Upon rereading this, it actually might have happened if the thing that was unplugged was your phone extension. If so, then the landline in the other room might have rung. R. has a landline which he never answers, and he tells me it rings all the time.

But if it was all a dream, then it's interesting that the phone had an old-fashioned ring and sounded like the call was from a distance. I wonder who would have been on the line if you had picked it up? Your mother or your late partner? You, from the past? Ennis, although he didn't have a phone?

Well, it wasn't the land line that was unplugged because I saw it was the adapter I use to plug in to charge my cell phone. And in non-Dream Life, the ringer on the bedside land line.

I have my cell's ringer set to an old-fashioned phone ring tone, so it sounds like "a real telephone."  ;D

For a while I had my ring tone set to "Take on Me" by A-ha. But I forgot to silence in a few meetings, and under those circumstances a regular ring tone is definitely superior.  ::)

I suppose you heard, a few days ago, someone was making a virtual argument to SCOTUS when someone flushed a toilet in the background.  :laugh:

I did, and what's worse, I saw someone on Slate try to work out which justice it would have been. I got a ways into it and then realized I don't even want to know.

Oh, I didn't know it was a justice. I thought it was someone who was arguing the case, or someone in the background. It's even funnier that it was one of the justices. (I hope it was Kavanaugh.)

Yeah, he's already a piece of shit.

Sorry for the crudeness, but I couldn't resist.

I gathered from the article that it was a remote discussion among the justices on Zoom or something similar, except that a number of the justices keep their video off. Some even keep their audio off. But not this person, unfortunately.

Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but last night I had a dream that I was walking past my barber shop. The grating was still down over the windows, but you can see into the shop, and I saw my barber, who has the chair just inside the window, cutting someone's hair. Too bad it wasn't mine!

I told my son the photographer he should offer a service taking nice portraits of people with their COVID shutdown hair. Of course, not everybody would want it, but some might like to have it as a memento. Women are growing out their gray, men are growing beards, etc. My other son currently looks like a Civil War soldier but he says he's going to trim it to a close-cropped beard soon.

I had a dream the other day that seems to be a cross between the Covid situation and the protests/riots.


I dreamed I was back at the office where I work.  A lot of my coworkers were in the office as well.  We were all running around, saying hello to each other.  Suddenly someone yelled out that the police were pulling in the parking lot.  Apparently we were still under pandemic rules, and should not have been there.  We all dropped to the floor and started crawling around so as not to be seen.
