Last night I had such a weird dream I just had to write about it. And since it pertained to toy collecting, this was the perfect place.
In my dream I went to Frank Gorshin’s house. If you don’t know, Frank Gorshin played the Riddler in the orginal Batman TV series.
Apparently, in my dream anyway, Frank was a toy collector. He had a massively huge collection of toys from every era. Not to mention movie props and more. It was quite a feat getting into his house, but it was quite amazing.
Strangely enough, he was having a sale. A lot of guys were standing around making bids on toys.
I am the type of person who beats around the bush when trying to decide on if I want to buy something or not. This dream was just that. There was a special 3-pack of Optimus Primes that was priced right. Something like $7.99. I thought about it and thought about it, but did not bid right away. When I finally did go to buy it, it was sold.
My dream is two fold. One being that I have a tendency to miss out on toys from not getting them when I see them, and then later going back. The other is my unease about talking to strangers. 32 years old, you would think I could talk to a stranger. Well, I can. It is dealing with people when talking about money that really makes me uneasy.
Well, when I woke up, the dream was so vivid in my mind. Unfortunately I still don’t have that mythical 3-pack of Primes. 🙂
