Dinner with a Loon

This morning’s Dream Guy commentary on society comes from the 1938 Screwball Comedy, “Bringing Up Baby.” For context, in the film, there really are leopards in Connecticut:

“Dinner with a Loon”

For some reason, I dreamed the dinner scene from “Bringing Up Baby.” Not sure why. Comedy, but it’s also about gaslighting, lies and multiple people trying to get others to believe something other than the truth.

END of dream journal.

This is the scene:

From my dream journal commentary:

There are multiple situations of extreme gaslighting happening right now, so the dinner conversation could have been triggered by any of those. … [I]t could be ANY narrative being foisted on people, and the scene is masterful in that there are so many different levels of awareness and confusion. That’s quite similar to society right now.

Just in case you’re feeling crazy! Keep in mind that the “experts” saying, “It’s a loon” might have no idea what’s happening. And the other people telling you, “No, there are NO leopards in Connecticut” might be trying to fool you. Some people know they’re clueless. Others accidentally let the truth slip out, then retract it and run away.

Maintaining or cultivating a sense of humor helps. Things will continue to get crazier, but this, too, shall pass. 🙂

    One of my favorite old movies when I was a kid, along with Wizard. Wonderful to see this bit. Gosh, Katharine Hepburn was such a stunner. Cary, too. As for the cryptic clues, I’ve been on my road trip all week paying absolutely no attention to current events other than staying in my lane and trucks, trucks, trucks. Hence I have little to no idea to what your dream guys are alluding here, but perhaps it will come to me. Xx

    • Your road trip seems so symbolic: “staying in your lane and trucks, trucks, trucks.” This is definitely a time to pay attention to one’s own journey and stay in one’s own lane! Lots of potential distractions and mishaps. 🙂

    LOVE this explanation and the clip, which IS exactly like we’re living now. Or as my late husband George used to say, quoting Richard Pryor, “who are you gonna believe? Me or your lying eyes?”
