last night

last night i dreamt that i married two packs of gum.

i was worried that marrying both packs would be like adultery or polygamy, but the clergyman performing the ceremony said it was okay as long as they were both trident.

"sometimes you got to have a different flavor!" he said.

they were berry and mint.

Thank you. You have just supplied a burst of flavor in an already tasty evening.

kathryn, i think i remember reading one of those poems on your blog a long time ago before we internetknew each other. i like those poems.

i think it would be awesome to change a bunch of words in the dream songs to make them all about gum. doing that through all of them would take dedication, but i feel it would ultimately be worth it, and a life-changing experience.

although, i think it would be the kind of thing that would need to be done on the roof of a tall building with endless lemonade or something. definitely in good weather.
