I am both thrilled and embarrassed to share this dream.
I dreamed that I was competing in the Olympics (as if that weren't enough!) and the team that was opposing me was Mötley Crüe. And I just happened to be wearing a pink tshirt with Mötley bassist Nikki Sixx's face on it. The boys were competing for "charity" in the Olympics.
I finally worked up the courage to talk to them. I found my old issue of some British music magazine that had Darth Vader on the cover. The magazine had a story in it about how various members of metal bands acted in a recreation of Star Wars; Nikki played Vader.
When I got close to the boys and asked for their autographs they ignore me at first, but then Nikki stops. "What is that?" he asks about my magazine. When I show him he is awed and keeps saying "Wow". "I haven't seen one of these in years." I think he says something like "This was a really important time in my life."
He gets all the guys in the band back to sign it. When I get the magazine back it appears more like a hardcover book and it is filled with messages. The message from Nikki is long and rambly but says my name repeatedly and includes the phrase "keep hope alive."
He then goes and gets me from the van the exact same pink Nikki Sixx tshirt I am already wearing. I think to myself, I thought you were the smartest in the band.
