Dream of:09 September 2007 "When You Were Old"
I was visiting Carolina (about 30 years old) in a house (it actually seemed more like an apartment) where she was living. As I was standing in the kitchen, I began to wonder what would happen if Carolina's husband Sal came home. I asked her about him and she said he had moved into another apartment where he was living with another woman. The situation seemed a little odd to me, but apparently Carolina wasn't worried about his showing up.
Suddenly, however, I heard someone at the door and almost immediately I saw a man walk through the house. I quickly realized the man was Sal. I crouched down on my hands and knees behind a table so he couldn't see me. I felt vulnerable, dressed only in white under shorts. I managed to slip out of the kitchen and into the bedroom, where I got onto the bed and listened to Carolina and Sal arguing outside.
Apparently Sal left, and Carolina walked into the bedroom. She said we weren't going to have a problem, but suddenly Sal returned and walked right into the bedroom. I stood on one side of the bed while he stood on the other. He was a burly fellow (probably in his mid 30s) with long black hair. He almost looked as if the sight of me was causing him pain. He had his fists doubled and it looked as if he were going to come around the bed and attack me. I quickly said, "I'll file charges against you."
I told him if he hit me, he would lose his job. He stopped. He had a pained look on his face as if he didn't know what to do. I pointed to Carolina and said, "She invited me in."
I wanted him to know I had a right to be here. I pointed my finger at him and charged, "You stole my wife."
I told him that he certainly didn't have any right to hit me.
He turned and walked out the door. After he had left the room, I could hear a girl's voice from somewhere in the house. It sounded as if she said, "You taught me when you were old."
I couldn't understand what the girl meant, but then I realized the girl must be Sal's daughter. I thought he had a young daughter (about 10 years old) who was living here with him and Carolina. I concluded the voice must that of the daughter.
