Thanks for all of your input/psychoanalysis of my DreamBaby Dreams. Very interesting. Certainly gave me things to consider. As promised, here's another one of my weird dreams. I had this one Sunday night. [segway into dream music]
I am meeting my mother for lunch at a buffet somewhere. We are filling our plates with food, including really big luscious red strawberries. Anyway, as we are approaching our booth, there are two guys sitting in the booth next to us. I recognize them. They are apparently good friends of mine. They motion for me to come sit down with them. They need to discuss our recent transaction. My mom doesn't think I should. But I convince her they are good friends. She doesn't seem upset, and like what happens often in dreams, she disappears completely from the dream.
Suddenly we are no longer in a buffet restaurant, but some greasy-spoon diner. The two guys and I start to chat - a little small talk. The big guy tells me about his family and about the fun stuff they have planned for the weekend, etc. The smaller guy appears to be a closer friend to me than the bigger one. We talk briefly about his struggles as a gay man (I don't know what that reference is about).
Anyway - to cut to the chase, they bring up the fact that my latest "move" has actually cost us money. The three of us are apparently investing in something together. Anyway, I get confused. I tell them I didn't understand how it all worked. I feel mortified that I have cost us money. I apologize. They are very forgiving.
They are both trying to explain how the market works, and how to make money in it, etc. I can hear them, but can't understand the words they are saying; it's mumbo-jumbo. I feel overwhelmed and start to cry. "I can't do this. I can't do this anymore. I don't know what I am doing!" I exclaim. They both try to get me to calm down, but I just keep crying and repeating myself. Until, that is, I actually woke myself up from crying so hard.
So, I turned my tear-stained pillow over and go back to sleep, never to see my "investment friends" again.
Weird... any thoughts on this one???
