Help, What do I do?

I have a problem, I have been offered and I have planned on taking a terrific job ( we will call Job A) in 2 months, this is a dream job to most and something that is close to my heart although it is not what I wish to be doing for the rest of my life, it is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity. Next I have a job offer ( we will call Job B), that pays excellent, has superb benefits (such as paying my way through college, and free health insh.), and I know it will be a good job, yet it does not have enough hours, it has maybe 15-20 hours a week, it may pay great but not for so little time, and I know that I can not get more hours. It would have to be more like a second job.
Now comes the problem, I have just had a phone call, asking me for an interview, I thought the interviews for this job( yup, Job C) were over a week ago, guess not. This job interview is for something that I have wanted for a long time, it will be a great step towards my life dream job. I do know, it is not a once-in-a-life-time opportunity, but it would be a significant job.
I might not be able to take Job B with this last one, being as both could be 3rd shifts. I just don’t know what to do, I have never had to deal with this, I have never ever had this type of luck, or can I in this case call it misfortune? It would have been fortunate if Job C had come before I ever saw Job A . If I take Job A, then I can work Job B for the time till Job A comes along. I believe Job C has a contract. Now I can not be sure I will get Job C, but I know I have only not acquired 2 jobs, once I got an interview. I will know after 9am tomorrow morning.
So I am asking every one who reads this to please tell me what would You do? Job A, B, or C?

In my opinion, always take the job that will further your career. The only exceptions I can think or are if (1) the job gets in the way of school, (2) another job pays better and you absolutely need the money, or (3) the job would get in the way of living your life (that is to say, if you're always running around doing your job and don't have time for yourself and your loved ones, it's not worth it). My two cents, anyway. Good luck!
