167: Weird Dreams

I've been having some weird dreams lately.  Last night, and I'm blaming all the Thanksgiving food I had, I had the weirdest dreams where I was in the audience of Oprah.  Oprah was doing a question and answer segment on her show and everytime she went to someone else, she ended up hitting them.  Not lightly or by accident either.  One woman complained and Oprah just admitted it but blamed the woman she hit.  I don't know if Oprah really acts like this but I wouldn't be surprised if she did.  I don't know what happened to the dream because then I was climbing up onto this cement stage-type thing high up above the audience.  It was very dangerous because the thing had no railing and seemed to getting higher with every second.  Then someone threw open a door and knocked me over the edge and so there I was hanging onto the edge of the cement stage thing for dear life.  Finally I was just able to wake myself up and then drift back off to sleep.

After I fell back to sleep, the next dream was just weird.  My son and I worked in the same place (and he could drive) and this girl I used to work with on second shift was in it and some gas station that I always seem to dream about was there.  The gas station was huge but run by women who had tattoos all around their bodies and white tanktops and braided hair.  It was kind of scary.  Anyway, I'm not sure what that dream was about either but at least I wasn't clinging for my life as in the previous dream.

I also had another dream which I can't remember.  When I was sick this past summer, I kept having the same recurring dream.  I can't remember what it was now but it kept waking me up.  Then when I would finally get to back to sleep I would immediately go back into that dream waking me up again in about fifteen minutes.  It was a very long night.
