On Food and Dreams (Or, Some Fava Beans and a Nice Chianti)

100% true. The other day, my husband receives a call from a friend of his with the following question:

Do you and Wendy own an abandoned oil rig in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico?

Here is where things get interesting (because that question wasn't interesting enough). The guy explains a dream he had the night before, where my husband and I had converted an abandoned oil rig into a 5-star resort. The rooms were above sea level to provide a water view (what else?) while the rest of the hotel was underwater and included the finest restaurant.

The gist of the dream was that we had lured him out there with the promise of the finest cuisine in the Gulf (because there are so many choices). Once seated in the restaurant, we told him the specialty of the night was meat and that he was the main course.

Yes, ladies and husband and I were cannibals.

My husband's reply to all this...

Dude, before you went to bed, what did you eat?

This is my husband's explanation for all bad dreams...the food. (I want to note for the record that our cannibal cuisine had earned us 5-star status.)

What about you? Can you associate your strange dreams with what you ate the night before? Have you had any dreams that can trump this one? If they're porn-free, I invite you to share. I'm sure it would give my husband's friend comfort to know he's not the only crazy person out there.

Having said that, if you have a medium build - not too fatty and not too lean - I'd love to invite you over for dinner.


  1. I'm not going anywhere where long-pork is on the menu!

  2. Cannibal dreams, cool! Last night I dreamed I saw my profile in a mirror and realized my nose was so long the tip reached my chin. My sleeping self never knew my nose was so long, and I panicked. When I woke up, I wasn't sure if my nose really that long or not. Double checked in the bathroom mirror, and felt relieved. Weird!

    1. Definitely weird. Just envisioning you checking your nose out on the mirror makes me laugh. Thanks...this will definitely comfort the crazies :-)

  3. I hear you and your husband make a killer leg of larry and macaroni and chad.
