I finally had an Obama dream! I just wish it were a little more exciting.

I was in a grocery store kitchen/food prep area; I had been trying to find someone who could open a can of soup for me. Apparently only certain people had kitchen privileges to get to the can opener, and everyone seemed busy and/or afraid to get in trouble by opening the can.

Anyway, as I was trying to find someone, I heard my name! I turned around and saw that one of the workers was a boy my sister had dated in high school, and started chatting with him. He sent his brother/cousin to open the can for me, as we continued to talk. As the brother/cousin came back with the open can, I looked over and saw Barack Obama sitting maybe 15 or 20 feet from us on a folding chair, smiling and talking to someone, apparently before making a presentation in the other room. It seemed very natural and calm; he was relaxed, and people weren't staring or mobbing him. I thought, "I am very close to Barack Obama!" but didn't feel inclined to rush up and introduce myself or anything.

oh! i hope you're going to submit it to the candidate dreams blog (if they're still taking dreams, that is).

Thanks for reminding me; I just submitted it. But then I got an automated reply saying they're no longer being posted (but are being saved for posterity, apparently!).
