Had a dream that I was covering a job where it was a simple interview but there were more people there than usual. I had my laptop on the table already but then they wanted to switch to another bigger table, and one of the people there actually was using my laptop. I had my steno machine with me at the head of the table but I needed my laptop too to watch my screen as well as record and stuff. I didn’t have my Marantz on the table as usual either.
We were doing this job at home and Ken my husband was running around bringing in things for me. It was so sweet.
When we started, I didn’t get all of the names of the people at the table yet. There were at least five or so people sitting at the long table. I asked them to spell out their names but the girl was so fast that I had trouble jotting down what she was saying. I had her repeat herself multiple times. Lydia was there too and she was helping me. It was such a rush that I didn’t even make the speaker designations either.
The job was scheduled for 3 hours, and as these interviews are usually short, it ended under the one hour mark. When I left, there was another recorder behind me that was a big flat one that looked like a scale. It belonged to Lydia and so because she had left already, I called her to see if she was still around so that I could return it back to her, especially if she had a job the next day, she would need it.
What a dream! (nightmare?)
I began reporting pre-CAT and once dreamed I was reporting Ronald Reagan in a deposition. Everything was going well and I was so focused on the speakers that I didn’t even look down at my notes until about a half hour in. That was when I discovered there was no paper in my machine! Steno dreams can be so real and so strange…
Haha, I know eh… It’s quite interesting and half of the dream is so real too.
Your dream would induce a heart attack in real life! XD
