Unhappy dreams this morning.

2007.06.05 - Airport
I was at the airport, waiting for a plane to go to Chicago. I watched as my bag and my cat were taken away by a porter. My cat, not in a carrier, sat serenely on the moving trolley, just watching me as she tends to do when she wants something. Once she disappeared into the throng of people, I started talking to the people around me. Most of them were players from the ECC LARP I play in.

At first, it was fun and made the long wait for the airplane go by faster. Then, the airport started getting more and more crowded and I felt hemmed in. It was too loud to role play and too many people kept interrupting us. All the while, I kept thinking about Esme and her being rolled away on the cart.

Suddenly, I realized two things: First, it was only a three day trip to Chicago. There was no need for me to take my cat. Second, I did not have her carrying cage with her. I could not believe the airport people would have let me check the cat onto the baggage claim without her in a carrier. I thought of how to fix this. Everything from buying a new carrier and taking it with me on the plane to demanding my cat back came to mind.

Finally, I decided that I needed to get my cat back and send her home. After standing in line for a long time, I got to the front and Toni was there. I explained what had happened and that I did not want my cat to be put on the plane. I wanted her here with me. Toni assured me that they would do everything they could to get my cat back to me.

She led me to a place in the back where they would bring me Esme. I anxiously watched the doors over and over as they opened and closed but did not reveal a person holding my cat. I woke up still waiting for her.

(I'm not even going to get into the dream about people coming into the bedroom, wanting to look through my SO's dresser drawers.)
