I’m wearing my contacts today for the first time in a while, which is weird and strange and also weird. Mainly I did it because the weather is BEAUTIFUL today and sunny, and I wanted to wear sunglasses. And I don’t have prescription sunglasses, so there you go.
More weirdness: I’ve been having bizarro dreams lately and a few nights ago I had a dream about a restaurant that served only breakfast food, and it had red lettering and started with the letter W. It was very 80s inside and sketchy and dirty and I remember being squicked out by the bathroom there but being really hungry for some breakfast food.
When I woke up, I was sure that I’d dreamed about a real place, and drove myself nuts trying to figure out what restaurant had been in my dream. Finally, it hit me: it was Winchell’s.
Why this is weird:
- I haven’t seen or heard anything about Winchell’s lately that I can consciously remember;
- While they had Winchell’s in Colorado, they don’t have them out here, and I haven’t lived in Colorado since 1992;
- To my knowledge, I’ve never set foot in a Winchell’s in my life.
I could be wrong on that last point, though. Still, it’s weird. Why the hell am I dreaming about a restaurant (donut store, really) that I vaguely remember from my childhood but quite possibly have never visited?
