Weird Dream Channel

I am in line at a CVS or Rite-Aid type drugstore. The cashier is a tall, skinny man with black-framed glasses who is wearing a yellow raincoat over his dark blue uniform. As he is finishing scanning my purchases, I pick up a wooden fish-shaped object from one of those "buy on impulse" racks they have near the registers. It's flat, about 10" long and maybe 5" wide, and looks like some tropical ornament. I put that on the conveyor belt, and as soon as he sees it, the cashier throws a fit. He yells for his manager, who is at a stand a few feet behind him. Something about "pedophile". She doesn't even look up, so he runs over to her. They have a short, animated conversation, which they take outside. I can see them through the sliding glass doors, looking back at me,  and I get the impression she is calling the police.

I look at the fish figure to see if there is anything which would hint at what is going on. I see a little sticker on it which says "Hawaiian Warfish". I take the thing outside, and shove the label under their noses, yelling at them that it's only a fish.

I wake up still yelling, breathing heavily, still in a panic.
