I had something like that happen to me. I told my housemate "I had a dream that the entire yard was covered with trees like a miniature forest." She thought I meant it in the sense of Martin Luther King saying "I have a dream" and promptly started figuring out how we could accomplish such a thing.

@Mike: Yes. But leave it to Rick to zero in on that aspect.

Well, to be fair, there was a submarine involved too. That's a pretty big stereotype plus a massive phallic symbol staring him right in the face, as it were...

"You have dreams about watching TV?"

I knew it Scott. Rick's got you pegged. Does your wife know? You can come out of the closet now. Or maybe you just watch way too much TV every night. Find a new hobby, perhaps sewing or knitting?

I have the exact same sort of dreams, except there's nothing else going on to distinguish them as dreams, which makes me sound like the crazy guy at the watercooler. Then again, Giada Di Laurentis is always naked when I watch, so who's crazy now?

Worse, though, are the dreams that just involve having random conversations with friends, who then don't have the courtesy to remember the plans we made after I get back to real life, leaving me hanging around the bowling alley in a tuxedo wondering where everybody is.

I woke up last night about 45 minutes after i went to sleep. I though for sure there was a big black spider hanging from the ceiling. I saw it! I got out of bed and turned on the light. The exact point where i woke up is still unclear; somewhere between the bed and the light switch. No spider was ever found. It must have been my imagination. Stupid subconscious...

I have dreams of being unable to relate my dreams to anyone within spitting distance - wait, wait, that's my waking life.

I love that you can use homosexuality in a comic without actually insulting homosexuals. Not many people can do that.

I always tell people their dreams mean their gay, that way they stop telling me about their dreams.

*in Fred Fredburger-type tone* I had a dream . . . I was an alien and my enemies' heads were on pikes in my front yard . . . what do you think that means?

(p.s. - if you don't know who fed fredburger is, then go onto youtube and look it up)

i don't want to dream currently so i drink at night. ah, the wonders that works in my life...

Ok, "Me" beat "me" to it. :P

But, to reiterate, I was very impressed that you could so deftly juggle stereotypes, playful teasing between friends ABOUT being gay, and so expertly never cross over into offensive. I literally can't think of anyone else whose writing could seemingly never pull punches with his humor, never seem "politicially correct", but in every strip have them come off as a l'ikeable guy' (you the writer), using their characters as clearly insulated receptacles for any human failings. I really HOPE this must take you hours or more to write each strip. Otherwise, there is such a thing as being TOO good. :P

wow...all those wordy comments, and not a single one makes a 'make it work' reference. what a shame.

I, for one, love Rick! :)

All I can think of now is a greasy Scott, being lectured by Tim Gunn surrounded by Seaman.
