These dreams (or, a little therapy)

So, many of you may realize that I am a little bit on the weird side. I like math, I read encyclopedias (don't let me get started on Wikipedia, or I'll never get off), I look for new words and try to use them, I talk about rheology, etc. Well, lately my brain has been vividly releasing the more peculiar of the random firings of neurons in the old gray cells. I've had some doozies of some dreams.

In the spirit of getting things off my chest, while simultaneously giving you something to laugh at me about, I'll share. Aren't you the lucky ones!

So, here is one of the more traumatic of my recent dreams. The Euphrony family is driving in the euphony-mobile (a lovely minivan, if you must know). We pull up to a shopping mall of some kind, and we're near the doors - still in the car. I start getting everyone out of the car when suddenly a couple of guys jump out. One is unarmed but the other is holding a knife on me and shows me a gun in his coat. (You know, like all the bad guys do in the movies.) They proceed to rob us and then let us go. I get back in the car and drive the family around (I don't know where) and we end up back at the crime scene, talking with the police. I'm trying to explain that we were robbed but they don't know what to think; you see, the thieves didn't take everything we had. They left some money in my wallet, but took the big bills. They took my camera but left the telephoto lens. They took some things, but left enough that the cops don't think we were robbed. I look up and the next thing I know I see the guy who had the knife and gun walking out of the mall, like nothing had happened. I start yelling to the cops that that's the guy, but they look at me like I'm crazy or accusing the Pope of taking candy from a baby. Then I wake up.

So, what do you think? Am I loony? Have you had dreams like this? Hey, at least I didn't get stabbed (that was in a dream two weeks ago).

Next time, I'll share one of my favorite childhood dreams. If you care. (Hint, it involves a popular fairy tale.)

You're not loony, but I have to wonder...have the Euphrony's been having dinner with Groves recently?

Dude, quit watching movies and crime scene shows before bed. Try a good "How I Met Your Mother" or "Two and a Half Men"

Oh, and lay off the crazy drink, Loon!

JSue, thank you very much for your support. I'll be sending a a case of crazy juice (it's from a fruit, you know) over for your hubby. I'm sure HotRod will love it! Oh, and I don't watch crime shows - too boring and monotonous.

Cristy, I guess I missed the connection. And a lot of people wonder about me.

Read #4 for the connection. (Sorry you missed the connection...I thought you read Shaun's blog.)

It's interesting to see if you remember your childhood as we do.

Okay, Cristy, I read that and completely forgot that part about dream terrorists. I've been rather busy since starting my new job, and blogging time has been compressed.

JSue said...

I am cracking up...as soon as I hit enter, I read my comment and thought "UGH! I meant to write juice" No kidding!

Hot Rod would LOVE some crazy juice, just make sure it's a good flavor. Oh, and no caffeine, that'll keep him up.

Yes, I have been having some odd dreams. Just in the past 2 weeks. Although it has to do with folks at our church so I won't post details here.

Anyway, I hate the dream that you have when you need to scream but you can't. That one really freaks me out.

Do you know what your dream means? They say dreams mean something =0).......

Sounds like you've been struggling with credibility issues lately, whether you feel like you are right and people don't trust your judgment yet, or that you honestly are worried that people won't believe you or trust your judgment. Whatever it is, the credibility issues effects your family in some way or another.

Also, possibly that you feel like you've been given the short end of the stick in some way... job, church...

(Just off the top of my head...)
