Politically Incorrect?

My new AM must-see TV is "Morning Joe" on MSNBC.  For three hours every day I am bombarded with all the things that make me want to jump off a bridge getting an education on all our current and pressing concerns in this world.  The resulting soup in my head isn't pretty.  At all.

Here is a dream I had a few nights ago:

I was on vacation with President and Mrs. Obama, Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner, and a friend of mine who lives in Chicago.  We were all in a tropical spot, and I was charged with babysitting the Obama's baby boy.  A chubby-cheeked, happy, drooling lily-white baby boy.  Mrs. Obama needed my services to keep this baby in sunscreen.  He was blindingly white, and I had to apply his sunscreen constantly.  The challenge was that it came in a chapstick applicator, and the baby wanted to eat it.  Even worse, every chance he got, he would put the top in his mouth.  And if he choked, it would be my fault.  So I decided I would reason with him, and looked him in his baby blue eyes and calmly explained that he couldn't do that any more.  And he obeyed me.  The end.

What's your take on this?  I think I must be needed in Washington.  Like, yesterday.

You dream of the Obama's kids, too? So did I a few weeks back...what does this mean? Well, perhaps you are so anamored with the new administration (as 68% of us are) that you would be a true American offer your abilites to improve our economy. I know...what a stretch?
But why would the Obama's have a snow white baby?
If for no other reason, your dream was entertaining...for you and me!

My, your dreams are much more noble than mine! I personally think the chubby little blue-eyed, lily-white baby boy who listened to you has to do with your impending empty-nestedness. But don't listen to me because my dreams are all...only about that which sometimes produces baby boys. No wonder I'm so befuddled upon waking. What the hell is with these weird-in-one-way-or-another dreams, anyway! :)

TSannie said...

Ok....that was weird in a kind of interesting way.

As engrossed as I am in all things POTUS, I have yet to have a political dream.

Yes, get thee to Washington and get some of those folks to listen to you!

winetipper said...

What struck me most was the food/eating component. I'm guessing you're still on your diet ...

By the way, Chapstick is delicious.

mom x 2 said...

Hmmm, I think you should head on over to DC. They can use all the help they can get... even if it is just to keep Obama's lily-white baby immersed in chapstick like sun screen!

Happy Friday!

Sassy said...

Your dreams aren't much weirder than some politicians views....it was kinda crazy and I did get a kick out of reading it...did you have much to drink before that dream? I agree with Kim-d...maybe something to do with your upcoming separation...=0{

Was it Cherry Flavored chap stick...that one is my favorite.

That would be really ironic if she ended up pregnant and had a white, blue eyed baby...not completely out of the realm of possibility.

Trisha said...

Interesting dreams you have! Your conclusion that you are needed in Washington - I agree. Start packing!

Mary Lee said...

I think you should have stopped the dream at "vacationing at a tropical spot" and ignored the rest of the dream! Have a great Friday.

Lisa said...

Ok, the baby represents the economy. So precious and new and has to be tended to constantly or else all will "choke" and die. You calmly explaining why the baby can not put the "cap" in its mouth and the baby obeying is your desire to be heard, your desire to control the situation that is way out of control. And the baby obeying .....is just flat all too unrealistic proving that you still live in a dream world!!!!! ha ha ha....that was funny wasn't it!?? You surely didn't think I was going to be seriour about all of this did you?

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I think you're needed in Costa Rica. Day before yesterday.

Debra (a/k/a Doris, Mimi) said...

Oh dear...this is serious. Seriously disturbed. You poor woman. I prescribe a heavy dose of crisp, tart Riesling for what ails you. If you drink the entire bottle - alone - in less than 10 minutes you're well on your way to being an elected official. May the force be with you.

Suz Broughton said...

I think a babysitter at The White House is a great idea!

Country Girl said...

I'd like to know what you are ingesting in the evenings.

Only because I want some, too.

Keetha said...

Get thee to D.C., pronto. Our nation needs you.

Grandma J said...

I think the whole tending to the baby thing means that Raul Castro needs you to go down to Cuba and change Fidel's diapers.

Kacey said...

hm, what did you eat before you went to sleep??? But I'm impressed if you talked to any child and they obeyed... *g

Qwah!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

wow you are one powerful mama... to talk to a baby and it listenes LOL... I am with Kim D nesting issues ... i am sure washington needs all the help it can get and with Obama being mixed it is so possible for one of his kids to be lily white with blue eyes... :) or maybe it was the seeing of bradley all nestled inside his momma that made you dream... or somethign you ingested? tainted wine?
LOl have a great friday!

Treasia said...

OMG your dreams crack me up. I have no clue what it means unfortunately however.

Daryl said...

I think it was really that pup that you rescued .. you were having guilt issues and needed a glass of wine... or not

noble pig said...

It means you need to give birth to another baby. You have all the wisdom and answers now and mothering would be a cinch.

Decadent Housewife said...

It means Michelle's pregnant. :)

Zerilda The Superfluous Blogger said...

okay i am very good at this. where to start, where to start.

first of all, i'm getting that you weren't potty trained until you were 20, hence the chapstick, which actually represents your secret desire to be rubbed all over someone's lips.

next, there is the vacation. that represents your subconscious desire to be a man. because you would 'take a vacation' from being a woman. the lily white, of course (this is all textbook, i have a psychology degree), represents your unwillingness to commit to a regular dishwashing routine. you need to just let that go.

now, the issue of blaming yourself for a choking incident. this is a classic mom-of-college-kids issue. wow i wish i had a dime for everytime someone told me they had kids and college and dreamed about being blamed for choking a baby. it is just TOO common.

but dreaming of tim geithner means you think he is hot.

have i helped? i think so. that will be $3000.

Pouty Lips said...

I'll take it from here. It's not a political dream but a happy baby dream, which in this case, I believe represents requited love. We are all so unbelievably happy like children in the ice cream parlor because we have a good president. I think you feel supported by our new president and you want to return the support. OMG, how is that for a completely no-nonsense response from the nonsensical one?

Innkeeper Seely said...

Who knows? I also dreamt that Mrs. O was preggers. Sometimes a dream is just a dream.....

Debbie said...

You obviously want Joe. It's winter and you are worried about your lips being soft for all those kisses.

You think this is the answer to your empty-nest problem. (baby in dream). You're thinking if Joe is not enough for you, you may need a 3 some. Isn't this obvious?

Of course, all this has to be done in Washington. Not CT! Squazz is there.

numberonesistah said...

Umm..I think either medications are messed up or not enough wine has been ingested lately.

Gonna have to change your name to Mentally Ill Mama. ;o)

RiverPoet said...

Sounds like you want to be Obama's Baby Mama! ;-)

Peace - D

Susiewearsthepants said...

I wont even attempt to pretend to be intelligent enough to interpret your dreams. However, maybe you are getting a little too much news? That or it could be something you ate.

Super nanny to the rescue!
