This is my dream about Michael J Fox, Tom Hanks, and a reunion photo op.
Michael J Fox was undergoing some new experimental treatment for Parkinson’s. He gets this treatment, then has to lie flat in bed for several hours. The treatment does have an awful side effect as it turns out. His face and lips swelled up like a balloon, and his skin was bright red. Someone brought one of his kids into the room, and had to be thoroughly convinced this was daddy. The swelling was treated with ice packs, and he was then able to take a shower.
Cut to Tom Hanks…Tom is on a train (or bus possibly) on his way to an awards show. Tom Bergeron from Dancing With The Stars is preparing a surprise by interviewing Tom’s wife and they teenage daughter (Does Tom Hanks even have a teenage daughter?). At one point, Tom Bergeron asks the girl how her life is going. “Well, right now it sucks” she responded. And when Tom Bergeron asks why, the girl responds “Because you are sitting here asking me stupid questions when I could be having fun with my friends.” Well, nobody is quite sure how to handle that scenario….so they say to me “Hey, you went to school with Tom, right? Ask him what do we do?” So, I am going to meet him at the train or bus station and on my way, everything changes and I am at this big hall where there is some sort of fundraiser going on.
My kids and I are working it, and it’s been going on all day. I find out from someone that they are thinking of doing a reunion photo for an old neighborhood of ours. So, as I am out scouting locations for this photo, I come across a few hundred people already having a picture taken. (After I literally walked for blocks.) Heck….we hadn’t even set it up yet, and there they were already…I have camera in hand, so I try to jump in with the crowd, and they are already done.
I then walk back to the hall, and round up everybody to go home…..I tell them all I am extremely tired from visiting Michael J Fox and Tom Hanks all day.
