The Dreams I Dream

I have, and have always had, the wildest, most vivid dreams when I’m sleeping. Some of them are hilarious in retrospect and I wake up laughing, then laugh at them all day long. Some of them are terrifying and horrible. I might share my dreams with a few people, but for the most part, I keep them to myself, because dream reports can be tedious.

BUT. I need to share the dream I had last night.

Last night, I had a dream that I had a dream that I had a very dramatic dream I somehow figured out how to record on my phone like a movie, then text to Kevin (my husband), so that he could see my dramatic dream.

Hang on. Let me start over. I’m going to start with the dream inside the dream inside the dream. (I think?)

I have a dream. While dreaming, I record the dream and text it to Kevin. He’ll be amazed! But wait! Won’t he also be confused? It’s impossible to record dreams! Kevin will think this is a movie I filmed, with me as the main character and with clearly expensive production values, without telling him!!! He won’t understand it’s a dream! How terrible, to think of Kevin confused by my text! Wake up!

I wake up. I realize it was only a dream that I recorded a dream and texted it to Kevin. Of course it was! Because that would be impossible. Phew! I go to the store to buy some stew meat for dinner. They’re out of stew meat, and anyway, I hate to cook, because I get distracted and burn things. Why am I at the store? What am I going to do if they don’t have any stew meat? This is terrible! Wake up!

I wake up (in reality). I realize that I dreamed that I dreamed that I dreamed a dream that I recorded and texted to Kevin. I have not texted Kevin anything confusing. Kevin is making dinner tonight, as usual. I am safe. WHEW!!!

And that was my dream. Later, when I tried to explain it to my sisters over text, I got confused and realized I needed a chart. I’m pretty sure this is the first dream I have ever had to chart.

I think I’m awake now? That shoveling I did this morning sure felt real…

Happy Monday, everyone :o)
