Tomorrow I turn sixty six years old.
Last night, I re-watched “A Few Good Men” and dreamed that my friend who is a colonel in the United States Marines visited Karen and me with his family, including his Mom and Dad who are our age.
In my dream, my friend’s Dad was also a USMC colonel and was played by Jack Nicholson. In real life, my friend’s Dad is a farmer in Indiana. Unlike Col. Jessup in the movie, my friend’s Dad was nice but still intimidating.
When my friend’s Dad inspected my bedroom and saw the psychedelic poster of a marijuana leaf with the words “SMOKE POT” emblazoned on it in groovy ’60s balloon lettering, I was kind of embarrassed.
My friend’s Dad stared at my poster for a second and just said, “Huh!”
I wanted to crawl away somewhere and die.
What do you suppose this all means?
