Some time ago I woke up from a dream that puzzled me. I was asking myself why on earth would I dream such things. I thought about it for a while and later on made the following notes in draft:
“Not being able to read the street names in a directory.
Not knowing Peter’s phone number.
Getting on a bus not knowing where it was going.
Going to sleep on the bus, waking up after one hour.
Having no idea to what place the bus took me.
Everything looking totally unfamiliar.
Having asked for the toilets finding out they are on a different floor and can only be reached by climbing up some pipes which I cannot do!
Originally I left a party where I felt I could not talk to anyone. I just did not know what to say to anyone.
I wanted to look for a toilet somewhere else, thought I’d be back soon and didn’t mention to Peter that I was leaving. Later on I felt awful that I had not told him where I was going. Our house with a toilet was supposed to be close by. So why on earth did I board a bus? No idea.”
I guess I had no idea where the bus had taken me. Everything around me looked totally unfamiliar. I wanted to find out where I was. This is why I tried to find in a directory where the hell the bus had taken me. I was thinking I should ring Peter and let him know where I was. Then I realised that I did not have his phone number. The mobile phone number is so very long, I never bothered to remember it. So this meant I could not ring Peter.
I woke up from this bad dream when I realised no way could I climb up on these pipes to reach the toilets. And I felt I had to go to the toilet. But this is how the dream started. I had that urge to go to the toilet. I have no idea why I ended up on that bus instead of going home to visit our toilet there. Going to sleep on the bus did bring me even further away from toilets. How did I know I had been asleep for one hour when I did not even know which route the bus had taken?
This is all so confusing. Who where these people at the party? Why couldn’t I talk to them?
