I awoke this July 4th morning with a very vivid dream on my mind. It was a travel dream, with ships and planes providing the setting. When the old wooden sailing ship I was on landed, I found out that it was not continuing on to where I expected, and so I decided to travel by plane. [Much complication and detail omitted.]
What was odd was a new airline passenger screening process. Before being allowed to board the plane, passengers were first required to say the United States Pledge of Allegiance. That was easy, but the second requirement was a problem. Everyone had to answer 4 American government/citizenship questions. In the dream I just couldn’t quite comprehend the questions. The first question seemed to be about details of the vote in Congress passing the law that created the new passenger screening process. Of course, I had been on a ship right before, and knew nothing about the new legislation.
It was a complicated mess, as dreams can be, and was not resolved before I woke up, much to my relief.
Happy Independence Day.
