In my dream, I was still with Al. We were at his dad and step-mom's log cabin (which they don't own in the waking world). Al's dad told us to spend five minutes together in his cabin each morning, in silence, in each other's company, and then share about the experience with each other in the evening. As simple as that sounded, I thought it was a great idea. As Al's dad was saying this, the television set was being turned off, and there were ghost images that took a moment to fade. The last light I saw was in the upper-right quadrant and it was a circular fading pink and white "ghosting" of the final images. Al said that was impossible, because we both do our own separate things anyway. I was angry and hurt with what Al said. While it was true I spent my time cleaning up, he was watching television. I walked up to Al, who was sitting down, and knelt beside him, telling him I'm sorry for the miscommunications. Then I proceeded to explain that it hurts me very much that he watches tv all the time, and I would like nothing more than to spend some time with him. I think I got through to him, because the television was off and I had his undivided attention. At the same time, Al's dad also advised we wet a shower curtain while this is happening. I asked him what do we do with the shower curtain once we are done wetting it. He showed me — to hang it up behind the existing shower curtain already in the bathroom. So together, Al's dad and I hung up the wet one behind the dry one. I asked what was the point of that? He looked at me and said he didn't know, then told me never mind. In the meantime, I have this wet shower curtain I have to deal with. There were walnuts on the kitchen table, but now I'm not recalling how they came into play in my dream. Scene changed and I was trying to heat up some beef for me to consume right away. I was hungry and a little impatient that the meat wasn't cooked yet. I had the uncooked beef in front of me as well as the cooked chicken that came out of the refrigerator. I was trying to prepare both at the same time, but couldn't accomplish either task. I just took small bites from the cold chicken and some remaining veggies while I had the idea to just cut the beef up into small pieces and cook the small pieces so it would cook faster. Dream ends.
