To Sleep Perchance To Dream

Walking down the shop lined hall of the very large mall, I had only one goal in mind. I had to get my hair colored. HAD TOO! I had caught a glimpse of my hair in profile in a mirror. Horrors! How in the world can I have been walking around like this. When did I get so gray and the root lines, how awful. I noticed one salon but it seemed so busy. Oh, luck of luck, there was another place just two doors down. Would it be busy too? Whew, lucky gal. They seem to have no customers. I entered the salon. Two young men seemed to be the hairdressers. Both had long shoulder length hair. One of the fellows had a couple of braids with feathers in his tresses. They both wore white sleeveless t-shirts and blue jeans. One was tall and slender and the other fellow was more stocky. They both appeared to be Italian and when I asked if I could get an appointment the one guy had a definite European accent. They reminded me of this guy:


What are you thinking? Maybe there are no clients here for a reason? Ho, lady you may so regret this adventure! He said he could do my hair right now. Maybe I should take some time out and think about this. Ohhh...my hair is so awful. Anything would be an improvement. I said O.K. He led me to the sink. He put a towel around my neck and snapped the cape into place. So far so good! Seems to know what he is doing. I closed my eyes so as not to get soap in them. I let myself relax. He bent down. I could tell that he was getting awful close because I could feel his breath and I could feel the feathers from his braids tickle my forehead. What is he doing? He proceeded to lick my forehead and immediately after that started to give my forehead a massage using his chin! Whoooo! What the heck! What in the world is going on here. This is so wrong! Do something! Say something! Why in the world are you just sitting here! You are taking politness to a whole new level! Open you eyes woman! Open eyes now!I opened my eyes. Something gray, soft and furry loomed over my head. It purred. It had a wet nose. That is what happens when real life events intrude on your dreams. I was so relieved! I was very freaked out.

That was funny! It's so funny how dreams are related to what is going on around us even though we are asleep! Silly kitty.
Mine are still terrorists.

Oh my gosh, it took me a minute to figure out it was a dream, I was thinking, what the heck, then I started laughing.

Trav said...

wow... i was getting angry, almost even ready to go hunt down these fabio hairdressers for assaulting my aunt.... that was hilarious...

Sue said...

Oh Chris, That was one of the funniest things I have read in a very long time. I literally laughed till I cried.

I was already thinking that they must have done something really extreme to your hair and that's why you weren't in church yesterday.

Thanks for the laugh!!!

Totally, 100% Hilarious! I was starting to think we were going to see a picture of you with purple hair and feathers sticking out. Then when the guy started licking your chin...I started laughing so hard. Great dream, though.
