Watching My Pet Cow

Post by TheWhiteShadow on Mon Jan 28, 2013 7:59 am

No, I don't have a pet cow in real life. :)

In this dream, I was at a local retailer that I worked at when I was young. I think that I worked there in the dream. At that moment, I was there for a meeting. I had a full-grown cow with me, with a leash or strap to lead it with. I felt like this cow was important to me, somewhat. Like a pet or something. I had to go upstairs to this meeting, so I led the cow onto the elevator with me. It was a bit awkward to get her on it, but it really wasn't a problem or anything. Next, we made it to the 2nd floor, and I led her out of the elevator and into the breakroom. I couldn't bring this cow in with me to my meeting. However, there was a young man in the breakroom that I work with at my current job, and I asked him to watch this cow for me. In real life, this guy is a great employee - he's new, but he does whatever I ask without question. I knew that he'd watch this cow for me if I asked him. Sure enough, he did.

Next thing I know, my meeting is over. It must not be important to this dream, because I don't remember even having it. I'm heading back to the breakroom to get the cow back, and I found that this guy is playing a video game while he was waiting for me. He was at the end of this game, and he had some questions for me about what was going on. This game looked similar to one that I played when I was really young, and it was sort of the catalyst to getting me interested in learning about a certain period in Chinese history. I knew exactly what was going on in his game, but I didn't get into all the details as that would be too much for him - I just gave him general knowledge so he would understand what was happening a little better.

Is there something that you have been carrying around, holding onto, or safeguarding since childhood?

Ah, I didn't get the chance to come back to this dream after the day was done, yesterday. I realized last night what the dream is about:

This is a work-related dream. The guy in the dream is literal for a coworker who needs some ongoing training opportunities. Specifically, he needs training in an area that I typically handle, myself.

Asking him to watch the cow for me is direction for me, since when I returned I found that the cow was perfectly fine. I typically have a tough time sharing my work responsibilities with others because I'm so picky about how they're handled. I can see that it'll be ok if I leave him to practice his skills with my interference. However, I can check up on him and answer his questions as need be - shown by the video game portion.

This guy had a brief opportunity to work on a single task last night, which went just fine. Tonight is his turn for a larger amount of responsibility - and I'm going to try to leave him to handle it himself.

I had a quirky professor in college who got onto the subject of Wisconsin once in one of my political science classes years ago. I can't remember much of what he said, but I do remember he ended his Wisconsin political discussion with "...and the cows are happier in Wisconsin. If a person drives through Minnesota and then crosses the border into Wisconsin, a person will notice the cows are happier." (No, I don't think he was on drugs. Actually I loved this man and he was a father figure for me at the time.)

About 20 years later, I was crossing into Wisconsin in a car with a couple of my friends. I told them what my professor said. We drove past a pasture of some Holsteins and guess what? They were smiling!! I could not believe it. So maybe it's because they get to ride in elevators and get babysitters (just kidding:)

Lol:) but when I was growing up on a ranch in North Dakota my dad would save baby calves from hypothermia by putting them in warm water in our bathtub. Does that count?

That....is awesome.

Did the spa treatment include a shampooing and maybe a pedicure? :D
