Lightbulbs of Fire
Call it what you will, this morning (it woke me up at 6am) I had the following dream:
I was in the passenger seat of a small car, driving up the freeway, presumably home from work. The driver was driving a little faster and a little closer to other cars as I'd have liked. Up in the sky off to our left, I saw this bright orange flashing, smoky light, kind of like a fire. Suddenly there was a loud noise and a giant (like, the size of an 18-wheeler) lightbulb came careening down through the sky, burning bright orange. There were those big billowy fire clouds all around it, like what you see when a car explodes in a movie or something, and the lightbulb crashed not far behind our car. We kept driving, and the car spun out, as bits of glass and fire crashed all around us -- I think at some point we drove through those fire-clouds. I woke up and was really hot. Like, really hot, and my heart was beating super fast.
I went back to sleep, cuddled up to The Boy, cause, well, you know...dreams are scary. But when I woke up about an hour later, I suddenly had the perfect gift idea! Was the glowing, burning lightbulb a premonition? Coincidence? YOU Decide!
