Talking to strangers

Today in a public restroom at Cave of the Mounds a child walked up next to the urinal I was using and said, "I didn't know girls peed standing up". I guess he couldn't tell what gender I was because of my pony tail.

I ignored the child and went to wash my hands when I heard an adult telling the child that I wasn't a girl. I am surprised though that the child wasn't told never to speak to strangers.

So... what do we have here??? and adult who allows their child to walk up to strangers in public restrooms and start conversations with them. I don't understand why parents are so permissive with their children these days.

Dream about Plato

Plato kept going outside to wait for someone to arrive, but I don't know who he thought was coming. Ann and I were somewhere with the dogs, in a house that I've never seen before and there were lots of beautiful trees outdoors. I would go outside on the lawn to pick up Plato and bring him in out of the rain, and I felt bad that he was longing for someone who was never arriving.

I wonder if he misses our friend, Tim who is away for the summer?

DREAM: Your Cheatin'...Chest?

I was in a strange building...it must've been Depressions because I recognized some people from there, although the building was weird, like a long room...lots of green and grey. One woman who I used to work with was carrying a load of what looked like laundry. She lays it down on a sink or something. I look at it and it contains a bunch of dirty cotton swabs, that looked like the way they do after we clean Lucifer Sam's ears. I wondered why these were in the laundry and not in the trash. I do confront her about it and say that these really should go in the trash, and she says that she wishes that when I leave my underwear around, I wouldn't leave them with the crotch-side up. I thought this is weird, because I don't leave my underwear lying around...especially not outside my home! I was embarrassed by this, nonetheless. Then a woman who looks like a scary version of Alice from The Brady Bunch with worse teeth is talking to me. She is speaking in metaphors and I can tell that it is negative about me. As she is talking, I realize I have my head on Stan's chest (not IRL) and it is stubbly! (IRL Stan doesn't have a hairy chest) I ask him why he shaved his chest, and he says "For Paula!" (Paula is someone who Stan used to work with and was a good friend of Tim's, or so she thought) I get this urge to strangle him, let out a noise that is like "Aaaaarrgh" and wake myself up moaning, groaning, crying and kicking.

DREAM with Nico

I was in an auditorium or theatre and there was going to be a band performing which included Erik/Nickolas (Nico). I was sitting way in the back and his band enters and goes way in the back too, and sit in the seats across the aisle from me. Nico, who I recognize immediately, is carrying a guitarcase. I wave to him and say "hi" and he says hi back, but I don't think he recognized me. Either that, or he wasn't expecting me to be there. Was I in Norway or was he in the U.S.?

DREAMs: Butterfly and Rodents

I was looking in the cage (aquarium) with our Monarch chrysalises and found a butterfly that had hatched and I had somehow overlooked (IRL we're between hatchings...they're good for another week or so) except it wasn't a Monarch. It had the wingspan size of some huge tropical moth or butterfly, except not as horizontal, more vertical, which is very odd. It had the coloration/markings of a Tiger Swallowtail, and the rough edge design of a Mourning Cloak. It was quite impressive and beautiful. I wanted to get a picture of it, but it had gotten out of the cage and was in the back porch. I shut the doors and left it in there, and I went to get my camera. When I came back, I couldn't find it.

I was going to eat at some tavern/mom and pop eating place. I went in the back door as somehow I was invited there. The proprietors/cooks were maybe around my age, and even though they were inside cooking, they were wearing sunglasses. I wondered if they were blind. I think they also had some kids running around in the kitchen too. I noticed a cage (not aquarium, but metal cage) with some pet rodents in it like a guinea pig, a gerbil and something else. There was no odor coming from the cage so they must have kept it very clean, but still...not something you would want in a kitchen if cooking for the public. There was also something very strange about the animals, it was as if their bodies had been squeezed into doll clothes. The cooks served me a meal at a big table where the rest of the family ate. I can't remember what it was except for one dish which was a salad consisting of grated carrots and salmon roe. I guess maybe that could be good, but in the dream it wasn't...except for the Salmon roe. The carrots were kind of mushy.

The night before last I also dreamt of a rodent, or maybe it was a bat. I was holding it, and noticed its ear was vanishing due to some insects that were devouring it. It was sad.

I wonder why I've been dreaming about rodents so much lately.
