To Sleep Perchance to Dream

I had the most disturbing dream last night. It actually kept me from going back to sleep.

In my dream, I noticed that there was a little bit of green in my belly button. I pulled on it and nothing happened. Then I got a really good grip on it and pulled the little green sprout, and the large seed it was sprouting from, and the 2-3 inch tiny thin root out of my belly button. I had to grip the sprout just right and tug for a while, but it finally came out. The seed looked about the size of a large grapefruit seed. I was both relieved to have gotten it out and completely repelled by the fact that it had been there. And how had it gotten that big?!?

Seriously, this dream was worse than any when I've been chased by bad guys in the dark, been a month late for a college final, or been in the middle of some other catastrophe.

That is by far worse than the "I'm at work, and why am I naked dream!"

Three things come to mind:

It's maternal.

It's maternal but with the twist of mother nature, and you just want to garden. (It is almost spring time and there are lots of hints to your pshyce about gardening at every store.)

You've either had gall bladder removal laproscopically, or your body is telling your mind that you will. Because, you know, they pull it out through the belly button. I have a thin one inch scar bellow mine as proof. But don't ask me to show it to you...because I will!

That's really disturbing! I can see why you couldn't go back to sleep.

EE-PEE-CRAY!!!!! And to think I was sleeping just inches away dreaming of Orcas swimming on the lawn @ Gas Works Park. Dang, you're an odd one sister Mac.
