Are We Awake Yet?

This morning I had one of those irritating 'waking up' dreams.

I was laying in bed and scratching my side when I felt something odd. It was stuck to my skin and felt like semi-dried rubber cement. I picked at it and managed to get it off. When I looked at it closely I saw it was a small worm. I picked again and found another! I decided to go to the bathroom and check this out.

I tried to get out of bed but couldn't - something didn't seem right. I struggled for a minute and then woke up. What a dumb dream I thought and then scratched an itch. Something came loose off of my skin and I held it my hand. I decided to check it out in the bathroom and pulled a sheet off of myself in order to get up...and pulled a sheet off of me in order to get up... and pulled another one and realized I don't have that many sheets!

I woke up for real with nothing in my hand and the blankets still on me.

Dreams are bizarre.

I almost thought you were serious for a second because I didn't see that first sentence saying it was a dream. But yeah, that is a really bizarre dream.

Yes - dreams are bizzare. Yesterday morning I dreamt I had been bitten by a trantula on my foot. When I woke up (really) I could still feel something on my foot.

I love dreaming, it's so much fun!

At least it wasn't a wet dream. You would've had to wash the sheets.

This sounds like something out of an R.L. Stine book! Glad your OK! :)
