I’ve had several of what, for me, count as nightmares. Where I wake up feeling sad. I’d just as soon not think about them, but I still remember one, so I’ll share a little.
The premise was that I was visiting a place I used to work, I might have even been working there again. In either case it was sucky, but I spent a lot of the dream getting caught up on things. Then the sky went dark and aliens began invading. Which is a really weird thing for me to dream about. I never had an invasion dream that I can recall. Anyway, they were shooting these earthquake rays that sent anime style destructive waves along the ground at whatever. Long story short I was escaping, even though everyone else didn’t seem that worried, but a ship spotted me and took a shot at me. I realized that no matter how fast I ran I’d never get far enough to get outside the blast zone. So I just stood there. It was weird. I kind of started to realize it was a dream at this point, but I wondered what would happen when the force hit me. Then I turned to my right and the character Rayman, from a series of games I hate, was sitting on a riding lawnmower. He was like “hey.” Then I woke up.
The dream was bad on several levels. Not only was it a bad story, but it was also dumb at the end. I was like >:| I hope it’s not a long series of sucky dreams. I’d like some good one sprinkled in at least.
