Shape Up Or Ship Out

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Shape Up Or Ship Out, and this is what it said:

Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

Thanks for the great idea, Iam Who Iam.


A Hair Selling Competition?

I remember part of a confusing dream from last night that took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of D and on & off a slightly fictional version of the highway to LC.

One part of the dream involved me driving around D to shop at Dollar General and/or several stores or something like that, but I can not remember the rest of the beginning of the dream.

At some point I drove toward the city of LC and off of the highway was an event of some kind taking place, and I stopped to see what it was all about.

There were a lot of people but I can not remember most of what happened at first, I just remember at some point there was a competition where people were trying to sell hair or something crazy like that, and a few celebrities were competing as well.

Hulk Hogan was there & he had a younger supermodel-looking wife with blond colored hair and whitish colored skin, and she was in the hair selling competition or whatever it was.

She had some blue fabric / hair-like stuff over her face & head that made her look a bit like Mystique from the X-Men films, but she was not doing so good in the competition because the crowd did not like her personality or something like that; they felt that she acted like she was better than everyone or something like that.

I think that Hulk Hogan tried to cheer her up & give her some advice, and he might have tried to get the crowd on her side; but I am not sure, and I can not remember the details.

Another celebrity who was in the competition later in the dream was, Jack Black, and I met him on an airplane that was flying; but I do not remember how I got on the airplane. 😀

I just remember meeting Mr. Black, and he was goofing / joking around as usual; and he went to the competition when the airplane landed, and I went back to the competition to watch again.

There was one or more other celebrities competing at the event, among the other people in the competition, but I can not remember who; and I can not remember the rest of the details.

I remember driving back to D at some point and something happened that I can not remember exactly, that might have had something to do with an abandoned house connected to the building by DG; but I am not sure.

Later my dad and I went to visit a fictional great-aunt of my dad, who lived in a narrow two-story house connected to the building by DG, but she looked like my mom’s dead great-aunt E/QJ.

I can not remember most of the details but I do know that we went on both floors of her house, and I remember that she walked faster than I expected for an old woman & she had more energy than I expected; and she seemed independent like my mom’s dead great-aunt E/QJ.

In the dream I might have even thought about how she looked & reminded me of my great-aunt E/QJ, but I am not sure.

This fictional great-aunt of my dad talked to my dad & I about several things, but unfortunately I can not remember what she told us; but I know that some of it was advice & past wisdom/knowledge.

I call her my dad’s fictional great-aunt because as far as I know she is not one of my dad’s great aunts, but I am not sure.

At some point we said goodbye & left, but I woke up shortly after this.

The end,

The Woman At The Drive-Through / Classroom?

I do not remember much of this dream at all, probably due to the fact that I got awakened by the sound of an automobile horn blowing, which woke me up and scared me at the same time; I am writing this just to hopefully help with my dream recall.

I think at one point in the dream I was at a fast food restaurant drive-through ordering food, and a woman my age took my order; at the window we talked for a moment, I think.

She had a positive and energetic personality, anyway, this may or may not have happened; I do remember being in a classroom and she was there.

She loudly greeted me and started talking with me and goofing around, she was the type of person who was not afraid to be herself and have fun around others.

I was a bit uncomfortable at first not wanting to look foolish with people around that I did not know, but she was so relaxed that I started to joke around a bit too.

She started doing some silly dance and I slightly joined in, I have no idea where the teacher was at this point.

Sadly I can not remember what she looked like exactly, but I think she had either blond or red hair and she looked liked someone I know, but I can not remember who; she may have had some freckles and somewhat acted like Peppermint Patty from Peanuts.

I was impressed by her personality and it helped give me courage, I think we started to act so comfortable that I felt like we were an instant couple or something; I remember looking around the room to see if people were staring at us, but most of them were busy studying as we joked around and talked.

I remember being surprised by my courage and comfort in public, and how well we were getting along; but then I got awakened and scared by the sound of an automobile horn.

Then end,
