The other night I had a dream that my mom picked me up from Jason’s. In my dream I was still asleep and awoke upon receiving her phone call. She told me that it was important that I go with her now. I didn’t have to get dressed (which doesn’t make any sense) cause I had clothes on already. I ran outside and there was my mom in a small car gray car that I didn’t recognize. The car was putting off an excessive amount of smoke from the exhaust. It must have been freezing because the heat was on in the car and my mom had it cranked up but I don’t remember the temperature.
After driving for a while she took me to the Holiday Inn Express and said that we had important business inside. I had no idea what she was talking about but I listened and followed her inside. When we got inside the Holiday Inn had turned into my aunt Traci’s old house on East Ellis..which is most ironically right next door to Jason’s.
Once I recognized the inside of the place I become overwhelmed with this welcoming feeling and realized that most of my intermediate family was there and a rather large amount of extended relatives as well.
For some reason or another I rushed to Cricket’s old bedroom and looked around. It was the same as it used to be. Only it seemed to glow more. I began to pee in a corner of her floor, (WTF?) as I was wiping the pee up with some old dingy just happened to be there towel Cricket walked in. She told me that there was a coffee stain there. I said oh. And asked her if she had any tampons.
She told me she would look for some but she was doubtful. She left me in her room. After a while of sitting and trying to understand exactly what was going on and why I had peed in her floor I left her room and walked across the hall to Connor’s old room.
It was exactly the same as I remembered before only whiter. Inside of his room where two cats playing together. I was watching them play and laughing until I realized that one of the cats had some plastic doll sized armor on it’s body and could not see because of it. I made it my mission to help the poor kitten out. I got the armor off and it look up at me with a thanks and went on playing with the other cat.
I left Connor’s room and walked out into what used to be the kitchen. Now it seemed like a mix between a bedroom, kitchen, and gathering area. It was confusing to say the least. Where the kitchen table used to be there was this huge rectangular shaped bed which looked more like an overgrown couch pillow and on it were two men. One of the men was fully clothed and ‘normal’ looking.
The other man was naked and fat and had very very tiny limps. And no genitals other than an asshole. He was also somewhat hairy…the kind of hairy that could never be attractive and the color of pinkish whitest newborn naked mole rat complexion that would scare anyone off.
I looked at both the men whom where looking at a photo album. The two men seemed to be discussing my family. With closer inspection I realized that I recognized the ‘normal’ man but I cannot remember who he was now. As soon as I recognized him in the dream he asked the ‘worm-man’ if he knew ‘Alexis’.
The worm-man said “Of course I know Alexis” with a big grin. This freaked me out. I left the two men and found my Aunt Traci. I asked her if she had any tampons. She said she would look but she was doubtful just as Cricket had said.
I told myself I didn’t have time to wait for them to find me tampons. I was going to have to convince my mother to leave. I told my mom that I had just started my period and that if I didn’t get any tampons soon that I would surely leak everywhere.
She sympathized with my predicament and said, “We will leave now but before we go to Wal-Mart let’s stop by McDonald’s because I am very hungry and I am craving a double cheeseburger.” I realized that I too was hungry and felt this was the only way I would ever get my tampon and so I agreed.
While inside McDonald’s my mom told me to order only one double cheeseburger meal. I thought to myself that is ridiculous but whatever. I ordered it and McDonald’s was a fairly high class restaurant in this dream. The meal came with curly fries (never gonna happen in real life) and a salad and of course a double cheeseburger only it had mac sauce on it. Which is awesome.
While I was getting my salad at the counter, my mom was behind me at the salad bar getting herself a salad. I looked at the cashier and she said that we were not supposed to get two salads but she would let it slide this time. I thanked her and then sat down with my mom.
Now it was as if we were eating at one of those tents from a fair or something. We were seated on metal picnic tables. And they were cold. I don’t remember actually eating the meal although I know we did. My mom had covered the curly friends in ketchup which I have an extreme distaste for and I asked her why she would do such a thing. She just exclaimed that she wanted to. For some reason that sufficed.
After we ate, I’m assuming because the food was gone and only trash was left on our plates my mom took me to Wal-Mart. But we never went inside. We just sat out in the parking lot for a while.
Then my mom took me across the street from the Missouri Conservation Center by Mobile (used to be BP). She took me to a trailer/apartment. Inside was cramped with three beds which all looked overly sleeped in. I sat on one and my mom sat on the other.
I looked at her strangely with an expression of both confusion and fascination. I asked her what we were doing here. She told me this is where she was living now. She said “but Jim and I are not fighting, if that’s what you think”. She exclaimed rather defensively. I continued to stare at her with the same expression.
"What’s something big that happens in March, Alexis?"
"Exactly, Courtney and I are living here because it will be more cost efficient for everyone. "
Of course none of this made sense to me but I just laid down on the bed and went to sleep. I woke up in ‘real life’ after that. But this dream was so real that when I woke up at Jason’s I thought for a second that my mom had either called and was coming to get me or that the entire dream happed.
I believe our dreamworld is just as real as our ‘real world’. I mean what is reality anyway. If you need filled in with more detail about this dream or any other aspect of my life feel free to formspring.me!
