I was dreaming that I was going on a road trip with a friend, who was at the wheel and he typically has a knack for getting us lost. We had no worries this time, as we got off the freeway, assuming we'd get to our destination (somewhere I guess in a foothill city that has its share of canyons). The first light from the offramp, he admits he's lost. I said to go to the nearest gas station and get some directions. Being his stubborn self, he drove on. We quickly rounded a curve with commercial buildings and on the horizon, was this massive mountain that had a 4-lane street on each side (not the first time I recall having a dream like this). I'm telling him, "WTF, we can't scale that mountain". He doesn't care, he drives on, and somehow he's flooring it, only getting 40mph, and we're still getting up the mountain. Halfway up, there was a ramp that curves down the shoulder of the mountain and onto a properly built road, safer to cross. He finally heeds my advice and takes it. However, halfway through the curve, the road became narrower, less asphalt, more dirt and gravel. My friend decides to off-road our van off the track, takes a left turn, and drives us through some sandy crevasses in the mountain, trying to get back on the main road.
Somehow, we land in civilization again, in Downtown, I presume. We walk across a plaza and there are these kids falling down concrete steps, as if they've been exposed to nerve gas. Finally, we wound up in a store under construction which was supposed to be a Subside Sports (they're only an online retailer). The staff had some kind of contest to win a Romario Barcelona jersey. I'm thinking, sweet. All I had to do was getting a few questions right. The questions where, what was the score of last year's Arsenal/AC Milan Champions League match at the San Siro and who scored. I was convinced that it was 2-1 to Arsenal, with Fabregas and Adebayor scoring for Arsenal and Flamini with an own-goal to Milan. The guy just smiled, agreed, and lauded my great memory. Then, the moment I walk out of there, I just realized Arsenal won 2-0, with goals from Fabregas and Adebayor within the final 10 minutes and got it wrong. I was incensed, but more so at the store for giving away a Barcelona prize, where the question had nothing to do with the team. Bah.
