I took a nap this afternoon and to my delight, had a dream about food! In my dream I had to write a jingle for a commercial, and the product being advertised was chocolate chip cookies.
When I sat down in front of my piano, I had writer’s/composer’s block and really didn’t know how to begin. Then an old black lady appeared and gave me spectacular advice. She suggested the following lyrics:
“Chocolate cookies you gotta have, honey! Even if it means selling your baby for money!”
So I followed the old lady’s advice and wrote a catchy jingle about selling babies for cookies. Then when the commercial aired, people actually took the lyrics to heart and started selling their babies! Then I saw on the news that parents were being arrested for selling babies, and they had to ban my commercial.
Anyhoo, as you can imagine, I woke up from the dream with the most intense craving for chocolate chip cookies. Unfortunately, it’s raining outside and I don’t have a vehicle to get me to the nearest grocery store. Nor do I have any babies to sell.
