Friends in High Places

Actual transcript from dream last night:

Me: Look, if you have to put [Father's Name] in touch with me, he can pass a message through Tiberius.
Lolmom: lol
Me: I cleared it with him first. It's fine.
(Worth mentioning: we were in the countryside, and I was playing with a peculiar, fluffy creature that was some kind of bizarre cross between a bunny and a chick.)

(Brain cuts to flashback of this discussion.)

Tiberius: FINE I WILL DO IT, STOP BOTHERING ME
Me: OH JUST THANK YOU ALL TO PIECES
(Apparently, in the twisted context of this dream, the recently-dead Divine Augustus had performed the same service for me and was particularly adept at "losing" my father's correspondence.)

RECOMMENDATION: Stop reading about the early principate before bed.

Wow, your dream state both reveals the gnosis and foxes parental machinations. (Mine... is too boring even to remember!)

Next time, aim for Antinous!

;-P

I almost wondered if it was a visitation, but, on further reflection, decided that a visitation would make logical sense ;) Antinous is a little too pretty for my taste, but your request has been duly noted!

To be honest, he's a bit too pretty for me too, but apparently he - or do I mean He? - still has active supplicants/devotees... ULTIMATE POSTHUMOUS CELEBRITY STATUS?!

I was dreaming about something strange this morning involving my in-laws' house and something weird happening in all these rooms that they don't actually have...

I've had similar dreams. Or those delightful ones where you keep dreaming that you have to pee (because, in real life, you do, and this is how your body tells you to WAKE UP, STUPID, AND GO PEE).

My proudest dream was lo these many years ago when I dreamt I was at a pool party with The A-team. Not as fancy as Roman emperors, but it's up there somewhere.

That's still a pretty awesome dream :D Provided you don't then write Mary Sue fanfiction about it ;)

I THINK YOU POSSIBLY DID NOT EXIST IN MY DREAM :(

THIS WAS VERY RUDE OF MY SUBCONSCIOUS, AND WILL BE CORRECTED IN FUTURE DREAMS ABOUT JULIO-CLAUDIANS.
