Thursday night I had a dream.
A CLASSIC MAZ dream.
I was in a parking lot, much like Target. I put my car in park, left it running, and hopped out leaving the driver door open.
I was in a panic because I had forgotten to put my TWO shopping carts in the cart holder. I walked about 10 feet away from the car, while pushing the 2 carts. The closest "Return Carts Here" was across the huge, mostly empty and sloping parking lot. I hated to leave my car unattended, so I aimed the carts and pushed them with all my strength. One cart perfectly parked itself in the correct area, but the other cart veered off course and took out the only few cars in the parking lot, causing major damage and car decapitation.
I looked around and nobody was watching.
I turned to run back to my car and flee the scene.....
All of a sudden.....
This tiny dog flew through the air, into the drivers side of my car, and landed on the gas pedal.
My car sped forward and became an accordion, when hitting the brick wall.
I furiously stomped like a two year old into a nearby building.
The man inside saw the whole thing. He explained to me that it was his dog, "what are the odds of him landing on your gas pedal? Crazy! That is $4,000 dollars worth of damage..."
I was mad! I was literally seeing red, red filtered vision. "You WILL pay!"
The blond "Shirley Temple style" hair guy shook his curls and calmly said,
Then as he spread out his arms to present the items in the glass case before him...
"You can have $4,000 worth of Chuck E Cheese prizes."
At this point, I realized I was in the biggest Chuck E Cheese in the world. There were no windows or doors.
In a slight panic that quickly became anger, I yelled "I don't want $4,000 worth of crappy prizes! You will pay me money!"
The loop curls swished back and forth as he quietly said "you WILL pick your prizes now"
And then I woke up.
