Dream #1,238

Dreamt of swimming naked across a lake at night. The water was warm and murky, and I could make out shapes twisting below the surface. They were birds with very long necks eating fish. I flipped over on my back and floated for a moment, watching the moon pass through the clouds. When I tried swimming again, I found that my arms and legs wouldn’t move.

I woke up in a panic.

Dreamt I ran into Anne K. in a grocery store. She was working at a group home for troubled boys and was showing a handful of her charges how to shop for food, and they behaved remarkably well for her.

Dream #1,236

Dreamt that Yuko-hime and I were discussing the rental agreement we had with Jenna K. She was living in our spare bedroom for $300 per week when the going rate for such an arrangement was $900 per week. We decided not to increase her rent due to her being such a considerate roommate and kind, generous person.

Dream #1,235

Dreamt of getting ready to take a shower in the bathroom in the Red House. I took off both shirts, then my socks, then my shirt, then my pants, then my next two shirts…And I kept taking off more and more shirts until there was a huge pile of clothing next to the toilet. The pile was as tall as I was and I was still taking off more shirts. The more shirts I took off, the more trapped I felt.

I woke up screaming.

Dream #1,234

Dreamt that Yuko-hime and I were working in the back yard. She was demoing the playhouse and passing the wood to me, and I was burning it in a bonfire. The fire started getting a bit big, so I started a second one on the back stoop. I was a little concerned about the fire spreading to the house, but figured it would be fine. When I turned to go back, I noticed that Yuko-hime had lit the remnants of the playhouse on fire as well. I worried about the bunnies that used to live under there. If there were babies, they may not have gotten out.

Then I noticed that Yuko-hime had also knocked down the Rum Bar and lit that on fire. But that didn’t upset me. It wasn’t until I noticed the total emptiness where the Rum Bar used to be that I started screaming.

I woke up screaming.

Dream #1,233

Dreamt that Nick M., Stephanie B., and I were hosting a birthday party for Lisa H. We did a quick gift exchange before my family arrived. Both Nick and I gave Lisa fun and bizarre hats.
