I didn't sleep very well (again) last night. I'm sure the pregnancy can be blamed, but still... I thought I'd get my strange dream(s) posted...
I woke up several times and so waking became part of the dream, too...
Elmo & I were sleeping next to each other (exactly as we actually were), but we were inside a large cave... not sure if we were on our bed or just cave floor. Across the room (past our feet) was the man that played Steven Keaton on Family Ties. He was sleeping, too... just behind some grouping of stalagmites. I woke, sat up slightly, and looked over toward him and saw a large dog run off to my left from there. I worried about his wellbeing as this large dog had just come from where he was sleeping. I was trying to ask if he was alright. The dog(s) came back a few times and I shooed them away with a small rubber flogger (which I bought last Saturday). The dog was approaching me now, but was easily scared off. Suddenly the dog coming to bother me was Choopy
(Veronica's dog - it still lives at the house with her). I started shooing him away, but then realized he was simply begging to go outside. I finally got up to take him out, fumbling around about how I should grab clothes or at least a robe. I noticed he was about to just shit the floor, so I rushed him to the front door of the apartment (that's right - no more cave) and let him out. He went right down the stairs to the grass. A bag lady was walking around the corner with a grocery basket of stuff (not groceries). I worried that Choopy might not come back after he crapped, but as soon as he was done I praised him and called to him and he came right back up the stairs.
Elmo & I woke and I told him about part of the dream. He said the actor's name (that played Steven Keaton) was Texas something. sidenote: In my dream he was right, though it was actually Michael Gross. Gross also played in the Tremors series of movies, which we watched together a month or two ago.
I said I think Texas died recently. I seemed to recall seeing it posted here or somewhere.
All through the night, as I woke (I think), I had one line of a song running through my head over and over again. It continued until we listened to the radio on the way to work. The song line was "I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you" from the AT&T commercial. It was just the one line, though slight variations (read: wrong versions) of it.
Then Elmo and I actually
woke up. I told him about the dream on the way to work. He was surprised at the amount of detail I recalled. I think it helped that I kept actually
waking up, and that I was telling the tale so early in the morning.
I always dream strange things. This one was just... somehow extra weird because I dreamt I kept waking and I really kept waking. Bizarre how it all blurred together.
