I’m throwing a dinner party for either a large amount of people or a small gathering; it keeps changing. I’m dead set on serving what I think is an AMAZING idea for dessert, no matter how emphatically my husband tells me that he does not agree. It’s an ice cream cake created in the likeness of Marilyn Monroe’s baby. And I don’t make this thing; it’s on the market. I know just where to buy it, and suddenly I’m there, in the basement of this vacant, subtly Asian emporium where a single chest freezer stands chock full of Marilyn Monroe Baby Cakes. The box has a window on top so you can gaze onto the cake, sort of like Snow White’s coffin. I wrinkle my nose at the details: angelic face, heart-shaped buttons on the onesie (it’s dressed), and here is where I reconsider. Is this cake strange? Will my guests think it’s avant garde or unappetizing? Not everyone shares my sense of style. No, nonsense. It’s a sure thing. Trust your gut. So I go for it. I buy every last cake.
Then it’s the night of the party. The guests are in the dining room, bellies full, laughing with each other. I’m in the kitchen taking the cakes out of the freezer and suddenly I’m not so sure. I say to my husband, “I get it. People don’t want to eat baby.”
“It’s Marilyn Monroe's baby,” he points out, only trying to help.
I’m half-heartedly surveying the contents of our freezer, but it’s too late. I take my knife out and start cutting the cakes, trying to decide who gets what. They’ll like them, won’t they? It’ll all work out fine. Right?
To dream that you are at a party suggests that you need to get out more and enjoy yourself. If the party is a bad one, then it indicates that you are unsure of your social skills. If you dream that you are at your own birthday party, then it represents appreciation for the life you have.�
To dream that you are planning a party implies that you are being too methodical and need to be more spontaneous. It is time to let loose. Alternatively, the dream may simply reflect your stress level about planning an actual party.
If you are a man and dream that there are only men at a party suggests that you are questioning your abilities. You fear that you are being overlooked or not measuring up to others. Or perhaps you are also expressing desires of blending in and not standing out.
