Keelie snuggled into Dr. Rou’s couch and began eating a large box of chocolates, one by one, as usual. Dr. Rou hoped that he would be able to help cure his 40 year-old patient’s life-long eating disorder in the six sessions that Keelie’s insurance had approved to pay for.
Dr. Rou said, “Keelie, did you write your dreams down as I asked?”
“Yes, Dr. Rou.”
“OK let’s hear about them.”
“In Monday’s dream, I was an elephant, enjoying life on the savannah. In Tuesday’s dream, I was a dandelion puff, floating in the breeze. In Thursday’s dream, I was dating James Bond.”
“Keelie, the message is clear. You are heavy now, but you want to be light, so you can date gorgeous men.”
Keelie stopped chewing, looked at Dr. Rou, and said, “You’re right. Now what?”
