I'm rubbing my shoes I'm rubbing my shoes I'm rubbing m shoes.......and the next thing I know I wake up in this like large grassy field where's there's hardly any trees anywhere.  I look up at the big beautiful blue sky where there are hardly any clouds and as I squint I SEE NOT ONE BUT 2 SUNS.  One sun is real close while another sun can be seen way out in the distant sky, which is extremely blue.  Even though there were 2 suns the weather was suprisingly cool and the air was so fresh and clean. 

I'm thinking I'M NOT ON EARTH ANYMORE AND I MUST ALSO  BE IN SOME  ALIEN  SOLAR SYSTEM NOT GOOD OLD SOL'S  BECAUSE OF THE TWO SUNS.   Another reason I knew I wasn't on Earth is because like I said before the sky was so darn blue, the air was so fresh, and I was in this huge open field where like I said before I didn't see any living things except a few trees for miles and miles.  NOW DEEP BLUE SKIES, CLEAN FRESH AIR, AND WIDE OPEN FIELDS ON EARTH?  GIVE ME A BREAK.  YOU CAN HARDLY FIND ANY WIDE OPEN FIELDS ANYMORE AND I'M USED TO SEEING BROWN SKIES, NOT BLUE SKIES, ESPECIALLY SINCE I LIVE IN LA. ON TOP OF THAT THERE ARE DAYS I FEEL LIKE I NEED AN OXYGEN MASK.

So I'm just walking around this field for a few minutes and then I start know a little lonely.  THERE'S NO DARN ANIMAL LIFE ON THIS PLANET?  NO PEOPLE?  NO CATS?  NO DOGS?   NO BIRDS?  NO BUGS?  MAYBE IT'S NOT THE GREATEST THING LIVING IN THIS PLACE.  I MEAN AT LEAST LIVING IN MY VAN NUYS APARTMENT I CAN COUNT ON SEEING TWO LIVING THINGS EVERY DAY.  ROACHES AND PEOPLE.  SO MAYBE THIS PLACE IS LIKE WHERE YOU KNOW SOME ADVANCED ALIEN CIVILIZATION SENDS PEOPLE WHO ARE LIKE BAD TO BE PUNISHED.   Anyways I'm actually thinking of waking up from dream and looking forward to waking up in my  hot stifling apartment and seeing my little roach friends running around the kitchen when in the far out distance I see three people on horseback and another horse with no rider riding towards me.

Soooooo a few minutes ago I thought I was the only living thing on this darn stinking planet with the two suns in the sky.  Now I see two kinds of animals, people and horses.  As the people come closer I squint my eyes a few seconds and immediately start to recognize them.  Alocki, Hellos, my two good friends from the planet Zatoris, and my boyfriend Biff.  Off course these people are in all my dreams.  Why shouldn't they be in this one?

"Fifi welcome to my planet," Alocki shouts with a big smile on her face as she gets closer.  A few minutes later  we're all hugging and shaking hands while the four horses are standing together relaxing and eating grass.  "Omigosh  Alocki so this is your planet Zatoris......." I say looking around.  "But I hardly see a tree anywhere.  And where are your oceans, people and other living things?  I mean I can hardly see any clouds in your sky."

Alocki laughed.  "In good time
