Last night I had a funny dream, a bit nightmarish. I gave a dinner party. The seating arrangements were different, all the guests were sitting in groups of four around small tables I was sitting with a friend, had an animated conversation, so he did not have a face I knew. He looked a bit like Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind.
The two other people, a gentleman and a lady I didn't know either. It turned out it was the Italian Ambassador and his wife. The gods know, I do not know any Italian Ambassadors nor their spouses. Anyway, I thought they were Spanish as the lady wore a Mantua and a Mantilla, I was wondering if I had forgotten that it was a fancy dress party. Anyway, we were sitting and eating, talking, my friend “Rhett Butler” and I a little flirting, a sip of wine, suddenly my eyes swept over the other tables, over to the Ambassador and his good wife, no one but "Rhett Butler" and I had any wineglasses. Flustered I said excuse me, got up from the table and wanted to go and get some wineglasses from the cupboard. The cabinet was staring at me with empty shelves, all the glasses were gone. Frantically I tried to remember where I put them. I ran around in the house and could not find the wineglasses, not one set. I looked in all the cupboards…nothing…then I woke up.
The Moral of this story do not clean and rearrange your cupboards before you go to sleep.
