At 4:54 am this morning I was wide awake. 🙄
I woke up from one of those dreams that wake me because the story turned sour.
I was walking in an industrial area early in the morning. The sky was gray, the air foggy and misty. I was shuffling to meet back up with a group of friends that were having a get-together of some kind.
A car pulled up and an early 20 something boy got out. And then his girlfriend got out. As they were walking toward me a couple more 20 somethings appeared and drew closer, like wary insects knowing they’re about ready to feed.
I said to the first guy, “do you want the cash in my wallet” and he nodded. The dream fast-forwarded as they often do, and then I was laying on the ground. The latter three held my arms and legs while the first laid on his stomach beside me. Going through my wallet, tossing business cards and whatever aside.
Then he took my car keys and started taking the keys off, one by one. He motioned that I could keep my truck key and then laid the others in another pile on my chest, like he was going to keep them.
Then I said to him, “now you’re just fucking me.”
And then I woke up because I was done with all of that.
