I just had a work dream. I have those not so often.
In this dream I was working on preparations for a wedding. Instead of working here or in the city at Saipua HQ I was in a big architecture office. There were lots of women with severe haircuts hanging around.
I decided to add something to this wedding. Snakes.
So I went to a pet store and bought 7 harmless garden snakes of various sizes. I kept them in a taped up box in my closet. They kept escaping; this was the stressful part of the dream.
In my plan, we would release these snakes on the head table and they would add a mysterious dark element to florals.
My boss did not like this idea. She said the bride would "freak out" over the snakes. I told her to take her Scandanavian accent, minimalistic outfit and severe blond hair and shove it! Office drama ensued.
In the end we just released the snakes for the pre-dinner photos, and the bride never saw them.
We've been at Worlds End enjoying the start of autumn, my favorite season. If I could live in perpetual autumn I would. Aaron is here and we are taking lots of walks, mulching, talking about the universe, compiling a list of current country music tropes and researching Tonya Harding on our phones.
