    In this mornings dream I was given a football and told I needed to punt it. I walk into a stadium full of people waiting for the punt. I am thinking how can I do this, I have never punted a football, this is crazy, what am I going to do?
    During the kick my foot passed through the football as if it were an image and not a real football which really confused me as it happened.
    I woke up confused, not so different than any other day.

    My dreams have been a heavy rotation of my mom (who passed away this January), my old classmate (who passed away this April), or dreams where I am famous for doing something, (winning a race/game, marrying the hot girl, etc.)

    Strangest one was the Dream of my classmate. I dreamed that we were high school again and both of us are running on the track and I was better than her. The classmate mentioned was a damn good athlete is real life...played D1 basketball and track. Our girls' track team finished second in state her senior year...and she was our only school representative.

    We talked about our lives and 5 he good times we had. As I went to AK her why she died, she just sped off. As I stop and watch her go, I hear her laughter go fainter and fainter.

    In high school we had a mutual respect for each.other but it never went farther than that. The thought of our best athlete dating me, a bookworm who could trip over a painted line. It would be rocking the wchool foundation to the core. But boy I think of the fun we could have had.

    Hopefully this won't be deemed political, but I always felt comforted by the idea of MAD and our nuclear deterrent, so I never had fears about that.

    I did have a recurring dream when I was a child of being on an abandoned house boat and being chased by someone trying to kill me and stepping on a rusty nail and trying to run with the nail in my foot and then I would always wake up.

    One of the most vivid adult dreams I can remember was after 9/11, the actual event didn't frighten me at all considering the odds of being involved in a hijacking or terrorist attack less than being struck by lighting, but I had a dream that terrorists hijacked a plane I was on and crashed it into a building. Nothing unique about that scenario obviously, but it was so freaking realistic and vivid, possibly the most realistic and terrifying dream I ever had.

    Then there was the one in college with the two coeds from one of my classes, that was the funnest dream I can still clearly remember but I won't go into details as this is a family site.

    In general not too many other ones stand out over the years.

    Last night Jamski and Ben Affleck took me around to all their favorite hole in the wall dining spots. But they ordered for me and I didn't like anything. At the end of the evening they got enormous fudgecycles and a got a small cone that was made of cotton candy.

    Restless Morning...

    #1.) I was back at my place of employment and every customer was a woman with a purse dog. One of the women was complaining that she could not concentrate at home because her husband kept interrupting her, but her dog barked continuously.

    #2.) I stopped my car at a crosswalk in which all the people were standing but not moving despite no traffic to hinder them. When I rolled down the window and yelled at them to move, they proceeded to walk up the street and continue to block traffic.

    #3.) While driving I passed a short haired brunette who was running in the street while a white BMW followed her. Thinking she might be in trouble I hung a U-turn, but she disappeared and a gorgeous blonde, who did not have a purse dog, was strolling serenely, and she turned to me and smiled.

    I think I dreamed I kept forgetting things but I'm not sure.

    That's kind of the way a lot of my dreams go. I think.

    I used to have the truck driving dream. I was always eastbound coming in to either Kansas City or St. Louis but I wasn't sure which and I couldn't remember where I was supposed to be taking the load. Then I realized I was not driving the truck I had started out with and it was somewhere in either Texas or Oklahoma and I was pretty sure I'd left it running and I was trying to figure out how to get back to it. I could never remember how it came out.

    Yes, and the streak left on the cycling shorts can be a nightmare.

    I often have ones where I'm being attacked or our house is being broken into and I'll shoot the person point blank in the face and it has no effect.

    I also have a reoccurring one since I was little. I'm able to swing around the outside of a large house. I'm able to see a floor that was completely burned. The floor isn't visible from the inside. I seem to be the only person that can see it. Then somehow I always end up in the attic. Everything is in black and white. I'm speeding through a forest trying to not hit the trees. The whole house is very haunted too. I really dislike that dream.

    I was at the home of my ex-wife's parents.
    We decided it would make a great floating home, and so we began cutting it apart with chain saws.
    The guy supervising the job was a race horse owner I know. The Nasty Grandchildren were visiting.
    They needed to bathe but the water was turned off. So I brought them 5 gallon buckets of cold water.

    Last night I had the strangest dream. (But Ed Mcurdy and Joan Baez were not in it)

    mrs goner and i were at an outdoor charity fundraiser having a beer in a tiki hut bar. Tom Brady was leaving from working behind the bar. He stopped and talked with us and we had a great time and he was just a super nice guy so we all left and I drove him to Road America and we watched some racing. I was surprised at what a nice guy he was and mrs goner and I talked about it later.
    Jump to the next week and we are walking around a downtown city. Tom Brady walks by and we chat up again, he is glad to see us and we have another nice time together. What a genuine nice guy we remarked again later in the dream.

    That was a weird one.

    That is definitely weird. But Tom is a very nice guy by all accounts. It’s his fans that drive people crazy.

    I have a good reason why i don't paint exteriors anymore. I retired the 32 and 40 foot ladders. I swear Gods finger kept me from falling from the peak of a roof one day. The dream machine fired up after that.

    Falling from a tremendous height, It's the sound of my coconut cracking that snapped me awake. Anytime i tried climbing after that, all i could hear was the sound of my coconut cracking on the sidewalk. Then one day I froze while only 20 feet up on the corner of a house. I got my ass down and have never gone back up. Climbing is a numbers game. Do it long enough, eventually a ladder will kick out from under you. That's happened twice, and I walked away. I knew in the back of my mind, #3 won't be so lucky. I chose to listen to my dream.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one wandering the halls of my high school in my underwear trying to find my classroom on final exam day. I skipped the whole year too but showed up for exams.

    I dreamed I was on the balcony of my house watching a man speak but I cannot tell you who it was because of the strict rules regarding names of anyone in politics---but I woke up quickly.

    Mentioning a politician is overrated = political comment

    Mentioning a politician serenaded you in a dream is not political

    Pretty simple.

    I once dreamed that there was a mail-order bakery that had become extremely trendy and I was one of the few people in the world who realized it was a front for terrorists, meaning that I was drafted into a spy effort to take the bakery down. I ended up in Germany at a soccer game where I had to move to seats behind the goal from sideline seats due to a leak flooding the sideline grandstand. I then walked into a racing memorabilia shop where I was to receive my instructions. While waiting, I noticed they had a few NASCAR items, but the relative pricing seemed off (backmarkers' stuff selling for more than star driver memorabilia). I asked the owner and it turned out I was in a remote part of Germany where the only stock car racing they had seen were a couple of VHS tapes of late model races won by Steadman Marlin, who they considered the greatest NASCAR driver of all time.

    The idea of Steadman Marlin being the greatest NASCAR driver of all time was so ridiculous, it jolted me awake immediately.

    Sonny Bono has been (respectfully) passed away long enough that you can reference him at TF without fear of retribution. I asked the admins earlier this year. You never know.

    I was dumping off a pickup loaded with black garbage bags at a school recycling center. One of the students there asked me if there were any liquids in the bags. Then he began tearing them open. When I asked him to stop he began spraying me with a bottle of 409. Angry, I went for a walk downtown to clear my head. I decided to return to the school, but as I did each intersection and block turned into an English town setting and suddenly I was in a queue for a bus. Once on board I explained to my fellow passengers that they were just characters in my dream and that I needed to get to London so I could fly home. But I never made it.

    Happy 420 Day numb.



    I have been dreaming a lot in the last few weeks, something that was rare for years.
    I recently dreamed my phone outputted other people's random phone calls over the speaker, I could not turn it off, disconnect, interrupt or silence the phone conversations, they just kept going from one conversation to another. It was maddening to be in that dream.
