Husby and I were at a craft show where we met a bunch of people right away. There were two couples working together, two guys working together, and one other guy who was hanging out with one of the couples. I remember the women’s names, Gwen and Kate. I can’t remember the guys’ names.
The show was set up on a marina and in the adjacent park. I was amazed that my assigned space was actually on one of the boats in the marina. So very cool, and nice that I didn’t have to set up a canopy as everything could be set up under the cover of the boat. Husby and I set up right away and even though the show didn’t start until the next day lots of people were stopping by to see what I had to offer.
At one point I came to an uncomfortable realization. I took Gwen aside and said, “I’m so embarrassed, but could you tell me what state we’re in?” I would have asked Husby but he was off swimming. Gwen looked at me like I was crazy and didn’t even answer me, as if I didn’t deserve to know. Such a premiere show and she doesn’t even know what state she’s in?
I decided it didn’t matter, but as Husby and I were sitting around with these seven other people we had met I asked again. “What state are we in?” One of the men responded “New Orleans.” I looked at him and clicked my tongue. “New Orleans isn’t a state, and besides, if I was in New Orleans I’d know, and this isn’t it” It was at that point I knew these people weren’t going to be my friends if they couldn’t even help me out in my addle-minded condition.
Husby and I went back to the boat slip where my display was set up. To my horror the entire boat was gone. Gone! Gone with all of my products!
At that point I woke up. I likened this dream to those where you go to school and realize you have no clothes on, or forgot your locker combination. I never did find out what state we were in, and when I relayed the dream to Husby he said “I think you were in the state of confusion.” Ha ha.
Am I having craft show anxiety? Am I having social interaction anxiety? Am I having house boat anxiety? I’m not really sure, but I am sure the dream is anxiety-based.
Funny, I don’t feel anxious in my waking state, but maybe I should pay attention to my subconscious. First order of business is to be sure to know what state I’m in when at a craft show. Secondly, don’t trust being set up on someone else’s boat.
Here’s to a week devoted to researching shows to do in the 2013 season.
