"Oh, Auntie Em! You have to believe me. This really happened."

Last night I dreamed that I was a member of the legendary vocal group the Hi-Lo's and we were in the studio recording an album, "The Hi-Lo's Meet the Four Tops." Inasmuch as the Tops had not had a chance to rehearse with us beforehand, I was meeting the group for the first time. We were just going to jam and take our chances. I shook hands all-around and was especially excited to be meeting their lead singer, Levi Stubbs, for the first time. In the dream, he had a very strong grip.

Most of the resultant CD session was also part of my dream, including the recording of a song I had never heard before entitled "Promises in a Secret Garden." But now, I can't remember how it went. We also sang "Sunrise, Sunset" in the dream.

I can just hear you saying now, "My my my, Dr. Chilledair, what a rich, full fantasy life you must lead!"

That's a great dream. I have dreams like that, except in my dream, I am Blossom Dearie and I am doing duets with James Brown.
