: NOBODY wanted to
It's morning. Morning means 6:00 these days, on account of that's when the sky is light and the kids think it's daytime.
"Mm-mm," Meg says. That means good morning.
"I had the best dream," I say.
"Mm," Meg says. That means you can tell it to me if you don't mind me sleeping through it.
"Morale was really low on the Galactica - the new Galactica," I say. "We're all hanging out in the Galactica's cafeteria, which looks just like a high school cafeteria, and morale's really low. So Commander Adama decides that the thing to do is to have a drag revue."
"Mm?" Meg says. She opens one eye.
"So we're all sitting there in the cafeteria on the Galactica and the music starts and it's 'Lady Marmalade' by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya and Pink, from Moulin Rouge, and here comes Edward James Olmos as Commander Adama, with this lipstick on and fake eyelashes, in his Galactica uniform with the front stuffed, he has this pink gauze demi-cape and he's like sashaying between the tables.
"He's like, 'voulez vous coucher avec moi, ce soir, voulez vous coucher avec moi...'"
While I think knowing that little bit of information about you is priceless... I so didn't want that mental picture of Edwards James Olmos in my head. Thank you for making me laugh and slightly nauseous at the same time.
I haven't even seen Galactica, but I just had to google Commander Adama so I could visualize him in drag. Beautiful. I'll have the images in my head forever.
(Kids getting up early can be a real problem in Norway this time of year - it doesn't really get very dark at night. We've bought black blinds for both bedrooms, which allows us to sleep past 5 in the morning.)
Getting to be the first person to hear Vincent's best dreams is a fun perk of being married to him. This actually goes up there with my other favorites - the baby Muppets dream and the two vampire dreams with the super special effects. Oh, and the ones where you say "Hey, if this is a dream, then I want (random weirdness) Look, (random weirdness)!"
