Most boring dream ever.

January 6, 2014


The scene: the narthex at an unfamiliar church. In the dream it’s Methodist, but it’s not the Seward Methodist church. There has been some event involving the CDC, but now it’s over. The narthex is decorated with little paper doo-dads that are pinned up to the ceiling and upper walls all around the room. Dozens of doo-dads, dozens of pins. Everyone is leaving, no one is offering to clean up. I am alone, just me and a ladder, moving slowly around the room unpinning little pieces of paper and sorting the different kids of straight pins. Move the ladder, unpin, sort. Move the ladder, unpin sort. Move the ladder, unpin, sort.

All. Around. The room. The whole dream.

Soooooooo boring. I want do overs.

    How long did it take you to make all those pins? Although it seemed like forever, I bet it took you longer to draw the dream than it did to dream it. I hope that tonight brings more excitement. 🙂

    completely unrelated to post (but easiest way to communicate with you): have you tried this heating contraption?

    It seems to me that you might have.

    Did you awaken tired? That dream sounds like alot of work. (But oh so colorful! Very pretty!)

    My dreams have been kind of mundane lately too. I’ve been thinking about trying to do some lucid dreaming. I tried it in college with limited success.
