they call me the streak: a friday funny


Last night I dreamt that I was taking a shower in a huge studio apartment. I could see the living space, a bed, a kitchen, and the front door as I was sudsing up my hair.

Of course, in walked the entire Obama family. Barak totally ignored me, the kids ran in, and Michelle pranced right by. The president asked a question to someone in the apartment, and I knew the answer, so I responded while I quickly tried to rinse off. He said thank you.

So I’m standing there, motionless and naked in the shower, and I didn’t have a towel. I didn’t want to streak across to the bed area without permission first, so I said, “Psst! Madame Obama!” I did this in a very loud whisper, and I have no idea why I called her madame. 

“Psst! Madame Obama! Do you want me to go get some clothes on?”

She looked at me like I was an idiot and said, “Yes, I would like for you to do that.”

I felt extremely embarrassed the whole rest of the dream.

Sweet Sarah from left a link in yesterday's post because she is honoring Kimba's challenge to stay off the internet today. I wish I had known about the challenge myself.

Check out Sarah's funny:

I had some crazy dreams last night, but mine weren't of the funny variety (wish they had been)! Maybe it's this crazy weather!

Not sure I'll have a Friday Funny today...but ya never know. I could be back here in a little bit checking out the others and be inspired!

There was an article in The New Yorker last year about how much people dream about Obama. I guess it is quite a phenomenon. I am a Ron Paul girl, but I dreamt about Hilary once!

my favorite part of the story-telling here is how you say, "Of course, in walked the Obama family." i mean, "of course" who else would have walked in while you were nakedly vulnerable and showering in a wall-less studio apartment? "of course" it's the president and his madame. i laughed out loud this morning over my oatmeal at that one.

mrs. haines, you are indeed a fine writer, but you're also a hell of a storyteller. the former is a jewel of a craft; the latter a gift some do and some don't possess. HOWEVER, one person containing a combination of the two? well, that's about as rare as finding early dylan on vinyl or hearing tongues in a southern baptist church. it just don't happen much.

keep sending down the golden flakes from on high, lady. i'm stuffin' 'em in my pockets and throwin' 'em at the neighbor kids.

    hamster, sometimes when you comment, I go back and read what I've written excited to see what you've mentioned. You're my brother. Tell your bride I love her, too, and I can't wait for our place to be done so y'all can come, and I can see whether or not she grew out her hair and whether or not you grew back the wombat. I'm going to keep a journal going of all the many good quotes, and this time, we are going to freaking read poetry the whole weekend.

Oh my! Now that would be a freaky dream. :) Makes me wonder what you were thinking about last week. I find that my dreams are bits and pieces of things that have been tumbling around in my brain. It's great that you called her Madame Obama. :)
