Dream of: 16 April 1994 "Beholden"

As I looked out the window of a bus I was riding, I realized I was in Miami, Florida. As I rode through the streets, I was surprised to see one auction after another taking place outside. On almost every block, groups of people were gathered around the items being sold. And it looked as if there was a wide variety of items, from cars and trucks to small items. Since I liked going to auctions, I thought this would be a good place for me to spend some time. It looked as if Miami was an auction Mecca. That seemed to make sense to me. Many elderly people with money came to Miami, and the auctions gave them a chance to spend the money.

I wanted to record some addresses of the auctions. In my hand I was holding a television remote control. But I also thought it served as a mini-computer, and if I just knew how to use it, I could record information on it. A helpful man (probably in is late 50s) sitting near me must have seen my dilemma, and spoke up. He said the remote control could indeed be used to record information. He showed me how to push a panel off the back of the control, revealing some intricate circuitry inside the control. Unfortunately, neither he nor I could figure out how to make the control work, and I concluded I would have to have someone who knew show me later.

I was in an apartment in which I was living in Miami. To my surprise, Dale (probably in his mid-30s) had come to visit me. With him was a dark-haired woman (probably in her early 30s). We talked for a while, as I tried to decide what we would do while they were in Miami. I knew I was beholden to Dale for a big favor which he had done for me once, and I wanted to show him as good a time as possible in Miami. Only after we had talked for quite a while did I realize that Dale and the woman were leaving the very next day. We needed to leave as soon as possible if they were going to see much of Miami.

I asked them if they had been to Miami Beach. They had, but we all thought it would be a good place to see again. I thought we could promenade along the strip of old hotels which front the beach. I had always liked that area. Even though they told me that had been to Miami Beach before, they thought it would be a good place to see again. We could stay out all night, roaming the city, hitting some clubs.

I began to dress. Only when I was standing there in my white under shorts and white shirt did I remember that a woman was in the room. But she didn't seem to mind, and I didn't think I had done anything inappropriate. When I looked in my closet, I saw that I didn't have much to wear. I saw a pair of blue Dockers and a khaki shirt which I liked. But I thought I would wear a blue dress shirt instead. The khaki didn't really go with the blue Dockers.
