Stolen cushions, health care buses and a national anthem

In terms of rambling dreams, this was one of the strangest I’ve had in a while. It started as I walked past the window of the house of an elderly lady in my neighbourhood. She was staring out the window, looking quite fearful of the world. I stopped to check on her and asked her what was wrong.

“Look!” she shouted while pointing at her lounge, “They stole a cushion” she continued before sobbing. I looked, and a cushion was indeed missing, so I vowed to track down the culprit.

Just then, a group of three young men arrived claiming to have information about the cushion theft. I joined them as we set off and caught a bus.

Once on the bus, which had windows which could not be seen through, with the exception of the front and rear windscreens, I walked over to the health care desk which occupied a space about half way down the bus on the left hand side, and told the lady at the counter that I wanted to pay my monthly fee. She informed me that I had not paid for the last twelve months, but I would be able to pay the normal monthly fee and be covered for this month, which I promptly did. The young men that I was with objected to this, stating that it was not fair that I could avoid paying my dues for a whole year and still expect to be covered. I agreed, and said that if I was in charge, I would have myself pay the outstanding fees or go through a full physical examination if I only wanted to pay for the current month.

After this we got off the bus and entered a football stadium where we ended up on a stage and the music for the national anthem started. I started singing the national anthem in my falsetto opera, reaching notes that I have not reached since primary school. After the anthem, there was an applause and the dream ended.

I had the radio on while I was sleeping and a few ANZAC Day services were on the radio while I was asleep, so it’s possible that this is what caused the national anthem to be a part of it, but the rest of it…I have no idea.

In honour of those who have served and defended this country, and our allies, against our enemies and those who wish to do us harm.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

Lest we forget.
