Last night I had a dream about David.
So, I dream that I’m meeting up with David one evening. When he greets me at a street corner, he immediately grabs my hand as we proceed towards a church where he’s participating in a concert. I’m quite thrilled as we’re walking in the streets, hand in hand, as if we’re a couple!
Inside, he sits me in a certain pew close to the front as he then goes backstage to get ready for his performance. It’s not a solo performance though, as he’s part of a choral group. But I’m thrilled, either way, that he has given me special seating to check him out in this concert.
When he comes out on stage with the rest of the choir and prepares to sing, a noisy argument breaks out in the audience. I see that it involves two rival characters from a soap that I occasionally watch. They’re so disruptive that I try to go over and break it up (seeing as I know these two and how they operate, I thought I could try and “reason” with them to behave themselves at a church concert). But they ignore me and continue with their commotion. I look back toward the stage, and David gestures for me to come to the stage and join him, so I did.
I’m not a performer, but it doesn’t seem to matter as I sit next to him in the chorale section. The choir isn’t performing at the moment since a preacher comes out on stage and proceeds to call the audience to attention (which eventually stops the commotion). While he preaches a sermon, David pulls me in close to him, his arm around my chair. I look up at him, and next thing I know, he’s moving in to kiss me! We’re on stage! And in church! During a “sermon”! I pull my face away in embarrassment, so he instead plants the kiss on my cheek! I’m still embarrassed. I tell him that I’m going back to the seat he picked out for me in the audience so I try to furtively move off stage as I hear him chuckling behind me.
After the church service (I don’t remember the choir singing at all!) David comes and gets me, and once again, we’re outside in the streets at night, walking hand in hand. At some point, David pauses from our walk to pull me in closer, and as he embraces me, he whispers in my ear: “Your place or mine?”
Who is this highly confident, swagger-walking, eager-to-display-public-affection guy, and what’s he doing with me? And is this really the David Archuleta I know?!
I look into his sparkling eyes and smiling face, and my heart immediately starts fluttering, that kind of flutter you get when the guy you’re dating makes every indication that he’s ready to take the relationship to the next level while you’re still hesitant about going in the same direction.
Except … why would I be hesitant with David Archuleta?
As I mull over his “invitation” … that’s when I woke up!
Can you believe it, dear readers? Thirty-seven David Dreams, and still he and I have yet to consummate our relationship.
What is my subconscious waiting for?
