Last week I had a horrible nightmare about a baby pig being pushed down a garbage disposal by a serial killer. I woke from that dream utterly disturbed and unrested. I couldn't shake the dream.
Offhandedly, I mentioned it to my dry cleaner.
“Oh, was there a lot of blood?” He asked. “Where I come from, I think that’s considered good luck! You should buy a lottery ticket or something.”
I thought about doing it, but went straight home instead. The next day, I googled “meaning of pig dreams in Korea” and sure enough! That’s a sign of a big windfall. So I bought two lottery tickets and a some scratch offs. None of them were winners.
The moral of the story is that when your Korean dry cleaner tells you to do something you should probably do it immediately because he knows what he’s talking about. Also, eat less pork and don’t tempt serial killers with baby pigs.
You know, as a general rule.
