A Midsummer Depressive Turned Comedic Night’s Daydream / Play

Source: Wikipedia

I just found a yellow sticky note (As they call them, they call it sticky because there is glue on the back) by my computer that is months old, on it were a few words I had written one night after work to remind myself of a daydream/play I made.

Months ago while I was at work, I remember being in a depressive-like mood, but at some point during work as I listened to some music, I started to daydream about myself making/staring in a play, then I started to feel better.

I can not remember much of it now, but on the yellow sticky note I wrote:

To be or not to be

Émilie Simon performance and scene

Cardboard replacements (standees)

Job Scene

Ending: Ask DNA (song) during the ending credits with dancing

I do remember one scene with two people walking out on stage, one of them looks at the other one and says: “To be or not to be, that is the question.”

And the other one looks at the crowd with a funny straight face, pauses, and says: “But what is the answer?”.

Then the crowd laughs, and the two people run back stage; end of scene.

I probably also imagined that between scenes, there would be performances by music artists like: Pauline Croze, Emilie Simon, and probably a few other music artists that I was listening to while I was daydreaming all of this.

I do know that one scene was to take place right after a Pauline Croze performance and Pauline Croze would be part of that scene, but I can not remember it.

I do remember part of a similar scene that had a Emilie Simon performance and then a scene with her right after her performance, and I was in that scene as well.

It had something to do with cardboard replacements (standees) of a person, maybe myself and/or her, I can not remember exactly.

The cardboard replacements were probably used by me to avoid getting attacked, by using them as a distraction while I hide or something; I do not remember, but I do know that it was something funny/wacky/goofy.

I think that and/or the Pauline Croze performance was to be / would be interrupted by me trying to join the band during the song, and Ms. Simon or Ms. Croze would get annoyed & they would start chasing me, trying to hit me with probably a guitar or something; but I can not remember.

There were probably some scenes making fun of my job, and some scenes that would get the audience involved in / with the play.

The whole play was mostly a comedy with some music, and there would be / was a dance at the end of the play.

I think the play was supposed to take place at my job and many of my co-workers were to be in it, and everyone would be in the dance at the end with the song Ask DNA from the Cowboy Bebop: The Movie playing.

The ending song would be played by the band while everyone joins / joined in with the performance and dance, and they would just have fun.

The play was about having fun instead of taking things so seriously, even the scenes were set up where the actors/actresses would not have to memorize lines, they would just be given a subject for the scene and they would do whatever they felt like for that scene.

So everyone would relax and they would just go out there to have fun, and they would try to get the audience involved.

That is about all that I can remember, it was so long ago and all I have is a few words on a yellow sticky note to help me remember.

Dream 1

Last night I remember two of my dreams, the first dream took place on a street by my parent’s house.

Me and one of my brothers saw a little restaurant that looked like the O Wok, so we decided to go get some food there.

Also on the street there was a Martial Arts Dojo, it looked like a Karate Dojo, but I could be wrong.

We went inside the restaurant and we were surprised that it looked pretty good inside, compared to the outside.

There were about two or three younger workers and a middle-aged man, who looked like the main chef,  and the workers looked like they probably worked at the Martial Arts Dojo too; because it looked like they had Karate uniforms on under their work uniforms.

There was a sign that had pictures of all the meals they had, but I saw no prices, so I asked to see a menu; and on the menu there were only four meals.

As my brother and I looked at the menu, the workers said that one of the meals was not good, and they recommended some chicken dish with peanuts; so we ordered that.

Their was a small buffet on the counter, and they let us sample some of the food on there.

Then my brother and I sat down at a table, and there were a lot of people in line waiting to order food.

I can not remember if we ate or not, all I can remember is walking across the street to a house.

In the house was an old woman and a family of about nine people, and the house was small; but I think that it had about four or five bedrooms.

There was a small room when you first walked into the house that had a washing machine and dryer, then there was a living room with two bed rooms connected to it, after that there was a kitchen+dining room+family room+a couple of bedrooms, and the house was like a shotgun style house.

As I was in the living room, the old woman showed me some pictures on the wall of her family, and next to the pictures of her family were some pictures of people from my family; and some blank picture frames.

I remember that there were only a few pictures of people from my family and there was a picture of my uncle JF, my dad, and me.

The woman did not speak much English, so I did not get many answers to my questions, but I think she said that my family was part of her family.

She said that they nobody in my family had talked to them in years, and that those few pictures they had were mailed to them years ago.

The woman and her family looked like the stereotypical Korean or Japanese or Chinese Americans (as in the ethnic group / nationality), but as far as I know, none of my ancestors came from those countries; but it possible since my family is a bit more diverse than the average family.

She seemed to be sad that my family had ignored them for so long, and so I felt bad and wanted to give her some new pictures of my family; so she could put them on her wall.

Also I wanted to find out if her family was really part of my family, so I could re-unite the family.

I felt a connection with their family and I wanted to learn more about them, but it was about dinner time; so everyone was eating and talking.

The family seemed to work together very well; they worked together, cleaned together, ate together, and talked together.

Family members of different ages talked together, and their family system seemed very efficient.

Some of the family was in the living room and the others were in the family room eating and talking.

I think the owners of the restaurant and the Martial Arts Dojo lived at this house too, then I woke up.

Dream 2

My second dream was about my job, except everything looked different.

This is the third or fourth time that my job has looked like a library a bit, and in my dream, my job had an all carpet floor; and things seemed like a library for some reason.

All the workers were younger, mostly high school and college students, and they were having a lot fun; but they were not working much.

I worked as a scanner in the dream, but I did not see the scanner that I was supposed to use; and we were supposed to scan some old books.

In my group there were three men, and they were talking and pretending to work; and I just ignored them, and I tried to work.

Everything looked better and more comfortable than in real life, but people were not getting much work done, and I saw none of the people who I really work with in real life.

I remember talking to a few people, and I tried to find the scanning machines.

Then I woke up,

The Automobile Repair Shop

I can only remember parts of the dream because when I woke up my brother started watching television and my other brothers were being annoying, so I forgot some parts.

Me and my dad went to the automobile repair shop to see how things were going with my automobile, the automobile mechanics said something but I can not remember what they said.

After they finished talking the owner was going to let me work there to pay for fixing my automobile because I did not have a job and I did not have enough money.

So my job was to clean the shop after the shop closes, just for one day.

They had a guy that usually cleans it, but he told him to go home for the day.

I was going to ask the other guy that cleans the shop where the broom was, he was sitting with some other guys talking.

I introduced my self to the group, but I could not talk loud enough and they did not hear what my name was so they asked me my name again.

When I went to say my name a second time, I woke up in the real world actually still saying my name.

I then went back to sleep and the same dream started back again, which is very rare.

So I started to clean the shop and talked to the owner a little, and after I finished he said that he might let me work sometimes because I did a better job than the other cleaning guy.

Then I woke up,
