This was a great
dream...a fun dream, and it made me wake up laughing. I dreamt that my best
friend Johnny (Elwood), of over twenty-something years, had surprised everyone
with writing a song that was going to be used in a hit movie. The song was
called "I Got My Christmas Card, My Candy, My Glasses, And My Peanut Butter
Now, I had no idea how this
'song' of his was
discovered, or why anyone wanted to use it in a movie, but they did. The movie
people had wanted to get Sonny Bono to record it for them, but then they all
remembered that he had died. I can't remember who they finally got to record it
for them. Everyone was so shocked that this had happened...you just have to know
Johnny to understand why this is so funny to me.
Well, it finally came time
to see the movie that Johnny's song was in....the big movie premiere. Everyone
was there...I was amazed at the stars who took interest in this movie....Tom
Cruise and his 'then' wife Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, and all kinds of people. There
were people who I knew were important, but I didn't know who they were, probably
producers and the like.
The room was getting full
of people. And it wasn't a regular movie theatre, it was more like a huge open
room...a ball room, maybe. It was getting so full of people that I had to sit
around a corner and I couldn't see the movie screen at all.
I couldn't believe that
Johnny wrote and sold a song.....JOHNNY! I was still stunned. I stayed in a
state of shock through-out the entire dream.
Well, I ended up having to
sit next to Walter Matthau....who slept the whole time anyway...and I was
totally naked and trying to cover myself. I don't know why I was naked, this was
definitely an occasion that I would have REALLY dressed up for...I love to dress
Anyway, I felt so
self-conscious of my nudity, but no one else seemed to notice at all. Just then
a baby, under a year old, appeared on Walter's lap. It was fussing and wasn't
happy at all. He woke up and told me to hold the child. It was also
naked. I didn't want to hold the baby, but I did it anyway and the baby got
quiet immediately. It was real happy to be with me. The baby and I were the only
naked people in the room.
The movie was playing...I
could hear it, but I couldn't see it. Then the room got real still and quiet,
there wasn't a sound to be heard...no one was saying a word. All of a sudden, in
the movie, a child said these words..."I Got My Christmas Card, My Candy,
My Glasses, And My Peanut Butter And Jelly".
Then the movie was over.
That was it. People were standing and clapping and the lights came on and the
people stayed to see Johnny's name in the credits. As soon as that was over the
people began to leave. What I didn't understand was that I didn't hear the
actual 'song'....just the title of it being recited in an awkward way, by a child.
Most of the people had gone
and Johnny and I were talking and we heard someone shouting horrible
things....cussing and yelling. We looked over and saw that a large black man was
challenging Woody Allen to a fight. He said that if Woody didn't fight him that
he would start hurting the other people in the room. Well, we knew that Woody
Allen didn't have a chance with him and Johnny and I wanted to get out of there
before something happened. I was still naked, and I don't know what happened to
the baby, but I told Johnny that we had to leave. So, Johnny and I went out into
the parking lot, got in our space ship, and left....and Johnny was singing his
song...."I Got My Christmas Card, My Candy, My Glasses, And My Peanut
Butter And Jelly".
