The feast is still months away, my bid isn't even accepted yet, but 
I'm having nightmares about it.

I was taking a nap at home, not my current apartment, but our old 
house with the kitchen on the second floor, .. and the local cooking 
laurel showed up with ten (not enough!) whole chickens, frozen solid. 
It was 6 o'clock, time to serve and nothing was cooked, nothing was 
even shopped for yet.

We were running around my place, trying to find enough food to feed 
100 people. I couldn't find my menu or shopping list or recipes.  I'd 
thrown away the paper copy and the computer files were gone.

I ran back up the stairs for one more armload of food, when I came 
down, everyone else had left for the event, which had switched to 
some new place, and I didn't know where it was.

Then I was in some fancy store, taking an escalator to find apples, 
and the only ones they had were in gift baskets hanging high on the 
wall, and I couldn't get anyone to take them down for me. I'd 
forgotten the saffron, and no one had any.

It could be worse, I could have had nightmares about the new job, 
that I start later today.
