|Too much caffeine
If anyone says people don’t dream in color, I surmise that they don't drink coffee. After a nice little cuppa the other night, I dreamt that some well-meaning soul had given our art room a makeover in purple. Even the ceiling tiles had been repainted a grayish -violet. Our demonstration island as well as all desk and counter tops now glowed with purple laminate. I reached out to touch the transformed surface in disbelief and realized that our back counter and cabinetry had been entirely replaced with pale lavender hallway lockers. Quickly checking my watch, I calculated that I had exactly one minute to figure out where all my supplies had been moved before students spilled through the doorway. I could feel my heart pounding and a swell of panic rising as the hands on the clock approached 9:38. I woke up with a start as the bell rung. From here on out, I'll stick to decaf coffee after 7:00 p.m.
