Hey guess what? I had a bad dream about spiders last night! Imagine that. How would I get such a notion?
In my dream I was sitting at my desk at home, playing on the computer. I suddenly glanced to my left and found a thick spiderweb starting at my chair and reaching up to a funky gothic chandelier I had over my head. I jumped out of the way and for the rest of the dream I felt very paranoid because I couldn’t find the spider. I think I even thought in the dream, “The spider must be as big as the one on my poster.”
So I started looking for bug spray to arm myself with, but couldn’t find it. I rummaged through the closet where I usually keep the stuff, but every other can was falling out. I finally found something, but then thought I should catch the spider in a container. Because I had it in my mind that it was a giant spider, I remember grabbing a big bowl from the cupboard. I kept glancing over near my desk to see if the spider had come out of hiding, and at one point I got some web on me and I was so afraid my struggling would cue the spider to crawl down to me.
Then I woke up and I had fifteen minutes to get up, get dressed and get to work. Now when I look at the spider decoration on my window, I think of that dream. Blergh!
