I had another funny dream this morning — I was reading a Daily News tabloid that had a big headline proclaiming “THAT’S NOT SPOCK!” and a photo of Nimoy in a old bathrobe on stage in an angry stance. The article read “Cursin’ Grumpy Grandpa rules the Broadway Stage!” It proceeded to explain that Nimoy’s latest venture was playing a Grouchy, intolerant, Archie Bunker-like character in a new musical! There were photos of him laughing and mingling with the cast, and comments that “He really enjoys this, it’s so out of character for him!” And I could hear someone say that he’d be performing in it BOTH of the theaters named after him on NYC and LA! (In reality there’s only the one in NYC).
As I looked at the ad, I thought “Wait, he’ s in a play? I’d love to see this! Then I thought “But wait…” and I quickly scanned for the date; it was dated 2012. I had missed it.
I wonder what brought this on? I had been reading a Daily News in the cafe at Wegman’s yesterday, and its tabloid style was clearly all over the paper in the dream. I’ve also been thinking of going to NYC lately, and Nimoy occasionally pops up in my dreams. Maybe somewhere in my brain The Lazy Song was playing too, and that would explain the bathrobe!
