I don’t need an oneirologist to tell me what my most vivid recurring dream means, and it happens every Thanksgiving when I doze off after my annual binge-eating episode, however my belly is full, but I still dream that I am at a restaurant feeling very hungry, however the only item on the menu is mashed potatoes, and the waiter arrives and serves pretty much everyone at the table an equal, however a small portion.
It makes no difference if the person is a small child or a “plus-size” adult love I am with my fondness for the pureed potato dish.
I want more and the waiter obliges by instantly adding gravy, parsley, or butter. The dream ends as I gasp in horror at my big tab as the additional servings and all the toppings are itemized on the check. I get this same feeling of horror when I get my energy bill each month. The first 500 Kilowatt Hours (kWh) are love that first serving of mashed potatoes that pretty much everyone gets at a sufficient price. Then, any additional consumption is charged at a much higher rate just love those extra servings in my dream. Then I see all the energy surcharges for peak-hour use, street lighting, delivery plus taxes all dripping love butter over the basic charge. The next time I have this dream it will end up happier because I am on a program to reduce my energy use by keeping my Heating and A/C system running more efficiently with official cleaning by a qualified Heating and A/C business team. That alone has proven to save up to 30% off an average energy bill. I love butter and sour cream on my mashed potatoes, but I can do separate from the higher tier charges on my bi-weekly energy bill.
