As many of you know, today is a pretty special day. For those of you who are simply spying on me via WWW, prior to being declared St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th was foredestined to become an even more of an important day; my birthday! Turning 26 has been pretty awesome so far; I’m feeling pretty good about where I’m at in life and what the world has in store for me. As Gwen Stefani would say, “I’m feelin’ hella good.”
Last year was good, but it definitely had its ups and downs. Last night I had a pretty crazy dream which signifies, what I call a time of my life filled with awesomeness and good times.
In this dream, I was riding my bike* along and suddenly I noticed in the trees that there were snakes all around. Being an appreciator for all things slithering, I immediately stopped picked up a medium sized slithering beast. I’m no ophiologist, but I think it was a python.
Anyway, so I pick up said snake and begin to ride my bicycle. As I’m riding along, the snake freaking bites me in the face, but nothing happened (other than the fact that a freaking snake tried to kill me). I then proceeded to squeeze the snake. This quickly proved to be a not-so-good idea because then it bit my hand and I couldn’t get it off. I tried everything and eventually pried its jaws open and threw it on the ground. It began to race quickly away from me (probably because it recognized I had commandeered a shovel from somewhere). As it’s making its escape it slithered right into the belly of a much larger snake (anaconda?) which seemed to be much friendlier towards me. I thanked the snake for assisting me claim victory over snake “A” and after that I woke up.To help you fathom what it was really like I attempted to recreate the series of events.
What does this mean? I think the first snake signifies my 25th year of life on this earth and the second snake represents the upcoming year. The eating of the 25th year symbolizes the 26th’s year of superiority in all things awesome. So, you ask, what does this all mean? Well, this year is going to be a good one!
Of course this could be a combination of the following:
- Listening to too much Aquabats, namely Attacked by Snakes
- Looking on KSL and Craigslist for bikes (*If you have one you are looking to sell, let me know)
- Killing snakes in Resident Evil 5
