Dreaming of Fish and Ice Cream

Yesterday evening I must have dozed off in front of the TV.

But then I had this really strange dream.

I was at some place that had a giant outdoor fish tank. And the tank was full of sting rays!

In a field nearby some men were playing with a ball and a bat. It looked a lot like the English game of rounders. But almost all the men on one team were wearing funny looking beards. Bushy beards, straggly beards, pathetic little pointy beards. Frankly it made them look rather ridiculous.

And then one of the men without a beard hit the ball way high in the air and it landed in the fish tank!

Was that the point of their game, I wondered?

I was worried that the ball might have hurt some of the sting rays. What would PETA say? But the men playing ball didn't seem to care. The team with beards looked all sad and dejected and slunk off the field. But the other team went wild, jumping up and down and laughing and squealing and patting the man who had hit the ball.

Then they gave him some ice cream.

Yes. Ice cream!

Bizarre, huh?

What does it all mean?

Fish. Beards. Ice cream.

What would Freud say?

PS. I do hope no fish were injured in the making of this dream.

It was Häagen-Dazs vanilla.

Funny, I had that dream too! At one point I thought that the strange men with the beards would be happy, but it was not to be. I awoke from the dream with a strange craving for Smith Brothers cough drops.

Wow. You and I are having synchronized dreams? That's seriously weird. I must have been reading your blog too much. Were any fish hurt in your dream?

Doc, one day you must explain to us all why you use that name. i know it's not your real name. Or is this some joke or reference that everyone gets except me?

Senator Tillerman, I do not feel I am at liberty to disclose that at this date and time.
