Dreaming about a wine-free Yom Tov

Last shabbos I dreamt that it was Rosh Hashanah and I had invited a former rabbi of mine* to lunch.  When I got home, I noticed plenty of canned mackerel (one of my daily staples) but no meat** or wine (which I would normally have on a Yom Tov).  So I was freaking out.  Then the apartment turned into a crowded bar, at which point it became hard to host lunch even leaving aside the absence of provisions.  Before I completely lost my marbles, I woke up and the dream ended.

 

*I realize he’s still a rabbi, but he was fired from my congregation, so he is no longer a congregational rabbi.

**I don’t always eat meat on shabbos/yom tov but yeshivish people like this rabbi do. At any rate I always have wine.
