I’ve been having recurring bad dreams lately. The kind that leaves you waking up up feeling particularly sad. It happened again while I was on newborn call, and I was glad to see Mehwish working at the computer next to me.
Me: Mehwish…I just had a horrible dream.
Mehwish: What happened Jasmine?
Me: ..No, nevermind. It’s stupid.
Mehwish: No, tell me.
Me: I dreamt I just bought this goldfish, very cute little goldfish that I loved. It was in a bag, and I was sitting in a car, and I accidentally sat on it and I killed it with my fat ass.
Mehwish: Hahaha!
Me: It’s not funny! I really loved that little goldfish..
Mehwish (turning back to her work): Oh Jasmine, you’re so cute.

After not getting a lot of empathy from Mehwish, I brought up the dreams again while having a deep heart to heart conversation with Tricia about our life’s sorrows.

Tricia (interrupting me halfway through): Jasmine, are you trying to make me laugh?

No one understands. No one.

RIP, Goldfish. And please stop haunting my dreams

  1. Before Moira, the only pets I’d had were some goldfish from Walmart and a cricket we caught in the backyard. One of those goldfish actually made it past a few days at home and I was heartbroken when it died after about a month. RIP 25 cent goldfish :(

  2. I understand!

  3. I just wanted to add that I’m still glad Mehwish was nearby. It made me feel better and we did talk about other stuff afterwards.

  4. Maybe it is a warning, becareful not to sit on a baby.

  5. Steph had two Goldfish once, after they died she left them in their tank for a week until I came into town. Steph doesnt handle dead goldfish.
