I had the most odd dream this morning. But first I want to tell you about my friend, my best friend Jaki. She and I met when I first started working in a Southwestern Bell Telephone office in Montrose. We quickly clicked and have been best buds since. That was in 1981. She is also my daughter's Godmother. She still works for the telephone company in Houston and she is a black woman. I mention the color of her skin because of the strange dream.
I was working with the Obama's just after they had moved into the White House. Jaki was there with me. Together we were Michelle Obama's assistants. We helped her get dressed and stuff like that. Don't judge, it was just a dream.
We had reason to be in a big room where President Obama was holding a question and answer session. We were lying down on beds waiting to be called on. Everyone had a single bed to themselves. Jaki knew the answer to her question, to be fair she guessed, and the new Pres was most impressed. Then it was my turn. No, I didn't know the answer to mine. He was not pleased. Then I had to let the kids have my two dogs because I didn't get the question right. I had to let my beloved Annie and Sophie go off with them. I was not a happy camper.
I finally woke up and what a strange feeling that was. I was pleased to turn over in bed and feel my Annie right beside me. I fell back asleep with my arm around her.
Thank goodness for dreams. Life might be a bit boring without them!
P.S. I wonder if that somehow means the new White House puppy will be a boxer? Perhaps a rescue boxer, female. That would be cool. I'm off to write the President-elect!
