Of Dogs and Divas

I dreamed that I was living on a farm. Buster was there and we got another dog that was a lab as well. Unlike Buster, he was fearless and his favorite thing was to jump in the pond and swim. He would get in the pond every time he was near it. I saw a little girl giving him Denta Sticks and someone asked if it was ok that he was eating an entire bag. I freaked out and said no.  The little girl got upset and I said that eithe she or Dylan could give him his one per day.

Then suddenly we saw an army nearby. They saw our house and started running for it. I panicked and tried to call Michael. I was so afraid that I had a hard time dialing the numbers and really had to concentrate. When I called he said it would be fine, that they only wanted shelter and rest. I was in a group of people and when we got back to the house there were guards there and they let us right in. I was riding on the shoulders of my twin brother and as soon as we got through the door he collapsed and passed out.

Then we were in the bathroom getting ready to leave. There were several young men there who were putting on sparkly pink lipstick and they were getting ready to go to the club.

Risk Live

I had a strange dream. I don’t actually remember the whole thing but it had to do with leaders and society. First, people were moving into different houses in the neighborhood. It just so happened that me and my immediate neighbors all moved so we were still neighbors in the same positions- just different parts of the neighborhood. Dad was there, and there was something about ratings PF Changs orange chicken. There was an old house that was burned to the ground. There was a play in which different people performed. Mostly comedians. In the end it was a parody of Donald Trump. Then there was a battle to take over land. I was in the car with an unofficial leader (there was another older, named leader but this young man was calling he shots.) we had mapped out different strategies to take over land. The land parcels were drawn out like square pizza slices with water in between. He ended up saying that every woman needed to swim into this area of water and claim a certain parcel of land. Because he claims added up to more than the star space we ended up claiming all of that plus the next area. He jumped out of the car too fast for us to questions and it was done before we could think too much about it.

Looks can be Deceiving

In my dream I was an adult (I looked and felt like I do now) but I was a child (living at home with my parents.) They had just bought a new house- it was big and fancy. I thought about having a party because they were out of town but I didn’t want to deal with cleaning up afterward. Instead while they were gone I went and picked up a printer in a repair shop. I got there and there was a younger kid trying to pick something up and they wouldn’t let him. When I got to the window they were going to let me as long as I could verify all their information. But since they had just moved I couldn’t remember their address. While I was there, my friend Jan came in with her son. Her son (in the dream) was a teenager and was my age. I don’t know if we were dating or if she was trying to set us up. I was interested. She invited me over to swim the next day and I was stressed because I knew I looked more like a mom than a teenager and I was worried he wouldn’t want to date me.

Last Dance

I dreamed I was at some kind of a school dance. It was the kids’ school though not mine. One of their teachers was supposed to dance and he picked me to dance with. I told him that he should choose another mom but he said no and so I felt proud that he picked me. Afterward, he went into a locker room. I left him a gift outside the door and left. I thought to myself that I should have proposed to him. Then I went to catch a flight. It was an international flight and I was supposed to be on it an hour early. I was sitting in the gate area reading a book. It had a terrible ending- just suddenly ended without closure. I got up and realized my flight had already boarded and they wouldn’t let me on. I finally got on and it was the Olympic swimming team but they were all sick and quarantined with all these tubes. It was awful.

Cleaning out the attic

I dreamed that I had moved into a new house. It was very old. First I was looking in a separate building and it had a restaurant decorated with Coke memorabilia, a couple of offices, a few bedrooms, etc. it was in terrible shape and had a lot of damage but I had hopes to redo it. In the meantime it was going to be storage. There was a small church in one of the buildings and someone pulled it out and put it in the empty swimming pool until we could find somewhere else for it. As I was leaving, the building caught on fire but I realized someone did it on purpose so I took a bellows in and startled fanning the flames. 

Then mom and dad came to visit. I gave them the tour but dad couldn’t walk very far so he decided to spend the night. I got him toward the end of the house and there was a bed and a couch they slept on. I turned on the light in the closest bathroom so they could see it in the night. There were two or three nearby bathrooms but several requires going up or down stairs so I showed him one that didn’t. I slept back there too so I could help him to and from the bathroom. 

Also noteworthy there were several bedrooms and bathrooms that we were not using. Mom and dad took a Christmas tree and boxes of decorations we had never unpacked and sorted them. I put them in an unused bedroom for storage.

Then the scene switched and I had gone swimming (the church was no longer in the pool.) I was in a family much like the Beverly Hillbilliies and I didn’t know how to act. I was naked in the pool and people were making fun of me. Two girls in particular were trying to get me to go to play mini golf naked so I would get arrested. Before they came along I was having a great time swimming. Then my old high school friend Rebecca came over and tried to hold my head underwater. I was so upset she had turned on me. I went running back to the house. Her mother tried to stop me and calm me down. Then she had two brothers (only in the dream). They each came and hugged me and told me it would be alright. I was touched that they ignored the fact I was naked to do this. I started back toward where mom and dad were sleeping and The mom said we were going to the VA hospital to get my benefits- did I have my drivers license? Then suddenly we were in an RV moving and there was a ball of lightning on the road next to us.

Headbanging Zombies

Dylan had decided to play the drums in the band, and so he was trying to learn the drums.  For a part of this dream, I switched places with Dylan and so *I* was trying to learn the drums.  He was trying to learn on a metal drum of some sort – it didn’t look like a normal drum.  There was a pool party, and there was a ghost of some sort that was making people cut other people’s heads open.  I know for sure that Mr. Baker’s head and Mr. Harrison’s heads were cut, but there may have been others.  When they were cut open, it was a long slash from one side of their forehead to the other.  It could be covered with a baseball cap or hat.

I woke up for a few minutes, then went back to sleep, and the dream resumed.

There was someone else there – I believe it was my Mom. We were standing around, and there was a plate of sushi that included a sushi roll, but also two squiggly jello-like things.  One of the squiggly things was larger than the other.  I was eating the smaller squiggles, but I thought that the larger one (though it was meant to prevent nausea) was going to make me black out and perhaps cause me to cut people’s heads open!  She ate both, though, without consequence.

Later, Alex was getting ready to leave the house for lunch with friends.    A second car pulled up with a car full of boys (but they weren’t quite right – I thought they might have been zombies) and they were handing out boxes of oatmeal, and we determined this is what was causing the attacks.  Our friend Jimbo pulled into the driveway and yelled at them, saying “Never again!”  They pulled out, but he kept yelling and directed it at Alex, but Alex wouldn’t respond.  The boys in the car Alex was in were obviously not quite right either. They kept laughing at Jimbo, and when I asked, “Do you hear him?” They said that all he was saying was “Ribbit.”  They were wearing orange and blue sparkly lipstick.  I told Alex to get out of the car, and he shook his head and said no, so I told him I was taking his xbox.  I ran upstairs, looking for his car keys to take along the way – but I never found them. (we were in our old house in Annandale) When I got upstairs, I was trying to unhook the xbox.  He came up and agreed to stay in and not go to lunch.  I was very angry, but I knew about the oatmeal and hadn’t done anything about it, so I felt guilty about that.

Zebra Fish Beach

I dreamed that I was someplace on the coast for work.  I’d been one place, now this was a different place with beautiful beach views.  I went down in the water, and there were waves coming in, but one of them went in my mouth and I got a mouth full of sand!  There was a younger girl there (20?) and she wanted to take an “extreme swimming” class.  I didn’t want to do it, but I did want to watch her.  There  was a fish in the water that looked like a zebra – the same markings, but with fish skin instead of fur/hair!
