I had a lot of stressful dreams last night. I had just bought a new car, a "Jetta" but really it looked liked a Prius. We went to a club and parked it outside. When we came back out to leave all the tires were gone from the car and it had been booted. When I called the number to deal with it this woman I used to lobby with answered the phone. She looked up how much it would cost me to get my tires back and the boot off. She said "11". I said "11 dollars?" and she said "11 thousand." Apparently I had broken some bigass law.

This car problem followed me through the night in other dreams. In one I had to help this woman escape from her abusive husband while he stole all her stuff, but uh oh, my getaway car had no tires. In another, I moved into this awful house with Reem and this scary woman who had rabies kept trying to get inside to get us. She basically looked like a clown with whiteface, too much blue around her eyes and lipstick smeared big around her mouth. When we tried to get away from her, the car had no tires and we were stuck.

Finally, there was the dream where I called my mother and confessed to her of my car fuck up and that I had an $11K bill to deal with. She called the company and it turned out it was all a big mistake. All of a sudden a marching band that included my cousin Layla came marching out carrying my tires which had been painted white. They laid them next to my wheeless Jetta.

I actually just said "oh my god" out loud while laughing at the end of this dream. What a triumphant ending to a buttload of anxiety! Insane dream.

I think the lesson to be learned here is: Don't buy a Prius because they're ugly.

You knew what you were doing with the Jetta.

SophisticatedBrew said... you need new tires for your car? presenting them in a parade is a great marketing idea.

what stress and anxiety our cars and traffic cause us in our dreams! well, maybe it's something of a sign as to what we should do with the crash of the auto industry. hmmm? interpretations anyone?
