Last Night’s Convenience Store Dream

Last night, I dreamt that I was in a 7-11 at two in the morning. I had been driving somewhere but I had decided to stop off and get a Coke. The store, however, appeared to be deserted. I grabbed the coke and then I went up to the front register and I waited to see if a cashier was going to show up.

“Hello,” I said, “is anyone here?”

There was no answer. Finally, I signed, grabbed a few dollars from my purse, and put them on the counter. “I’m leaving some money,” I said.

Taking the coke with me, I left the store. As I walked across the parking lot and towards my car, I saw a man walking towards the store. I said, “Hey, I left some money on the counter.”

He stopped and stared at me.

“On the counter,” I said, “I left some money.”

He continued to stare.

“Do you work here?”

He continued to stare.

“Never mind,” I said.

I got in my car and locked the doors. However, when I turned the key in the ignition, the engine wouldn’t start. I reached into my purse and searched for my phone, just to discover that I didn’t have it. “Shit,” I muttered, realizing that I was going to have to get out of the car and ask the creepy man for help.

Taking a deep breath, I got out of the car but the creepy man was nowhere to be seen. And all of the lights in the 7-11 were turned off.

And then I woke up.
