No, not the job you wish you had instead of your boring, dead end job. When you dream at night, do you ever dream that you have a strange job?
Last night, I was a buyer for a convenience store in a very trendy location across the street from some really weird looking art deco high rises. I was instructed to go to the warehouse and purchase some unique items that would sell well for this area. When I asked for further instructions on what I should buy and how much, I was told that it’s my job to know this and to get out there and do it.
So I head out to the warehouse which is both really close by and incredibly far away in a way that is only possible in dreams and it’s this huge building surrounded by similar huge buildings. Inside, it’s like the warehouse at the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” with giant shelving units stretching to the ceiling and disappearing into the fog in the distance. The shelves are almost exclusively filled with these weird crystalline statues of various shapes and sizes. I decide to buy a few different versions of the crystalline statues and bring them back to the store.
It was at this time that a song came into my head and I started singing it. I can’t remember what the song was anymore, but it was a pretty popular one. It was just the refrain over and over again. The dream switched gears after that to things that I can only capture wisps of. For instance, I’m pretty sure that at one point I was being led into battle by some famous actor.
I need to find a better dream job.
