Is the universe trying to tell me something?

One person’s cute is another person’s stupid. Take, for example, the following picture:


Obviously, the cat thinks it’s stupid.

Do dogs think it’s cute to whine in your ear at 6 in the morning?  Do cats think it’s stupid that humans can’t seem to get up when they’re hungry?

Is one person’s portent another person’s paranoia? Try having these 2 dreams and tell me if you think I have reason to sit up in bed breathing hard:

DREAM 1: Dinosaurs are running down the hallways looking for people to eat and the only thing between you and a hungry beast is the place where the plastic flowers are “planted” on top of the walls dividing meeting rooms. You’re squeezed in a small rectangular space, terrified. That’s when you take a deep breath, wake up, smile, and say, “Oh, it’s only the fat dog breathing in my face again.”

DREAM 2: You’re carrying a large tub of yogurt in a plastic bag, twirling it around like it’s a yoyo on a string. You have to cross an 8 lane highway after first crossing the 2 lane road that intersects it. There’s only 1 car on the entire road, a black monstrosity from the 1940’s that’s just sitting, waiting at the red light. You cross the 2 lane street just fine, but when you start to cross the 8 lane highway you can hardly see, you’re fighting to breathe, and then you realize why. You have a zip lock bag over your eyes and nose. You pull it up to see the car turning into the 8 lane highway where you’re walking. That’s when you cough at the cat hairs invading your nose, peel the cat off your face and say, “Oh, that’s why I couldn’t breathe.”

Damn!  I can’t even take a cat nap without a cat trying to smother me!  If I didn’t know any better, I’d think the universe was trying to tell me something.
