First of all, I believe if you’re going to describe a dream you had to someone, you need to keep a twitter length story. Like “I had a dream. There was a talking potato and it was running around on fire.” Any longer and odds are you are going to start boring people.
That said, I’m going to talk about some dreams I’ve had. Every now and then I go through stages where I dream about my day job. Nothing interesting happens in these dreams, I just dream I’m there at work and doing what I do whenever I turn up in the day. It bugs the hell out of me, because so far HR has refused all of my request for overtime that I put for these dream shifts.
I also go through stages, when I’ve been overdoing it a little, where I dream of needing sleep. This usually involves my dreamself, not being able to focus, falling over and generally looking for a place to go to sleep. The main problems with these dreams is they are so boring that they threaten to push me from sleep into a coma.
A few weeks ago my subconscious, in an obvious assault on my conscious mind took this a step further. It combined the two. I had nights in a row where I was dreaming that I was at my job, being assigned work. Each of these assignments when I look at them was ‘sleep.’ I can’t tell you how confusing it is, when you get 6 or 7 hours dreaming of being at work but needing sleep, being woken up by your alarm clock so you can go to work.
I’m not sure what the point of all this is, other than my subconscious is a bastard.
Anyway, a cartoon self-portrait of me in this state to share before I go an have an early night….
