Huzzah! I won the Internet.
Last week, my buddy's wife asked if any of us remembered our dreams.
She and my wife launched into long and detailed descriptions of various dreams.
My buddy and I shrugged and said, "Nope."
I said I remembered dreams for about one minute after waking up, and then it was all gone, every last bit. For me, dreams are only recalled while they're still vivid during that sleeping-to-waking transition period.
She suggested I write down my dreams as soon as I awoke. She wanted to analyze them later.
I'm out of town traveling for work again this week and next, so I'm in a strange bed in a strange place. This led to a strange dream...
...I was sleeping fitfully; tossing and turning all night long. That's when I felt the bites in my backside. I thrashed around, and tried to beat off the badger biting my butt.
I awoke with a start, yelping aloud.
The badger was nowhere to be found, having already made good his escape...
My buddy's wife insists badgers are a sign of good luck in dreams.
I have reason to doubt her findings.
What whacked-out dreams have you had? Have you ever been attacked by badgers biting your butt in a strange bed in a strange town? It's really only a matter of time, you know...
