Larry David Loves This Idea ... In My Dreams

I happen to think Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld and creator and star of Curb Your Enthusiasm, is the funniest person alive so maybe it’s not all that odd that the comedian recently made a guest appearance in one of my dreams.

Dream Larry lived next door to me. We visited each other regularly. I talked with Dream Larry in great depth about his career and his creative process. He was perfectly accommodating and lovely. In other words, he was nothing like Real-Life Larry.

On one visit, Dream Larry and I could barely hear each other because of the abrasive licks of a heavy metal band practicing outside the widow.  We agreed it was repulsive and a blight on the entire neighborhood. The next time I saw Dream Larry I asked him if he had done anything to address the repulsive metal band problem. He said yes. He had signed them to a recording contract. We both laughed uproariously. I told him this would make a great plot for a future Curb episode. Dream Larry agreed.

So Real-Life Larry, if you’re out there, feel free to borrow that hilarious anecdote for a future episode. I’m not holding my breath though. Unfortunately, Dream Larry also told me he wouldn’t be doing any more episodes of Curb.
