Helping My Coworkers Sell Ice Cream At The BP Library | Dropping Glass

I went to sleep on the living room couch for a couple of hours but I did not record my dreams, and then I had more dreams when I got in bed; but I did not record most of those dreams, and so now I can only barely remember part of several dreams.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was at work at The BP Library, and I was behind a larger fictional version of the front desk helping my female coworkers JB and maybe TR and another coworker sell some ice cream.

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

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place at a store where two female employees and one male employee were working in one part of the store.

I was looking at items in this section of the store, and the male employee dropped a glass on the floor and it broke into many pieces.

A female manager with light-color skin scolded him, and told him to clean it up; and so he started to clean it up.

The a boy who was looking around this section also dropped a glass, and it broke; and so he started to clean up the broken glass.

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

The end,

Fiona Apple – Paper Bag (lyrics)

Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

“Paper Bag” is a song by American singer-songwriter Fiona Apple, released as the third single from her second studio albumWhen the Pawn… (1999).[2][3]

The song earned Apple a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for the 43rd Grammy Awards (2001).

Background And Composition

Apple wrote “Paper Bag” following an experience in which she mistook a plastic bag for a dove.

The event took place in Los Angeles following recording sessions for her previous studio album, Tidal (1996); Apple, reportedly upset at the time, was a passenger in a car being driven by her father.[4]

Apple’s lyrics are what she calls “extensions of her journal”, many of which draw experiences from a rape and subsequent mental health problems, including disordered eatingobsessive–compulsive disorder, and complex post-traumatic stress disorder.[5][6][7]

The lyrics in “Paper Bag” are about minimizing different types of pain, something that is reflective of the feminine experience, and resonated with girls and women in online conversations associated heavily with trauma and eating disorders, particularly anorexia nervosa, a different disorder than Apple’s own.

“Hunger hurts, but starving works” became a common, relatable moniker in disordered eating communities.[8][9][10]

Allmusic‘s Matthew Greenwald described “Paper Bag” as having a “loose, almost ragtime” melody and rhythm pattern, with an “up and down” chord pattern creating a “funky, looping feel”.[3]

The Record noted the “infectious” song includes “Beatlesesque horns”.[11]

The Boston Globe classified it as a “piano ditty” that “owes equally to Kurt Weill and Paul McCartney,”[12] while The Buffalo News noted that it “provides a more contemporary hip hop sound” than other songs on her album.[13]
