Intergalactic Princess vs. Talking Zombie Food

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had very vivid, lucid dreams. When I roll over in the morning and start a sentence with, “Hey, last night I dreamed…” the hubby braces himself. In my dreams, I’ve been a ninja, I’ve been on pirate ships, I’ve flown balloon airplanes, I’ve controlled bullets with my mind. I’ve hung out with my favorite TV and movie stars and certain members of the British royal family. What’s there to not love?

Considering how often Munchkin asks me to "put the potato's butt back on," I'm glad these guys haven't been in my dreams.

No Toys Were Harmed While Posing For This Pictorial Representation Of My Dreams.

My favorite dream ever happened several years ago. I was a newly-discovered intergalactic princess. If I didn’t stand on the right circle with the other intergalactic royalty on the magical space ship, it wouldn’t move. Β One of my other jobs as an intergalactic princess was to take an alien husband. My real husband was okay with this. I mean, he understood my destiny, and he’s a really great guy. But choosing the alien husband was up to me.

I chose Stitch from the Disney movie, Lilo and Stitch. I told my husband about it when I woke up, and we’re still happily married, so I know I made the right choice ten years ago.

More recently, I had a brand new dream experience. I was fighting zombies. With shovels. But the stupid zombies didn’t realize they were supposed to die when I hit them with shovels, so I had to go find another weapon. When all else failed, what did I turn to?

Talking McDonalds’ hamburgers and french fries.

They were piled up in this muppet garden, all of them just jabbering away from their various places among the flowers and chocolate fountains. The garden had a muppet-ish feel to it, but let me tell you, the zombies were no match for talking food.

Even I was a little scared.

And that was after I woke up.

What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?

  1. My dreams are jumbled with no recall, but the few I remember cause me to ponder. My husband is the amazing dreamer. Every great while, he dreams per-cognitively. Years ago, while moose hunting alone in AK the dream showed his boat turning over in the river while moose hunting. Thankfully, he believed it. The next morning, tied everything down and tried to avoid the event. But can destiny be changed? Long story, but happy ending.

  2. I dream but I don’t wake up to anything as vivid as yours. And, I don’t retain them like you do.

    • Sometimes I wish I didn’t remember, but most of the time it’s entertaining. πŸ™‚ Stress usually makes them more interesting.

  3. I LOVE this post. You have some vivid dreams, Jami. I rarely remember mine, although I’ve woken up ticked of at my husband once in a while and I can generally tie it to some waning dream-memory. I’ll be watching comments today to see what other dreams people talk about. Very interesting!

    • Yes! I totally know what you mean about waking up ticked with the hubby. Hasn’t happened in a while, but there are a few I can vividly remember (and which he didn’t appreciate, lol). I even remember dreaming about slapping one of my teachers when I was in seventh grade. I couldn’t look her in the eye for a week. Isn’t it crazy how that affects us?

  4. This is so funny. I too have woken up ticked at my husband. NOW THOSE DREAMS I REMEMBER πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

  5. Great post. And too funny about waking up ticked at the poor hapless hubbies πŸ™‚

    I used to have really memorable dreams, but not so many lately. Have woken up with the germ of a plot for a novel once or twice, now those dreams I LOVE!

    Sometimes when hubby falls asleep on the sofa, he’ll say something in his sleep and I’ll question him. From the mumbled responses I get, heaven alone knows what goes on in that man’s head while he’s out for the count. He must be having really interesting dreams. Sadly, he can never remember them.

  6. Oh, yes, the questioning the sleeping husband! I love that trick. πŸ™‚

    LOVE when dreams can inspire a plot. That’s fantastic!

  7. I love you and your dream stories. You totally need to write that heroine we’ve discussed- it would be awesome!

    • πŸ™‚ I’m getting irritated because I haven’t remembered much about my dreams the last week or so. The munchkin had a vivid one about being in coffee last night though.

      I do need to write a dreaming heroine, and I like that idea we found on Saturday!!
