You Tell Me Your Dream...

I had the weirdest dream last night. It's so weird, it should probably be televised...

Anyway, I dreamt that I was on a road trip from Florida up to New Jersey. I was in South Carolina, and I needed to stop for coffee. When I got out of the car, it was moving north at around 60 miles per hour, and it continued traveling after I got out. Oops! The car was my parents' Buick Park Avenue - the one that they had from 2000 to 2005, not the Buick thing that my father drives today. I got ahold of another car, and the same thing happened - I got out of the car, and it was still travelling at 60 MPH. I called my mother (odd, because she's been dead since 2001), and she told me that the car was in the shop and my father was really ticked off at me. So, here I was, stuck in South Carolina, with no money and no car.

In the dream, I had a full head of hair. That's odd, because I never really dream I have hair. I was using the bathroom in a lady's house, and I came out and used the kitchen sink to get some water or to wash my hands. She came up behind me, and said, "Elvis? Are you Elvis?" I replied, "No, Ma'am, but I appreciate using your sink. Thank you. Thank you very much." And, I started to walk north.

At this point, the lady and about fifty people from town followed me and caught up with me. They begged me to sing a song for them, and a band started playing "Love Me Tender." I remember thinking, "Good thing I know the words to all those Elvis tunes..." (Editor's note: I actually do know the words to many Elvis tunes, thanks to singing with Big Apple Chorus.) I sang "Love Me Tender," and Elvis' voice came out of my body. I also danced like Elvis - or my best approximation.

So, the rest of the dream was a series of images / video clips of me in various places between South Carolina and Washington, D.C., singing as Elvis for travel and food money.

My alarm went off at 6:15 this morning, and I was truly disoriented. I expected to wake up in Washington, D.C., and was surprised to be in my bed. But, wouldn't that make an entertaining video show - movie or TV?
