COVID dreams

From what I hear, everyone has had a dream in which they find themselves naked in a public place (and at school forgetting their locker combination, or sitting for an exam in a course they never attended…). For me, one of them is delivering newspapers and not remembering if I’m supposed to deliver to a particular house. (With over 100 to remember and it being 50 years ago, plus many of the houses along the lake being torn down and replaced, you’d think my sleeping self would cut me some slack.)

A co-worker asked the other day if anyone had had the dream where you find yourself in a restaurant without a mask. I said, “Oh, yes! You have too?” She asked if others in the dream were wearing masks and I said, “No, that was the scary part! A whole restaurant full of people without masks, even when we weren’t eating!”

Her dream was the same – a restaurant full of maskless people, and we tried to find a way to get out safely. A new pandemic nightmare. How about you? Have you had this dream or another recurring pandemic nightmare? Tell us in the comments.

Daylight Losing Time

Just when it is getting light enough to ride to work both ways without lights, it is time to set our clocks ahead by an hour, plunging me back into darkness every morning on the way to work. Are we in GMT -6 hours, or not?

We are a group of friends who ride bikes. Some of us are fast, some of us are slow, all of us are half-fast. In 2018, one of us rode coast to coast across the US. It was so much fun, he's doing it again in 2022! If we meet Sal Paradise, we'll let you know.

  1. It’s past the time to abandon Daylight Savings Time. It no longer serves a purpose. As to the restaurant dreams? It’s been a year since we have dined in a restaurant. Some outside dining last summer and fall. However, my cooking skills have improved dramatically and I find that Hello Fresh offers high quality meals, (that I get to prepare), for $10 per person.

  2. Steve, I have had many dreams that I am out without a mask, typically a work conference or family camp large group situation, and I am horrified! How did I forget? Who has witnessed my blunder? Then I notice no one else is wearing masks and I am confused and more alarmed, but mostly embarrassed. I guess I’m fortunate not to be terrified but it is a little like getting caught naked. I have, in real life, entered a store a few times without a mask…so embarrassing. I’m distracted by getting my bags, phone, keys, etc. , or just distracted. The worst was when no one said anything and I slowly realized my embarrassing mistake. More recently, staff has stopped me at the door. I always thanked them!
