Birthday Dream

It is my birthday today. Not Echidne's birthday but the birthday of her current incarnation. Just to clarify, no, we are not having a national holiday in my honor, and no, you don't have to buy me pressies today or congratulate me or anything of that sort. I'm not much into rituals...

In any case, I fell asleep this afternoon and had a dream about my grandmother. In the dream she walked into her house, clad in an apron and carrying a broom. I asked her why she wasn't dead as she was supposed to be. She said that she had been dead and will be dead again but that right now she was coming to clear up my mess. Then she said: "Girl, pay attention, because I'm going to give you important advice."

And that is all I can remember. Grrr.
