And I had ANOTHER dream...
BEGIN DREAM SEQUENCE
This is kinda weird. There's this swimming pool, and it's like, in the middle of all these little shops. There's a really awesome hot tub attached to the swimming pool. The only problem is that the only way to get to one of the shops is to walk on the narrow bar dividing the pool and the hot tub. The narrow slippery tile bar. Like a regular pool, but instead of both sides of the bar-thing being the same depth, the pool part was the deep end.
So it's me and Scar walking around the shops, and we're walking on the precarious walkway to go to the one shop, and there are a bunch of nerds in the hot tub. Scar's like "Do you really HAVE to go to that shop?" and I was all "Yes! I heard they have a G1 Starscream AND an Armada Starscream! Plus someone said they might still have a G1 Omega Supreme!"
The phrase "rolled his eyes" wouldn't quite do justice to the reaction. If there's a phrase for that face someone makes when what they want to say is "You are a crazy person. But because I do not know quite how to argue logically with a crazy person, I have no choice but to bemusedly acquiesce," then that would be the face.
Unfortunately, the nerds overheard me. And they were the mean kind of nerds who would push you in front of a bus just to steal the Yu-gi-oh cards from your dying fingers. So, they pushed us into the pool and ran for the store!
If I hadn't been so pissed that they might steal the toys I wanted to buy, I'm sure I would have laughed. Pushing someone into a pool is always funny, even if it's me. But I was like "Those little shits! They're gonna steal my toys!"
Since the bar-thing was all tiled and slippery, I couldn't climb out there, and we had to swim to the storefront to get out of the pool.
So, I go into the shop, and the shopkeeper is this little old lady. And the nerds are gone! I don't know how they got out, but it's better for them as Scar wanted to Arm-O-Doom them.
The little old lady asks me what I'm looking for, and I see that the Armada Starscream and the Omega Supreme are still there. The G1 Starscream is still there, but someone had replaced the regular head with a doll head. I said "Do you have this in a non-dollhead version?"
She showed me a similar problem she had with a doll who had a Starscream head. I was like "baaaaka!" and I switched the heads. She wrapped up the toys for me and I gave her a soaking wet business card that was magically still legible and asked her to mail them to me. Scar was like "What the hell?" and I said "The nerds are gone. We're already soaked. Hot tub!"
END DREAM SEQUENCE
I would have liked to have continued that dream at the hot tub scene, but ahh well. I better go to work now.
