Bye, Beav – do your homework!
I’ve read that the most common recurring dream is that one where sitcom stars from years ago are flying off, waving good-bye to Earth. I have that one almost every night, and it’s always Gary Coleman – you know, from Diff’rent Strokes. I wake up with the cold sweats. What about you?
Sure, I have that dream, just like everybody else. But in my version, it’s always the kid from “Leave it to Beaver.” He’s waving at me, and he looks so peaceful.
Bye, Beav! Fare thee well! Now you’re safe from Eddie Haskell, safe from Lumpy Rutherford…
That’s awesome! Hey, I’ll show you a brain scan of my dream if you’ll show me one of yours.
It’s a done deal. I’ll even put them in my blog.
