A-Z Challenge, post 4, D – I know in the movie The Ref Denis Leary says people should stop talking about their dreams, because who really cares…but holy moly, the other morning was a doozy. So I am sharing. Hahah, sorry Denis.
I was in my house when a tiger started chasing me (just go with it). So like any normal person (ha!) I started moving through the house closing doors behind me. Unfortunately, most of the doors were flimsy and didn’t go all the way to the ground so he could stalk right under them, but for some reason I continued trying to close them. He finally got really close with his mouth wide open when I threw a couple of pencils down his throat. While he was busy trying to cough them up I locked him in a room with a real door. (it was scary being armed only with a pencil while staring down the jaws of a tiger I tell you!) I ran through the house and noticed all the claw marks on the doors and places he jumped while chasing me. Eeek.
He got out of the room and my horse(?) and my black lab mix dog(?) started trying to draw him away from me and outside. The tiger shifted into a horse as well and bit my horse on the back. He was going to eat him, which was a weird scene until I then drew his attention away, got him close and then stabbed him in the eyes with more pencils (I seemed to have an unending supply). I was crying and telling him I was sorry, I didn’t want to kill him, but he wouldn’t stop! So I was really shoving those pencils into head, trying to pierce his brain. It was yucky, I remember the resistance and the goo.
Then I woke up.
So, now I am sort of worried the dream police will find my murder of the horse/tiger unjustified. Will I get proper representation? Will the judge be similar to the Queen of Hearts? Because it really felt like I was in wonderland or an MC Escher painting with that house and those doors.
I am not a writer, am I allowed the use pencils to kill the things in my dreams? Should I not bore people with my dreams? 🙂 What are your thoughts?
