Last night I had the most interesting dream. Basically, I was an actor in a reboot of the 1980s television series, "The Dukes of Hazzard." Hear me out, this is actually kind of cool.

I was 16-year-old Luke Duke, of Oxnard, California. I was always in trouble, and there was this girl I was getting too close to, so my single mom shipped me off to rural Hazzard County, Wyoming to live with my Uncle Jessie and two cousins - siblings Beaux and Daisy, half-African American teenagers from his other sister's marriage who came to live with him after she died.

Uncle Jessie was a clean-shaven Ernest Borgnine with a ponytail. I soon learned life on his farm was a lot of hard work, but also offered a lot of freedom. Jessie's main source of income was as an illicit marijuana farmer, so we cousins were always getting high!

We cousins had a car - a souped up Lincoln Continental with a black and white paint job we just called "The Lincoln," or "The Prez."

Soon, we were involved in all sorts of silly hijinks at the local high school, and involving a corrupt Hazzard County commissioner named John Boar, who was a fat man who rode a very expensive Harley Davidson motorcycle, so everyone nicknamed him "Boss Hawg."

The shaven-headed local sheriff - a white supremacist survivalist played for laughs - was his crony.

It was weird, because sometimes I was the actor playing the part in a show, other times, I was Luke, sometimes I was me. The setting was beautiful. The farm overlooked a rocky canyon with a clear, rushing river at the bottom. At one point, I told Uncle Jessie I wished this wasn't a TV show, so I could go explore the river.

The only plot point I remember was Uncle Jessie was hosting a wedding on the farm. Our high school football coach was marrying his boyfriend, and we were expecting Boss Hawg and the sheriff to try and disrupt things, even though it wasn't a legal wedding in Wyoming.

Thing is, way to go, subconscious! I could see this as a Showtime or HBO series.
