i have this dream where i can't open my eyes.
i try to peel them open, but end up walking around with my eyes closed, straining to see.
i also can never seem to walk.
everything is in slow motion.
i have to dig my toes into the ground and reach forward with my arms to propel myself forward.
i never seem to get very far.
i will lean my body forward with the arms "a going," just in time to slow down again.
kind of like the carts at IKEA.
we get the cart going straight and then off to the side we go.
i always end up twirling the cart around in a circle in an attempt to straighten us out.
i've even tried pushing it at a slant in the hopes that maybe a wheel is crooked.
i look around and see all of the other carts being pushed with ease.
it can't be that i get the same bad cart every time i go.
am i dreaming?
