What’s in a dream?

I’ve had such a terrible tummy ache since yesterday evening. My husband made us a really good dinner so I don’t know if it was triggered by something I ate or if it’s my nerves.

I figured out a few years ago that when I’m really anxious/nervous/stressed or something has upset me tremendously it goes straight to my tummy. So last night after we bathed our daughter and she went to bed I curled up in the fetal position on the floor because nothing else seemed to help. Maybe I’m nervous about the internship I’m going to start, the unknown mixed in with the excitement of a new venture. Needless to say my sleep was a bit restless as well. I just couldn’t get comfortable and kept waking up and try to find the comfy spot without waking my husband.

Which brings me to the next part not related I think in anyway to my fragile tummy. In the midst of my tossing and turning and staring at the wall wide awake I managed to have a few dreams, one of which was just weird and disgusting. So for those of you weak of heart, please stop now. I normally don’t share gross things like this but this one left me baffled.

Somewhere in the middle of the night my brother happened to jump into my dream. I remember there was a table and a few other people were around, none of whom I can remember, and the grossest thing happened. My brother was clearing his throat and these massive loogies were landing on the table (what the f ?!?!). I remember being so baffled by this and so disgusted in my dream and trying to grab huge wads of paper towels to clean it up.

So this left me wondering, what in the world is going on in my mind for something so gross as this to pop up in my dreams? I tend to have some really bizarre and vivid dreams but nothing I can remember as gross as this one. I keep telling myself I should write them down but if I don’t do it first thing in the morning they just disappear. Maybe I’ll start scribbling down some of the more vivid and creative ones and sharing them here. Again, sorry for the grossness, but I’m truly baffled by this one. What odd things our mind decides to grab and focus on when lost in sleep…
