Needing Two Aspirin

Since my parents are in town for a little while, I thought I could share with you some of my favorite posts...Most of these many of you won't have seen...and those that have, hopefully you will enjoy nonetheless....

This morning I was reminded of a conversation I had not to long ago with a very good friend of went something like this:

Bogart: Dude, what's up? You seem distracted.

Unnamed Friend: My wife is not talking to me...she has not spoken to me in a couple of days.

Bogart: What did you do?

Unnamed Friend: I cheated on her.

Bogart: YOU DID WHAT???

Unnamed Friend: No, not like her dream. She had a dream that I cheated on her and now she is mad at me.

Bogart: Seriously?

Unnamed Friend: Yes, seriously. She is very mad. I had to buy her flowers and apologize. I still
don't know what I did wrong, but she says that is part of the problem.

Bogart: Dude...

Unnamed Friend: I know.

Bogart: She had a dream...A DREAM...that you cheated on her. You did not actually touch another woman, but she is mad at you for cheating on her...While you both slept in the same bed, not involving you, but rather some fantastical person in her head?

Unnamed Friend: I am really confused.

Bogart: Me too...

Unnamed Friend: My head hurts.

Never try to understand women...we are like a puzzle.

And, sometimes we change the rules, then you have to start all over again :)

EEek, I can get jealous of my hunky hubby occasionally, but I would never get mad at a DREAM... usually if i have a dream with him in it, I'M the one hes with , not some nofaced bimbo:)

I have hated my husband for hours follwing dreams like that.

They seemed so real!

I know, we are so complex as a species...but don't tell me that men haven't had sex dreams that when they woke up were bummed that they didn't really happen!

My wife punched me as soon as soon as awoke one morning. I was startled and asked her what that was all about.
She said that in a dream she had I told her to do it.
I think she was mad that I unintentionally farted under the sheets a few minutes after we went to bed the night before.

It pains me to say this, but if someone can get that out of whack over a dream, I'd say therapy might be in order.
