Of Dreams

Anybody out there a Dream Therapist?

I have been having A LOT of trouble sleeping lately. Actually, it’s not so much the sleeping that’s giving me trouble, it’s my back.

I have never once in my life had problems with my back. Never.

But one night, about 3 weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night in agony. I mean REALLY bad pain. It felt like I was sleeping on the tip of a sword.

I figured that I just slept oddly, but the next night, same damn thing. Agony.

And I have been in pretty much complete agony ever since, every single night. Some nights are better than others, but the pain is always there.

And the odd thing is, about 5 minutes after I get out of bed, I am 100 percent fine. Back is once again as strong as an ox. I just don’t get it.

Already been to the doctor, and they took x-rays last week. I haven’t heard back yet.

But ONE interesting side effect of these night problems, is that I seem to keep getting these fucked-up dreams, kinda like those fever-dreams you get when you are sick.

Take last night, for example….

I dreamt that I was hanging out with Joe Don Baker and Steve Mqueen, when they suddenly got into an argument about something.

They started hitting each other over the head with hammers and tables, of all things!

Then they started rolling down a hill and I got caught up in the brew-ha-ha.
We rolled down a mountain, and landed on an old pirate ship, where the fight continued as the ship started to set sail.

Steve and Joe started chasing each other up and down a pair of escalators (kinda forward-thinking for a wooden pirate ship, I know), when suddenly we went over a huge waterfall!

Then my alarm went off.

I need to know what happened, dammit! Am I ok? Are Steve and Joe friends again? Who put that fucking escalator in the middle of an 18th century schooner?

Seriously, this broken back of mine, and these dreams, are driving me crazy…
