The Dream

January 14, 2013



It’s been a while since I’ve had a really striking dream that has stuck with me for a while. I just love dreams since they’re so very like watching television, only I get to star in some of the shows.

This one was so funny to me that I woke up and told my brain to remember to share it with Lloyd. You will not find it as funny, but that’s ok.

I’m pretty sure I was strongly influenced by this heartbreaking/heartwarming cartoon that has a small amount of swearing, so be warned.

In a nutshell, I woke up and the cats were in the room, but there were a lot of them. A lot of them, and they were all Ralphs or Wallys or Emmys. I hollered to Lloyd, but he was no help.

I went downstairs to find that an evil military man had begun world domination by poorly redecorating my house with the aid of Deborah. As I looked around at the obviously just-made paintings and tacky curtains, he turned into a cat. I grabbed him by the scruff of the neck to throw him out, but not before asking him, “Why all the cats?” He answered that the original cats were supposed to be vaporized, but he had the gun backwards so it was set to ‘clone’.


I know it’s not funny to you, but it was hilarious to me!

      Mom, they are from the program I used to draw- Notability. I took screenshots from the iPad. 🙂

    Ha! I’m glad the dream was a funny dream & not terrifying….it could have gone either way.

    Funny dream!
    I have only had one funny dream that I can remember, and I have already told you about it.
    What are the icons in the bar at the top of the drawing for?

    “What are we going to do tonight, Deborah?”
    “The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the WORLD!”
