The other night I had an intriguing version of The Actor's Nightmare. That's the dream where you're in a play, but you realize that you've never read the script or attended rehearsal, and you're about to publickly screw up and let down everyone who's counting on you to make the show work. It's awful.
But this time the dream began earlier on the day of the show. I was aware that I still had time to read the script, but first I had to take care of some chores. So I went through the day (I'm not going to bore you with a blow-by-blow; I usually have a rule against sharing dreams) and with each task I tried to perform I realized I was having the same basic problem as in the regular actor's nightmare: I didn't know what to do or how to do it, and people were watching as I screwed up and let them down. Again and again. The dream ended backstage with the curtain about to go up, and my realizing that I never did get around to reading the script.
It's like The Actor's Nightmare extended to cover my whole life, which is about right.
