I know that nobody really finds anybody else’s dreams interesting, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop sharing! 

Tthe other night I dreamt that the gym had some newfangled sort of equipment to help people learn to run with a better stride and with lighter feet.  Naturally Mike decided to make me use this equipment, and naturally I didn’t understand what I was supposed to do.  He got more and more frustrated, reiterating the same instructions until he lost his temper and starting yelling at me. 


I told him the dream and he said, that sounds about right.

Last night I had a dream in which Zach Galifianakis thought we were best friends, and everything I tried to do, he was right there running after me.  By the end of the dream I was running around a parking lot in the rain, frantically trying to find my car and drive away before he caught up to me.  I woke up then, and was afraid to go back to sleep for fear I would reenter the dream.  I wasn’t frightened, just REALLY annoyed.


(source)  I’m sure he’s a great guy in real life, but we are not best friends.

Every since I was a little girl I remember sharing my dreams.  My mom, Leslie, and I love sharing our dreams.  (Not our hopes, just our dreams).  I am good at remembering them, and I’ve had some really funny ones over the years.  I’m sure everybody has, even though I know some people (Chris, for instance) remember less of their dreams. 

I don’t take much stock in the whole "what does my dream mean" question though.  I generally assume dreams are random bits of things you’ve experienced, read, seen on tv, thought about, etc, and there isn’t a real deeper meaning (unless you want there to be, in which case, well, they are YOUR dreams).

My two dreams are easy to explain: 

Mike DOES get frustrated sometimes when I can’t do something right.  He’s never yelled, but other people have yelled at me, so I know that feeling.  He does want me to improve my running stride, plus recently we had another discussion about it (airborne running, if you recall.)

The other dream:  Well, Zach Galifianakis has been all over the entertainment news because of the upcoming Hangover Part II movie.  That’s probably all there is to that.  Or secretly I harbor a gigantic crush on him?  I suppose the dream is open to interpretation 😉

Do you like sharing your dreams?  Any funny ones you’ve had recently?  Leave a comment!
