Why Hasn't JJ Abrams Contacted Me About a Creative Writing Project?


So last night in a dream, I noticed a bowl of dog food at my feet.

I thought, "I wonder what dog food tastes like?" And then I picked up a kibble and munched.

"It's kind of bland. But the after-taste is bad. No wonder they have bad breath."

Then I walked away.

The end.

Are you kidding me? In a chance to fly above the tree tops, go back or forward in time, to possess any super power--I chose to taste dog food?

Good grief! With a bright imagination such as this, it's only a matter of time until J.J. Abrams of Alias, Lost and Fringe contacts me.


Abrams: "Lid, we're stuck on a scene in which the "real" Earth's Fringe Team investigates people who have been put into an unbreakable trance by a mysterious box. Any creative ideas about what substance in the box could put such a hold on people?"

Me: "Yes! Just as Agent Olivia Dunham arrives on the scene of citizens walking around in various states of zombieness, she notices several mysterious boxes of dry dog food opened and strewn about. Suddenly, she thinks, 'Hey. I've always wondered what this tastes like .... "

Lid, this made me smile, not everyone can have epic dreams, right? Tomorrow night you have an epic dream with you flying, okay?

Lots of love,

My brother & I made a pact when we were kids to taste the dog food & not tell our parents. It was crunchy, dry and INCREDIBLY SALTY. Of course this was about 40 years ago - it must be a lot healthier now since your taste was so bland :)

LOL! I've just gone over my 50,000 for NaNoWriMo -- if I'd only known that DOG FOOD tasting would have made this book a best-seller!

I love coming here to laugh! Thank you!

Thanks for the chuckles! I LOVE Fringe!

What did you eat before going to bed? If I've eaten too much of what I'm not supposed to be eating, then I have "guilt" weird dreams.

I love your creative imagination!

LOL. It's probably I good thing I don't dream.

Dang it. What a waste of a dream. I would demand a re-do.

Too funny, Lid! You nearly always crack me up. I've learned to not sip my coffee until I'm done reading your post...

Dog food zombies, roflmbo! I might just have to go buy some for when the kids get too rowdy and try out this theory of yours...
