I Had a Dream


In all my years of Rubinville, I think I've only mentioned actual dreams that I've had once or twice. (Due to the fact that generally speaking nobody likes hearing about other peoples dreams.) But then last night I had such a pleasant dream that I thought I'd be presumptuous enough to share it. If you can't deal with my presumptuousness, go check out TMZ.com, I'm sure there is something more more worthy there.

Anyhoo, here we go...

It was a really nice, sunny afternoon and I was sitting on a large outdoor porch with Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Cosby. We all were drinking iced coffee and Jerry was staring off into the distance. I said something to Bill, I don't remember what, but he had a big smile and kept nodding in approval.

That was pretty much it. I woke up in a great mood and went ahead and got myself an iced coffee. Seinfeld and Cosby weren't there though the homeless guy who hangs in the doorway of CVS near the cart where I get my coffee did nod at me. And then he barked at Emma.

Surely, a sign of something...

As Richard Dreyfuss said in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "This *means* something."

Funny, I turned my mashed potatoes into Bill Cosby last night, too.

Who knew that Dr. Dolittle had fallen on such hard times? Ask Emma what he said.

I thought about writing a "Gypsy" joke based on the title of this post "I Had a Dream." Then I thought, "Will Dave understand the 'Gypsy' reference?" Or will Hal be the only one to chuckle knowingly at my theater reference? So I gave up and went with the lame "Dr. Dolittle" quip. Seriously, Dave, we're going to have to gay you up or my jokes are going to suffer.

Hal said...

Funnily enough, Barry, I also considered making a "Gypsy" joke. (I mean, "I Had a Dream"? C'mon!) But I rejected it for the same reason, figuring it would be another case of "Barry and Hal talking their secret language." Speaking of "Gypsy," Barry, I'm sure you know that "Baby June" Havoc recently died at 92.

Barry said...

Yes, sadly I heard the news. Although we all know that her sister, Gypsy, actually died in 1962 when Rosalind Russell killed her. Thank you, and good night. I'll be here all week! Try the veal.

Hal said...

Everyone hates the movie of "Gypsy." I actually . . . sort of like it. But have you ever heard Roz's original tracks, before Lisa Kirk re-recorded most of them? My eardrums still haven't forgiven me.

Barry said...

Come on now, Hal. Of course I've heard Roz's original tracks. They're on par with Lucille Ball's singing in "Mame" and Audrey Hepburn's bleating attempts in "My Fair Lady," (before the joyous Marni Nixon replaced her) and the massacre of "West Side Story" that were Natalie Wood's deadly vocals. I was plagued with hysterical deafness for a week. Hey, Dave, how about those Mets?

First off, please never de-gay a joke for my reasons, that's what Google is for.

Secondly, can I arrage a meeting between you two? It's time.

Barry said...

Ha!

Hal said...

Oh Barry: Did you know that in the "Quartet" number ("Tonight" reprise) in "West Side Story," Marni Nixon dubbed not only Natalie Wood's part, but also Rita Moreno's? Apparently Rita and Betty Wand, who dubbed her in "A Boy Like That," were both under the weather the day the Quartet was recorded.

Barry said...

Yes, I did know that, Hal. I also know that Rita was unhappy with how Betty Wand dubbed her for "A Boy Like That;" Betty wasn't angry enough for Rita. How about those college hoops, Dave? Hell of a final game, huh? ;) Fuckin' A!

Hal said...

Speaking of Lisa Kirk, there were rumors that she was going to dub Lucy's vocals in "Lucy/Mame" (as the posters titled it), but apparently stupider heads prevailed. Nothing could have saved that movie, anyway. Hey Dave: Are more "Transformers" movies on the horizon?
