So I haven't been sleeping very well at night. Ya know, waking up every hour or so. And I have been having reeeeaaaallly crazy dreams. One night last week I dreamt I was at work at my old job and my mouth felt weird. So I went to the mirror to examine it and realized that I had an additional tooth growing in on the bottom left, second from the middle tooth. I was like a shark, growing rows of teeth! So, in my dream I pulled the tooth that was in the back. And suddenly the other tooth just fell out! So I went from having two teeth in that spot to NO TEETH in that spot! I was horrified and distressed and when my husband woke me up I was using my tongue to fill in that spot to see if it was real! So he is laughing at me and I tell him about my dream. Then we both have a good laugh and compared me to a few of the toothless residents in the county we live in (unfortunately there are quite a few). And he tells me that he saw Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight series, on Oprah last week. He excitedly tells me that it was a dream she had that inspired her to write the books. Then he says "Babe, you're a good writer. Maybe you should start writing stories about your dreams then we could be rich like that Twilight lady!" I just laughed and said "Sorry honey, but I really don't think they are going to want to make a major motion picture series about a toothless, bra-less, little-Richard-hair lady from Grayson County!"
(have to tell the Little-Richard-hair story some other time, but the pic above is from our honeymoon and it's a teaser for the story)
