After yesterday’s realization about my recurring dreams, I had more freaky dreams last night. This time I had my glasses and I wasn’t back in high school, so they weren’t recurring. But they were freaky.
Dream 1: Ford Motor Company reneged on my dad’s retirement and forced him and half his co-workers to return to work in Connecticut. So much for retirement in Kansas. To top things off, my parents announced they were pregnant.
Dream 2: The whole cancelled retirement quickly turned into some strange coastal village inhabited by the characters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. At one point I was desperately trying to jab the handle of a wooden spoon into a vampire, only to score a number of bruises and minor puncture wounds. Apparently you either need the strength of the slayer or a sharpened stake. I’m not even sure which characters were present, though I vaguely remember seeing Buffy, Willow, Spike, possibly Drusilla, and my wife. I’m not sure I was playing myself, but it’s possible I was either Buffy or Zander. Though I did suck at the vamp staking, so I was probably Zander.
