Self wanted to see “Jack Reacher,” but The Man was in an awful hurry, and self still had to pick up a replacement contac lens from the eye doctor. The Man ended up watching the movie by himself. Then, self wanted to watch “Jack Reacher” today, but The Man says he’d rather watch “Hitchcock.” Self isn’t all that enthused about “Hitchcock.” Should she just go by herself and watch “Jack Reacher”? But what about scary/disturbing opening scene? Self doesn’t need a new nightmare. The one she had two nights ago. In that dream, a little girl of about seven or eight starts clinging to her, as if self owed her something, when actually self didn’t know who the girl was, and plotted to escape from her. The little girl’s face at some point turned black, and her lips turned green, and, and — SELF, CUT IT OUT! THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME FOR YOU TO MULL OVER THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE LITTLE GIRL’S APPEARANCE IN YOUR DREAM, TONIGHT!
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
