I had these two dreams, between last night and the night before last...

i had a gun to my head, and another gun aimed at the person who was holding a gun to my head and i.  person A was a very serious security guard, who didn't know I wasn't the bad guy.  Person B was the bad guy.  an uncertain and uncomfortable feeling as i successfully force myself not to anticipate an outcome.  I had been running for a while to catch up with the bad guy.  I wanted to take him down, but the security guard interfered.  I was not doing it for any other reason than to prove I was better than the bad guy, but even when I couldn't quite do that, it didn't matter to me.


i was being chased, or perhaps I was leading someone on.  I had been staying in an old hotel in a city, religiously making these rounds.  Once every day as a social experiment, I would be seen fast-walking through crowded pubs and office buildings wearing bright red tennis shoes, making certain never to appear for longer than a moment to anyone.  I did this every day, exactly the same way.  The purpose was to attract attention and inspire hellbent curiosity or even uneasy suspicion of what I was up to.  Many would turn their head, a few had been inspired to follow, but only one set out to catch me and find out.


Then I experienced the dream as the one who was chasing me.  He was an investigator, actually, and he was pretty suspicious of me.  He was no less certain that I was dumber than he, than I was that he was dumber than I.  Inevitably he almost caught up to me, but I was already prepared to diffuse the situation with more confusion.

 

I find myself running around in a perfectly aimless circle on a very strict schedule.  I excitedly attempt to confuse people until they feel compelled to do something about it.  And when they do, I find that I identify with them more than myself.
