Dream a little dream with me

I had a very odd dream last night. I have odd dreams quite often, but last night was a little odder than most.

It started out with one of my guy friends (GF) telling me that he was leaving. I was very upset (but kept up a happy face) and invited him over for supper. I left the place I was at (a theater of some sort) and rode a bicycle home. (Ha! As if.) I was riding to our old house in town and I almost skidded on some loose gravel. The house looked exactly like our old house from the outside except it didn't have the porch (It looks better that way.) When I pulled up in the driveway, GF was pulling up on his bicycle too. Weird thing was, he was wearing a suit. (The first time I ever saw him in real life, he was wearing a suit. I haven't seen him in one since.) I could tell that he had been crying and I reached up to wipe a tear and he pulled back. I asked what was wrong, but I don't remember what he said. I stepped up on the first step going into the house, turned around and hugged him and told him that it wasnt' going to be the same around here without him. We went into the house and I could hear a dog yapping. I looked out the window and my mom's old dog, Squeaky, was out back. (Squeaky has been dead for years.) I walked down the hall to the sliding door to take some food out to her and the door was partway open. The screen was shut. I was wondering why the door was open when no one was home and then I noticed my Granny was sleeping in the bedroom. (Granny has also been gone for years.) She woke up and started talking to me and I was so glad to be talking to her. I told her GF had came over to have supper with us. I fed Squeaky some dog food and then went down to the kitchen to make goulash. One of my female co-workers and her sister were already in the kitchen and we started putting together some goulash and laughing and having a grand old time.

Then I woke up.

I was enjoying the dream cause it ended happy, but then I started thinking about stuff. GF leaving. Crying. Wearing suit. Dead dog. Dead Granny. It started creeping me out. Is my GF gonna die? Was he wearing the suit for his funeral? Were the dead people there to take him? Why was I making goulash? I've never made goulash in my life. Why my old house? GF has never even been to my old house. How would he know how to get there? Why the co-worker? And her sister? I've only seen her sister a couple of times in my life.

Analyze...

  1. Analysis:
    You feel that something comfortable in your life is about to change. I can't say what it is but it's something rather significant. Your dream is reminding you that those comfortable things in your life that have changed - moving from your old house, losing your grandmother, and losing Squeaky - did not change you and you are still happy, even though you miss those things. The goulash that you've never made may be the anticipation of something new.

    Of course, I'm probably just talking $hit off the top of my head.

  2. Ok, I've given this quite a bit of thought and I think I've come up with an answer for you. You ate too much goulash and went to bed with heartburn.

  3. Dreams are so messed up, huh?! I try not to think to much about them, because I bet they are just random thoughts in your mind. Hey, I could be wrong, but when I was 6, I dreamed that a shark bit my leg off and I still remember it...... Hmmm, maybe I should be careful on my cruise next week.
