I have to say, this dream was so VIVID that I woke up in shock that I had it. Did someone else’s dream crawl into my head while I was sleeping? Because there is NOTHING in this dream that I would ever even consider doing.
In my dream I am younger – probably twenties or early thirties. For whatever reason, I am going to Jakarta the next day so the dream started with me sleeping. Someone slipped into bed with me and in a dreamy state, we made love – tender, passionate love. When I awoke (in the dream still) I realized the man beside me was my best friend who I had never had a single spark of attraction to in all the years I had known him. I was touched by his gentle face as he slept. He was also the person I was going to Jakarta with.
Next thing I know I’m on the airplane touching down in a foreign city knowing only my best friend. It is very confusing because people are speaking another language and I understand so little. I’m jostled around as we make it to his parents house where I meet them and they are so sweet to me. Anyway, I am given a bowl with a square, funny looking dumpling like thing in it. The father and mother encourage me to take a bite of it while my best friend tells me not to. I am torn between not wanting to seem hospitable and believing my friend that I should not eat it.
The warning look my friend gave me won out and I refused the bowl as graciously as I could. Instead of being angry or insulted, both parents beamed at me – apparently it was some sort of a test on whether I would make a good wife for their son. I laughed at that but then realized everyone around me was totally serious – our wedding was supposed to happen in the next few days. I turn to my friend, he puts his arms around me and I woke up. Very strange.
Wow, no idea where that dream came from. Jakarta is over in Indonesia and I have no desire whatsoever to visit the place. I haven’t watched or read anything lately that relates to this dream in any way. I finished Midnight this morning but it is about people being changed into wolf-like creatures…nothing about any of the above. When I woke up, I had a very intense headache – felt like I couldn’t breath or move my head. Now, an hour later, the headache is starting to ease a bit.
I hate stupid dreams that I can’t find the basis for.
