Analyze this

We're playing Settlers on the lawn in front of the hostel, right where the big tree used to be before the storm. A, C, TPB, and I. Suddenly, A says he saw a snake slithering through the grass right by where his foot had been. We jump up and start running. A and TPB and I run directly towards the edge of the lawn, but C goes in the other direction, along the long corridor and then round via the narrow concrete path. She rejoins us. We look back towards where we'd been playing. Tikaram has appeared from nowhere, and he's got these two big cows, ribs sticking out, and an enormous pig with him. All the animals appear to be covered or coated with newspaper. We carefully cross the lawn to go pick up our game, watching the grass closely. As we look up, we see he is feeding the pieces to the animals! I yell at him and hit one of the cows on the ribs, ineffectually. It pays me no heed. We ask him what right he has to feed our game to his animals, and how does he suppose we can retrieve it now. He says maybe some pieces are still okay, and then reaches inside the pig's cavernous mouth and draws out a slightly dented, wet, sloppy piece of the board. He shakes the goo off and offers it to me. I look inside the pigs mouth. A big dark tongue lashes from side to side. The pig bellows. I withdraw.

Subah ka sapna sach aata hai.

I don't believe that line anymore. Doesn't work.

LOL! Careful with that acid, Eugene.

The Pig is a symbol of Man's Desires and Greed. The dream also represents your Id and Ego battling it out inside the hog's intestines.

Tell me, did you overeat last night? :D
