The Boss (not Bruce unfortunately)

My friend Alex's boss haunted my dreams last night. Because I don't know what he looks like, he changed forms from one creepy older gray/white-haired man I've seen at the capitol/in court/on the street to another.

Alex's office looked the same as it does in real life but it was located at the top of the Sears Tower. The elevator up required you to be strapped in like a ride at Six Flags. I had a little girl with me who was too short for the straps so I had to hold on to her for 35 floors (yes, specifically 35, though the Sears Tower is certainly taller than that).

I was supposed to go out to dinner with Alex and his coworkers but when I got to his office no one would talk to me. Alex looked at me annoyed and said "I'm working and I'll find you when I'm done." I sat down and it was cold and there were no blankets and I didn't have a cardigan. I found an art magazine to read and The Boss came over and started mocking me and art itself. I had some smartass response that made him laugh. There was evil gleaming in his eyes.

When we walked to the restaurant the streets looked like Chicago and it was winter. I realized that the little girl left her jacket behind and we had to go back up the elevator. The Boss laughed sarcastically and sneered "good luck in finding us."

it should be noted - in case it's not obvious - that I think The Boss in real life is a total d-bag that exploits the eff out of Alex. Lame!

Hahahaha omg I though in your comment you were talking about Bruce for a second and my stomach flipped over and I was like "she does NOT think that!"

Alex better shape up! Jk, jk. This dream is hilarious. I find that sometimes if I'm at an event where nobody will talk to me, hanging out with the kids is a good solution. They'll talk about ANYTHING.

I love your idea of what Alex's boss looks like. DIfferent villains all rolled into one. Was the Great America ride The Giant Drop??

I think it was called "The Edge" when the ride first came out- and ten it fell and killed some people and had to go away for a few years for "reassessing". yikes!
