In The Middle Of The Night

I awaken, heart pounding, terrified. The nightmare still has me in its power, so I reach out to stir my partner. "Are you okay?" he mumbles as he surfaces from sleep, then continues with a disappointed tone to his voice. "I was dreaming I was baking cakes, and now I won't be there when they come out of the oven." I feel the giggle bubbling up through my fear.

Maybe your nightmare was about not having dessert! You need to synchronize your dreams.

Interesting what concerns us in our dreams. Also made me giggle. What happened to you in your dream reminds me a bit of what happens in the chorus of the song MacArthur Park. After I read your stone, the song immediately came to mind. It always made me giggle too.

" MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain and I don't think that I can take it 'cause it took so long to bake it And I'll never have that recipe again. Oh, no!"

Thanks for sharing this. I know that sort of nightmare, great response from your partner. Hope he drifted back to his cakes.
