I often have vivid dreams that I can recall very easily. Most of the time they are not frightening dreams, just "off the wall" in nature. Like last night I had a dream that my son got into my aunt's cupboards and took a bunch of snacks, my Dad told me about it and "instructed" me to scold him for it, after which I walked around town dragging him by the arm trying to find an old abandoned house where I could spank him and then get back to the rest of my family.
None of these dreams ever make sense! First off, the dream took place in the town and house in which my Grandma and Grandpa lived which is not the same town that this particular aunt lives in. Second, if my son stole some snacks out of her cupboards the last thing she or my Dad would expect me to do is spank him for it. Lastly, I've been wheelchair bound for 13 years and yet in every single dream I can remember, I'm walking.
So what do you make of all this, especially the walking part? Like I said, most of my dreams are off-the-wall scenarios and nothing ever scary. A couple nights ago I dreamt that my kids' daycare lady was divorcing her husband. There's been no such talk that I've heard so far and from what I can tell their marriage is fine. Strange!
I still recall a dream I had back in high school regarding my science class. We were to collect rocks around our yards/through town and were expected to find X-number of types of rocks. In my dream, I came to school with my rock collection and had all the rocks labeled on index cards but it turns out that a lot of them were mislabeled, so the teacher started throwing the rocks at me and I ran screaming down the halls of the school. First off, I never really enjoyed science class but I was never afraid of this particular teacher. I was, however, worked up about getting things right so I could pass the class.
Maybe I'm just not getting enough sleep!
