I had a dream…………………

No, this is nothing to do with Abba, but it was such a weird and vivid dream, I thought I’d write a piece of fiction about it.

She had always loved this dress. It was pale lilac with chiffon layers, trimmed with lace and imprinted with roses. It had a square neckline, fitted bodice and the hem came just below her knees.
It suited her slim elegant figure and was perfect for her friend’s wedding.
She admitted she was a little disappointed not to be asked to be Matron or Maid of Honour but that duty had gone to her friend’s sister, a frumpish thirty five year old who would not upstage the bride.
The three other bridesmaids were all several sizes bigger than her friend so she wondered, somewhat unkindly, if that was the reason she had not been asked. They had been friends since High School, and always compared notes on the latest diet and fashion trends as well as boys. She herself had never married, but this was her friend’s third fiance, and the only one to make it to the altar. The fact that she had dated him before her was incidental.
Patting her hair into place, she exited her apartment and locked the door.
She was making her own way to the church and knew she’d make a grand entrance, almost as much as the bride.
She smiled to herself. Who else was likely to turn up on a motor bike with side car?

My dream was of the dress and the motorbike. Why I should dream about them is anyone’s guess, though OB had a motorbike and sidecar (his birthday today) and I used to wear a similar dress to church on Sundays when I was about 10.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
