The most vivid and interesting dream took place during the height of my sickness. I was dreaming that there was a debate going on in congress about tax dollars being wasted on nature. More specifically, money was being wasted rehabilitating injured animals to be released back into the wild.. Apparently I was a worker for something like the WDFW (department of fish & wildlife), so I was trudging through this swamp, between issaquah hobart rd and Cedar Grove rd, by the four lakes area, checking stumps for otters that had been released after rehabilitation. There were stumps conveniently placed in a straight line about 50 yards apart. I found one otter in a stump, but it looked more like a duck-billed platypus head with an otter body. This seemed perfectly acceptable, so I moved on.
The next stump was hollowed out and full of water. It was also full of sticks. There was also a large rattlesnake inside of it (under the water). I remember looking at it, and thinking "not again", then it lunged at me and bit my forearm near the wrist. I grabbed it's tail, and it struck again, this time biting me on my side, below my armpit. After gaining control, I gingerly put it back in the stump, and walked on. The last thought I had before I woke up was "Rattlesnake bites don't usually kill adults, but that 2nd one was pretty close to my heart, I wonder if I will die."
This last thought seemed very interesting to me before I woke up, not saddening or depressing, just that it was going to be interesting to see if I could survive.
My posts never seem to generate many comments. I don't feel bad about it, I'm really not that exciting, I just say funny things sometimes. Time to go home.
