I’ve been suffering from some seasonal allergies lately and so last night I decided to take a Benadryl before bed. I took the medicine and sat down to read a comic and shortly thereafter became increasingly tired. Now I am not a Benadryl man, so I was not used to the sleepiness that suddenly took over my body. I stumbled into bed and before I even had the covers over me, I was asleep. That’s when I had the vision.
Now, since I grew up going to church every Sunday, I know exactly how a vision is supposed to work and how I should describe it. In scripture. Thus I did.
The Vision of Travis
- And it came to pass that as I slept in my bed, I heard a voice call out my name.
- But I did not listen and thus the voice called again, louder.
- And I arose from my bed but found myself alone. I did return to sleep.
- As I slept, I heard my name a third time and did arise.
- And yea, as I listened, the voice did come from my son’s room. So I did enter.
- Yea, I entered into my son’s room and I did see a tiny angel on my son’s bed. Thus he spoke unto me.
- He said, “look”. And I did look and he was pointing at Spider-man and I did beheld the Spider-manness of it.
- And he said, “look”. And I did look and he was pointing at some cars on the bed and great were the number of cars thereof.
- Each car being a different color.
- And he said, “look”. And I did look and beheld the blanket he held up and there were tiny monkeys on it.
- And it came to pass that I did ask the angel what he would havest me do?
- And he spoke to my ears saying, “drink” and I did partake of some water and it was sweet to the taste.
- And the angel became angry and said, “no, me drink!” So I did give him the water and he did drink.
- Thus once the angel was done partaking the water, he spoke unto me saying, “watch a movie?”
- And thus I opened my eyes that I could see the movie of which he spoke.
- And it came to pass that while I gazed unto sky to see the movie that the tiny angel left me and moved into the kitchen.
- I did follow the tiny angel and he gazed upon the fruit snacks. Thus he spoke unto me saying, “Happy Snack?”
- And it came to pass as I pondered the meaning of this, was the snack of man meant to bring happiness?
- The angel did become angry and he took the form of a devil demanding of me, “Happy Snack!”
- As I beheld the transformation, my heart filled with fear for the tiny devil was jumping up and down and slamming his hands onto the floor.
- The tiny devil became louder and I begged unto him for his forgiveness. But his anger was not witheld against me.
- And it came to pass that I did plead unto my God to let this devil pass and be gone.
- And as the scriptures say, ask and ye shall receive.
- I beheld a new angel and she did appear unto me as my wife and did comfort me saying, “Yea, Simon is just hungry canst thou feed him?”
- And I spoke unto the angel saying, “Am I to feed him of the good word or doth he seek the fishes and bread of man?”
- And it came to pass that the angel starred at me for what felt like an eternity. She finally spoke saying, “Go back to bed and gain rest. Thou art being weird.”
- Thus I began my journey back to my bed. As I journeyed hence the tiny devil did return to the form of an angel and he spoke unto me saying, “Good night Daddy.”
- As I returned to bed, I did ponder the meaning of the vision and wondered if the tiny angel spoke of the daddy of us all. Our father in heaven. What does it mean to sleep?
- And thus I did return to rest.
- And it came to pass that I did dream about bugs stealing my cellphone on the beach. Amen.
