Have you ever woken up from a dream unable to shake the anger you had for the person you dreamt about?
A few months ago, I had a dream that my friend Tony from New Jersey, who is devoutly Catholic, happily married, and a father of two, left his wife for Ellen Degeneres. His wife was understandably livid, but he thought she should be happy that he was saving Ellen from the gay. Tony drove down here thinking I'd stick up for him and talk some sense into his wife. I kicked his tail all the way back to Jersey. I was so mad at him for trying to get me in the middle of his marital issues, and so mad at him for leaving his wife and children for a lesbian, that I woke up just livid. It was like 3 in the morning and I wanted to call him and tell him what an a-hole he was, but thankfully I just fell back to sleep. I still texted him the next day and gave him a good "you betta neva."
Well, today I'm mad at Cheri. Cheri had a terrible night with her baby in the ER and a freaked out husband, but I'm still mad at her. See, last night, Cheri and I went to an empty house and watched Ghost Hunters, and an especially creepy episode at that. It was only when she got up to go get a drink of water that I realized that I was IN the house that TAPS had investigated on the show. I called out to her... no answer. She had actually left me in a haunted house with proof on the screen that it was haunted. I tried to get out of the house but it was pitch black and I couldn't find a door. I started feeling things crawling on me. When I finally got out of the house I was really, really, really angry at Cheri.
I woke up and went to pee and considered calling her to have a word, then I realized a) it was a dream, b) it was 1 in the morning and c) she had an awful night with her baby in the ER.
Given all of those facts, I think I can forgive her.
