INTRODUCING A NEW PLAYER--THE SCOTTISH DREAMER

I have a new Scottish friend. She is intelligent, savvy, funny, spiritual, patient, and, let's face it, she's bilingual. (You ever heard any deep-Scottish person speak their version of English?)

She is a dreamer. A real dreamer and she talks during her dreams. Her husband sometimes records her dreams and they are hilarious. I will wait for her to post her latest and then I will give you a quick version.

She and her husband sleep on a waterbed. She is tiny, about 90 pounds with a mop of blond curly hair, not that her hair has anything to do with this post but her weight does. Her husband is not tiny. He could stop a locomotive. (I will call him Clark Kent.) One night she had gone to bed first and was asleep when Clark Kent got in bed. The waterbed did it's "wave thing" and the Scottish Dreamer put her arms straight above her head and yelled, "Woo hoo!" Just as if she had gone over the edge at the top of the roller coaster. Then all was quiet. She didn't even wake up.

I've been thinking about this. I think she expects the best out of life. The fun. The good stuff. If that had happened to me, my hair would have stood straight up--what hair I have left after this week's Internet outage--and I would have yelled something like, "Ohmygosh, I'm gonna die!"

Yup, the Scottish Dreamer is an optimist. She is going to enjoy the ride that this earth life offers. What she has is Optimistitis. I hope she's contagious.

I love this post! Cris is always telling me how active I am in my sleep. Hopefully I'll do something funny like this in the near future. It's nice to be entertaining, even in your sleep.

You are correct, I already love this dreamer lady. Plus, also, my Amy friend said she had her wedding shower in your yard and I now belive I have pin-pointed your location. One day you may come home and I will be sitting in your yard in the lovely chairs Amy said you had. I may be chatting with Mrs. Bird. Or maybe just having a Diet Coke enjoying the loveliness of warm weather. You just never know what kind of riff raff might turn up. Maybe I'll even invite Hillyerie. She's a good egg.

I hope Shan comes over. I am laughing about your new Scottish friend doing the 'woohoo' right exactly in her sleep. I would not do that.

Well just as good as an optimist is a person who can take the ups and downs and internet outs and still laugh and make others laugh even though they want to say ohmygosh, I am going to die!

Thanks for the laugh!

I think you have a gift for dream analysis. As I've thought about your analysis of my Gilligan's Island dream, I can see where you could be totally accurate.

(This is my alter-ego identity, and I'm being too lazy to switch today. But yes, this is ...

There's Mrs. Bird, the Scottish Dreamer, and Tom Cruise--you have quite a diverse, eclectic group of friends. Thanks for adding some fun to my otherwise humdrum life by your insightful and vivid descriptions of them.
Love you!
