the daily doggie is already written in my head.... anD it gave me a headache...
i have to preface this with some facts.
i do not need any clothing sent to me--- i have arrived at an occupation and age when if i am clean and covered i do not need to be fashionable.. my "uniform " of dark pants, & turtleneck with an extremely fancy hermes scarf --ann gave me 20 years ago--- add the heavy gold necklace i hardly ever wear because it has no breakaway-- and you have it. that is what you get.
i do dream in color--
I have no qualms about speaking in front of a group
and i am looking forward to the mass veternarians dinner at which i am to go for an award.
i used to worry about being fashionable-- HOWEVER it hardly ever had any reall effect on me...
a shopping cart has become my walker when i need to walk any distance---
so here is the headache producing dream ( WITH THE EVENT THAT CAUSED THE CONCEPT)
it was noon and i needed a blouse/shirt for a dinner at 7pm ( PROBABLY THE VETERNARIANS DINNER)
** i went to dunhams (THE ONE STORE IN WAERVILLE MAINE OF "NEW YORK QUALITY" while i was at colby college-- )
**they sold hathaway shirts- seconds- in the basement( hathaway shirts have to bE right up therefor quality)
**dunhams had grown to involve elevators and extra help-- very helpful ( LIKE LL BEAN HELP)
the hathaway shirts had 4 hole buttons( TRUE AND THE ASSORTMENT IN DUNHAMS USUALLY INVOLVED HUGE SHIRTS)
**I figured i would buy some for sheilas husband who is very large/tall --- so tall that she can not buy a house with an lower antique ceiling ( SHE IS REALLY CRITICAL AROUND HERE AND I WISH SHE WOULD FIND A HOUSE AND STOP THINKING SHE LIVES IN FORIDA)
**and if they did not fit we coudl paint( the DOGFEST PAINTING PROJECT) for a mail call(sheila said she was deserting us for florida tuesday)--
**I had trouble finding dunhams which was on the one main street of waterville (BUT THERE WAS A STRET IN EDINBURGH SCOTLAND THAT WAS AT A FORK IN THE ROAD-- AND I ALWAYS FIGURED I WOULD GO DOWN THAT STREET SOMETIME)
**i got to dunahms and found a nice pink and blus knit shirt tha wold go with everything i already owned
at this point ihad 2 dogs with me-- and only one leash ( THERE IS HARDLY EVER A LEASH AND VEST IN MY CAR BECAUSE IT IS THE ONE PLACE PEOPLE CAN GO TO GET ONE IN AN EMERGENCY)
**one dog- bentley- behaved perfectly-- other- a tall gangly female--- probably a frecklebutt- flipped around on the end of this short leash while i tried to check out( I SAW SOMEONE YESTERDAY TRY AND GET SOME PUPS IN THE V PEN- WITH A SHORT LEASH- AND THEY WERE TUGGING ON IT IN AN UNAPPROVESD MANNER)
***the shirt was a medium and i needed large or extra large (I GAINED 4 POUNDS OVER DOGFEST)
***as i approached the elevator(THAT NEVER EXISTED IN THE REAL DUNHAMS) i had to walk past a chair where some guy ( MAYBE AN INSPECTOR FROM THE ADI ACCREDITATION COMMITTEE?) was lecturing on dog behavior- with 3 german shephards lying perfectly at his feet.
***i could not get that female dog onto the elevator... so i handed the leash to a very helpful clerk (FRIDAY I WAS AT A STORE AND Walked TO WHERE THE SHOPPING CARTS USUALLY ARE- AND THEY WERE NOT- A NICE PERSON GOT ONE FOR ME)
***i told bentley to lie down and he did (WITH THIS ADI INSPECTOR WATCHING)
***teh female got loose in the store- so i went looking for her-(LOCATING A LOOSE DOG IS A PROBLEM IN ANY WORLD)
***i handed the pink and blue shirt to another helpful employee and asked her to replace it with atl least a large which i could wash and stretch of better an x-lat\rge (MY WEIGHT GAIN STILL ON MY MINE)
***she disappeared up the eevator---3 hours later she had not returned - ( BEING UNDER A TIME DEADLINE ALWAYS BOTHERS ME-- FROM THE MOVIE BUSINESS-- AT 10:04AM YOU WILL MAKE THIS DOG BARK 3 TIMES... KIND OF THING.. TO BEATING THE BOSTON TRAFFIC TO GET TO A STUDIO FOR A 9AM CALL TIME- TO THE PHONE RINGING AND THEY HANG UP BEFORE I CAN ANSWER.-- SAME PROBLEM...)
***i tried to page her but the mic wold not work( WE ALL KNOW ABOUT THE MIC AND MAIL CALL PROBLEMS)
***i went looking for the person with my pink and blue shirt and she was on the 4th floor talking with other salespeopel( COMES FROM THE WANT AD OFFICE WHERE PEOPLE WOULD CHECK IN THE TIME CLOCK AND THEN SIT DOWN AND HAVE THIER BREAKFAST AND I TRIED TO INSTILL YOU CHECK IN YOU ARE ON THE CLOCK WORKING NOT SOCIALIZZING)
**i got the shirt-- a large-- washed it in a big black tub(THAT HAS TO BE THE KETTLE OUTSIDE THE TEEPEE THAT I FORGOT TO FILL WITH PURPLE DYE FOR THE MONKEY FIST DYE)
went to the dinner -- speaking for 7 minutes-- no problem
***when we went to leave - i was drivng- and smashed a vw bug into a nice suv because my boots were too big and wet For me to get to the brake pedal ( HITTING THE VW BIG WAS THE NIGHT SOMEONE IN LYNFIELD SMASHED MY VW THRU THE FENCE---)
***we stayed overnight becasue i was worried about megan driving in the dark she is an excellent driver (BUT I WAS AFRAID HER BOOTS WOULD BE WET)
***we --- sheila, tracy, megan and i were there with 2 dogs and had to stay overnight in a room with one kingsized bed ( THAT HAS TO BE THE MAILCALL WITH SHEILA TRACY AND I ON THE FLOOR WHEN BAILEY GOT ON THE ALREADY CROWDED BIG BARKER BED)
and i woke up with a headache !
how many of my neurosis could i pack into one dream?...
