The naked one: ha, these have been the most enduring dreams. I first recall having them in my early teens. The premise is very simple, I don’t usually have clothes at my disposal. A couple common varieties include climbing out of a pool naked, having an important meeting naked, or just unable to locate clothes while others kind of giggle and point. In these dreams I’m frantically looking for something to cover up. Damn that chlorine addiction of mine.
The running one: I’m typically running my normal pace, but for whatever reason I can’t seem to pick up the speed. Try as I might, I’m unable to go any faster. Life seems to pass me by in slow motion during these dreams and usually involves me running uphill, fully clothed.
The car with horrible brakes one: I’m the driver of an out of control car with poor brakes. I apply pressure to the brakes and I can’t get the car to slow down as it should in real life. Eventually it comes to a stop, but just before I narrowly miss killing someone or something… Sasquatch.
The missing car one: brand spanking new dream. I had this dream over the weekend and it drove me nuts. My car(s) was stolen three times from the exact same spot. Apparently I replaced the car each time and it would promptly get stolen. My first car was a Honda Accord and it was stolen once and vandalized many times which likely explains this dream.
The sibling one: this is a less frequent dream than I would like. Usually it consists of a very realistic dream about one of my siblings that has passed away. In the dream they don’t feel like they’ve been gone. It’s more like they’ve disappeared for a bit and then come back. I haven’t had one of these in quite some time, but I like them very much. Most of the times this dream is includes a trip up a snow covered windy trail to the summit of a mountain.
The college final is tomorrow one: yeah, this dream is pretty obvious what it’s about. Typically it’s a dream I have about missing a course all quarter/semester long and learning I have a final exam tomorrow. The class tends to be an English or math class which also comes as no surprise since I had to pass a calculus class before I graduated from college.
The monsters are chasing me one: this childhood dream haunted me like nothing else could. Maybe I read Where the Wild Things Are too often as a child. I remember getting chased by monsters as I took the back trails from my house to the local grocery store. I was always somehow able to outrun these colorful furry monsters.
The professional athlete one: I’m at the plate in the 9th innning of the World Series. I’m usually playing for the Red Sox in this dream and my fame is through the roof. Unfortunately, this dream never plays itself out. I wake up before the outcome has a chance to occur. Other variations include me as a soccer player or a swimmer on the US Olympic team.
I know there’s much interpretation one can do about these dreams, but I just enjoy them for what they are… silly stories that don’t usually make much sense. Analyze them if you want, but be warned naked retaliation could be in order.
