Sunday 160: Dream #4


Smoked Lace?

a) Name of feral cat I took care of in a dream (in order to earn college credit)
b) A tasty new treat
c) What I did just prior to going to bed


Some of you, who know me on Facebook, are privy to random postings containing snippets of various dreams I have. Based on the sheer craziness of many of these dreams, I would not put it past these friends to choose C.  The correct answer, however, is A. 

I love my dreams.They are quite entertaining and many give subtle, and not so subtle, clues to the subconscious. The following, a dream which occurred just last night, is a really good example:

I found myself a 2nd job at another local hospital. Part of my duties entailed participating in an afternoon cooking contest using a mystery ingredient. I was literally “floored” to find out my mystery ingredient was a carpet remnant.

So I did what any clever cook would do. I first roasted the remnant to bring out its natural savory goodness. I then trimmed and deep fried the carpet threads until nice and perfectly crispy. After which I ground them into a fine powder and added it to a mix and made churros. Unfortunately, I woke up before judging was completed. 


The purpose of Sunday 160 is to write a story or prose in EXACTLY 160 characters. Please go visit host extraordinaire, Monkey Man, to play along or read other offerings. I hope you enjoyed my little contribution.

I'm so envious. I have trouble remembering my dreams. I retain snippets, but not the details that stick with you. What's your secret?

(I have paper and pen on the bedside table to write my dreams down as soon as I wake up, even if it is in the middle of the night. Still no consistency with remembering.)

As long as they are good dreams it's cool...

My dreams are pre-cognitive most of the times! I never ignore any; however subtle or ugly it maybe. Often it tells me what is to come next!

Smoked Lace.. I love cats btw!
Awesome 160.. :D

You're the second blogger I've read today of weird dreams.

All my dreams get sucked from my brain out my window by passing ghouls just before I awaken. I have some crazy-a$$ dreams, tho. Like... ones about me smoking lace and riding on cats backs while while dipping my toes into arctic lake water, at sunset, always at sunset.
