Dream I Had

I was talking to two people in the living room of a house I long ago lived in and had to go to another room to get something.

Somehow I was outside and saw off in the distance at the entrance to a park near my house, a friend who I'd been avoiding. She had a brightly coloured very large purse and motioned for me to come and look at it. It folded out like a very large child's storybook. I shook my head no and started to walk away.

There was a storage area filled with dvds and I chose some and brought them upstairs. In bed was a really hideous man I see often on the commute home from work. He picked one up off the stack and gestured that it was the one he wanted to see.

He started to tear the outer packaging on the dvd and I got very angry because it had been borrowed from someone at work. I snatched it from him and threw it across the room damaging it more than he had.

He smirked.

I woke up.

I'd say lay off the jalapeno poppers and jaeger shots before bed.

The best dreams end with shoot-outs.

Beth said...

Or layoff the acid before going to bed ...

If dreams really are all about the person having the dream and every element in the dream is representing something about you then it's clear. You hate technology and want sushi for
lunch.

That'll be 350.00$ US. You can send the money order to yourself.

Perhaps it's not too late to start therapy.

Allison said...

I've been hearing interesting dream stories all day. Taking any malaria tablets lately?

Jill said...

Dale, stop saying it wasn't you that wanted that big ugly purse!!! I saw you in the accesoiries section at the mall!!
And have you been watching too much DVDs again?

Chancelucky said...

Too many of those Friday music posts Dale. Your inner self is trying to tell you something.

Chris said...

Dreams are typically weird, right? At least mine are. It's the ones that are too normal that kind of freak me out. You know, the ones where it just seems like you're having a normal day.

Zed said...

I was the first commenter here last night, and my comment was quite witty and pithy. In fact, I thought to myself, Dale's going to love this comment--why, it's one of the wittiest things I've ever said or even read by anyone ANYWHERE!

I laughed and laughed at my remark, as I knew you would. But now it's gone. I think it departed to Blogger's Black Hole, and your life will be emptier for never having read it.

Don't ask me what I said. I forget. But it was spectacular! :)

Shroom-Monkey said...

I stole your dream idea honey, but of course mine was dirty....

darling24_7 said...

Did you see which dvd it was?

Old Lady said...

Would you just burn that f'ing snowman already!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I dreamt about my kid's homework last night. I am the lamest creature that ever drew breath!

Dale said...

I'd say I need more of each Bubs!

That's exactly right Mal. Snay!

Ok Beth, no more antacid before bed for me.

I really appreciate the lengths you go to help out Justa. I'm sending me the cheque right away.

Isn't that what the blog is for CP?

Malaria? Isn't that Donald Trump's wife Allison?

Sorry, it's not my bag Jill.

Why should I start listening to the voices within at this point Chancelucky?

I love the weird ones the best Chris. That's why I keep visiting your blog.

Zed, it's always I this and I that. You weren't here at all. You can't hide your lyin' I's.

You make me so proud Shroomy! Be right over.

It's weird but I have a feeling I did know what it was at the time Darling 24-7. The case was blue and grey but I can't quite recall now.

BeckEye said...

I'd love to be in the room when you take this one to the dream analyst. I'm sure it'll all end up to be about sex or money.

Zed said...

What, it wasn't enough to tell me I have "lyin' I's" ONCE?

SlayGirl said...

I don't know what Frued would say bout that dream but that was freaky. Line? Uh, with a dream like that youre probably fine.

Jill said...

Stop stuturing, Dale!!!(b├ęgeiller, note kite sure how to write it in english, and don't know if you understand french!)

Dale said...

I'm stoking the fires of hell right now Old Lady.

Yes Barbara, you are lame. I hope you did a good job on her homework though.

I'd be disappointed if they weren't about sex and money Beckeye.

Poor Zed, I see that I had the comment I wrote twice. I have now removed the comment I wrote. I hope that I can make it up to you.

Freud probably wouldn't say too much now Slaygirl but back in the day, well who knows?

Stuttering Jill. Ok-k-k-k-k-ay.

Tumuli said...

And I thought I was the only one with psychedelic dreams! Even having read Freud's "Interpretation of Dreams," I cannot decipher some of the wilder, nightmarish ones.

Still, I would love to learn your dream's underlying themes. Perhaps they are omens?

Jill said...

Do you feel shy while talking to me, Dale?

Dale said...

I'm not sure what the themes are here Tumuli but I can say that this is the second appearance of the really hideous man.

No Jill, not at all.

Did everybody hate that song? Or just have no opinion of it? I'm intrigued by your collective lack of intrigue.

Geeti said...

Hmm...are you currently the victim of unwanted sexual/romantic pursuit?

Dale said...

There's no such thing as unwanted sexual / romantic pursuit with me Geeti, I want it all!

"He started to tear the outer packaging on the dvd and I got very angry because it had been borrowed from someone at work. I snatched it from him and threw it across the room damaging it more than he had.

That's okay, it was "Gigli."

Dale said...

So it was a nightmare after all, not for the fact that it was Gigli but that I had borrowed Gigli from someone and wanted to keep it in pristine condition. Yikes.
