Woke up from a not-so-sweet dream this morning at 7:00am when my sweetie called to “rescue me” from it.
I was in a house, not ours, upstairs in a creepy, dilapidated bedroom/attic space in a bed but waking up. My suitcase was on the floor and I looked over at it and noticed a creepy crawly going underneath it. Looked like a cockroach which I cannot tolerate at all! Worst bug ever. I screamed and ran into the bathroom. Next thing I knew I was looking up into the mirror and it felt so surreal, as if I’d just woken up to find myself there in the bathroom. I looked over and the door had been shut, which I did not do. When I tried to open it, I found it had been locked, but I could find no lock on the door anywhere! Panicking, I started pounding on the door and screaming. It suddenly opened. I was so scared, so I “got big” like they tell you to do if you’re confronted by an angry wild animal. I put my hands up in the air over my head and made claws with them, and started roaring (haha!) and running around the house like a maniac to try to frighten away who/whatever was after me.
I suddenly found myself upstairs in the attic bed again, studying my suitcase for movement. My husband was now in the room and I asked him how and why, because he was supposed to be away on a work project. He told me he just wanted to sleep for a while (so typical of him — hehe). I insisted he check the suitcase for cockroaches first and then seal it up tight, which he started to do, then made this weird hissing sound. I told him to stop! I asked him why he made that awful sound and he said it called to the cockroaches!? EWW! Then there was loud dolby-surround hissing all around us! He said, “Do you hear that,” with huge eyes, and then ran out of the room without me. I screamed, “WAIT!” but he was gone and I was trapped inside the room, pounding on the door and crying.
Not a good dream at all… I was glad he woke me up from it — and to open my eyes to three cats sitting on the bed and staring at me like I was the most interesting thing they’d seen in years. I guess this is what I get for writing what I do? Or for watching horror movies alone at night. Whatever the case, goodbye to that dream forever. *shudder*
