dream date unprepared for a long walk
i woke up a few minutes ago from a rather vivid dream. i was walking around at night with a small sexy young american hispanic woman. in the parking lot of a diner, a man in a very little, bright sports car passed us, and he was driving aggressively. there were a lot of people around. a while later the same man came round the corner, stopped, backed up into a spot where i'd been just about to step with this young woman. and he shouts out for some other woman that it's time to go. he was angry and threatening, but his voice was nebbishy. anyway the woman i was with called out to the other young woman that she could get a ride with us instead, and she was trying to protect her by pretending she was with us. i said "but i don't have a car!" and suddenly i realized i was on a date with this hispanic girl. she was surprised. she said what if we can get a car here? pointing around the parking lot. i didn't wanna get mixed up in the aggression. we left the parking lot and started walking uphill on route 133. (not sure why 133, or what part, but in the dream it was 133.) i quickly realized the girl i was with was not cut out for a long walk to the gloucester train station. she was wearing tall pointy heels. so i said let's stop here and call a cab, i know there's at least one taxi company in this town. so we went inside a roadside pizza shop. there was one customer inside, but whoever was minding the store was somewhere else, maybe outside. i wanted to borrow the yellow pages to find the number of the taxi company. i spotted a yellow pages lying on a shelf just as the owner came in, and i asked if i could use it to look up a number. just at that moment i noticed that my "date" was checking out a big round old pickup truck that was just pulling up. so i went outside again to see if she was gonna take a ride with that guy. but the driver was a woman. and my date made a deal with her: if we bought her a pizza, she would give us a ride home. my date thought that was a good deal, she was proud of herself. in the end i was feeling like i was unable to provide for her -- not fast enough, not tough enough, not car-owning enough. but she didn't hold it against me. she was still smiling at me as i woke up.
other things happened in the same dream, there was a lot of dialogue and some other characters. but that's the part i remember.
