I come to you for a little dream analysis.
I was backstage—felt like people were singing on stage (no idea what, I couldn’t hear them), while we were hanging out in back waiting to perform. I was really wildly calm which is very unlike me because before performances, I am actually terrified. No one seemed to be particularly concerned that we didn’t know the music, but instead I was painting my toenails. Well, you have to look good if you are a star, I guess.
Then a man I know in real life (not really KNOW, but recognize and have chatted with, etc) is on his cell phone wandering through backstage. I think he’s attractive—at very least, interesting. I take notice.
Suddenly I hear an actual line of music, “And the devil will drag you under…” from the song “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat” from Guys and Dolls.
And then I woke up.
I can’t stop hearing that one line – it just keeps circling my brain.
What the hell? Most women would insert a little Bolero or R&B-inspired musical interlude when they see a good looking man in a dream. Nope. Not me. I insert warnings with religious overtones from a musical I haven’t seen in years (and a Glee episode I haven’t seen since it aired).
