Should I Be Worried?

This morning, when I woke up, Ed was right outside my bedroom door.

"I was just dreaming about you," I said.

"Me too!" he said.

In my dream, Ed and I were taking some kind of calculus class together. I didn't understand the material presented on the first day - I was missing some background - but I intended to research it once I got home. I knew that Ed would be happy to help me with it, but the thought was intolerable. As I was walking out of class, I was thinking about how he would say, "I can think of nothing I'd rather do than teach you this stuff," and it made me feel deeply annoyed.

In Ed's dream, he was trying to get ready for work, and before he got dressed, a girl from our tennis class came over, and she and I were conspiring to make him late for work. In fact, when he consulted his watch, it was 8:30!

I dream about annoying, unwanted help from Ed. He dreams about being thwarted and having his space invaded.

Hah. I dreamed about having trouble getting into or out of my apartment (not this one) because it was being thronged by drunk college students with guns; the mysterious appearance of the mother of a girl I went to h.s. with demanding I drive her daughter to school at 7:15 a.m.; not being able to find my toothbrush; and then finding out from this girl's mother that I had embarrassed myself the previous evening at a dinner function by standing on the table and singing a song derogatory to the guest of honor, Michael Dell.

We better hope this shit means nothing.
