As I have documented, Jobu has a bad habit of waking me up when I try to sleep. I woke one early morning to Jobu whining. It was louder and more incessant than his normal whine. I mostly try to ignore his attempts to disturb my sleep but I got worried that something was actually wrong.
I climbed out of bed “What’s wrong Jobu? What’s wrong?”
Jobu slowly walked out of the room and I followed. He went into the kitchen to his food dish and looked at me begging. There was still food in his dish. It was about a quarter full.
“Really? You woke me up for this?”
He looked at me “Daddy I’m going to die.”
I sighed and filled his food dish.
He sniffed the fresh food and gave me a look like, I don’t want this. Then he walked away.
A couple of days later I was sleeping in late and the whining started. “DADDY DADDY GET UP TERRIBLE THINGS ARE HAPPENING!”
I get up and he walks past me and jumps on the bed to curl up where I had been sleeping. I guess I was getting up. Two minutes later he comes out of the bedroom and curls up in his cat bed.
Saturday night I was unusually tired and went to sleep early. Just a little after ten pm and it was time change day so I’d probably be awake really early. I had plans to drive up to Chicago for a lunch and to see my parents. I woke up at about 2 and went to the bathroom. I was amazed how cold it was and I was getting chills. Back under the blankets everything was super warm. I had some dreams I didn’t remember and woke up again just an hour or so later. I got up to pee again. It was all cold again and I had chills and it was hard to maintain my balance. After climbing back into the warm bet I wondered if maybe I had a fever.
There were four big cubes of different colors. I had to get the cubes all together properly so I could get out. I could control the cubes but the cubes could control me. I kept trying to get the cubes right so I could get out. I got them all in a square that formed a bigger cube but then there was a giant.
I awoke in a pool of sweat. I went into the bathroom and checked my temperature.. Yep I had a fever. I went back to bed where thankfully I didn’t dream of anymore cubes.
Some friends and I have a habit of playing trivia on Wednesday evenings. We play Buzztime trivia at Buffalo Wild Wings. One of my friends mentioned a live trivia contest with prizes and so we decided to give it a try. The first week was horrid with us coming in last. The next time we kick but and only missed 7 total points. The prize was a gift card to the place we were at. Guess we’ll be going back.
