"Please Remain Calm, this is not happening"
A few nights ago, I had a
very vivid dream. In the dream, I was in my favorite
grocery store,and shopping for my usual things. As I looked for my
favorite muffins, that usually sell for $3.99 for four muffins, I found
that they had taken one muffin, sliced it into 4 pcs, and it was $3.99.
( a four fold price increase ). I looked around, and everything
was similar in price. No one in the store seemed alarmed, but I was
dumb struck. I just left the store. Next, I was in a large room
filled with old men, and a few old women. They were all in
bathrobes, and slippers. Then I realized I was in a nursing home.
The odd thing, was that there were no nurses or caregivers. They had
all left, and the residents were just milling around, and trying to
fend for themselves. It was pitiful. I got the impression that the help
had left, because they weren't being paid anymore. Then the dream was
over. I awoke with a very frustrated feeling. I usually forget my
dreams, but this one stuck with me all day.
