The Mistaken Romantic Object Choices List: Bingo Bolger-Baggins
I just took a nap and I had another one of those dreams. I was that little bear once again, sitting in a tree, munching on it's leaves--that taste an awful lot like cough drops, come to think of it--and there were two other little bears with me.
Then the first bear spoke: "Mistaken Romantic Object Choice # 1: The Life-long Unattainable Love Object Who Will Haunt Your Dreams Until Your Dying Day." And then we all cackled malevolently, but with decorum.
And then the second bear said, "Mistaken Romantic Object Choice # 2: The Emotionally-Distant and Quite-Probably-Rather-Sadistic Bad Object Choice You've Chosen Because You're Not Ready to Commit." And then we all giggled maniacally, but still tastefully.
And then the third bear, who had been me, but now I was outside watching all three--you know how that happens in dreams--it then said, "Mistaken Romantic Object Choice #3: The 'I Can Change Him/Her and Bring Out His/Her Full Potential" Fantasy Because You Are Getting Desperate."
And then they all looked at me, nodded, and tossed hand grenades at me. Then I woke up.
So very odd, really. I wonder what that was all about?
