Plink Cereal Dream, ink & gouache, in Moleskine 5x7"

Plink Cereal Dream, ink & gouache, in Moleskine 5x7"

I had a dream last night about a new cereal called “PLINK” that was designed to be eaten at your desk. I think the name of the cereal comes from the sound the computer makes when a new email message arrives.

This morning  when I prepared to do the dishes waiting for me in the sink (OK, not just my breakfast dishes but about three days worth) I discovered it was completely clogged and wouldn’t drain. I poured a teakettle full of boiling water down the drain, thinking that might help, but all it did was fill the sink even more. I left the dishes piled in the mucky water and went to work.

When I came home I asked my neighbor who knows everything about working on houses, what I should do. He came over with a plunger and spent 15 minutes trying that approach. But instead of emptying the sink, the plunger added what looked and smelled like rusty mud to the water. In a way it was an improvement over the left-over cauliflower scent from last night’s dinner.

After spattering muddy water everywhere he gave up and promised to bring over a drain snake tomorrow night. I tried to look on the bright side: since I couldn’t wash dishes or vegetables, I had a perfect excuse to neither cook nor do dishes.

I had a bowl of cereal for dinner. Not PLINK though,  just Cheerios.

  1. OMG – thanks for this post! I was just reading it having cleared a sink myself this morning and I was going to ask if you had tried a drain clearing solution when I realised (after hubby said don’t leave it for longer than 10 minutes) that I hadn’t rinsed it and that was 3 hours ago! (And it still isn’t clear!) I think I’ll try a wire coat hanger!

    I’m glad to see you writing and drawing about your dreams again, they are fun and so interesting!

  2. Sometimes it’s nice to be awake for the happy dream and asleep for the yucky nightmare.
