So yeah…. I doubt I’ll be skipping a night of sleep again. The project has been turned in, after a day of finding ways to keep myself from sitting still for two minutes as to not pass out. I ended up in bed around 8 pm, and after a night of some of the oddest dreams I have ever had, I finally woke up around 9:30 this morning.
When I say strange dreams, I mean STRANGE. The only one worth sharing involves Ron Zook, Boston, and a night of awesomeness. I’m sure that line alone just grabbed your attention.
So in my dream, I had decided to take my girlfriend out for a nice meal at a restaurant I have never seen before in my life (A. Yes, I do have a girlfriend and B. I have no idea if my dream restaurant had a name). This place wasn’t in Tuscaloosa, so how or why we got there was a bit of a mystery. All I remember is being taken to a table that you had to share with your fellow customers. Think Japanese steakhouse, but with a bigger set-up.
There was live music, so I was enjoying myself in this dream world I had concocted. All of the sudden, I hear some voices starting to mumble from the back about “hey look! It’s that guy who failed at Florida!” I, being the college football fan that I am, turned around to see this man in a suit and mock turtleneck:
Yes, my lady and I shared a meal with Ronald E. Zook. Needless to say, it was a rather strange conversation, involving the fact that I went to high school with his nephew (true fact), and how Ron knew Bill Murray.
As I said, there was live music playing, so there was a nice ambiance. But, the unknown band decided to take a break, and offered the stage to anyone in the audience. Without warning, the Zooker ran to the stage, grabbed a guitar, and rocked out to Boston’s “More Than A Feeling”.
The lesson from all of this? Don’t skip out on a night of sleep, because you may regret what happens to your mind and body the following morning. Oh, and dream Zook knows his way around the guitar strings.
