Dream of:13 February 1997 "I'll Never Forget"
I was getting ready to take a trip from my home in Texas to Ohio to visit my father and my mother. It was early morning and I wanted to leave as soon as possible. But I hadn't yet packed, and I before I left, I still needed to straighten up the very messy house. Besides that, I needed to first do some yoga exercises, because I always felt much better driving on a long trip if I did the stretching exercises before leaving. I finally decided I would take care of everything first, and try to leave by noon. I had done that before on trips to Ohio. That way, instead of driving straight through, I would spend a night in a motel about half way there.
Carolina walked into the room, and when I saw her, I felt sad that I would be leaving her. She had recently begun a new job at a local television station, and today was only her second day of work. When I reached Ohio, I would tell my father about Carolina's new job. When he saw how quickly she had found the new job after her old television job, he would conclude that work must be plentiful in Texas, and he would question why I didn't get a job. I knew I could also easily find work if I wanted it, but I didn't want to work at the moment. However, I didn't like having to explain any of this to my father.
I asked Carolina what time she had to be at work, and she said 9:30 a.m. She also mentioned that she was going to go with her mother, Paz, to a funeral today. I had noticed that Carolina was wearing a white veil over her face so I couldn't see her features at all. Her wearing a white veil to a funeral seemed peculiar, but I didn't say anything about it.
Besides, I was feeling rather hurt, because I didn't think Carolina cared if I went to Ohio. In fact, part of the reason I was leaving was because I had lost a bet with Carolina. As part of the bet, she had required that if I lost, I would have to leave for a while. I felt hurt that she would have bet such a thing, and I said, "I'll never forget ...."
I told her I would never forget that she had made such a bet. She seemed to slightly regret the bet also, but she had more important things on her mind, and she continued with her business.
