The dream: multiplying babies at various locations throughout my work day; all waiting for me to bring them home.
Dream One: Two babies are sitting all alone in the shuttle seat adjacent to me. They succeed in getting my attention by waving and giggling to me. I wave back, wondering how they got there and why are these infants commuting? Where exactly are they going?
As I exit the bus, the driver won't let me off, telling me "You're not leaving them here." Who is he talking about?
Driver: "Miss, please take your babies. Now."
I am now awake and vow to never close my eyes again.
Dream Two: A meeting at work is underway and my mind is drifting. Something in the corner of the conference room catches my eye. It's a mini-pyramid of diaper-clad infants (two on bottom, one on their shoulders - all seated on top of one another). They're all smiling with pacifiers.
I LOL and look around the room. Does nobody else see this? By the time I look back in the corner, the babies have brought in three friends. It's now a 3-2-1 pyramid of babies!
I stop looking in the corner and simply excuse myself from the meeting, head down with eyes focused on the floor.
The president abruptly stops speaking and says: "Tamara, please take your babies. Now."
There will not be a Dream Three, because now I really will never, ever close my eyes again.
