Ok look - I never do this. But this happened more than a week ago and it still bothers me:
I dreamed I was in the back of a church1 on Christmas Eve and I was was doing work on my laptop. The only other person in the pews was a childhood friend2. There was no mass or other service going on, but the CEO of the company I work for was standing on the altar3.
As he walked down the aisle4, I hunkered close to the laptop to keep on working without being too obvious about it but I knew I shouldn't be working in church on Christmas Eve. It seemed to me like he would frown upon it but ultimately he would understand.
He passed me by without comment5.
1. Not any real church. Ornate, yet tasteful.
2. This particular person had a father that knew my father since they were in kindergarten together and a mother who was friends with my mother since they both were 20 year old brides.)
3. In a polo shirt and khakis.
5. Short-lived relief. Heavy overlay of guilt.
