I'm gonna write this post now before the last image left from a dream last night is gone. This was not one of those weird dreams at all - everything was pretty normal...
I was talking to 4 roommates who were renting a house from me. I've done this in the past, but I'm not now, and the 4 guys in the dream were not people I recall.
They were telling me nicely that I owed them just over $800. They'd had to stay in hotel rooms for a couple of nights. Why? I figured that my property manager/ friend forgot to tell me something happened, such as he had to cut off the water or something like that. OK, well, not good, but stuff happens... no, wait, what?
"No, we had to move out for a couple of days because of Covid-19", the one guy told me.
"Uhhh, oh ...", I was trying to get a handle on this. "You guys got nothing to worry about with this thing though. You're young and in good shape."
He agreed, but informed me "Yeah, but we're gonna graduate soon."
Then, I realized "... oh, you guys have to make sure you don't test positive in order to graduate?" (This somehow all made sense in the dream, and, sadly, in reality too a couple of years back.)
"Yep, that's it."
"Oh, I see. Alright," (Somehow I owed them another 900 bucks too, but that part of the dream is gone. The $900 wasn't Covid-19 related.)
"That kinda sucks", I thought, while I was already gone from talking to them. Finally, it came to me: "This is bullshit! I'm not paying for this crap because the University is part of this PanicFest!"
This dream - OK not exactly normal because the times are not exactly normal - was right at the end of the official "emergency", but it's not like I've put much thought into the PanicFest in a long while. Oh, yeah, this dream could have been induced by my seeing some young guy at the Starbucks drive-through wearing a face mask in his car the morning prior. Yes, with the windows up. You're freaking me out, man!
