Amateur Theatricals

I dreamed we were improvising a play on the beach- right where the waves were breaking- and nobody much was watching which was just as well. It had to do with Roman emperors- and I was channelling John Hurt's performance as Caligula- the difference being that he could act and I can't. I spent some time getting into my toga and then went up to the person who was playing the reigning emperor- Tiberius, I suppose, kissed him and asked him if he'd had any thoughts about the succession. Even as I said the words I was thinking, "This is really lame."
