Family Jewels

When I was a kid, my brothers and I were lucky (?) enough to have a TV in our bedroom. One Saturday morning I woke up from a dream where I was playing the piano. The song was beautiful. I ran downstairs and began composing this dream song. My parents, as did I, thought it was genius. Hours later while watching cartoons with my brothers, a commercial for a stupid jewelry store came on with some stock-footage classical music in the background. Lo and behold, my masterpiece was in fact a dream induced dupe. Robbed of (and in) my sleep, I couldn’t quite get back into that particular episode of Spider Man and Friends.

I hate waking up. This is why I stopped setting my alarm to music. To this day I can’t hear ‘In the Air Tonight’ by Phil Collins without feeling an intense anxiety about a 6th grade math test I didn’t study for. Which is a shame because that one drum fill is wicked awesome.
