To Sleep, Perchance To...Sleep! Tonight, Please!

Its becoming apparent that I'm having some work-related stress issues, as this dream illustrates...

I'm living in a dorm or an office building. Its around 1:30 in the morning and I can't sleep. I poke my head out the door and realize there's another light on. I walk into the hallway, knock on the door frame of the room and its Crazy Client (one of my current clients who's, well, a bit off). He invites me in and we talk about all kinds of stuff and I'm getting the definite vibe that he's really an alright guy, just misunderstood. Fast forward several hours in dreamtime... Crazy Client and I find ourselves in a big meeting room. Instead of a very large table, there are many rectangular tables that form a huge rectangle with a lot of space in the middle. Everyone on the project for Crazy Client is there - which amounts to a lot of people. The meeting is going okay until Crazy Client asks me for a cigarette. I give him one, he and I go outside and smoke and then return. Its then when a coworker informs Crazy Client that we have to stop work on his project...at which time, he explodes (figuratively). But then, after consulting with the people around her and passing many papers back and forth, that very same coworker begins to sing. And all of the sudden a few other coworkers stand up and begin dancing. Before long everyone's on their feet and the whole room is moving. Then it ends...

Someone needs a vacation, methinks.

Jeez. As if crazy client isn't enough to take in your waking hours.

Just wondering, do you watch many musicals? or the Drew Carey show perhaps? Like I said, just wondering.

What a fantastic visual! Now, did he explode a la Life of Brian, or was it more like just, poof! and he was gone?

Accck! I hate it when work invades my dreams. At least your dream ended on an up note with everyone dancing.:)

Either that, or you need to knock of the pepperoni and sauerkraut sandwiches before bed!
