so i had that last dream, about the tornado and the ring. i got up and did what i usually do, fall over the stuff i left out while wandering around in the dark, turn on the tv for noise, begin to write up dreams. i didn’t pay attention to what was on, just registered the sound in the back of my mind. my roommate got up and i had to help him find something and in doing so i walked past the tv and glanced up at the screen.
there was no picture to accompany the sound. at 5am, in december, the screen was filled with a placard i’ve never seen used before that read in big white words: tornado test. i stood and stared with my mouth open. i called my roommate to the tv to witness. he’d read my dream and i asked him- does this mean that’s a sign? being facetious, to me that is most Definitely a Sign. but of what??
so i went and got the ring i’d been dreaming about and put it on. i walked back over to look at the screen. the channel got their picture back on but in a few seconds it was off again, the tornado test sign back on. and i laughed and asked what i was supposed to do. it went back to the show and then back to the card once again. then the show stayed on after.
i still have the ring on but i have no idea what i’m supposed to do beyond that.
last night i needed a lot of extra sleep. didn’t get up until i had another nightmare about my neighbor trying to take my land. there was a huge, roiling river behind my house and she was trying to fence off the water so i couldn’t see it. i had to help rescue drowning puppies from snotty yellow piles of intestinal worms so thick they were like soup. very weird scene. and extra upsetting because my grandmother has just died.
: ) the other day i dreamed about an alice gun.
