I’d just received word in this dream that I’d been selected for a movie role. I was going to be a star!
That was exciting news. Details flooded me. The movie was a remake of a classic. I don’t know what movie, but I was going to be in the role John Wayne played.
I roared with laughter. John Wayne was a big fellow. I am not. How could I possibly play that role? Then, I thought CGI. Magic. What the hell, whateer. Not my concern. I’d been selected. Go with it.
I wanted to share my news and went to my friend, who was also going to be in the movie. I found him in a dorm where he was in the old woodlands camouflaged battle dress uniform. I found out that I was, too. Then, the dorm wasn’t a dorm as first expected, but a tight, tight space crammed with bookcases. The bookcases created a labyrinth.
He came up to me. I said, “I understand we’re going to be in a movie together.”
“I hadn’t heard that.”
That bothered me. Other soldiers in woodland BDUs came out around him and I. I said, “I’m going to play the role that John Wayne had.”
I awaited a reaction but got nothing. I said, “It’s a starring role.”
“Um…filming is supposed to start in two weeks.”
I cleared my throat. “But first, we have to get through this.” I gestured.
“I wanted to let you know, though. There’s going to other roles to fill. They might come around and ask you if any of your troops are interested in a minor role.”
“It might be an opportunity for them.”
Sniffing, he nodded. “Right.” He turned away. I left.
End of dream.
