Last night I had a very strange dream. It was a hell of a dream! The dream was so good that I rolled over and called into work. There was something unsettling about the dream now that I’m wide awake and thinking about it…

I dreamed I was fucking my English professor from Spelman College. I haven’t seen or spoken to this woman in ten plus years. When I was in her class I wasn’t lusting or crushing on her. I always thought she was pretty, but she is old enough to be my mother. For a visual of her just think a young Toni Morrison with jet black locs…

In the dream she and I go to a cabin that she owns in the woods and we have sex. The alarm on my phone woke me up from this dream and I remember thinking, Damn….I’m too old to be having wet dreams! Even still I called into work, laid back down, and fell right back to sleep….something that NEVER happens with me….an insomniac.

My question is what exactly does this dream mean? Does it mean anything?

I’m honestly spooked.

On another note, my Friday paycheck is a FREE check. This means I don’t have any bills or anything to pay out of the check. I didn’t realize it until yesterday, but August is a three check month for me. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me because my check is about three thousand dollars after taxes, 401k, and health insurance comes out. This works out well because I think I will try to surprise Sapphire while she is away.

Sapphire picked Croatia as the place she wants to visit. I’m going to look into resorts and plane tickets. I figure we can go either later this year or the first of the year.

She also asked me about getting a dog.

I’ve been on the fence about getting a dog. On one hand I want a dog too. On the other hand, I own this house, which means I’m responsible for irremovable shit stains, piss smells, and fleas. Owning a dog in a home you own is not the same as owning one in an apartment.

In an apartment someone else is responsible for the carpet and shit. I guess you have to pay a pet fee, but that’s about it. In a home if the dog becomes infested with fleas and they jump off into the carpet its the homeowner’s responsibility.

I guess if you take care of the dog, and train him well, these will be non-issues. However, it’s getting the dog to this point that I find distressing. You have to be patient while they are potty training and learning commands. It’s like raising a child. Not to mention he will need to be in doggy daycare while Sapphire and I are at work. Then there is grooming, food, obedience training, etc. That stuff adds up money wise.

Even still….I want to make my baby happy.

So, I’m going to look for a breeder of golden retrievers and goldendoodles. Both dogs are expensive as hell. I’m partial to a goldendoodle. I like poodles and I like golden retrievers. Why not get a combination of both? I would love a miniature goldendoodle…

I guess we will see what happens.
