My Psychic Dream
The night we stayed over in
before boarding the ferry to Piraeus Paros, I had a wonderful dream. A black
lab befriended me and was more like a cat rubbing against my legs. He would take
off running and then come back and show tremendous affection. I fell in love
with the dog and asked Jill if I could have him and she said yes. I met the woman
who owned the dog and she told me that he ate a very nutritious dog food called
Everest. Her husband said it was frozen pie crust. I thought to my logical self,
how odd it was that it would be frozen pie crust. I realized that if I took the
dog the owners would miss him, so I proposed that we share him and that I would
take the dog from time to time when they went on vacation. A perfect solution!
When I woke up I couldn’t wait to tell Jill about my dream because it brought back the joy of dog ownership and made me feel so happy. I told her about the Everest dog food and how crazy it was that it was frozen pie crust.
Once we were settled on the
ferry I continued reading my book, a Led Zeppelin bio. I was three sentences in
when the author started talking about their song, “Black Dog” and that it was a
reference to a black lab. Wow, a coincidence for sure, but when Jill came back
from a stroll around the ferry, she said that a woman in the lounge where we
were sitting had a takeaway pastry bag with the word EVEREST printed in big
letters on the front.
A second coincidence? It sure made me wonder, especially since I remembered all of the details of my dream so vividly, which is rare for me.
