dude

i don't know this man, this man who walked into the room and headed straight for me. i don't know this man, this incredibly gorgeous man with dark hair and enough stubble to hurt my face.
i don't know why he lifts me onto the desk or why he starts kissing me without even speaking, but i know that in this moment i want these kisses, this man, more than anything i've ever wanted in my life. i float outside the embrace and see the pairing, delicious, slow, restrained in a way that is merely marking time, the ferociousness of it won't allow the restraint for much longer, this man, who is this man, who gives a shit who this man is as long as he doesn't stop.

in the background i notice a noise, distracted but still full of this man my mind drifts, i recognize this sound, a whimpering that rises louder. i push this away, this distraction from this man, but it grows louder. i see myself pausing, the embrace gains some distance as my mind works to place this sound that doesn't fit into this small room with this dark haired man, his hands....

mommy, MOMMY, wake UP! help me! WAKE UP!

dammit. the man fades as my consciousness rises. my child is awake.

five more minutes would have been really, really nice.

There is still plenty of time to donate to Open Arms Home as part of our May Just Post Roundtable. As of today we've raised over $915.00! (Mad has a giving thermometer going over her way that shows $650 as the total for last night but that will be updated today with our new figure). Thank you to everyone who has given so far, it's amazing what we can do in just 36 hours.

Also, don't forget to send me your Just Post links by the 7th to girlplustwo(at)yahoo(dot)com. All of the posts for Open Arms and the Just Posts will be featured on the 10th.

Oh, sister. I can't tell you how many times I've had dream interruptus...ouch!

(wait! look! i'm first today!)

Tabba said...

Jen - forgive me if you said how long.... but. How long do we have to donate? I really can't swing anything until the end of the week.
(we live hand-to-mouth like that)

jen said...

tabba, no problem. we were hoping to have the donations in by the 10th, if that helps. but if it's later, it all still goes to the cause. thank you!

thailandchani said...

That dream... LOL... Oh, heaven! (laughing)


Peace,

meno said...

Hey, i know that man. I think i saw him last night, or maybe early this morning.

Lucia said...

Oh, I am so so psyched that there's that much $ in the pool! Hurray! Hurray!

Maybe now that you're done with that guy he'll have time to visit me. I don't have a child to interrupt!

slouching mom said...

LOL, Lucia!

PunditMom said...

I HATE it when that happens! :O

kristen said...

Oh mama! Maybe those dreams are really a nano-second of deliciousness, our brain teasing us on the subconscious level from the first cry out of our babes mouth....hmmmn.

Christine said...

Oh man! It was just getting goo, too. . .

Hel said...

Think of it this way. If she did not wake you up you would have no memory to enjoy ;)

I'm am so inspired by you and Flutter that I have convinced my mother to help me lend more support to the ngo I have been involved with here in Joburg. The lady who runs it has been very ill and she has not been able to put as much energy as she use to into things. Your courage and commitment is inspiring me to find the time to do more.

And now is the best time for blankets. It is geting very cold.

metro mama said...

I want to hear the rest!

Deezee said...

ah, the little things in life affected by having a child...sigh. (totally cracked me up though. I can just imagine the waking look of disappointment on your face!)

and excellent with the $$.

Julie Pippert said...

LOL ha ha ha I have met that kind of man in my dreams too and had it all snatched away by a little voice, as well.

Great so far on the money raising!!!

KC said...

Can you have that guy drop on by my dream tonight? He doesn't have to shave.

NotSoSage said...

Dude.

I didn't want it to end.

flutter said...

*fans self*

whew! pardon me I think I need a moment alone......

Mad Hatter said...

Look on the bright side. At least you won't be knocked up in your next dream.

Yay! to everyone for making this fund drive happen.

crazymumma said...

I cannot believe my trainer cheated on me.

I'm taking you down Jen. Much as I love you. I'm taking you down.

A few extra minutes would have been good for me as well.

Heading over to Open Arms.

Aliki2006 said...

Hmmm...I'd like me some of THAT dream...

and hooray on the campaign!

Lawyer Mama said...

Aw, man! That sounded like a great dream.

Kyla said...

5 more minutes would have been good for all of us. Ha!

I am in...I'll be donating tomorrow.

Motherhood Uncensored said...

Even in our dreams we're relegated to quick mommy sex in order to get a climax.

ewe are here said...

Dreamus interruptus.

Ouch.

:-)

Hel said...

I had to come back one last time to say you rock!

I'm reading a book by a Kenian writer - a woman - who won the Nobel Peace Prize for her environmental work, helping to assist rural women by paying them to plant trees. She talks about how simple acts can lead to great change. How by planting trees she and her colleagues planted ideas and that like trees the ideas grew. I immediately thought of you. You are planting ideas and they are growing.

If you are interested have a look at her website - http://www.greenbeltmovement.org/

Her book unbowed is really, really wonderful.

See you soon,
In the other dream,
the one where we are drinking beer
and planting trees
together
on a hot summer afternoon
in South Africa.

urban-urchin said...

it's funny how kids can mess up even dream state sexy time. sigh.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Damn! I'm wishing your kid would have slept for another five minutes, too.

Beck said...

I'll be donating come Friday!
And that was some dream, interupted or not.

Jenn said...

That man is a player! He makes frequent stops at my house as well.

I'm OK with this though, I think there's enough of him to go around.

Kelly said...

Yeah to scratchy stubble, the kind that hurts so good and leaves the skin raw, evidence of tangled and messy love.

(Still got that Bub and Pie post in my head...)

QT said...

I need to get me some of that tonight!

Have been to Open Arms today, in fact. Glad to see you will meet your goal!

Binky said...

Sigh. If only I had that kind of dream action. The only thing worse than getting interrupted is not getting any to begin with!

Redneck Mommy said...

Dammit...seems my dream man was cheating on me with you!

Too bad about the loss of the five minutes. We all could have used it!

And good for you and Mad. You did your part so I made sure to do mine. Thanks for thinking of it.

Anonymous said...

I was with Christian Troy from Nip'Tuck last night and was also interrupted...just at the good part. wait, it was all good...all delicious...all hot and naughty...

Give me a couple of days to catch up with what's going over here and I'll comment when I can.

Bad, bad timing.

Bad.

Penny. said...

You know what is worse? lol! ..When you DO know the man and it's NOT a dream.
