oh what in the hell

Even in my dream I was hungry.

I drove around from supermarket to supermarket, but it was a holiday -- and it was raining -- and so they all were closed. Finally I found a CVS in a shopping center next door to a closed supermarket. When I went in I noticed that everybody else was there too shopping for food, as none of us had apparently heard it was a holiday. Then someone made an announcement that "there was also food available for sale in our upstairs department" and a few of us took to the upstairs department like a shot.

The upstairs department turned out to be a few offices in an L-shaped hallway. One of them had a lady in it who had a bunch of canned food and a six-sided die. I apparently got to roll the die twice and each time receive food based on the roll I made. A 6 meant I got as much as I wanted and a 2 meant I got one can. If I rolled a 1, however, (signified by a big red dot on the die) that corresponded to "Pinch Me" and the lady would be able to give me a pinch on the arm and I wouldn't get any food for that. The rules, handwritten on a sheet of paper in front of us, also mentioned a variant of the game that involved two dice and more food options, but I played the single die version. I rolled a 3 and a 4.

The cans of food were mostly unlabeled and the lady warned me "I know we have some cat food in the pile here too." Luckily I saw the cat food labels and were able to avoid them. That must've been fortunate. So I loaded myself up with canned food and presumably went home to eat, but that's when I woke up and realized I'd been out for almost 12 hours, when I'd only really wanted to sleep for four or five.

Damn.

And I'm still hungry.
