Dreaming about a brief

Last night, I dreamed that I had somehow gotten myself into having to write a brief in support of upholding Row v. Wade on very short notice. Since I am not trained as an attorney, this was not for filing in a court. Exactly what the brief was to be used for was not clear. The brief was apparently due at 9:00 p.m. EST, and it was close to 6:00 p.m. PST, so I was getting rather worried. Robert Bork was writing the brief for the other side.

I wish I had nightmares that involved my profession, but mine are always about high school or college. Either I forget my locker combination, or I go to a class that I have been skipping too much and suddenly there is an exam for which I have no hope of passing. I wonder if there is a way to get more interesting nightmares, because really I don't mind being terrified, I just want to be entertained when it happens.

Actually, as I mentioned in an earlier blog entry, I do have a recurring nightmare about being at the end of the term and not having shown up for an English class I had registered for.

The idea of "more interesting nightmares" is intriguing. I would prefer to avoid them altogether, but I imagine that if you do have to nightmares, they might as well be interesting. ;)
