Last night I dreamed I was at the Minnesota Democratic caucus. Al Gore gave a speech, and then it was my turn to give a speech. Somehow, I was picked as an average person who was supposed to give a speech about what my life is like, what challenges I face, etc.
After Al’s speech, I came up to the podium, completely freaked out. But almost everyone left to go have things autographed by Al Gore. And the microphone stopped working. So I decided to go have something signed by Al Gore as well. When I got up to the front of the line, I told Al I was scared to death of making my speech. He told me that I’d do fine, and I was placated.
Then I went back to the podium and people were filing back to their seats and the microphone was working again and I made an effort to make a speech. I must have been really worried about what I was going to say, because I kept waking up and thinking what a weird dream I was having and then falling back asleep and having to make the damn speech again. I don’t remember what I said in any of the speeches.
When I finally woke up this morning, my eye was all red. I think I was sleeping with my eye open again.
