Silly Sunday: Dream a Little Dream

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Sweetie was telling me the other day that he'd had a very strange dream the night before.  He said it had something to do with mayonnaise, but he wasn't sure what.  It really made me glad that i don't remember my dreams the vast majority of the time.

Thibodeaux be tellin' Boudreaux 'bout a dream he done had.

"I done died," Thibodeaux say, "an' when I gets to de Pearly Gates, St. Pete done give me a piece of chalk.  He take me to a ladder, an' he tell me to climb up an' start at de top o' dis big chalk board, writin' down all my sins.

"As I climb de ladder, I see dat you done died, too, an' you be comin' down you own ladder.  So I say, 'Good fo' you, Boudreaux, you done finish writin' all you sins!'

"An you say, 'Mais, no, I don' be finish, I be comin' down fo' more chalk!'"
