Last Night’s Angsty Fragment of a Dream

I don’t remember much about last night’s dreams.  I know that a lot of my friends were visiting and we were watching Barefoot in the Park.  I was upset that someone had parked their car in the backyard.  Then, when the movie ended, I was really upset that everyone left.  Just fragments of movies and angst.

Last Night’s Teaching Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I was teaching a creative writing course.  There were about 20 people in my class and I asked each one of them to tell me what they were working on.  As each one of them told me about the stories they were working on, I started to get excited about reading them.  Then I remembered that today was the final day of class and that I’d probably never see any of them ever again.

Last Night’s Lake Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I was up at Lake Texoma.  I was standing out on the deck of my cousin’s lake house, looking at the lake.  Even though the sun was shining and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, there was still a brisk wind blowing.  The top of the lake was frozen but I could still sea fish swimming below the ice.  When I woke up, I was just about to climb over the railing of the deck and jump down to the ice below.

Last Night’s Angry Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I was standing out in my front yard.  I was wearing a black cocktail dress.  My Dad and my Aunt were standing beside me.  I realized that my car was not parked in the driveway.

“Where’s my car?” I asked.

“It’s been towed for the weekend,” my Dad told me.

“What?” I said.

My aunt said, “The mechanic said it was a piece of junk.”  I started to protest but my aunt cut me off. “I know it looked alright but it was a piece of junk.”

As my aunt was talking, a two truck drove down the street, dragging my car behind it.

Angry, I turned to my aunt and my father.  “You had no right to let them take my car!” I shouted.

Neither said anything so I kept yelling at them about how unfair it was to take away my car.  While I was shouting, I saw there were several people standing in the doorway of my house, staring at me and smirking.

“Stop it, Lisa,” my aunt finally said, “All those people are going to laugh at you.”

Suddenly, I noticed that my cat was running around in the front yard.

“How did he get out!?” I yelled.

No one answered.

“Well, help me out!” I shouted at them.

And that’s when I woke up.

Last Night’s Dream About The Rain

Last night, I dreamt that I was curled up on my couch in my living room, wearing a green nightshirt and listening to the sound of the rain falling outside.  It was night and all of the lights were out and the room was only occasionally illuminated by a flash of lightning.

It was a nice dream.
