I Don’t Like Puppies Anymore.


I really hope… no.

I genuinely pray…. hmm.

I am begging God to confirm to me that dreams are not really indicative of your subconscious. I truly feel like I need for someone with a Ph.D behind their name to tell me that what I dream about at night, has nothing to do with my sanity. I need to know that when I dream crazy, and I do frequently, it’s just indigestion talking.

Let me give you just one example in which I dreamt something that is not only completely impossible, but literally disturbing.  Oh! And, please keep in mind that at the time of this dream I was but 13 years old.


I was pregnant.  Problem numero uno.

I went into labor. Pause. Anyone who knows me knows two things– I’m scared out of my mind to have children and I have a savings account set aside for a surrogate mother. Or 4 epidurals.

As I am being raced through the hospitals halls in a wheel chair practicing my breathing, I am spun into the delivery room and heaved onto the bed. You know the bed I’m talking about? The one with the stirrups  at the end? That one.



As the doctor wrapped my little bundle of joy in cloth, he handed him to me.  I look down and saw…

A Rottweiler puppy.

What is someone supposed to do with something like that? Seriously.

Thank God it wasn't a litter, right?

I recently realized that my life is somewhat of a beautiful mess. A "pollack-type-picture" if you will, of colors, experiences, and people that, despite the seeming disarray, is captivating & confusing; patterened & yet unpredictable. But most of all, it is mysteriously designed, purposed, and appointed. For what? I don't know yet... but I'm learning as I go.

  1. If he looked like that picture I would say ‘it’s a keeper’……..Of course I haveheard that story before…but it still makes me laugh out loud…..a good thing to do at 6:40am….maybe I am not sleeping enough…hmmmm…

  2. I will interpret for you…. You are worried about your cousin who is also very worried about delivering a baby in the next few days AND you need a puppy. There you go. Simple as that. I’ll send you the bill.

    • BRILLIANT! And so simple! How did I not connect those dots sooner? Clearly you are about to give birth and obviously I need a puppy. Bam. Problem solved. Thank you Yoda.
