Ever wake up from a crazy dream and the first thing that comes to mind is "what in the hell was that?" Well, that's exactly what went through my mind at 2:33 this morning. That and 'man I could really go for some raisinets'.
I'm not sure if it's just my (crazy) family but we're huge believers in dreams having meanings. This especially being true after 27+ years ago my mom mentioned to my grandmother that she dreamed of a cow giving birth. My little hispanic grandmother then went on a tantrum screaming "Ay dios mio...estas embarazada! Llame al medico ahora mismo!!!" For my non-hispanic, and who am I kidding, probably my hispanic friends who can't read MY version of espanol...my adorable little grandma was screaming that my Mommy, the lady who thought she'd never be able to have another baby, was pregnant. And sure enough, a few pregnancy tests and a doctor appointment later, my beautiful Mommy was pregnant with what she likes to call her "miracle baby". (In case you didn't put it together- I'm the miracle baby.)
So clearly, I am a firm believer that dreams have meaning. Anywho, back to business....my dream was just freaking strange. Here is the condensed version: I was being chased through some foreign city, one with grimey looking people. My instincts led me into a random house which ended up being my demise because the owners proved to be quite the set of assholes. After they barricaded me in their kitchen they got the attention of the person chasing me. Now here's where my confusion comes in- I was being chased by a ninja. I'm talking all black clothes, face-covered, sword throwing ninja. Anyone who knows me knows I'm 105 pounds soaking wet and the biggest wimp. Needless to say, I immediately felt defeated. Suddenly all 'Life of Pi' like, a tiger prances in (yes, prances) and saves my life. As the evening chill rolls in and the sun sets over the cascading mountains we rode off into the grimey city together and bada boom bada bing- I'm awake.
Now how in the hell do you decipher that? Anyone with a dream book ready to dissect this REM madness?
