Last night I had a dream about a hair on Kevin Bacon’s head.
I know he’s been in a lot of movies, but I most likely haven’t seen 99 percent of them, and I’ve never had even two thoughts about him. He’s kind of a non-entity to me.
So why was he in my dream last night, asking me why someone I work with stalked him, collected a hair that fell off his head and then taped it to a stick to keep at our desk?
How do I answer I that? “I don’t know why my co-worker has one of your hairs on a stick.” It was really awkward, so I sent him in the direction of said co-worker.
Kevin Bacon: Look what I have. [holds up stick with his single hair attached]
Co-worker: Sh*t. That’s mine. Can I have it back?
Kevin Bacon: Well, not really. It’s actually mine. It’s my hair.
I remember standing there watching the conversation and thinking “this is really creepy,” but then I woke up. I never figured out why my not-so-freaky-in-real-life co-worker had this hairy stick and brought it to work.
Oh, did I mention that this conversation took place in Harry Potter’s castle after I’d been chased through it and almost killed? Harry Potter doesn’t even have his own castle, but in my dream he did.
A lot of times people say they don’t remember their dreams. I almost always remember mine because they are so WEIRD.
