Ask Not at Whom the Chimp Smirks -- He Smirks at You

I had a strange dream last night. A chimp jumped onto my bed and proceeded to strike blue-tip matches against my knees. All the matches lit up beautifully in the dark of the bedroom.

What does this dream freaking mean?

No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

[Sorry . . . hope I'm not the only one who thought of the children's song . . .]

I have no idea, but I'm glad it was a chimp and not, like, George Bush or something. :)

It means you need more sex.

I think your dream involves a pun on chango and Shangó

chango is the monkey in your dream, but he's also Shangó the orisha power of Thunder and Lightning. So in one sense, Shango came to you in your dream and enflamed you, inspired you.

In another sense, Shangó rode you
