Friday, February 21, 2003 AD Strange Dream I very rarely have interesting dreams, and I very rarely have a dream that's even a little scary, so this one seems worth reporting. I was talking with Sarah, the under house parlour maid/soup kitchen habitue/scullery maid/actress/son's mistress/nursery maid/ex-chauffer's wife from "Upstairs Downstairs" (I think this was during the nurserymaid phase) because I had found some things that I thought might belong to her. I felt a little reluctant telling her about them, because I know I'd get to keep them if they weren't hers, but they were hers. Then we were at the front door, which was neither 165 Eaton Place, nor my house (but the view from the door was more like my neighborhood), when a man stopped to deliver something. Then we turned to look at the funnel cloud in the distance. It was a cheesy, cartoonish, multicolor sci-fi effects funnel cloud with things zapping out of it and stuff. At first it was just vaguely interesting, but not quite real because of the cheesy, cartoonish, multicolor sci-fi effects. Then it started getting bigger and closer and I was more apprehensive. Finally it kind of exploded into a flash flood rushing toward us. It was quickly reaching the level of the doorway. A man in a baseball cap swept past amid the torrent. He reached out a hand like he was reaching for help, but he was several yards away and moving too fast, so there was nothing to be done for him. Sarah and the delivery man seemed to be paralyzed, so I grabbed both of them to pull them inside and head upstairs. Then I woke up.
OK, take your best shot at interpreting that! Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 2/21/2003 09:43:00 PM
