Making Dreams Come True Since 1977

Okay, not really.  I'm still working on that "winning the lottery" one. 

When I was a kid, we had a small pond in our backyard with little fish in it.  I dreamt (dreamed?) once when I was really little that I almost drowned in that pond.  It felt like a pretty vivid dream, and I always remembered having had the dream, even if I didn't actually remember any details.  One day when I was much older (possibly high school), I happened to mention the dream in front of my mom.  She looked at me like I had lost my marbles and said, "That wasn't a dream.  You really DID almost drown in that pond!"

So I'm waiting for the night I dream about winning the lottery, so I can wake up the next morning and BAM!  Instant multi-millionaire.


  1. That's horrible about the drowning dream. Do you have a hard time with water today? How old were you?

    I dreamt once that I cut my chin open as a kid and had to get stitches. There is a scar there today but I keep forgetting to ask my mom if it really was a dream or not.

    I did have a lotto-winning dream. It was so realistic that when I woke up I was *shocked* that it hadn't actually happened. So disappointing!!

  2. No problems with water at all. In fact I LOVE water. There weren't any emotions involved with remembering the "dream". It was just like thinking I'd had a dream about eating cereal for breakfast. Which makes it even more surprising that I don't have a problem with water! What can I say, I'm resilient. :)

  3. Hey, if that theory holds true, Sandra Bullock should be showing up at my doorstep any day now.

  4. Hey, good luck with that one, Knucklehead! I'm still waiting for my favorite band to finally decide I'd be awesome to hang out with and show up to ask me to tour with them.
