When you spend over an hour on Wikipedia reading about various gangs and mobsters, do not be surprised that you have mafia-style dreams.
Also, you have never been shot. (*Knock on wood*) So why would you point to a scar on your hip (not real) in your dream and say, "Oh, when I got shot, it barely hurt. Just a bad pinch."?
Why, why, why is it whenever I get onto your site, I inevitably wind up reading about murder, and c-r-i-m-e-s, and gory, grisly deaths? Especially when I started off reading about something innocent?
