So, I Had This Dream

Last week, I had a dream.  In this dream, I was walking through a field.  Scattered throughout the field were dirt mounds, kind of like big anthills.  Except these weren’t anthills, they were hornet’s nests.  Yellow jackets.  Whatever you want to call them.  I was trying to make my way through this field without getting stung.  At one point, I lost one of my shoes, a green clog.  I’m standing in the field flamingo-like, on one leg, the other leg bent, my foot pressed against my thigh.  A fellow teacher, B.C. walks up and I ask her to help me look for my clog.  She looks down and says, “But they are the same color as the grass, we’ll never find it.”

I lift my head up and glare at her.  And then I woke up.  Really, I think the anger woke me up.  My first coherent thought was, “Thanks B.C., way to state the obvious.”

I get to school and I’m telling another teacher M.B. about the dream.  She, ever so helpfully, sends me a link explaining what all these things mean.  (She is the same teacher, who will post the following status on FB, “You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte.” Forcing you to play “Your So Vain” in a never ending loop in your mind the rest of the day). 

So, apparently my dream means:  evil, anger and negative feelings on a long, arduous, laborious journey.


I hope tonight that I dream of butterflies and rainbows and unicorns.

    Hum, hum, hum… it was an ongoing discussion between my college roommates and me about those lyrics. Finally, the local newspaper solved the question by printing the lyrics. ‘Govotte’ didn’t come up a lot.

    I am one of those weird ones who loves to dream. I work out all my emotions and life’s little irritations in my dreams.

    Sending you butterflies and rainbows!
    I think I must be totally insane if I base how I feel (awake) on what I dream at night. I never finish anything in my dreams! So, what does that make me??

    I always have weird dreams. I don’t attribute it to meaning anything. I attribute it to my being a really light sleeper.

    And I think the lyric is “one eye in the mirror as you waltzed yourself about.” Just sayin’. That makes more sense anyway, doesn’t it? Exactly how does one “govotte”?

    I dreamed about Dungeoness crabs Saturday night and then on Sunday Bobby Flay grilled Dungeoness crabs. If I had known that was going to happen I would have asked the crabs for the lottery numbers.
