Weird Dreams

It’s already Thursday here, so I’m technically a day late to join in on Fandango’s Provocative Question. I’ve never joined in on this meme before, but I really liked this week’s question. It is to share the strangest, weirdest dream you can remember.

I already shared about the dream that got me to quit putting sugar in my coffee some months ago. That wasn’t as weird a dream, considering that refined sugar is by some people considered pure poison indeed.

Another weird dream that had an impact on my later life is one I had when I was about seven-years-old. I dreamt that there was a big soccer match between Ajax and Feijenoord, the two main rivaling clubs in the Netherlands and the only ones I’d heard of at the time. I apparently was an Ajax fan and they won. So far, nothing weird, except that I knew nothing about soccer and certainly wasn’t a fan of any club. The weird bit comes now: someone gave me some pills that made me cry, so that everyone would think I was sad and hence supported the “right” club.

As a side note, I lived in Rotterdam at the time, so indeed Feijenoord would’ve been the club to support. I became a wannabe Ajax fan as soon as I learned anything about soccer at all, as my friends at the school for the blind were Ajax fans. This was probably after our move to Apeldoorn though.

Like I said, the dream had an impact on my later life. Indeed, when I went to the school for the blind at age nine, I got a phys ed teacher who looked a lot like the man who’d given me those pills in my dream. I took an instant dislike to him and even though I knew why, I couldn’t help it. He was a pretty strict teacher, so I may’ve disliked him anyway.

What was one of the weirdest dreams you can remember?

  1. No joke, I always post my most crazy dreams on my Facebook because I remember them so vividly! And they are always so wild. Note: It’s from 2014 AND I’ve been a Keanu Reeves fan since 1994 lol. My most “famous” one (which I am copy and pasting here): “Totally had a dream that felt soooo real… until the madness set in (if you know me you know where it’s gonna lead). So here it is– I ran to Target in Howell (my mother asked me to, since she was busy) and when I arrived there, Keanu Reeves was going to be there signing autographs. So I just hung around watching the workers set up a table and all that, until he showed up. I made sure I was on line, and I was second. We chatted while he signed a piece of paper, because that was the only thing I had on me in my bookbag….. and since there were only two other people behind me, I just hung around the area till they left. While he was sitting to see if more people were going to come over, I started asking him questions… “Is Al Pacino a nice guy? Because he looks mean, but I’m sure he is cool” and he told me that he indeed was a very nice man. I asked if we could take a photo together, since this experience has made my day, year, life, and he said sure. So we took the selfie, but I said I didn’t know how to do well because I was new to having an iPhone. We got a decent picture, then I said I had to leave. He said I shouldn’t go to the parking lot alone because it was late at night and there could be a mugger out there, so he offered to walk me to my car. As we were walking out he went in a side door (I assumed a celebrity entrance type thing), so I followed him. It turned into a spiral staircase but I just kept following him, assuming he knew the way to the parking lot. Then we hit a landing and come across a Halloween decoration set up, which looked so realistic. We both stopped to look at it, amazed. Then the scarecrows came to life and set themselves on fire while chasing us, bats flying everywhere, jack o lanterns growing legs and giving chase too. So I followed him even more, running my ass off, down more stairs. Then more Halloween decorations and more stairs…………….. I woke myself up after that.”

  2. It is great to see you taking part in these prompts. I love to jump in to FPQ and can usually think of some nonsense to write. He normally does a “flashback” prompt on Fridays, too, just reposting something from the same day in a previous year. I think that’s fun, too.
