Disaster unpreparedness

I dream I have a part in a theatrical production of Pride and Prejudice. When the curtain goes up on on opening night, I confidently stride onto the stage and simultaneously realize three things: 1) I have missed every rehearsal; 2) I don't know any of my lines; and 3) I am playing one of the five Bennet sisters, but...which one?

Oh good lord - just reading this made ME anxious. sheesh. What a terrible dream.
Are you maybe eating too late at night or something? ha ha

Just focus on being the sister that kills the most zombies and then escapes the mansion in a helicopter at the end.

Pete, as always, that is excellent advice. (Is Mr. Darcy one of the undead? Wait, don't tell me!)

Farmgirl, that's a typical dream here at Aerophant headquarters. I blame city life. And zombies.

Tai, that sounds just like my back to school dreams. In the week or two leading up to the start of a semester, I dream that it's finals time and I haven't been to a single class or opened a single book. Sometimes, I don't even know where my class IS. It's weird, because in reality, I'm just the opposite. I never miss class and always study like crazy.

I have the same dream Sarah (and Tai) only I'm the teacher, not a student. In my dream, I'm supposed to give an in-class exam, but 15 minutes before the class is about to start, I realize I haven't written the test yet!

Looks like I've discovered two more Bennet sisters, DAR and Sarah!
