Fifty Sixth Friday Flash: A Bird Fossil Made out of Rubbish

Image Source (the closest image I could find)

 *I don't have a fiction piece prepared so I will tell you about the dream I had last night. I don't remember them often so I thought I would write it down before I forget. It seems to jump around like a The Simpsons episode. Pieces may have been created post dream to fill in the gaps. I'm not sure what I'm trying to prove here, but it may convince you I'm at least a little crazy.

It opens up to a massive concert hall. There are two men in suits dancing in front of a large jazz band. The crowd loves it. Later at the Red Bull sponsored after party a reporter asks one of the front men some questions.

“What's next for the band?”

“A world tour. It will be tricky once we get to places like Egypt.”

Next there's a truck sliding and struggling along an icy road. It comes to a skidding stop on a big snow covered field. Men get to work setting up. In the end there's a massive tent with long green guide ropes to tie everything down.

“We forgot the stage!” someone shouts.

“Don't worry, we'll just hold the concert outside.”

Everyone seems to think this is a good idea.

A moment later (could be longer) I'm browsing a flea market. There's an art piece in a glass tank. It's a bird fossil made out of rubbish created at 11:11am on the 11th of the 11th 2011.

Leaving the market stall I'm knocked over by a group of men running away carrying oversized car exhausts. Picking myself up I shrug and carry on.

A stall holder then reaches out and hands me some money. Perplexed I just stand there.

“Come in, I will give you a free dental check up.”

I've been having some trouble so I go in. Then I have a horrid inside mouth view of him fiddling with my teeth. In the process he loses one of my fillings, but he doesn't seem to be very bothered or keen to fix it.

Stuck in a foreign country with a missing filling I wake up soon after.   


  1. Seems like the average sensibility of my dreams. At least you got free dental care out of the oddities, Craig.

  2. I've had dreams jump around like that. Yours are no weirder than mine, as far as I can see. But I don't dream of dental work.

  3. It's unfortunate that the dream had to leave you waking up in a foreign land without one of your fillings. I hate going to the dentist and the thought of being able to see what they see in the dream realm isn't going to make it any better.

  4. Did you have a cheese sandwich before going to bed? LOL

    I had a strange dream the other night - I dreamt it was Christmas Day and I'd forget to get the joint out of the freezer. By some miracle the supermarket was open, I found myself wandering around it and there on the shelf was a turkey small enough to meet my needs. I grabbed it, but then I searched and searched for a packet of Pazo stuffing mix, but alas none was to be found! Very Strange as I never use pkt mixes like that..... and no I didn't have a cheese sandwich either before going to bed. ^__^

    1. I didn't, that I remember :P. It's very weird how we found ourselves doing things we wouldn't normally do while awake.

  5. I've never had that dream exactly, but I bet I've had plenty just as weird... or weirder. :)

  6. I am amazed you remember so much of it - my dreams are often so garbled :) I have to ask - what dance were those men doing??? with the jazz band? And by the way the green tent does prove one thing Craig -- you dream in color and that is supposed to be very significant for us creative types - there is hope.

  7. It could have been worse. You might have been naked through the whole ordeal.

  8. Hello there! This post couldn't be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
