A Newspaper Help Wanted Advertisement

Dream 1

I am not sure if I was in this dream or not.

All that I can remember of this dream is that a man named maybe something like Warren Wagner or Warren Smith or Warren Wagner Smith or something like that put an advertisement in a newspaper, it was probably a help wanted advertisement (ad) for a job that he was offering.

A man with light-color skin with short hair responded to his help wanted ad and met him in person, Mr. Wagner or Mr. Smith whoever revealed that the help wanted ad was a bit of a ploy, and there was more to it than he had mentioned in the ad.

I can not remember the details, I just know that they both were going to benefit but first Mr. Wagner or Mr. Smith needed help with something on what I assume was temporary job, and then he would help the man with something that I assume was a temporary job that the man needed help with.

I can not remember what Mr. Wagner or Mr. Smith needed help with exactly, maybe some kind of research and maybe a dog was involved but I can not remember at all, and I can only remember them discussing this until they reached an agreement (deal).

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream was possibly a partial continuation of the previous dream, I know for sure that I was in this dream, and I remember being inside a library or library-like thrift store-like building.

I remember thinking about the Mr. Wagner or Mr. Smith situation, about him partially misleading people and about whatever it was that he needed help with, and I knew that there were other people doing similar things and who were possibly involved in some way but I can not remember the details.

I possibly got to see and hear Mr. Wagner or Mr. Smith and the other man talking but I can not remember, and I possibly got to see and hear some other people doing and talking about the same thing or something similar like something bigger was going on secretly but I can not remember the details at all.

While doing this I remember looking around at shelves of stuff, I mostly remember looking at books, and I remember finding some books that were up high on a shelf and arranged where you could not see most of the titles so I adjusted them while looking at them.

I was probably going to rent or buy or get one or more of these books, there was a bit more to this dream, but that is all that I can remember now.

The Catcher In The Rye

What is it?

The 1951 book The Catcher In The Rye by the author J.D. Salinger.

The Catcher in the Rye – Thug Notes Summary and Analysis

What is it about?

This is how Goodreads describe this book:

The hero-narrator of The Catcher in the Rye is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield.

Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.

The boy himself is at once too simple and too complex for us to make any final comment about him or his story.

Perhaps the safest thing we can say about Holden is that he was born in the world not just strongly attracted to beauty but, almost, hopelessly impaled on it.

There are many voices in this novel: children’s voices, adult voices, underground voices-but Holden’s voice is the most eloquent of all.

Transcending his own vernacular, yet remaining marvelously faithful to it, he issues a perfectly articulated cry of mixed pain and pleasure.

However, like most lovers and clowns and poets of the higher orders, he keeps most of the pain to, and for, himself.

The pleasure he gives away, or sets aside, with all his heart.

It is there for the reader who can handle it to keep.

J.D. Salinger’s classic novel of teenage angst and rebellion was first published in 1951.

The novel was included on Time’s 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923.

It was named by Modern Library and its readers as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

It has been frequently challenged in the court for its liberal use of profanity and portrayal of sexuality, and in the 1950s and 1960s it was the novel that every teenage boy wants to read.
