So, I didn’t get a lot of sleep — from about 11:00 until just after 3:00. I was awake for a good while, but went back to bed before 5:30 and slept until just at 7:00.
The dream I had! Whoa!!!
I was living in a friend’s home, paying rent, along with some others who were also paying rent. And we all got along as roommates, I guess. We’d all apparently been living there a good while, each having our own space and our own ways of doing things on our own as well as contributing to the general pleasantness of a shared housing situation.
Then suddenly a young person moved in – a blonde, smooth-skinned (i.e., no body hair to speak of), slender, know-it-all, manipulative, self-centered, sonofabitch — basically an obnoxious little twink of a queen, in his very-early 20s, with soooo very much to learn about reality.
He hadn’t been there more than a week or two and was suddenly making changes all through the house. Little things, but annoying things. If anyone said anything it was defended as “just trying to make things better.”
It all came to a head one day when I was trying to work on something that I really needed to see, and I realized this young little twerp had removed three of the four bulbs from the overhead light fixture. I asked why, and he gave some excuse about “saving money.” I explained that I needed light to see what I was doing. I wasn’t demanding every light in the house be turned on 24/7, just the light in the room where I was working and while I was working.
He blabbered on about “there’s plenty of light already for me to see.”
I turned back and said, “You’re young and have strong eyes, but I’m older and my eyes aren’t able to take in enough light and I need extra light to see my work.”
He said, “Well, that’s what the flashlight on your phone is for.” Oh, the arrogance!!
I again explained that my eyes weren’t as efficient as they were in my youth, and that I (and the others) had accommodated each other just fine until he showed up.
And then he popped up with, “But you’re just a guest here.”
I said, “What the fuck?? I pay rent here to use the facilities that are available, just like all the other people here you’ve been pissing off with your shenanigans.”
I Was Fucking LIVID!!!!!
And then a woke up. UGH.
