I was getting ready this morning thinking I had just bought a new hair product that I was out of but couldn’t find, and realized that I had dreamed last night that I bought the product. I told Andrew how frustrating it was to take care of everything on your “to-do” list in your dreams and then realizing you dreamed it, and having to do it all over again! …he giggled.
Have you ever had a dream and actually known you were dreaming throughout the dream… telling yourself not to forget this awesome idea when you wake up so that you can be a trend setter? Move mountains? Make the world a better place?
…Well, that was me last night! I was determined that I had the best dream idea ever! I remembered waking up throughout the night last night thinking “I’ve got to remember this so that I can tell people about it and get this awesome idea started as soon as possible!” This thought process carried on throughout the night waking me up every half hour (YES, half hour…). I think it was because I was so excited to tell Andrew all about it, but he was asleep and I did not want to wake him up to tell him about it. (That would just be mean, right?)
BEEP BEEEP BEEEEP! Off goes my 5:30 am alarm (the fifth alarm of the morning because I set my alarm every 15 minutes from 4:30 on). I used to think of it as a treat, giving myself those extra 15 minutes to sleep, but 15 became 30, and 30 became 45 and … well you get the idea. So, 5 alarms later, I am DETERMINED that Andrew would love to hear my amazing idea, and he will think it is just as amazing. YES, and I better get it off my mind before I forget about it, or this amazing idea would just go to waste!
“ANDREW, are you awake? … ” He rolls and groans and hesitantly says yes. So I proceed to tell him about my dream…
SIDE NOTE: Have you ever thought you had the best idea in the world, and when you actually start telling someone your idea, you realize that is it the worst idea ever, and you don’t know how it could ever work out. In fact, it should have never been brought up or even thought of in the first place??
That was what I experienced this morning…
So here was my “AMAZING” brilliant dream idea:
(In my actual dream, this happened and I had a BLAST playing!)
There should be this game that people roller-blade with beer filled camel packs on their back. So the rules are that you can only move while you are drinking beer. But when you stop drinking (and you have to stop to breathe and swallow sometimes…) you have to stop moving. This causes people to collide into each other, just a total mess of chaos. So you have to be strategic when you stop. There are set boundaries that the players have to stay in to be in the game (like a basketball court, but bigger). At any time you are not drinking, other players can tap you. If another player touches you and you are not drinking, you are out of the game. So the last player standing wins!
REALLY??? REALLY?? and BEER? Straw in mouth while moving?? (So unsafe!) Why on earth would I have a dream like this, and even worse, why did I think this was such an amazing idea?? I am so embarrassed…
After I told Andrew, he really did not have much to say… I just told him to forget about it and go back to sleep. Then I got to thinking about dreams. They are so imaginative and creative, things I never even knew or thought my mind and body would think of or could do. What do they mean? Wouldn’t it be neat if we could record our dreams? …We could tap into our unconsciousness and see what really happens when we are sleeping, and everything we are thinking about? Do you think we could find the cure for all cancer in someone’s dreams? Or the answers to all of our questions? I really wish I could see everything I dream about… Then again, it is sort of terrifying to think that all of my dreams have the possibility to be like the one described above.
Okay, maybe I can’t cure cancer, or don’t have the answers to all of our questions, but I am sure someone out there does. If only I could see their dreams…
