Not again…

Standard

I had another one of those dreams in which I’m a superhero, er…mom.

Do you recall my post, “Now this is just pathetic” in which I heroically clean my kids’ closet and under their dressers? Well, my ever-exciting subconscious was at it again last night. But it did get a little better. There was a high-speed chase, at least.

It started out with my kids scoring an 11 out of 12 on a test rigged for students to score, at best, a 10 out of 12.

So then my children were kidnapped as punishment. Here’s where the high-speed chase came in, which lasted about two blocks.

On a motorcycle (some cool points!) I chased down the van carrying my children. Somehow when I arrived, the kids were gone, but the driver was still around. I grabbed her (forcefully, thankyouverymuch) by her collar and demanded to know what had become of my children.

For example… only evil. [From Charles Reed Bishop Learning Center]

“Couplets,” she sputtered.

“Couplets?”

She nodded. “Two rhyming lines of poet–”

“I know what couplets are! What does that have to do with my kids?!”

“They’re being forced to memorize them.”

I shrugged and shook my head.

“They’re filled with… with… incorrect information!”

I pushed her back, horrified. “Noooooooo!!!”

That’s when I woke up. The thought of my children’s brains being polluted with sing-songy false information was apparently too much for my subconscious to handle.

Have I mentioned that I need to get out more?

What do you dream about? Something far more exciting and less maternal, I hope.

  1. I knew I should’ve written down those weird dreams. Never know when they’ll come in handy. I’ve had various weird ones, everything from being chased by vampires into the attic of an old school (1930s vintage–don’t ask) to hovering by a second-story window in a Sopwith Camel (painted to match the Red Baron’s colors) to playing 500 with various celebrities (and yes, they were all hunks, and no, I don’t remember which ones) to driving off a mountain road off a cliff and actually feeling that weightlessness before the hard stop at the end.

    On second thought, maybe I won’t go to sleep tonight…

    • Ha! And omg, I just remembered. Another dream was me with two adorable baby tiger kittens who let me hold them and love on them and they weren’t mean or vicious at all.
      Wow. I really am pathetic.
      But of course they were tigers b/c tigers are orange. It was quite a happy dream, though.
      I gotta get me a kitten.

  2. Haha! I have crazy dreams all the time. Just the other night I had a dream where I was in a race inside a huge mansion, but I lost because my staircase tuned on its side so I couldn’t run up it!
