File under weird

As my wife slowly made her way to the bathroom a few minutes ago, she confessed that she had a rather odd dream at some point during the night. Hers boiled down to the fact that she gave birth to a 12lb. 8oz. baby. Uncomfortable indeed.

I don't know where that places two of my more memorably odd dreams but they all qualify as strange. If you care, my most memorably messed up dreams were me being chased by a furnace (I think that this one was fever-induced) and the second was me being chased by a roast beef sandwich from Hardee's.

But none of these compare to one which a co-worker shared recently about her ex. His recurring dream was of him drowning in a bowl of noodles.

But I have a feeling that others have some even more bizarre dreams. So 'fess up, what's you most bizarre dream?

I used to have a recurring nightmare about a man chasing me. Under several different circumstances. I would usually wind up trapped by him and would hit him on the head repeatedly with very heavy objects. It would never stop him. Wouldn't even slow him down.

After I got divorced, I never had this nightmare again.

The strangest dream (on paper) that I've had was when I was pregnant with my youngest. I dreamt I had kittens. I think there were five of them. But they wanted to go live with a fish in the pond. So I let them. And every one in awhile, I would visit them. They would come to the surface and tell me how they were doing. It was a happy dream. But I always felt that pang over the loss of my children (kittens).

I think my most bizarre dream happened when I was prego. For some reason I was only able to give birth to one of my twins. For days later (or until I woke up) I walked around with 1/2 a pregnant belly . One side was huge and the other side was completely flat. The strangest thing was that no one seemed to thing it was out of the ordinary. Not even me.

I often have dreams where I am running from lightning or being battered about on the ocean in a storm trying not to be overcome by the waves.

One frequently-recurring dreams would be me driving and suddenly in front of me the road loops like a roller coaster. I would freak out thinking how am I going to drive my car up this loop and how is everyone else doing it? I wrote about it on my blog:

When I was a kid I would dream of being trapped in the back of a car driving itself, parents gone and me abandoned. That one sucked.

Ijust had it last night. I was signed up to teach Spanish, and I kept saying,"But I don't even speak Spanish, how can I teach it?"

My dream last night consisted of visiting a family who was caring for a foster child. He was about ten years old. The story got quite involved, actually. Weirdest part is that I wound up teaching the boy to drive a car. Now why would I do that?

My dreams seem to always involve me being someone in public and suddenly realizing I'm in my underwear. What is it with that tired old stereotypical dream anyway? What is that supposed to mean?

I love to analyze people's dreams.

The weirdest dream I ever had was when I was three and I lived in Texas. I dreamed everything I touched turned into giant easter eggs with a cartoon picture of whatever it was that I was touching on the egg. Like I remember I touched the TV and it turned into a giant easter egg with a cartoon TV on it. It was so weird.

Once, when I was about 5, I had a fever- which meant I spent the night on the downstairs couch, closer to parents bedroom. I swore I looked outside our city house and saw a burned down forest, with Smokey the Bear coming slowly towards me. That bear was pissed, and he thought I started the fire...

That can be repeated in public, I assume you mean.:)

I have this one every time we get a different car: I'd hear it crying at night, and I'd go out to see what was wrong. It always said it was scared, so I'd sit in a chair, and rock it to sleep. Don't ask me how.:)
