A Serious Case of Cricotine Withdrawal

Naples Cricket ClubSo, I’ve been having these dreams lately.

There’s this one dream where I’m running down a lawn chasing this little red ball without ever being able to reach it.

In the other dream I’m just walking at a leisurely pace and then, all of a sudden, I have this urge to bend over quickly and swing my right arm over my head in a forward motion.

And then there is the one where a little red object is coming at me at high speed and I try to swash it away with a heavy stick. Only to make that object pop up high into the air and then hitting me on the head.

Anybody any idea what these dreams could mean?

I’m afraid it could be a serious case of CRICOTINE WITHDRAWAL!
