Last Night’s Leopard Dream

It took me a while to calm down after last night’s clown nightmare.  When I did finally manage to  fall back asleep, I immediately had another dream.  Fortunately, this one didn’t involve clowns.

Instead, in this dream, I was in the living room and I watching two leopard cubs play with each other.  They were playing just like little kittens.  They chased each other around the room.  They climbed the furniture.  They had several little mock fights.  They were adorable!

I was sitting on the couch watching them and thinking about how cute they were.  Suddenly, in my dream, I realized that none of this made any sense.  Regardless of how cute they were at that moment, they were eventually going to grow up.

“Oh my God,” I said as they continued to run around the living room, “how am I going to raise two leopards?”

And that’s when I woke up.

Last Night’s Scary Clown Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I was sitting in our den, watching TV late at night.  There was a huge storm raging outside — lightning, thunder, torrential rainfall, the works.  There was a flash of lightning, followed by explosive thunder.  The house was plunged into darkness.

As the rumbling of the thunder faded away, it was replaced by a light tapping.

I looked over my shoulder, at the sliding glass door that led out to the back patio.  It was too dark for me to see anything on the patio but still, the tapping continued.

tap…. tap …. tap …. tap ….

Suddenly, there was another flash of lightning, one that illuminated the night just long enough to reveal a clown standing on the other side of the door, tapping on the glass.

At the same time that I saw the clown, I also realized that the door wasn’t locked.  I jumped up from the couch and ran over to the door but, just as I reached it, the door slid open and a white gloved hand grabbed my wrist!

And that, thankfully, is when I finally woke up.  I realize this is a pretty common nightmare and I’ve actually had several variations of this dream, though this is the first time that the intruder on the porch turned out to be a clown!  What’s strange about this dream is that, for the most part, clowns don’t even disturb me.  I’m usually the one who makes fun of my friends for being scared of them.

Before anyone asks, I did not watch It before going to bed last night.  I do have to admit, though, that the clown did bear a certain resemblance to Pennywise.

Who knows?  Maybe I was just having a bad Sims flashback….

 

 

Last Night’s Saved By The Bell Dream

Last night, I dreamed that I was a teenager in high school again.  I was at my house (and, in the dream, it was even the house where we lived when I was in high school) and all of my friends from the drama club were there.  We were talking about putting on a play that I had written.  Some of them were upset that I was not only the writer and the director but that I had given myself the lead role as well.  They kept complaining that I had given all of the good lines to myself.

“Well,” I said, “if you want a good line, write your own damn play.”

Mostly to shut them up, I then turned on the TV.  Simon Cowell appeared on the screen, singing the Saved By The Bell theme song.  However, this was the extended version of the song, which meant it had verses that we had never heard before.

At one point, Simon sang, “We all know gwam means lame/I’m saved by the bell….”

My friends and I looked at each other and said, “Gwam?”

On the TV, Simon repeated, “We all know gwam means lame/ I’m saved by the bell….”

“This is going in the play,” I said.

And that’s when I woke up.

Last Night’s Social Media Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I logged onto my twitter account and discovered that all of my followers had apparently unfollowed.  Thinking that this had to be some sort of mistake, I wrote an email to twitter support.  However, just as I was about hit send, there was a huge clasp of thunder and all the power went out in my house.  I then went to my living room window, a stared out at the front yard.  It was raining, the wind was howling, and the streets were flooded.  With each flash of lightning, I caught a glimpse of what appeared to be someone standing in the middle of the street.

And that’s when I woke up.

Last Night’s Weird Ben Affleck Related Dream

(Disclaimer: I do not know Ben Affleck.  I have never met Ben Affleck.  My commentary on the behavior of Dream Ben Affleck should not be taken as any sort of commentary on the behavior of real-life Ben Affleck)

After a month-long hiatus, I am happy to return to my online dream journal with a weird dream about Ben Affleck.

Now, as often happens with dreams, I can’t remember all of the details.  But here’s what I can tell you:

In my dream, I was once again in high school.  This is actually kind of a reoccurring theme in my dreams, though usually I find myself back in college.  What was unique this time is that I wasn’t an adult back in high school.  Instead, I was a teenager again.

My friends and I were attending some sort of weekend, educational retreat that was being held in this small town that sat high atop a snow-covered mountain.  As soon as we arrived, I noticed that Ben Affleck was following our group around.  I asked one of my friends why Ben Affleck was following us around and she said she didn’t know but that he was everyone’s friend.

Anyway, as the weekend progressed, my classmates and I went to various classes that were held across town.  Ben Affleck tagged along with us.  Then, one day, I noticed that Ben was no longer with us.  I asked where he was and I was told that Ben had been arrested for unpaid speeding tickets and was sitting in jail.  So, I called up a lawyer and I asked him if he could come to the town and get Ben out of jail.  The lawyer agreed.

My friends and I were all standing outside the police station, waiting for Ben to get out of jail.  When Ben finally exited the police station, we all cheered but Ben ignored all of us and walked away without saying a word.

“You know,” I yelled, “I got you an attorney!  A thank you would be nice!”

And that’s when I woke up.

Last Night’s Simple But Super Intense Nightmare

Last night’s dream was a terrible one.

In the dream, I was staying, by myself, at a motel.  I had just stepped out of the shower and I was still in the bathroom when suddenly, I heard footsteps outside.  I opened the bathroom door just enough to peek into the room and I saw a bearded, balding man, dressed in all black, searching my room.  Suddenly, he stopped and looked over at the bathroom door.

That woke me right up.  It was a very short and very simple dream but it felt so real that, after I woke up, I had to get out of bed and walk around for a few minutes, just to make sure that it had all been a dream.  Fortunately, it had been.

Before anyone asks, the man in my dream was not anyone that I know in real life.  He was just a generic evil stranger.  Also, I’m not looking for any interpretations of this dream.  I’m just sharing it because it was so intense.

Last Night’s Art Gallery Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I was at a showing at an art gallery.  It was a very fancy affair and the people around me were very rich and very sophisticated.  Everyone was drinking wine, except for me.  Everyone kept asking me if I wanted a glass and I had to keep explaining that I don’t drink and it was all very awkward.  It didn’t help that the paintings were all rather dull, as well.

Having grown frustrated with the boring showing, I stepped outside of the gallery and I discovered that there was a group of people standing on the sidewalk in front of the doorway.  I asked them if they were waiting for something and a middle-aged man in a tuxedo (he appeared to be the leader of the group) told me that they had gotten bored with the show and now, they were waiting for a portal to open.

Suddenly, there was a flash of red light and I was standing, alone, in front of the storage locker.  Somehow, I instinctively understood that the portal had opened and I had been transported to a new location.

Off in the distance, I heard the sound of a car approaching.

And then I woke up.
