The Dream Advisor


It was Tuesday. After dinner, I went to the bedroom and was thinking about possible story on the topic Advice.

After some time I and my wife was having a discussion.

Wife;               You should use your long professional experience and the full day of the spare time in the retired life.

Me;                  How can I use that?

Wife;               You should become an advisor and open an office. You have experience in many areas.

As per advice of my wife, I opened an office and became an advisor.

My first customer

I welcomed the customer and offered a seat.

Customer;      I want an advice from you.

Me;                  Sure, that is what for, I am sitting here.

Customer;      Please advise me a topic to write a story. I am confused on the topic of the story.

Me:                   Sure, Todays hot topic is Advice. Many are writing on this topic.

Customer:       Agreed with a little modification. I will be happy to write about the life of a great advisor. Do you know anybody?

Me;                     One advisor is sitting in front of you, itself.

Customer;       Oh, now I have decided to write about you, with your help and blessing. I want to know more about your life. Can you please allow me along with my wife to pass full day with you in your house this Sunday?

Now, I had little option and so, agreed unwillingly.

My second customer

Customer;      I want advice from you

Me;                  Sure, on which subject you want advice.

Customer;      That also to be advised by you. Just give me advice on anything of your choice.

Me;                  (I thought, what a stranger) Oh sure, but you have to pay my fees as per chart shown on that wall.

Customer;      I am ready to pay.

Then for some time I gave him advice on some thing, totally unwillingly.

My 3rd customer

Customer;      Please advise me a solution

Me;                   (I was waiting for this kind of customer only). Sure please sit down and tell me your problem.

Customer;      I want to write a story, but not able to decide topic. Please suggest a topic.

What happen after that is not worth mentioning. I closed my office for a day and left for home.

I asked my wife to suggest a method to avoid unwanted visitor ( my 1st customer) on coming Sunday. She promptly suggested a holiday out. I agreed immediately. Next Sunday morning, both of us were going to a remote place in a taxi.

Suddenly my wife started laughing. She was just going on laughing. After some time…

Me;      Why are you laughing?

Wife;   For long time I have not gone on the holiday. I planned a trap for you to force you to go on the holiday. Suggesting you to become an advisor, opening an office, and all the 3 visitors were beautifully planned to trap you. And, the trap is successful.

Me;      But why you planned such an unusual way.

Wife;   I am bored with the normal method of asking and wanted something unusual and tricky method. You are always writing unusual and tricky things. So I also selected interesting, unusual and tricky method. It was really enjoyable to play the trick with the you.

Me:      But who advised you this trap?

Wife;   This was advised by an advisor having office in the back lane. But, Implementation is done by me.

Suddenly I got up due to loud sound of the doorbell. It was morning of the Wednesday. My wife was back to the home from the relative’s house. Whatever I have written above, was just a dream. But I was happy. A story has been written already on the subject wanted by me. It was written 100 percent in the dream with the help of the “The Dream Advisor” the dream.


First salary rise of Mr. Dog

This is in response to the Weekly Discover Challenges opening line

A person was having a dog. The dog could understand and speak human language. But, the main duty of the dog was to protect the house.

One day

Dog:       Good morning Master

Master:   Very good morning

Dog:       Master,  That … that …that ….

Master:   Oh, Mr. Dog, come on, and say whatever you want to say without fear.

Dog:        Master, you are giving me very less food in the dinner. That is not sufficient for me.

Master:   That is to help you, otherwise you will sleep and you will not be able to protect the house, which is your main duty.

Dog:        That is fine Master, but you are not giving me weekly off also. I have to work all the seven days. I never got salary rise. Kindly increase my salary (first rise) at least 20%, by giving me 20% more food in the dinner.

Master:    Well, you have worked for long time with me and doing hard work also. So I will do something for you. Every Tuesday night I am not sleeping because, I have to write an article on the topic Weekly Discover Challenges. So Every Tuesday evening, you can have as much food as you want and then you can sleep full night.

Dog:  Thank you, Thank you very much Master

Tuesday night

The dog had enough food then slept happily. There was a thief, who was watching this house for long time. Today he saw that, dog is sleeping. He came to the house to steal something. As Master was not sleeping and the light was on inside the house, he could not enter the house. But outside, the only thing he saw was the small size house made for the dog. So Thief took away the dog’s house.

Morning, the dog saw his house missing. The dog rushed to the master to inform this. Master told the dog not to worry, as he will arrange a new house. The dog was very happy and thanked the master.

2nd Tuesday night

Thief came again and this time took away the new house also happily. Morning, when dog saw that, new house is also missing; he rushed to the master to inform this. The dog was very much worried now.

Master:  Do not worry, I will buy another house for you, but I do not want this to happen again. As, I am not sleeping Tuesday night, Next Tuesday I will sit outside in the fresh air ( It was summer time) and write my story. You can sleep inside the house. The dog was very happy.

(Dear Readers, Nobody know the future, so Master and dog also were not aware about the next third Tuesday night. But I am the writer and Not only I know the future of characters of my story, but I can change the future also. I know that trouble  is not over for them So, )

3rd Tuesday night

The thief came again. He saw master sitting outside, but it was dark inside the house. So, he entered the house from the back door and took away some gold ornaments. Now all were happy. The Master is writing story outside the house happily. The Dog is sleeping happily. Thief also is happy because of gold. But no happiness will last forever.

Morning Master and dog both were worried. They did not know, what to do

(Dear Readers, I want to continue my story and have decided to help them. I am telling this because I will play some role in this story )

Thursday night,

Master and Dog, both of them saw a dream. They came to know that Mr. G K Agrawal ( myself the writer ) can help them. They also got opportunity to meet me in the dream. So they came to me.

Dog and Master:  Good morning Sir,

MY self:   Good morning, you are not looking happy,

Dog:        Sir, kindly help us. You know our problem very well.

Myself:    Well, You want to be happy always. This is not allowed by the nature. Anyway, do you have any suggestion, I could help you.

Dog:       Sir, If Police arrest the thief then ..

Myself:   Ok, agreed

Both of them thanked me and went back happily. (This meeting with me took place in their dream)

Next day (Friday), the thief was arrested by the Police. The dog was happy. But the master was not happy, so he called the dog.

Master: See Mr. Dog, I brought you to protect my house. I have to spend money also. But now the thief is arrested so I do not need you service. You are suspended with the benefit of  one month notice.

The dog collapsed and started praying

Dog:    Master, kindly do not do that, otherwise I will be homeless and without food. I will not take Tuesday off. You can reduce my salary further by reducing the food quantity in the dinner.

Afterword both of them lived happily as per earlier arrangements.
