I don’t dream about tape measures or any other tools, just wanted to get in on the dream action. ;-)

I personally prefer the righty or righty/lefty tapes, so when I hold the tape in my left hand and pun to extend I read the numerals right side up and the increments on the correct side. The tape however, is second to my folding 36” dogwood Chester Rabone rule, which I’ve regularly used since 1978; and it’s still in excellent condition; stays in my apron pocket.

Now, are you trying to ruin mine? ;-)

P.S. I don’t think I’ve ever dreamt about a tape measure…. sorry.

(I may start dreaming about Smitty’s though.)

They sell the Stanley LeverLock 16’ at HD for $5, so it’s hard to not keep a half-dozen around. I’m still always looking for one though.

Rich, I’ve learned that if I only have one, I can always find it. This works for pencils too.
Turns out that if I have lots of them, I am less careful about remembering where I leave them.
When I have only one, it seems I make a point to remember where it is at all times.

Since I have three tapes (good ones), I am always searching for one.
I have dozens of pencils – dang they are hard to find!

I dream about pencils and donuts. I wonder what it could mean?

I have no personal experience with such dreams, but they both are sold a dozen to a box. I’m sure that is the only possible explanation. I bet you dream about eggs too.
