Spagmare – def: A nightmare about waiting tables at the Old Spaghetti Factory… usually involving getting overwhelmed with tables and falling behind your orders.
For the first time in years I had a spagmare. Last night I dreamed I started waiting tables again and forgot how to do everything. Of course this resulted in angry customers and no way to resolve it… kind of like when you can’t runaway in a dream. I used to have these spagmares all the time (I worked there for 8 years), but they laid dormant for many years until it erupted last night. I blame a combination of rain, the neighbor’s pool, 4am singing birds, a full bladder, and possibly Prince of Persia (which was pretty decent movie by the way). All I can say is that I was glad to wake up.
