Now my fictional life sucks.

This morning I had a dream that I was grocery shopping. It took forever.. I just kept walking from aisle to aisle, never finding anything that I really wanted, but occasionally picking up items I thought might be good, only to return them to the shelf, and push the cart onward. It was one of the most boring dreams I’ve had in years. After what seemed like hours, I came to the toy aisle (the store looked a lot like the Rivertown Meijer, so I’m assuming it was there, or its equivalent in my fictional dream universe.). In the toy aisle, I ran across a shelf filled with twin-packs of the original Transformers, and I was overjoyed. Soon Andy (who appeared out of nowhere) and I were searching through the choices. Each box had two Transformers, and they had different combinations, so we were searching for specific matches. I ended up with 3 boxes: Soundwave and Shockwave, Megatron and I don’t recall who he was with, and Optimus Prime without any second item. [I also distinctly recall seeing: Blaster in many of the boxes.] Anyway, when I found Megatron, and was all excited about it, a big booming voice said [from nowhere]:

“You are a huge nerd!”

Then I woke up. I remember when I used to dream about girls… My subconscious sucks.

  1. The number of times you dreamt of girls was eclipsed by the number of times you dreamt of nerdiness. It’s funny that you posted about a dream, I have a post in the making aboutmy dream last night. It was… Dumb. The dream, that is. Aw, heck: the post will be dumb, too.

  2. Whoa! Seeing Shockwave reminded me that I had him as a toy when I was a kid. He rocked! It was friggin’ big and had a battery pack so that while he was transformed into a gun you could pull the trigger it would make noise and light up. That was my favorite toy… for a couple of weeks.

  3. I always really, really wanted Shockwave. I never had him, or Megatron (I think my parents were a bit anti-gun). But between my brother and me, we had Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Soundwave, Bumblebee (the only one I still have), Trailbreaker, Mirage, Ironhide, Blaster, DInobots:Slag, Grimlock, Snarl, and Sludge, Lazerbeak, Ravage, Rumble, Dirge, Thrust, Insecticon Kickback, Triple changers Blitzwing and Astrotrain… Damn, we were spoiled as kids. [and yes, I had to look a few of them up to get their names.] If I could have just one now, I’d want Optimus Prime.

  4. Yeah, guess how many I had. Yep, I had *one*. Guess which one? Optimus Prime? nope. Megatron? nope. Huffer? Yes!! Huffer? The smallest possible Transformer! The one whose job it was to pull Optimus Prime’s trailer (although I can’t imagine that Huffer could really do that).

    Stupid lack of Transformers.
