I have lots of dreams (that I remember). Many of them are quite weird, although I have my fair share of boring dreams. I often remember details... lots of details. My husband gets easily bored when I share all the details, but I am a little amazed that I remember so much. I thought I would share a recent dream I had that involved a couple people I work with.
My husband and I moved to Kansas City, MO for my job. It appeared we were taking over a house from another employee and her husband who were moving back to MN. However, as the dream progressed it looked like they were going to stay with us a while before going back. We arrived at the back of the house which looked like it was built around 1920. It was a two story dark brick house with a concrete driveway, sidewalk and patio surrounded by green grass. On the stairs to the house and to the patio was a stainless steel gas grill. As we stood there my husband decided that we needed to redo the backyard and showed me a picture he Googled as we were standing there. It looked exactly like the backyard that was already there.
As we entered the house we noticed the inside looked more like a messy warehouse with a storefront window. We had sold all of our belongings thinking it would be easier to buy new ones in MO than to move them. Once we got there we discovered that another co-worker had left us a giant flat screen tv. We were ecstatic. I decided to write a thank you note and send it off to her. I scrounged around and found a large piece of cardboard shaped like a heart. And when I say large I mean it was about three feet across and two feet high. I started to write on it when I was called away. When I went back it was completed. The background was colored red and a big “Thank You” was written in the middle. I assumed it was my co-worker who was still living there that completed this. We sent it off and then decided to set up the TV. My co-worker and her husband had the tv across the street and were asking us if it was in a good spot. I couldn’t figure out why we were setting it up so far away when I noticed that it was a crappy, smaller, non-flat TV.In that case set it where ever you want.
We then went to bed which was slightly awkward since there were no walls in the house. We slept in a bed near the front window while our one year old daughter slept next to the bed on the ledge in front of the window. My co-worker and her husband went out to a movie, but appeared to come home before we were fully asleep as I recall hearing them come in and get settled in bed.
At some point we were attacked. I can’t remember exactly what happened (or why thins was happening), but I remember one of them commenting on my female sleeping co-worker. They left her and her husband alone, but came towards us. All of a sudden there was an army tank behind us that was shooting at the bad guys. Everything happened so fast. When it appeared that the danger was gone my husband and I got into the tank. He then tried to get frisky with me, but I had to remind him that there were like 8 military guys in the tank with us and nothing was going to happen! We then noticed that the bad guys were not gone. The tank suddenly shrunk down to a size that fit under a bed. I couldn’t figure out how I could still fit in the small tank, but there I was. As we were trying to be quiet we noticed a guy walking around the bed with a gun. He looked a little like this:
Yes, that is Kenny Johnson from The Shield and Son's of Anarchy and the infamous Dolph Lundgren.
Yup, this is where the dream ended… I was stuck, shrunk inside a tank, under a bed in Kansas City, MO waiting for Kenny/Dolph to find me.
