Last night, I dreamt that I was going to get a new tattoo. I was planning on having some sort of intricate design done on my side that included some sort of fantasy-inspired bird. (I don’t even know what I mean by this, but my mind pictures some sort of badass dragon with feathery wings…Just assume it was TOTALLY cool and unique, and NOTHING LESS THAN ABSOLUTE MAGNIFICENCE!!!!!)
I was nervous, but excited! It was going to be done in two sessions, and the first session was a couple of hours long. I lied there, patiently, as the tattoo artist went to work. AT this point, I should have known this was a dream, because I didn’t feel any pain. After the two hours (which of course passed by in a matter of seconds, and in a montage of dream-picture scenes), I walked to a mirror to admire the handiwork.
What I beheld was NOT the original tattoo that I pictured. Where was my amazing and gorgeous artistic rendering of a Phoenix-like creature??
Somehow, due to a series of miscommunications that I can NO LONGER remember, I had a Tweety-bird on my side! A TWEETY BIRD!!
And a chipmunk (not just any chipmunk, but “Dale” from the Looney Tunes duo “Chip and Dale”) who was upside down, next to Tweety!!
And apparently, the second session I had scheduled was to add Chip next to Dale! How did this happen!?? I was dumbstruck in my dream, and didn’t know what to say. What COULD I do, after all! There were two giant Looney Tunes characters on my side AND belly!! THE CHIPMUNK WAS AS BIG AS MY HEAD….IN THE MIDDLE OF MY STOMACH!!!!!
I awoke soon after, and immediate checked myself over for any new, unwanted tattoos. I think it’s safe to say that my dream was really a nightmare! I have nothing against Looney Tunes, as long as they remain on the television or in children’s books.
