So I just had this dream that we’d been invaded by vicious, killer dinosaurs, and the only way to survive was to summon the King of the Monkeys.
(Jet Li as the Monkey King)
To summon him, you had to press a series of around 200 hieroglyphs in a specific order. Once you pressed one correctly it disappeared, but many of them were very similar. If you pressed one wrong they would all disappear and our chance for survival would be gone.
So I’m pressing these things and 2 little monkeys who were my partners saw what I was doing. One took objection, since the King of the Monkeys was not to be summoned lightly. He tried to stop me, and my finger almost touched the wrong picture.
But just then a velociraptor wandered by (terrifying, but thankfully he didn’t see us) And suddenly the little guy was on my side, helping me choose the right pictures and shaking like a leaf in terror.
We finished the summoning procedure and the Monkey King arrived from outer space very dramatically.
Let me repeat that.
THE MONKEY KING ARRIVED FROM OUTER SPACE.
(that must be a really bad SF movie somewhere)
He killed all the dinosaurs except the big boss and then died, leaving the boss battle to us.
Then I woke up, which I choose to interpret as WINNING THE BOSS BATTLE.
Oh, and at some point earlier the mean older brother from Home Alone was the first person eaten by the dinosaurs.
All in all a very oddly satisfying dream.
And here’s a picture of Harry Connick, Jr., for purely selfish reasons.
