i had a dream about you: you were trying to show me how to get the best deal at some burrito loco style restaurant and you started by ordering chicken tenders with extra sauce but hold the tenders.
i was confused.

I had a dream that I got hired by the mafia. No one ever talked to me or told me what to do so I just stood around feeling uncomfortable and thinking that they all thought I was useless. Then at the funeral of the big boss, or "Don," a caterer was speaking in an inappropriately loud voice. I calmly asked his to quiet down a little bit and show some respect just in time to stop a Joe Pesci-esque character from taking him outside and "whacking" him. After that they seemed to have a little respect for me. Then, in the real world, some banging noise was starting to wake me up. At first, in my unconscious sate, I thought it was someone typing slowing on an old fashioned typewriter, then I though it sounded more like those big cha-chunking knobs that old TVs used to have. I think I was really coming from the pipes.
