I'm sleeping with the aircon on at night. It's just too hot. Mine is on a thermostat so that it turns off at my preset temp and then regulates the room in the night - turning on and cutting out as necessarily. And I'm assuming that whirring is invading my sleep.
Because the other night I had a pretty darn gruesome dream. It felt like a sequel dream, where the murder of some person was familiar and this was the continuation of that. I was peering into a room and two women shook their heads at me and closed a curtain. I was not to know what was going on in there. Except ... I could hear it. I welcomed into the room I was in, people I knew ... they'd come for a minyan (Jewish Prayer gathering for the days following the burial of a loved one). As we gathered and prayed, in the background I could hear the constant whirring of a mincer or a food processor. And at some point in the middle, one of them came out to get a tablecloth and she made me give her a kiss on the cheek and all I could see was the blood smatterings on her upper arm and summer suit jacket. And when it was finished, my mother and I went into the kitchen and draining on the dish drainer are all the parts of a food processor. And my Mum kept trying to gather them up and I kept shaking my head and saying nevermind, I would buy her a new one.
And my mother, in response to this dream told me yesterday ... that's all about your relationship breakdown.
