Dreaming of My Secret Boyfriend

True story: Last night I dreamed that my secret boyfriend Colin Firth was interviewing me for a secretarial position. I had to take a typing test. I did very poorly. Then he came out from his desk and was only three feet tall! Oh, Mr. Darcy! I'm still traumatized.

Margaret, I thought Santa was your secret boyfriend, after that Christmas love letter fiasco.

Maybe it's time you noticed how tall your real boyfriend is. I'll bet you can type pretty fast when he's around. Baby!

3 feet tall? I think it was a disguised premonition of Davy Jone's death

A poor typing test and a three foot tall Colin Firth? Sounds like a nightmare to me, Margaret.

Is there something you are feeling insecure about? Or perhaps you should avoid the late night pizza and beer? Don't you just wish your subconscious mind would just come out with it?

Vanda said...

Very intriguing. I wonder what Colin Firth symbolizes in your dreams.

Margaret said...

Strange, isn't it? And last night I dreamed--at two different intervals and in two different ways--that I was trying to get home, but kept being interrupted by things like tornadoes, my car turning into a bicycle, and strangely enough, a woman dressed in blown up white balloons who said I had to sell cookies.

I drempt I was taking orders at Amazon, and someone from Canada called. She said her address in French and I couldn't make it out. "Dove?" I kept saying, so she said it in Italian and then I understood.

(I think PA nailed the interpretation.)

Ahahaha. Oh noooo! That is some spectacular camera work they did in Pride and Prejudice, to make him look so tall, then!

When you said he came out from behind his desk, I was thinking "and now he takes her in his arms!" Such a disappointment, in a very entertaining way!

Hilarious. Be glad you at least got an interview! ;o)

In real life actors are much smaller than we think, but 3 feet small is stretching it. I expect you saw Colin at the Oscars and also read about the new Guinness Record Smallest Man? A sweet 72-year old from Nepal, just a bit smaller than Colin.

Dreams are hilarious. Our brains let themselves go when we're not keeping an eye on them at night. If only we could hear the neurons laughing.

Margaret said...

Amalia: I think you might be right. Based on other things I've read about Persephone, I've always suspected that she enjoyed being queen of the underworld.

Margaret: I think it must have been a nice change at least, from what her life was in the greater world -- I think the Greek goddesses had to take advantage of whatever opportunities they met to actually have some agency of their own!

OMG that's hilarious. I wonder what all of those dream analysis experts would say about that:)

Jean Spitzer said...

I hope your dream man has does better next time.

Good thing it was just a dream...when you have the real interview, I'm sure he'll still be Mr. Dreamboat!!!

I think your hubby found his way into your dream to make your secret boyfriend short.
