Delirium dreams

You know how sometimes when you are sick your head feels really heavy and you can't move it very fast? Maybe you have a fever and sore throat and stuffy sinuses. And when you sleep it's sort of a groggy delirium? Well, I've been sick for the past 4 days and just woke up from a stupor this morning which I will probably fall back into in a couple of hours…  (it's why I haven't posted anything recently.)

I was dreaming about soccer, specifically about kicking the ball as hard as I could to get it out of our defense. And when I kicked it, it curved a bit to the right and was beautiful. Slow motion… Everything else–the players, the field–was indistinct. Just my foot and the ball's arc.

I haven't played soccer in any serious way for like 18 years. But now I feel like playing again… šŸ˜› Problem is, if I start playing again, I'll remember how much I sucked.
