I'm at least glad that my hands aren't fat yet.

I had crazy dreams last night. I went to bed super early, around 9, woke up at 5, and then forced myself back to sleep until almost 10.

At one point I was driving down a narrow road at night and as I went through an even darker tunnel a man crossed the street in front of me. My horn still didn't work, and I barely missed hitting him when I suddenly saw a woman that had been walking with him. I jerked the car to the right toward the empty on-coming lane, but still hit her with the back left side of the car. Someone came to help, a police officer or something, but I couldn't do anything except cry and scream that I'd killed someone.

Later in the morning, I was with Eric and Cody in the car. We'd driven up to Maine to start the hike and I suddenly realized that I had brought Cody when dogs weren't allowed on the trail. I started freaking out and Eric found a vet for me to take Cody. He said it was a Banfield, so he'd be fine. When I got there there was one woman in the dark, empty office. She said they would take care of him. I was already upset about having to leave my dog somewhere strange for over two weeks, when she locks him in an empty room with no food or toys or anything. I start sobbing uncontrollably. I woke up wwith Cody sleeping besdie me, curled up against my back.

I sat in the sculpture garden by the AI a couple times yesterday. Both time I saw multiple people walk through and stop to take a photo of the tulips. It was always the same batch of tulips; not the ones across the sidewalk or to the left, but the same tulips. Eventually I decided to take a photo too. I didn't have my camera, so I used my phone.

Different topic... When I stepped off the bus earlier this evening, there was an old man sitting on the bench at the bus stop. He had tufts of white hair around the top of his head, but I couldn't see his face as he was staring at the sidewalk. He looked as I remember my great grandpa looking. Beside him was one of those huge glass jugs of cheap wine that I've seen at the grocery for around ten bucks. It was half empty. It was beautiful in this weird, distant way.

I really wanted my camera, but didn't feel right going inside to get and it coming back out.
