Living the Dream

Last night I dreamt that my girlfriend and I were going to do a load of washing and were discussing whether to do a light load or a dark load. This is what my dreams have come to. Literally. My life now revolves almost entirely around work, MY LOVELY SON and other family commitments. But the six or seven hours of sleep I get a night are mine and mine alone. In my unconscious mind I can still go anywhere and do anything, with no responsibilities. I could fly, swim underwater, travel to outer space or make love to supermodels with no feelings of guilt. And what am I doing? Laundry.

Maybe tonight I’ll have another dream. A dream that dark-coloured washing and light-coloured washing can one day go in the same laundry cycle.
