It is 5 pm. A very nice summers day, not overly hot or humid, just a faint breeze blowing.
I’m at my mom’s house. No one is there. Feels like I’m the only one whose been there in weeks. I step outside and all is silent, an eerie, empty feeling. Something is very wrong but I don’t know what? That is when I hear sirens and see smoke across town.
I run inside and listen to the police scanner by the dinning room window gazing at the cloud of smoke.
“His men are everywhere… it’s a war zone out here…” “Park Elementary has caught on fire” “We need emergency response teams here now!”
I know instantly who is responsible: The Joker. Why is he in Columbia? Doesn’t matter really, only thing that matters is stopping him. He is up to his old tricks again, harming the innocent, and causing chaos for no reason except his own amusement.
I run out of the house over towards the barn knowing I have to do something. The neighbors ask me what is going on as I run by. I tell them I’m not sure, but deep down, I know Columbia is in for a very long night.
As I open the barn, I hit the roof retracting button, then I run up the stairs to start the blimp inflation. I’ve never used the blimp before, but I know it isn’t a quick process to get it filled with hot air. With the streets in town surely blocked off, this is the only way I can get to the scene. Now I play the waiting game.
I have lost track of time and can still see the smoke from Park School. I honestly have no idea if the emergency is still pressing, or if the Joker’s are men still overwhelming the authorities? I haven’t listened to the scanner and my mind has been racing. The blimp is ready and so am I. I’m going to do all I can to put an end to this madness.
One could probably drive from my mom’s house to Park School in 5 minutes, unfortunately for me, the blimp doesn’t go that fast. As the fire at Park rages on and the Joker’s thugs still running wild in the streets, the sun starts to set.
As the blimp approaches Jansen’s Park, catty-corner from the school, it doesn’t take long to see that there is a small army of hostiles. I’m unable to locate the Joker, but the grunts waste no time in firing millions of bullets through the blimp, as if they were expecting me. As the blimp rapidly loses air, it looks like I’ll land right on top of a burning elementary school. I manage to escape the blimp before in lands in the tall flames.
Time to try to put an end to this. The police seem to have some of the Joker’s men surrounded on Jansen’s baseball diamond. As I run across the intersection from Park to Jansen’s I hear a shrieking laugh. Standing in the middle of the street, I turn and look down Cherry St. from the top of the hill, only to see blazing fires on each block for as far as I could see.
Still no sign of The Joker.
***I’ve had this dream 3 different times, none recently though. Each time was a little more revealing, but all end with my blimp burning up and The Joker still at large.***
I wonder how a dream guru would break this down? The obvious points of dissection would be fire, conflict, and no resolution. All I want to know is how the blimp fits in? I mean, that’s pretty cool that I have a blimp stashed in the barn isn’t it?
Anyone want to take a stab at breaking it down? Don’t be shy. Please do not limit responses to just the blimp part either. ====> To the comment section!
