A Short List of Some Recurring Dream Themes in Alphabetical Order

Celebrity Friends : Hey, you, famous person, and me, we’re just hangin’ out like pals, like buds. I don’t care that you’re famous. We’re cool like that.

Hero : Don’t worry! I’ll save you. Maybe I’ll fight some people. Maybe I’ll call 911. Maybe I will lift this heavy object or jump through this window. Rawr!

My Cats : They’re outside. Why are they out there? How did they get there? Ohmygod I have to get them. Oh no! They’re out again!

Other Cats : Oh so cute! No wait. Not quite cute. Sorta weird looking: tiny coffee bean eyes, a mouth full of human baby teeth, extra pointy snout. Oh well. Nice kitties

Public Restrooms : Filth! No privacy! Filth! Ugh! Filth!

Sorry : I know we haven’t spoken to each other in forever. Perhaps you’ve moved away. Perhaps I’ve moved on. Either way, it’s kinda nice to see you here.

Working : I’m there already and I haven’t even gotten out of bed yet? And now I need to get up and go there again? Bummer.


  1. 1) Had it, except more often I’m in a relationship with the celebrity (not always someone I would choose were I conscious, I might add) and we’re just gazing lovingly at each other from across the room. My favorite dream.

    3) LOL had it, except with ferrets.

    5) Have it at least once a month. Tery does too. Why do we all have this dream?

    6) I constantly dream of ex co-workers, and almost always from my last warehouse job. I think I have some deep-seated guilt/regret from leaving the place (the pay and benefits were amazing, the co-workers tolerable, the work kind of dull and repetitive. Though had I known this economy was coming I totally would have stayed).

  2. I’ve told my boss that I’m going to start counting the time that I dream that I am at work on my timesheet. The only question then is – do I count the amount of time I experienced in the dream, or the amount of time the passed while I slept? E.g. alarm goes off at 0545, hit snooze, go back to sleep and dream that I have been at work all morning, snooze goes off at 0555 – should I put 4 hours on my timesheet or 10 minutes?

  3. I think neither, unless we’re about to enter some sort of Judge Dreddian or Minority Report world.
