just had a dream about the party from hell...
I'm at a house party thrown by a friend from my waking life, but the host isn't there cuz they had a family emergency but they insisted everyone to stay at the party and have a good time. Try as i may, i am not having a good time. In addition to beer, all the guests are served a can of pork and beans, but it seems that i am the only one who, out of politeness, tries to eat the beans and it appears that everyone else notices this. The beans don't actually have the flatulent effect on me that everyone else is worried about, but everyone assumes the worst of me cuz the apartment already smelled wicked before i got there.
To make things more embarrassing for me, the party is almost entirely populated by cute girls that i have been acquainted with (rather than friends with) in my waking life (from high school mostly) but I had been too shy or out of league back then to ever attempt to become friends with them. To compensate for my prior shyness, I make an effort to talk to every girl at the party. I say "hi", shake their hand (apologizing each time that my hand is cold and wet from holding a beer) and ask them how they've been since the last time I'd seen them (usually 5 or 6 years or more). Each time, however, the girl is a bit shocked that I know who they are because they can't remember me at all.
Sometimes the girl will be blunt about it: "Who the hell are you?!" And sometimes she'll be polite and feign to remember me: "Oh ya, Josh Morgan... right, right." Depending on their reaction, I either ask them about "good ol' times", or I ask them about who they know that they'd end up at this wacky party, or if it's clear that she's totally freaked out by me, I hightail it to another girl I know who will inevitably not remember me.
Regardless of how it started, eventually, one of us will walk away from the conversation when the embarrassment for me is too much for either of us to bear, so I move on to the next embarrassing chat. This cycle of awkwardness continues until I woke up.
