For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, we are asked to write a post using the word “dream.”
I dream every night. In fact, I dream multiple times each night. I know this because I will typically wake up two or three times during the night. I wake up, look at the clock, and realize it’s way too early to get up. I will recall that I was dreaming right before I woke up and sometimes I’ll even remember what I was dreaming about.
There are times, after I wake up like this, that I hope, when I fall back to sleep, the dream will resume. There are other times, though, when I hope the dream won’t continue because it was not a very pleasant dream.
The dream I have right before I wake up for the final time, which is usually between 6:30 and 7:30 in the morning, is often very vivid. I think to myself that I need to remember the dream, but because what woke me, more often than not, is a pressing need to take a leak, I will head to the bathroom, take care of my pressing need, wash my face, and brush my teeth. If I’m lucky, I may be able to remember a few bits and pieces of the dream, but more often, by the time I leave the bathroom, it’s gone…poof!
I really wish someone would develop a technology that could record dreams so that you could view them like you can view TV shows you recorded on your DVR. Wouldn’t that be cool? Although I wouldn’t want my wife to watch a recording of that redhead I dreamed about last night.
