19122017

 

name of dream:

a night out 1

 

it was evening and i was on my own

 

seemed a good idea to go and socialise, perhaps find someone and fall in love

 

went to one of the more popular drinks and dance places

 

it had a low roof, two and a third metres or so

 

there were one metre wide round pillars spaced evenly at about three metres apart

 

it looked as though there was thirty or forty of the cylindrical columns

 

there was a wooden collar that went around the pillars at a little below chest height

 

the collars were deep enough to rest the elbows on

 

against two of the walls and forming an l-shape were comfortable-looking sofas which could set three people

 

it was mainly males in the drink and talk area and they outnumbered the women by three or four to one

 

still, it was fairly early and the ladies wouldn't want to get there too early, it might give the wrong impression

 

i got a drink and went and sat on the comfortable seating next to the entrance doors which led to the dance area

 

the lounge seats were, unbeknown to me, exclusively for the women

 

i started getting glares from the men

 

i could see something was upsetting them but was completely in the dark as to what it might be

 

the longer i sat there the more people turned to look and i could see some muttering going on among the men as they looked at me

 

i knew trouble could flare up but i assumed someone would come and tell me what is that was wrong before it got to that stage

 

someone came over alright, in fact, three someones came over

 

they thought i was deliberately provoking them and weren't about to engage in dialogue

 

they were ready to wade in as the dream ended
