Dead Dreams

Ok! I can’t remember why, but I told the C-girl I’d post something interesting and revealing about what goes on inside my head. Couple that with Mama Chimp’s recent entry about exploring the subconscious mind and then C-girl’s subsequent entry about incorporating TV into dreams and I decided upon this entry. Having fought this thing with cutting,pasting, writing and rewriting for the past couple hours, I’m positive I’ve failed with the interesting part. Maybe it’s just because my patience is worn thin with the whole entry. Anyway this is going to be long, weird, may not have a conclusion and is sure to be offensive to the puritans amongst you. If you’re offended by anything or easily bored, stop reading now.

I mean it!
This is it!

Last chance!

You were warned!
For those of you remaining…
you asked for it…
away we go!

 I had a dream where I was a ghost(1). I don’t know how I knew I was a ghost. I just was and had no problem with it. I don’t believe in ghosts in real life so it wasn’t a lucid dream or I would have called off the dogs right at the beginning. I was in school and attending a class just for ghosts. I was the only one in the class(2). The room didn’t have a pencil sharpener. I had to go to the room next door to sharpen my pencil(3). When I got back all the seats were taken. I asked(4) the teacher(5) where the hell all these ghosts had come from. I don’t recall seeing the teacher’s face. Nor do I recall seeing any of the other student’s faces. It was just like being amongst a heard of cattle. I wasn’t trying to identify them, I was just irritated I was standing in the middle of them and my seat had been taken. The teacher pointed out the back window(6) at my grave(7). I looked out at the cemetery(8) behind the school. “Son of a bitch!”, I said. I’d left the lid of my coffin(9) open and dead people just kept climbing out of it. So I ran outside and closed my casket real quick to stop the rest of those dead bastards from escaping the cemetery. There was a headstone(10) at my grave but I didn’t look at it. I seemed to know it was mine just like I knew I was a ghost.
 This is where I tell people it got pretty strange after that and stop telling the tale. The dream seemed to shift gears here. As I walk back into the school(11), a female teacher is walking back down the hallway(12) from the teacher’s lounge. She’s just gotten herself a cup of coffee(13). She’s walking ahead  of me. She’s wearing a blue dress(14) with some white print on it. It clings lovingly to the cheeks of her ass(15). I smack(16) her ass hard enough to make a pretty loud echo in the hallway as I pass her. I immediately take a right turn into the first room(17) on the right as I pass her. The room has a slanted floor(18). On the far right-hand side of the room is a little pile of spanish peanuts(19). I don’t know how they are defying gravity and not rolling down the slanted floor. I sit down beside them with my legs(20) stretched out below me and my feet(21) on the floor to keep from falling. I start to clean(22) up the peanuts, picking them up individually but leaving the little shells they always have on them behind. The floor is not only slanted but old and unfinished. A voice asks, “What are you doing down there?” I look up to see the teacher I’d just slapped on the ass. I recognize this teacher. She’s not a teacher in real life, she’s just playing one in my dream. I tell her I’m picking up the peanuts. She steps forward and she says, “I thought maybe you were looking for this” and she lifts her dress up to her hips(23). She’s wearing no panties. She has pubic hair but it’s short. If you’ve ever used a set of barber’s clippers and I tell you it’s about the length a number 3 attachment would cut, that’s how long it was. I run my hands(24) up the outside of her legs, grip her buttocks and bury my mouth(25) between her legs. I’m basically french kissing(26) her pussy(27). I start leaning back with my lips(28) still locked to her sex and my hands wrapped around her glutes. She’s then kneeling over my head. She drops the hem of her dress and grabs me by the hair(29). Then my alarm goes off. It’s 6:50 pm and I try to shake the cobwebs out of my head. I have to get something to eat and get ready for work. What a cruel end to the dream.

I went through several online dream dictionaries looking for possible explanations for different parts of this dream. Once again, Mama Chimp sort of put that one into my head by immediately checking a dream meaning site herself and feeding me something about what ghosts in dreams mean. So taking her baton and running with it, I numbered (as you may have noticed) words within the text of the dream and listed some of their meanings below.

When I found different ideas for meanings I listed them all. Not all of the meanings are applicable because they don’t accurately depict the way the subject took place in my dream. Most of them involve seeing one of the words. Case in point is my being a ghost. There really are no discussions about when the dreamer IS the ghost.
I found that some websites copied other websites verbatim. That sort of leads me to believe that they were constructed by people like me who don’t actually know anything about dreams but have marginal skills at cut and paste. I don’t really know how they arrive at these meanings. Obviously dreams play an important part in our lives. I think it’s more likely a combination of what we were thinking about the day preceding the sleep, coupled with what we might hear during sleep. I know that I sleep with the TV going. Since I sleep during the day while the rest of the world is awake I need the background noise that a TV, radio or fan brings to block out the rest of the world. Typically I put a DVD in the player, turn the sound up just enough to hear what’s going on if I was listening intently but not loud enough to shake the walls. Just a little bit of noise. I know that I’ve heard conversations, telephone, music and gunshots coming from the TV and incorporated them into my dreams.
I have a DVD recorder and will record 7 hours off of some channel at a time if there is going to be something interesting on. One DVD has Vlad Dracula, the 300, underground Istanbul, underground London, underground Edinburgh and then Vlad the Impaler starts all over again. During my dream sleep I’m sure I soak all sorts of things up from these shows. I’m sure all sorts of things fed this dream. I had forgotten til just a couple days ago that only a day before this dream I’d signed up for a motorcycle safety course. I don’t know if I’m contemplating my impending motorcycle suicide by being a ghost in the classroom or what. That could be a possible explanation for that. The spanish peanuts preceding the ghostly oral sex is baffling.
I have no answers. I told you I wouldn’t. If you actually made it this far, leave me a note and I’ll send you a merit badge for being a trooper. If you had a strange dream you’d like to share, do it. You don’t have to link all the words in it. If you don’t remember any dreams, have no fear. I remember plenty of mine and I’ll share. Just not with all the cutting and pasting and… 


  1. I got to the end – can I have a badge? Interesting – especially as I’d thought you were female but now I’m not sure. I’m never convinced by these pat little lists of what dreams mean. The explanation I like best is that they mean exactly what you think they do in the first thought that flickers through your mind but often gets dismissed.

  2. You said you recognized the woman in the dress — that she wasn’t a teacher, just playing one in the dream. Do you know her? Is she someone you’d like to be involved with?

    I love interpreting dreams, they’re fun. I agree that some of the stuff that shows up in my dreams is left over stuff from the day before and some of it is the unresolved issues I’m trying to work on. And some of it just pure fluff — like feeling horny.

    I’m wondering if that’s what the basis of yours was. Online you seem witty and flirty and I wonder if that side of you was just sowing it’s oats, metaphorically speaking.

    Interesting side note: It took me about 10 years of marriage for my husband to show up consistently as my partner in a dream. Before that time the other person was usually faceless, someone I didn’t know — very occasionally it was a celebrity I recognized and that was always wild. I always thought in the back of my mind, um, Pierce baby (Brosnan) you know I’m not a celebrity right? He didn’t seem to mind.

    So my bottom line analysis is that you must have been listening to Dracula and are overdue for some affection.

  3. p.s. Thanks for the indepth post, it was fun 🙂

  4. I must always be wanting to give/receive pleasure/joy. Pussy is ALWAYS in my dreams LOL Smash \m/

  5. Hmmmmmm. Things you have said in the past lead me to think you are pretty self aware and insightful, so I tend to reject the idea that this dream is simply about a motorcycle class. I don’t think the peanuts before the oral sex is baffling. The “teacher” asks what you are doing, so obviously picking up peanuts has some significance. Thing is, the “teacher” seems to know better that the peanuts are just there and what you’ve decided to occupy your time with and not really what you want to be doing. I wonder how the teacher knew? I’ve read before that dreams tackle many different life issues at once which is why dreams can be so garbled and hard to make sense of. I also agree that since you are incorporating sounds from the awake world, there’s probably a lot in your dream that your brain is just processing from the outside and don’t mean anything at all.

    And I’m kinda pissed that you wouldn’t tell me the end of this dream in private but then go ahead and blog about it! Bastard! 🙂

  6. Hey, I like the new website. Pretty! Ahem…handsome, I mean. Dream was interesting. Tons of symbolism in there. Things are usually the total opposite of what you think. Like a coffin probably means a new job or something. And smacking a girl’s ass, probably means you’re gonna buy some mac and cheese today. I actually had an incredibly lucid sex dream last night. I don’t have many of those. The star of it was…well, never mind. It probably was really Andy Griffith with stripped socks.

  7. Anna – A special gold star for you being the first one in. I think you’re probably right on the dream analysis. What I always wonder is what happened that I don’t remember? I really only remember what happened right before I woke up. I’m sure there was much more dreaming that took place before that. If somebody ever invents a dreamcam, I’ll be the first one to invest.

    C-girl – The teacher is someone I know, but not nearly as well as I’d like. She’s not just physically attractive but is an extraordinary person as well. My admiration for her is not reciprocated but is nonetheless enormous. Whoever lands her heart wins the lottery.

    Smash, my brother, if you’ve got to dream about something, nothing brings a smile to your waking face like dreams of facing the diggity.

    Mama Chimp – That’s kind of an interseting take on the peanuts. Maybe I am just occupying time picking up the peanuts. I hadn’t viewed it like that. I always interpret food as food. I thought maybe the peanuts were just an apetizer to the main entree’. Unfortunately I dream in color and not in taste. At home I eat my peanut butter sandwiches with honey. If in the future if the second course is as sweet as it appears, I’ll relay it. Otherwise your interpretion is probably a winner.

    AWKitty – Can you have a lucid sex dream without being awake? Does that mean you were rubbing one out… to Andy Griffith? The Andy Grifith Show version or the Matlock Version? You can tell us. We won’t tell the guard cat.

  8. Mmmmmm, peanut butter and honey!! Know what else honey is good on? Oh – wait, never mind. Some folks have such vivid dreams, and so frequently too. I’m so jealous. All I get is little snippets, nothing to piece together. Makes for a rather boring sleep life.

  9. No, I dont! Im always astonished at the sort of things people must have googled to get to me. Like “pumpy Quim”, for instance. What could you possibly be hoping to find with that kind of search criteria? That funny sound you can hear is my mind boggling! s x
