A whale of a dream

I had a whale of a time in my dream last night. I met Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. I forget which moon we were on but we had a wonderful time, drinking pina coladas and lolling about in the sand under the palms.

Michael kept checking his watch and muttering about moon time versus earth time. Buzz scoffed at him, “Always keeping to the schedule.”

When I looked across at the bright blue ball slowly spinning in the darkness, I saw a big spotted cat staring back at me and wondered where I could buy some milk in case it was thirsty.

Another pina colada and things started spinning around, up was down and down was up. That’s when I fell sideways. My cell phone rang and when I answered a voice said, “Is Michael there? Tell him it’s time to come home but to put the cat out before he leaves."

I woke up suddenly. Wow that was a whale of a dream!
