Analyze My Dream

I had a weird dream the other night. Alex Bogusky–a man I have never met–came to my current workplace. He went through my book with the entire creative team looking on, then offered me a job at CP+B’s Paris office. My cube was kind of small over there.

    Had it been David Ogilvy coming to your workplace and offering you a job, the interpretation would be easy. As it stands, I can only surmise that you either want out of your current job or that you have a mancrush on Mr. Bogusky. I’m trusting it’s the former.

    I dreamt that Dan Wieden showed up and offered me a job if I pay $12,000 a year and listen to1800 consective Postal Service B-sides while sorting WK’s recycling.
    Meanwhile Jelly Helm was making guacamole and said it would was the best ad he’d ever made.

    You’re beginning to doubt whether staying in the ad business is worth it. You’re thinking, “Even working for an award-winning creative powerhouse, and in an exciting new city, I would still feel creatively cramped.”
    Then again, that pretty much describes most of the creatives I know. Myself included. ;)

    That’s the answer I was looking for, DaveedNYC. You rock.

  • daveednyc

    I’m definitely in the wrong field, then. LOL

    Either Daveednyc is correct or you recently started taking Chantix and Pfizer is doing a little F’ing with your dreams:

    Silly, David. Your dream’s not possible.
    If you were at CP+B, you wouldn’t be sleeping.
    Have a good one.
