my craaaaazy dreams.

by Ellen in


Well I've seen a thousand things in one place
But I stopped my counting when I saw your face
Erasing memory I feel as though I've never seen a face before
Until I saw your eyes smiling back at me thru my tears
I've been counting all these years
Now suddenly the thousand things I've seen were
Nothing more than dreams of you and me





Last night, I had not one, but 2 dreams that I remember (which is rare)!

In the first one, I dreamed that was at this house, and it was dark and carpeted, and my friend Greg was there, but he didn't remember who I was. I was like doing cartwheels and jumping up and down, and then he finally saw me and we hugged and was lovely. And then, there was this conference at my church and I was running around doing things for it, and then I saw one of my favorite professors, Dr. Judaken. He is very smart, and we talked forever, but he was sitting in one of the extra-small kid's chairs from our Sunday School rooms. It was very strange. Then all of a sudden we were on this crazy adventure with a bunch of small, cartoonish characters (they may have been gnomes...scary) and we were running around, trying to hide behind rocks so we wouldn't get shot. Then some of the gnomes got shot and we were terribly upset. We were in this giant valley with all this green grass and rivers and it was beautiful, but we were running from all these things that were shooting at us.


In the second one, I was riding in the car with Mary Washington (who I haven't seen in years) and we were going to her house. When were there, I noticed that she lived in the same complex as my mom. And then we got out of the car, and instead of Mary, it was Sean. And we were walking into my mom's condo. And I was outraged at him, telling him this was NOT where he lived and we needed to go away. He stopped, turned around, and jokingly told me it was where he lived, and he needed to take a shower. So we went into my mom's house, and she said, "Oh, didn't you know that Sean moved in?" and I was freaking out, because he even had his own room! He was walking around the house like it was no big deal, and he took a shower, and I think that was the last I saw of him. Then I saw the McBrides, and they showed me this photo of their family, but it was like one of those pictures in Harry Potter, where the people in the photos move. They showed me this photo of them at Halloween when the kids were little, and Jake was dressed up as this little green dog, and he was climbing over everyone like he really was a dog. Then I was with a bunch of people that I didn't recognize, but I know that I knew them because we were going on Spring break to New Orleans. So we were there, and we were walking around, getting Sno Cremes and playing with a beach ball in the French Quarter. Then, that night, we were all sitting on white lounge chairs outside of this white tent, and Martha was there, and she was acting very unlike herself in real life... every time someone would go into this white tent, she would rip one side of the tent off, exposing someone who was wearing a speedo, like they had just gotten out of the pool. We were very entertained by all of this, and I suppose that's why were sitting there. I was sitting next to this guy, who I talked to like he was my best friend, and he was very tall and very large like a giant. Martha would come over and talk to us, but she would climb up and sit on his belly, and it was no big deal. Then, in the day time we all went to line up to get coupons for different things. One of them was a day trip to an exotic place like Jamaica or some beach somewhere very far away, but for just a day. That's what I wanted to do, but I didn't want to go then, but found out I could save it until a more opportune time. As I prepared to finally go, I had to get John to unlock this equipment closet that had my special beach volleyball in it so I could use it to play on the beach. He opened it for me, and it was full of stuff, and my volleyball was all the way in the back. So I went in, searching for my ball, and John locked me in and trapped me inside, and after awhile of trying to get out and him laughing at me, I figured I would just entertain myself with all the stuff in the closet until he decided to stop being a jerk. Eventually, he got tired of me making my own fun and ending his game, so he let me out, and I'm pretty sure I did something dumb like stick my tongue out at him.
