I Had This Crazy Dream…

It was a lazy Saturday morning and I was lounging on the couch checking Facebook on my iPhone when my wife’s latest status update popped up on the screen…

I had a nightmare of a dream.  Can I be mad at my husband for something he did in my dream?

I nearly did a coffee fueled spit-take.

One of her friends, Anne, chimed right in.  I have been before, at least for a little while.  LOL.  I am still mad at Jessica Beal.  She better leave my man alone!

I set my cup on the coffee table and pecked out my two-cent response.  That would be a definite “NO.”

You know it’s going to be a bad day when your wife is mad at you for something you did in her dream.

A few minutes later Vickie emerged from our bedroom with her phone and a big grin on her face.  “Would you like to know what you did?”

I shook my head.  “I didn’t do anything.”

Interesting fact:  My wife is crazy.

“I dreamt you had a girlfriend,” she said.  “Do you want to know the worst part?”

“Absolutely not.”  I covered my head with a pillow.

“You let her move in with us!”  Vickie threw her arms up in disgust.  “She was living in our den and I couldn’t stand it anymore, so I helped her pack up her stuff and carry it out of the house.  How could you put me through that?”

I had no idea what to say because I have a hard enough time staying out of trouble for the stuff I really do.  “Well,” I stammered, trying to think, “This girl had some self-esteem issues and I was trying to help her through a tough patch.”  I couldn’t help but grin.  “I thought you’d understand.”

Vick did a little double take and her eyes got bigger.  “Where the heck did that come from?”

Unfortunately for us poor oblivious guys, it seems to be common for women to have dreams like this about their men.  Another one of Vickie’s Facebook friends shared her experience too…

I woke up and yelled at my (ex-now) husband because of a dream.  After I fully woke up we both laughed.  But I was still kind of mad. 

Vickie didn’t really seem angry with me at all (thank God) and we both had a good laugh about her dream.  I love her sense of humor.  It’s one of the main reasons I married her.

This whole situation got me thinking about my wild and imprudent bachelor days.  Well, to be honest, they weren’t very wild or imprudent.  Yep, my wife doesn’t have anything to worry about because I’ve had my fill of the single life.  I like being married and I love my wife very much,

Even if she is a little crazy.
