The Drugs are Typing for Me Now

I was taking a nap after work and this was my dream. I really have no ideas as to why or why I am posting it. I think to document my mind is not quite right even while I sleep maybe.

“Oh my G-d,” the masked criminal in the cliché black and white striped shirt screeched through his bandana covered mouth. His cohorts turned just in time to watch the Dynamic Dou smash through the windowpane and land in a perfect comic book pose amid the raining shards of glass. Batman gazing in disapproval through his cape-enveloped form and Robin doing something quite gay looking in his green underwear and yellow cape. It almost looked as if the boy wonder was dealing with a horrid wedgie. Regardless of his current discomfort this was crime fighting prime time.

The two heroes leapt suddenly into action as the masked villain screamed to his boss in the back “it’s Robin and Batman! Run!”

“What do you mean ‘Robin and Batman’” the Caped Crusader asked with a slight degree of pain in his voice. “I am Batman ya know. I was doing this before he was even born. I found him in a damn circus and gave him all this. Can’t you show a little respect? I work hard man!”

“Look,” the criminal said looking down at his shoes, “I’m sorry. I didn’t think.”

“NO, you didn’t. I know I wear a mask and beat people up and all, but I got feelings too.”

“Woah, woah, woah,” the forgotten about boy wonder intervened, “I get mentioned first once and you throw a hissy fit? It’s supposed to be ‘Batman AND Robin.’ It’s about the “and” which means we are equal. We are partners I thought. It shouldn’t matter who comes first.”

“You’re right, chum. I’m sorry. It was my mistake.” Batman looked warmly at his brother-in-arms and fellow crime fighter, “It should have been ‘Batman with Robin.’”

Robin was taken aback by this for a moment, but only for a moment. His mind was much sharper than the aging partner’s was and worked it all out rather quickly.

“I like that better actually,” he said with a smirk. “It means you are with me. ‘Where’s Batman at?’ ‘Oh, he is over there WITH Robin.’ That is awesome.”

“No, wait,” Batman threw his hand out to halt the words from travelling somehow, “I mean Robin with Batman.”

“So I get top billing after all?”

“I could fire you, you know?"

You dreamed that?! That's amazing. I don't think I ever dream about recognizable characters. Except this one time when I dreamed my sister was married to Jean-Claude Van Damme.

It was in that period where your entire body is asleep, but you mind is just not there yet. It's almost, but not totally.

And all I dreamed was the teenage neighbor was afraid of stuffed pigs! NOT FAIR. LOL

But Roxan has some pretty intense dreams, too.

And now we know; Kanrei dreams in slapstick. Sweet!

This is a funny post.

It entertained me as I fell asleep. I am so happy it entertained all of you as well. Amazing how everytime I think something is a weak post it gets the most attention.

Somebody's scared of stuffed pigs? Crikey! I guess I'd better not show Roxan's neighbor mine.

I get that same feeling often, Kan -- what I feel is a say-nothing, do-nothing post sometimes get more attention than something I put a lot of thought into. I attribute it to the phases of the moon.:)
