Heist the Golden Eggs!
Dreamed 2008/7/18 by Wayan
I'm in the lobby of a bank with two young guys as impulsive as kids. The bank's closed; after hours. From the lobby, huge locked twin doors lead to a long corridor and a second set of double doors, then the staff area and the vault.
They set up their... experiment. I just watch. Erect a launcher cradling a home-made rocket, aim it right at the crack of the outer doors, and step back to trigger it.
ROAR! The rocket blasts right through the first doors, and its payload-bomb cracks the inner doors. We sprint into the bank...
A bare room! Whaaat? There are a couple of suspicious floor-bulges in corners. I whack the nearest, biggest bulge with my ball-peen hammer. Yep. A plywood disk under the rug! (Have I joined them then, in what's clearly a robbery? Yes. This bank's up to something! The empty room proves they're not serving customers. Where's their money REALLY coming from?)
Pry up the disk--slowly. Wish I had a claw hammer! A second panel beneath--nailed down. Knock it loose. A third. Wow, they're really hiding this. A fourth. Fifth! Smaller and smaller...
Below #6, a well full of... egg flats, holding 20 each. Big eggs. GOLDEN eggs. As I suspected. This bank has imprisoned a magic goose somewhere. They're sentient. That's criminal. Slavery!
The cops meet us at the door. I don't fight them, though one boy does. I wasn't part of the plan, just a passer-by, and besides, I see no need to run. That's just these boys' impulsiveness again. They didn't plan, so we won't get the gold--but the bank won't dare press charges, either. They can't afford to.
Not when golden goose eggs'd be Exhibit A.
Still, though I won't see jail time, it's frustrating. All this for nothing! For lack of a little planning.
NOTES IN THE MORNING
This was just one of a slew of dreams during this period advising me to forget get-rich-quick schemes and research long-term ethical investing. Take my time, do my homework, get rich slow.
