Benji's un-birthday

I just woke up, and the end of a dream had ben in it. I had been at a farmer's market and got him a birthday present (real birthday is in the fall) and it was a like a kid's school project: a painted wooden stationery box from the store. It was a garish yellow and blue with Benji nicely written on top in black. The paint was still wet, and inside was two cookies and a big hot dog in a bun. It was a pretty modest gift, wet paint and all, but ben was very gracious and pleased to receive it.
When I was in college, we talked about Freudian theories and symbols a lot: a hot dog on a bun with two cookies in a box?????
Hope ya'll are having a good weekend.

Hmm... I had a dream I left the milk out... sitting on the piano, no less. Happy un-birthday, Ben!
