Had a dream my bike got jacked

On my way to my first day of a new job I stopped into a store real quick came out and poof my vintage Guerciotti was gone. Damn! So I get on the cell and call the GF only to have the operator come on and say my number was disconnected due to an out standing loan. Loan? What loan. I have absolutely zero debt, always pay cash for used cars, payed the student loan off years ago. WTH. So the operator tells me that she will transfer me to the bank LOL. I hung up and started walking. I didn't have the number to my new office in my phone so I was gonna be late on my first day of work. Great!

I think that's when the tornadoes started or something like that. Oh and there was some kids on skateboards too.

I checked this morning the Guerc is still hanging on the ceiling hook.

All dreams make sense. They are like puzzles so you have to figure them out.

Yeah I actually like the ones that are off the wall and crazy. Typically I don't remember the details but I do remember having the real feeling I lost a bike which happened to me about 20 years ago with my then new Puegot

My dreams usually start out with world domination and end with me in front of a firing squad.

Just sayin.

During my bouts of world domination, I hand out spam and cigarettes. Then some damn mutant tosses a flare into the oil tank.

My friend told me to find the meaning of his dream he had and it was pretty spot on. Ever since I looked up mine and I almost wish I didn't but it isn't always right.

I know the feeling. Once we were touring California's Central Coast. We stayed at the home of a friend's friend in San Luis Obipso.. No one bothered to secure their bikes in her garage. That might have been ok, but the garage was not secured either.. Throughout the night I had a couple dreams that my bike was being stolen.

i had a dream that my bike was run over in a car park whilst I was opening the car to put it in. Some idiot reversed right over it and snapped it. That was the first nightmare I had had for many years.

No.



Anyway, I had a dream a few nights ago that I was in a haunted house and it was fixin' to turn into a full-blown nightmare, but then Daniel Tosh from Tosh.0 showed up and we baked a cake and rode a train through the house and the ghosts weren't scary any more. It was great.
