It was Halloween, and the band was putting on some kind of show (as if it was drama club, I guess). This show was physically located where there was a hardware store in Reed City... or maybe in the old Hotel.
Anyway, I was supposed to be dressed as a pirate, but hadn't put together the costume. I was supposed to have gotten stuff from home. Now there was not enough time to do that. I went to some other local store (one which does not exist in real life), and asked if there was any way to get a pirate hat even though it was already all hallow's eve. (For some reason the hat was the most important part of the costume.) The clerk was an expert at making stuff out of paper, and was able to make me one pretty quick. It wasn't tricorner though. Actually, it looked more like a witch hat, but he had some pictures of pirates wearing that style of hat and assured me it was a pirate hat.
After that I wandered around some. I don't think I made it back to the show.
I woke up (in the dream) feeling oddly heavy. I discovered that weights were attached to me-- varying-sized metal ball bearings, in sacks attached to clips attached to my belt. Yea, freudian interpretation, whatever. Anyway, I took off the two really heavy ones and didn't bother with the rest. They were all on the rear side of my belt so it was hard in the dream to find and unclip them.
Someone (mom?) explained that the weights were from the neighbor upstairs. (This was a house we've never lived in.) She had not been using them, so someone took them. Apparently without asking. There may have been the idea that that neighbor had been gone along time-- IE, her stuff was just sitting up there, abandoned. This does not explain how they got on my belt (or why I was wearing pants when I got up).
