The Street and The Sky

While visiting Florida over the summer, we drove down this street. I don’t know the name of the street, but for obvious reasons, I call it ‘Easy Street’ in my head.

‘Easy Street’ is without doubt the most beautiful street I have ever seen. The houses are simply breathtaking and if by some chance they allow crazy people to live here, I’d love to call it home someday.

Last night I had a dream.

It involved me driving down ‘Easy Street’ in this:

The top was down. The sky was bright. The sun was shining. And I was hollerin’ like a crazy person.

There was a Dr. Pepper in the cup-holder (with a lid of course), the radio was blaring Me Against The World by 2Pac (because apparently that’s how I roll in my dreams) and I was hollerin’ like a crazy person.

Shemar Moore waved as I drove past. And so did Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

My sunglasses were on. My hair was a hot-mess (as it is most days), and heads were turning to see what the commotion was, coming from that bright yellow car. It was me, hollerin’ like a crazy person.

I was hollerin’ like a crazy person because after four v-e-r-y-l-o-n-g years, I was finally driving my dream car.

My smile was wide and I had not a care in the world.

It was a day I had dreamt of (ha!) for years and now, after all this time, here I was.

Just me. My dream car. And this beautiful day.

I might have heard a choir of angels.

And then, as it does every morning at 6:40 AM, this obnoxious monster had to rear its ugly head reminding me that it was time to wake up.

And I realized I had been dreaming.

It was all just a beautiful, perfect dream.

Which I should have known, because in real life, I would have been driving a (chili pepper) red one.

Whether I’m fast asleep or wide awake, you can pretty much count on me hollerin’ like a crazy person because I am one.

Someday Saturn Sky.

    What do you mean they waved at you? Geez girl you need to work on your dreaming where Shamar and Maksim are actually in the car with you.
    You can cram to men in a 2 seater with you. Just get more creative in your dreams..

    I was really expecting a much different end to this dream. Like it was actually AR screaming because you brought it to school to pic up the boys could only fit one other person in that yellow thing and you chose Stevie. Or maybe you hit a rock and it flung out and chipped Shemar’s tooth. Or… I don’t know, maybe you woke up and it was sitting there in your garage, yellow, with a mouse in the passengers seat…

    That would be Eastlawn Drive in Celebration, FL. :-D. It is a breath-taking neighborhood! Maybe someday – but you’d miss the ‘Ville. 😉
