I had another disturbing dream about Tropico this afternoon while I slept. (I work night shift, so sleep in the day)
I was on an island as just a regular guy. Not a dictator, rebel, peasant, Spice Girl, etc. Just some guy. A ship came in with food from another country and the ship was unloaded. I was at the market waiting to buy the food, but then I realized I had no money.
I watched as the people bought the food eagerly and took it home with happy looks on their faces. I could do nothing but stand there looking hopeless and lost because I had foolishly forgotten my money. Eventually the last of the food was purchased and the marketplace was deserted. I stood there and looked around as even the janitors left after doing their job.
Eventually, as the moon rose higher in the sky I sighed heavily and went back to my cheap apartment. I sat down and looked forlornly at my dinner plate. It was empty. I then awoke from the nightmare.
Upon waking, I realized immediately what the dream was telling me. I frantically turned my computer on, got online, and checked at amazon.com for my pre-order (made in December).
Hmm, interesting. The order says it is pre-ordered and that it will be delivered this month. But I still had a twinge of doubt, so I actually investigated the particulars of the order. I looked at the credit card number and realized something horrible. Something awful. There was a hook on the car door!!!
No wait, that's a campfire ghost story. I meant to say:
If I hadn't have looked, the purchase would have been declined and I would have had to wait even longer for the game!
I can only feel that the dream was a gift from the heavens.
