Dream #24: Lost Her Mind from Too Much Tea at the Mountaintop Department Store
03.29.2010 § Leave a comment
I’m at a cafe having lunch with my mom. She’s talking about Helen as if she was my girlfriend, saying that the poor thing has lost her mind from drinking so much tea (Four cups a day!)
Now I’m on a bus tour with my dad, driving backwards at top speed with that frighteningly jerky sliding-a-milk-gallon-across-the-kitchen-table style inertia up a mountain, and I’m afraid we’ll fly off the top of the mountain when we finally reach it. There is a scenic view of something ambiguous between a pond and parking lot, just like at Konogayama with Nihon-ji.
The bus driver sees his pal running naked though the woods near the parking lot on our way up. We have to pick him up and take him back down. They chat for a bit, wasting our time, not to mention that we have to start the tour all over.
I guess we are just supposed to hike back down afterward. Hiking down actually still looks exciting, though, until we get to the top of the mountain only to find that there has been a department store there. How embarrassing. I figure that I won’t be telling anyone about this part of the adventure.
