Pate of my Dreams Food for Thought: Pate of my Dreams

Speaking of Garde Mange reminds me of a dream I had a few years back.
I dreamt that I was in a grocery store in Ketchum, Idaho. Standing back by meat department was Jerry Van Dyke. He was food demonstrating pate. On either side of him were these two huge Sumo guys. As Jerry was talking to me and some old lady, the Sumo guys tore down and aisle, tasters in hand, shouting PATE! PATE! WE ALL LOVE PATE! Nobody seemed too bothered about the whole thing. What does it all mean?

When I used to wash dishes I used to have dreams about dump trucks backing up to my bed and dumping silverware on me.

When I moved to the kitchen I dreamt that while I was slicing meats on the slicer, the blade came loose and it lodged in my chest. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

I have an ongoing dream about an actual event.
I had a baker with one leg 12" shorter than the other and two large hearing aids. I arrived on property as Exec. Pastry Chef, he had been there for 11 yrs.
Bread service was always a scramble! last minute! oven to the table, which is alright if your planning that. This guy was the Godfather of the bread side, he had 6 spanish speaking helpers who followed his every whim.
He was totally insubordinate, we went round and round every day, usually ending with him turning his hearing aids off and ignoring me.
First big party, 900 people 5 course plated. I arrive 10 AM only to find that he had not even started bread for this function. We had it out!!
Now it's 4 pm and one of his helpers comes to me and tells me Jose can't find one of his hearing aids, the dough has been rounded and he thinks it might have fallen into the dough!!!
I walk into my office, sit, and stare into space for 5 minutes thinking what to do. I call the F&B, my 3rd time talking with him, explain my situation and recomend that we try to buy 3000 roll from outside asap.
He tells me not to worry! Jose has done this with other new chefs! it's just his way of telling me not to F--- with him!
I dream this all the time.
PS took me 10 weeks to get rid of him.
