The Dreaming – Installment #21

The Dreaming

     A new face smiled at her uncertainly as he looked at all the options on the table.

“I’m Dana,” she smiled to welcome him.  “Jason’s mom.  Please help yourself to anything you like. You’re doing me a favor by eating it.”

“Yeah, Carter, eat up man.  We do this every week.”  Jeremy, Jason’s best friend since third grade told him while tasting a roasted vegetable infused rice.  “Good one, Mrs. C.”

“I’m glad.  I still remember eating too much spaghetti and peanut butter in college.  It doesn’t always have to be that tight.”

Brittany waved a last cheery goodbye and let herself out.

Jason and his friends arrived with their reliable appetites.  Dana watched them move down the table, loading their plates, passing up the questionable looking butternut squash chili she knew tasted great.

Brittany arrived as she put the last test batch in the freezer for the notes on which dishes would freeze well. Brittany was her on-call maid for days like this. The kitchen was destroyed. Brittany was happy to clean it for $10.00 an hour and food to take with her.

They sat together at the table tasting the chocolate mint cheesecake she had finally nailed. Brittany was making sounds of pleasure and licking her fork for nonexistent crumbs, saving her a precious question.

Where did that come from?

The Dreaming

Dana knew they were only halfway through the first list. “Man,” she thought, “if I wanted to work this hard I would just wake up.”

“Wake up!” One of her sweet 16-year-olds was shaking her. “I can’t find my blue plaid jacket and I told Jim I would wear it today.”

The dregs of the dream dissolved into the familiar surroundings of her own king-sized, pillow topped mattress with the iron head and foot board she adored. She was wearing her cozy faux suede green sweats. And she was, thankfully, no longer doing kitchen duty in The Dreaming.

She might as well give it a try. The first order was chicken and dumplings, Perrier, and a slice of apple pie a la mode. She stood in front of one of the tubes and visualized the order coming down and settling on the tray.

The Perrier appeared on one tray with a clear glass of ice beside it.

The apple pie a la mode appeared on another tray.

The Dreaming

Tension started to roll off her, her confidence building. She could do this! Gosh darn it!

The three of them stood there for what felt like hours. Nothing happened. She considered whether or not to ask another question. There was, after all, no guarantee that she would get an answer.

She studied the clear tubes in the walls that ended in metal trays, and the list she now held in her hand. It seemed that the food must come down the tubes. Her logical mind laughed at her. Why would any of this qualify as logical?

The Dreaming – Installment #8

Puzzled, but confident that everything could still work out well, a flash of insight came to her. “Can I please have more questions?”

The silver-haired man blinked at her, silently.

What she assumed was a dinner bot came through an opening bearing a tray with a three foot long list trailing from it. She stood six feet tall and looked like any waitress Dana would normally imagine. “Orders,” she said in a robotic monotone.
