Almost every night I experience a dream that, when shared with others, is described as strange, or worse. Now I will share them with the world, or whoever stumbles upon this blog. Feel free to analyze the dreams, I usually find the analysis more interesting than the actual dream.

Long Island, NY

Last night I dreamed we took a trip. We took a ferry to Long Island, NY. The ferry boat was huge with lots of interesting things on board. When the boat arrived at LI it docked in a huge building that housed a gift shop, a few restaurants, a comedy club, an arcade and a huge lobby area. It was outfitted and decorated quite nicely. I noticed a security guy on an upper level in a corner. I checked another corner and there was another security guard. There was one in each corner. They were all young, very well built, and outfitted more like SWAT team members rather than an average security guard. They continually looked out the huge windows, out into the air, and down into the water, then would scan the crowd, and also the ceiling of the building. We made our way to the comedy club and had a seat. Before long a young man came out and performed. He was pretty entertaining. After about an hour we moved on elsewhere in the building to have dinner. For some reason we were quite dressed up. I was wearing a big beautiful emerald color ball gown and accessorized with some beautiful sparkly jewelry. Dinner was served in a huge dining area that had large tall cushy booths as well as big long tables. We were seated in a booth in a corner along with two other couples. One couple was older, married almost 40 years, the other couple was closer to our age. We ate dinner and it took hours because there were about 6 courses. After dinner we roamed around the dining room chatting with other people and just taking in the surroundings. When we went back downstairs we were back in our regular clothes and we had assigned seating for some reason. Also confusing was my husband and I were not seated together, he was a few rows behind me. We both took out our phones and texted each other since we couldn't carry on a face to face conversation. I could tell we were moving then all of a sudden it felt like we were falling out of the sky. Just as everyone was about to scream, rock music started playing and the comedian from the club popped up and announced we were on a unique airplane that would take us for a tour. He continued to narrate as we flew. We were able to go through parts of the city and I remember being amazed at the brick buildings; their age, their texture, they character. We went out over the water, did some rolls so you saw everything from every angle. It was a crazy ride! Then I woke up.

Crazy College

Last night I dreamed a friend of mine and I went to a college to visit. In the dream we went to school there (even though in real life nothing at all was familiar about this place). Since the boys and girls dorms were separate, we went to the boys dorm first. We joked that's where we spent most of our time. Things had certainly changed. They had new technological gadgets in the lobby and a mini-gym right there in the lobby. They also had various 'elevator' options. There were elevators, escalators, stairs, a 'roller coaster car,' and a bouncy floor. The roller coaster car zig zagged it's way up and down the building more like a ride and the bouncy floor was a series of mattress types mats that fell fast and furious so you kinda bounced and free fell to your destination. We went upstairs and found that lockers were replaced by artsy old wooden doors, colorfully painted, and arranged interestingly. We wandered around a while then when it was time to go, we took the elevator all the way up to the top floor. Then we chose a different way down. I chose the bouncy floor and my friend chose the roller coaster cart. We were both in our positions, getting ready to descend, and we could see each other. We waved then I went plummeting down. I wasn't even touching the mat we were falling so fast. It was disconcerting but also pretty fun. After getting to the bottom we went outside. I woke up.

A Kidnapping and Shopping Spree

Last night I had two dreams. In the first, I was kidnapped. I was in a room that was pitch black and I could tell someone was there but I couldn't see well enough. Suddenly a face appeared but only for a second then everything went black. When I woke up I was in a trashed apartment. A face appeared. Their mouth was moving, they were speaking to me, but I couldn't understand a word. It sounded like Chinese or maybe Japanese but I wasn't sure. They looked angry and I really wish I understood what they wanted with me. I was there for a few days and then finally one day we had a communication breakthrough. And then we could communicate a little bit. I now knew this person was involved in an effort to use English speaking people to convince others that all was well by forcing them to write things. After several more days I was able to convince this person that I really couldn't do that because it was dishonest. This person seemed to understand and wasn't completely unreasonable. Then I woke up. When I fell back asleep I dreamed I was at a store that was having a huge sale. I was looking for some specific shoes so I started to wade in among the other hundreds of women excited by the sale. I found a pair of boots for $40 but wasn't having much luck finding the other kinds of shoes I wanted. Finally, as some of the people were clearing out of the store, I spotted some promising shoes. I made my way over to the rack and tried on a few pair. One would work, they weren't fabulous, but would work. I had higher hopes for another style. But that pair was in a case, under lock and key. They were on sale for a great price too so I was super excited to try them on. I called for some help but no employee came by. After I waited a few minutes I walked over to some people I thought could help me. They couldn't but they said they would tell someone who would be right over. I went back to the case to wait. After a few minutes I heard an announcement, the sale would be ending in 5 minutes. I panicked, where was the employee that was supposed to help me? I called again for someone, no one came. The sale ended. Everything I had shopped for, the great deals I had in my arms, were no good. I was frustrated. In a fit of anger I threw my stuff down on the floor and left. I knew I got bad looks but I didn't care. Then I woke up.

Summer Trauma

Last night I dreamed it was summer and my brother and I were on the deck. My kid was swimming in the pool and then got out to play. My mom came out with us and sat me down to eat a snack with her. I refused because she was about to eat a bug. It was a huge mosquito looking thing and she took a leg and offered it to me. I was keeping an eye on my child playing in the yard. There was an old A-frame ladder nearby and after reaching the top, I heard a loud thud. I heard the crying and I was so scared there was a serious injury. Then I woke up.

Last night I dreamed I was taking care of a little baby girl. One day, after being dropped off, we played for a bit then the phone rang. I didn't answer it but my dad did and he sounded mad. "I'm pulling up your drivers license right now!" he said. I was wondering what in the world was going on. Then he said he already called the police. When he got off the phone I asked what in the world that was about. He said it was a criminal doing cold calls trying to rip people off. During the conversation dad went online to look up the scam and found it to be just that, a scam, then went to a known criminals site. I was a little worried. The way he talked to this guy was pretty rough and that would only anger the criminal. A little while later I put the baby down for a nap and tucked her away in a different room. A few minutes later I heard a small noise. It sounded like the storm door but it was so faint. I peeked around the corner to look down the front hall and saw a young man, shirtless, covered with muscles and tattoos. His jeans were torn and he looked angry. He spotted me, gritted his teeth, and was growling. I backed away and my eyes were huge. I was trying to scream for somebody, people were downstairs, but I couldn't scream. I kept trying to yell but nothing would come out. Then I woke up.
