Next time: take better notes

Have you seen that episode of Seinfeld where Jerry is dozing on the couch watching a dumb movie, and he writes down a joke, but then in the morning he can't figure out what it says?

Well, the other night I had this vivid dream, that I woke up and thought, "That would make a good book."  (Really, I think it would make a better movie.)  I thought I had a notepad on my phone, but now that I think about it, I deleted that app.  Anyway, I brought up my email and typed it as a draft.  Of course, it was 4:45 in the morning and my phone is bright, so I was trying to keep it short and shield my phone so as not to disturb my fabulous husband.

So I pull up my email when fully awake, and what does it say? "Story of the bus crash. It was all a dream"

That's it.  Not even ending punctuation.  Apparently my great idea was to tell the story of the bus crash,  but it was actually all a dream.  Awesome.  Thanks for including detail, sleepy me.  Should the story cover who shot JR, too?


  1. Brains and dreams and what makes sense in the middle of the night but not in the morning; it's all so weird.

  3. This is hilarious and awesome.

  4. I think I did the same once when I was quite drunk. I thought that it would be a shame if I didn't remember in the morning, and wrote a bunch of stuff down. In the morning, it was practically gibberish.
