the postings so light?

The story I've been living is not really my story to tell.  I appreciate those of you who have stuck around and read those things that I've been able to say.

Hope to be back some day with better material.

Last Night's Dream

I woke myself up laughing at my dream.

In the dream, GPop and I were sitting on the grass in a park, and an old acquaintance, David, walked up and joined us.  He had a big rash on his face, and he looked distressed.  He asked us, "Do I have a fever?"

GPop reached his fingers over and put two of them almost in David's nostrils, then said, "I think you have Bieber fever."

I looked at David and said, "I think you have the fever for the flavor of a Pringles!"  I noticed a snack bar next to me and grabbed the nearest Pringles can.  I squeezed it while pointing it toward David.  The lid popped off the can, and David's head disappeared in a puff of smoke, leaving the neck of his shirt open.

I thought this was so funny that I woke myself up laughing.
