Day 15: Dreams

I don't remember my dreams very often, but when I do, it is usually because they have fallen into one of four recurring themes:

1. Teeth falling out. Someone told me once that this tends to mean a change or new chapter in your life, like when your baby teeth fall out and are replaced by adult teeth. If that's true, I have a had a lot of new life chapters. I often wonder if it isn't more literal, that I've been grinding or clenching my teeth in my sleep.

2. Bathrooms. Some variation of trying to find one, trying to sit down but the toilet disappears, something weird/crazy/dirty is around, or I'm being watched/can't find a door/etc. Again, I have to wonder if these are literal and happen because I have a full bladder... I almost never get up in the middle of the night.

3. Andy. The fact that he has his own LJ tag says it all. I either dream that we are meeting up for the first time in a long time, or I just dream of doing day-to-day stuff and he's there. I don't know if he's still in my subconscious in a "what might have been" type of way, or if it is guilt that I hurt him. Or both... a lot unresolved there I guess.

4. McDonalds. I guess working there for 6 years really imprints on you. Usually my dreams involve going back to work there, but something weird happens or I don't know how to do something.

I've always heard that teeth dreams reflect financial concerns. I think the bathroom one is more literal because I have those too and always wake up (before it's too late, thank goodness!) because I really have to pee.

I have a lot of bathroom dreams too. Often I'm in a bathroom, but none of the stalls work, I can't find a toilet, the line is too long, etc.

I also have the teeth dreams, now that I think about it.

I have the teeth dreams fairly often. Usually I notice one coming out and then they are just shooting out - more than I have.

I still have dreams about working at the ice arena even though it's been more than 10 years.
