|11:00 am - dream on you little girl|
I had a really odd dream last night. The kind that leaves you with residual emotion when you wake up. I keep remembering fewer and fewer parts of it, so I'm going to write it down before I forget it all.
I was getting married.
Yes, to Jacob.
Some of the dream was from my perspective, some was in that third-person style. I was wearing a wedding dress but I don't remember what it looked like-- it was standard.
The wedding itself wasn't the bulk of the dream-- it was afterward. First, I noticed that people were carrying around inappropriate wedding gifts, like a My Little Pony dream house or something. Unwrapped. Jacob was sitting at a cafeteria-style table talking to some friends (I don't remember who). Then I decided to run an errand *instead* of going to my reception. It was a really sunny day and I went to some town that I don't recognize from real life.
I went home (my real home) and opened a wedding present (yes, it was at my house)... it was a really top-of-the-line dual-cup coffee maker. And I don't drink coffee. I decided to see if it could make tea, and ended up figuring out how to make really good hot chocolate. While I was fiddling with it I heard Bradley yelling for me (not in a panic way). He was in the library so I couldn't really hear him from the kitchen. When I finally went back to hear what he was saying he was yelling at me for something (which I remembered this morning but can't remember now).
That's all I remember now. Kinda vague, but weird enough for me. Anything stick out as interesting? I wasn't going to blog this dream at all, but then I came into work and found out my coworker Christine (23 years old) is engaged now. So that was coincedence enough.
Current Mood: weirded out
My reading is that you feel like you should be moving in the direction of marriage given society standards, but you definitely aren't ready for it. The gifts for a little girl as a wedding present being something you noticed says to me that you aren't ready to give up on childhood. The coffee machine says that you aren't ready for society's standards of what an adult relationship entails. (As in, a coffee machine is a standard wedding gift, and getting it when you don't drink coffee is jarring.) However, your attempt to find another use for the coffee pot says that you are willing to have an adult relationship, as long as norms doesn't butt in too much.
Ooh, I like that. Anyone else?

I think what HL said is a damn brilliant and insightful interpretation. I think the fact that today is Jacob's last major milestone birthday until 30 may have triggered the "I don't wanna grow up, 'cause baby if I did, I couldn't be a Toys R Us Kid" moment in your subconscious.
Right on, HL. Cyber-five!
