Quick note today but a surreal one nonetheless. Had a pretty traumatic dream last night: I was given a stack of papers by someone at work (I guess an HR person) and two of them near the top were literally pink slips. I was then told I was being laid off. I was shocked. Then I woke up in a panic. After laying there wide awake for a few moments, I noticed that Larry was possibly awake and I told him what my dream was about. I then fell back asleep after a bit.
Flash forward to right after lunch today at work. George comes into my office and asks me to come over and see him in his office with Nicki. I ask him what’s up and he says that it’s important and I just need to come over. It’s obviously a joke of some sort so I’m willing to go and see what it is. When I get there, George hands me a folded up pink piece of paper and sternly tells me that I’m being fired. Of course it’s a funny joke except for the fact that I’ve just dreamt about this fucking thing happening that night prior. I gotta say, that was the weirdest timing ever. I don’t even know. I asked him directly and almost sternly how the hell he came up with that joke today. I was even wondering if perhaps Larry had called him or Nicki to play a prank. He hadn’t. It was just a very strange confluence of events. Fortunately, I’m not laid off.
