wow ... kind of puts my parenting hiccups into perspective.

I remember the night that I was dispelled of the myth ... I was 9 and scared shitless of the tooth fairy. Seriously, who thought that shit up? While you are sleeping somebody will touch your pillow and take your old tooth?

So, I was scared and mom let me off the hook by telling me the truth about the tooth fairy. I made the natural leap from Tooth Fairy to Easter Bunny. But it took me a LONG time to come to the Santa realization. And I was PISSED.

I took it upon myself to inform my younger sisters at my earliest opportunity.

Shocked Wow, that's freaky- I had a dream about Chris yesterday, too!

In mine, he was sleeping in my bed, which for some strange reason was in somebody else's house-
I was supposed to help tuck him in because my covers are kinda tricky, but then I woke up...

Oh yeah, there was some kind of event going on & he was staying there instead of a hotel-
y'all were vague extras in the background, can't name names for you, sorry...

Chris, maybe your dad was shooting only a robot santa with a potty mouth.

That's freaky, if I have dreams like that moving. Shocked
Strangers in my house and paranoia don't mix.
I guess Zen's met him like an actual person so it's not that freaky.... Confused

The Easter Bunny freaked me out. Seriously? A five-six foot rabbit bouncing around the house? Carrying eggs? What if he knew I always ate the ears and tail first off of my chocolate bunny?? Would he snap?? AHHHH! And why the fuck is he hanging out with a duck???

Mom saved me from that. Thank god.

Put on your tin foil hat & think "AG tour here!"-
if we can get him back in the South, you got a chance...

I just thought it was a nice change from Gene Simmons-
not that there's anything wrong with him...

Let's see, AG & TB- now I'm waiting for the rest of the fruitbat authors to join me in dream land...

The rest? Isn't a three-way enough, zen? Twisted Evil


Hey, they weren't there at the same time!

But I did once have this dream about Douglas Adams & Elvis being in the hospital at the same time-
yeah, I'm an accidental celebrity dream stalker, could be a lot worse...

Except for the fact that "for legal reasons" his interview on Fresh Air cannot be made available on the web. Rolling Eyes
