Keynote for a More Buxom World…or Something

I used to remember all of my dreams.  These days, not so much. But once in a while something sticks.

Like last night.  I’m no armchair (or professional) dream interpreter, but I’m sure there are people who would have a field day with this one.

I was at some sort of conference.  I was one of many speakers in attendance.  But none of us knew what we were supposed to speak about when we got there.

We had to go to an auditorium with a giant white board hanging above a stage. Our names appeared on the board one by one, along with an appropriate image for our topic, and words telling us what our topics were.

Most were pretty boring.

Julie – a picture of a dog –Training your dog


Josh Hanagarne – a picture of a very busty female torso in a tank top –TITS

I blushed in the dream, but nobody seemed to have noticed anything strange about this.  It’s not that I couldn’t rhapsodize on the subject, I could go on and on, but I wasn’t prepared and I wasn’t sure how long I was supposed to speak for.

Worse…I had no idea who the audience was.

Well, I found out when I entered my conference hall and was greeted by a sea of elderly women, all standing and clapping.

I wish I could have heard my speech, but that was when the dream ended.

I’m not sure what else to say about that, but it was more entertaining than most of the dreams I remember.

    Part of what you describe sounds a little like the beginning of “Battledecks.” (Look for ALA Battledecks on the web. It has taken place at the last several ALA conferences.)

    In Battledecks, each competitor is given a set time to talk about a set of PowerPoint slides which they have never seen before. They are judged and a winner is declared.

    Of course, when I saw your topic, I thought about Saturday Night Live and Emily Latella — and though that they meant to say “Ticks” for you (as in your special skill dealing with Tourettes).
