Live Real. Eat Real.

Dream A Little Dream Of…Salmonella

I had a really bizarre series of dreams last night.

First, an acquaintance of mine showed up to the house (which, of course, was a mess).  She kept hugging and kissing me and it soon became apparent her intentions were a little more than friendly, if you get my drift.  I was saved from an embarrassing situation because she saw a roast chicken on my kitchen counter and immediately started to eat it.  I wanted to tell her “No!  Don’t eat that!  It’s been sitting out all night!”  But I didn’t, either out of embarrassment that there was a chicken on my counter that had been allowed to sit out all night or fear that I’d find myself in an embarrassing situation; I’m not sure.

Then, other people started showing up in my house – people I didn’t even know – and they started to eat the chicken, too, along with the bags of peppers from the farmer’s market I’ve been hoarding in the freezer in the garage.  Beloved must have been out of town on business, because all I could think was, “I can’t tell these people not to eat this chicken because it’s been sitting on the counter all night, but Beloved’s going to kill me because all they’re all going to get salmonella and sue us.”

At which point I was saved awakened by the sounds of The Young One in the kitchen making his lunch.

And the moral of this story, boys and girls, is if you wake up in the middle of the night with a killer hot flash and menopause-induced anxiety attacks and are driven to the sofa so you don’t keep your husband up because a tired husband is a cranky husband, don’t fall asleep while watching Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner.

I still don’t know where the whole hugging and kissing thing came from.  And I really don’t want to.

Actually I wanna hear more about the hugging and kissing!

Jan says:

You would. :P

Ha ha! Blame it on hormones. Or holiday stress. Or … ?
Hope you have a great weekend (and get some sleep!)

Jan says:

Hormones…stress…a chocolate martini too late in the evening…

Mama Badger says:

You need to start (or stop?) drinking before bedtime.

No worries, though. Salmonella is hardly cause to sue someone. Trust me, I’ve been there.

Jan says:

Um, that would be “stop”. Not that I will.

Good to know about the salmonella…I was really worried about that chicken.

Lori says:

Been there done this…lol…our minds can dream up some crazy shit when it’s hormonal, mixed in with a little bit of holiday stress or watching something on TV…lol at Beloveds comment…you two so crack me up. Happy weekend. XX

Jan says:

Oh, good – I’m so glad it’s not just me!! LOL

Michele says:

Leave it to a guy to want the kissing/hugging details. They tell me the night sweats/crazies will pass. I am disinclined to believe them.

Jan says:

I am also disinclined to believe them, since my 73-year-old mother-in-law says she still gets them occasionally. Does that not just SUCK?

Well, you are a pretty hot catch, and you can cook, maybe Be should be worried…
Not about the salmonella.

Jan says:

Should he be? Hmmmm…could you call him and tell him that? ;)

BE says:

Hell yes I’m worried. Before you get any ideas, she’s mine! You girls better stop the flirting!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! And I thought I was having weird dreams lately – yours totally outshine mine! ;)

Jan says:

I am nothing if not weird. Asleep or awake.

Monica says:

OK now I have heard 2 interesting dreams this week. Hubby dreamed that he was delivering phone books in a golf cart. OH and a Monk was driving. wtf????

BE says:

A Holy Roller?

Lisa says:

Hahahahahahaha. What did you tell the Young One?

Jan says:

Probably to put a piece of fruit in his lunch and don’t miss the bus.

Oh, and avoid the chicken sitting on the kitchen counter.
