Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 192
…the human mind is a subconscious garbage can, which occasionally empties its contents in random order…
Fanny and Worth’s perplexity and confusion is shared by the other Libbyites, who as a group are subjected to similar horrible alternate worlds and nefarious nuisances as the other run-of-the-mill crusaders.
Other sample Libbyite dreams:
— Eddie D. finds himself surrounded by giant crustaceans, who are avenging their friends’ death by cocktail sauce.
— Ace gets no warning of landing gear failure upon landing The Blue Ridge Angel, crashing nose first into three houses on the east side of Central Ave.
— Constance watches in horror as Ace’s plane exceeds airport boundaries, bursting in flames, killing all aboard.
— Martin Kamen cannot find his way out of the escape tunnel beneath Argonne Lab, which has turned into a maze without an exit.
— Jennifer Goldwyn finds herself married to that Hollywood rapscallion Charlie Chaplain… who communicates with subtitles.
— Sister Mary Joseph is working as an exotic dancer at Atlantis Gentlemen’s Club, with dollar bills overflowing her bad “habit”.
— Edie D. sees her husband fall into a state of dementia, forgetting all those family stories about his multitudinous cousins. (She secretly hopes the dream does not end)
— Jesse James discovers that he was adopted by J. Edgar Hoover and that his real given name is Doogie Hoover.
Oh, the subtle cruelty of dreams in the human mind, likened to a subconscious garbage can, which has to empty its contents in random bizarre order. Good luck making much sense of it all.
