Two nights ago, I dreamt that B2 was being a pain in the arse and poking my face, or whatever, and that I threatened, jokingly, as I occasionally do, to bite his fingers off. He teased me once more, and I did bite his fingers off. It was remarkably easy, not as hard a Snickers bar, more like a Milky Way.
Anyway, I was suitably horrified, picked up the two fingers from the floor (although i don't remember spitting them out), and raced him to the Emergency Room.
At the hospital, he was whisked away, and inexplicably I did not go with him. When they returned to send him home, I noticed that his hand was bandaged, but the dressings were far too short to have fingers reattached.
I screamed - "Why aren't his fingers back on???!!"
Apparently they didn't know I'd brought the fingers.
A full all-hands search revealed the missing fingers, one of which looked like it was speckled with black mold, on a chair tucked under another patient's bed.
The nurses raced him into surgery and the missing digits were reinstated.
How screwed up am I? What does this mean?

Don't you just love those dreams that send us into a fit trying to figure out what they mean?

I used to have a reoccurring dream that I was shopping and had Paige in the baby car seat, strapped into the shopping cart. In my dream I would turn around and realize that I left the cart in another isle. I would run through the store frantically trying to find the cart only to be faced with an empty isle. It was a horrible dream.

Sending nice dream vibes your way!!
