Strange dreams

The last month or so I’ve had a lot of very strange dreams. Some are just odd, and some are flat out nightmares. Last night’s dream was bizarre.

I was wearing bright red elasticated waist pants plus a short, red jacket-esque kind of thing. Think bolero length and you’ll get the picture. Now you should know that I don’t wear elasticated waist pants ever, and I never ever wear red because I look like I’m dying in it. I'm not kidding. When I've worn red, friends and co-workers have asked me if I'm getting sick, that's how awful I look in it. I don't even own anything red. But in my dream last night, I wore elasticated waist pants (yuck) that were red (double yuck), plus the red jacket (barf).

In the dream, I'd be walking by a mirror or a window or something reflective and I'd catch a glimpse of my big as a barn butt in these God-awful red pants. The bolero length jacket only emphasized the awfulness. It was mesmerizing and more than a little disconcerting. I have no idea what I was actually doing in the dream, all I know is I kept seeing my big ol butt larger than life and twice as ugly.

No idea what it means, but man it was weird.

It sounds like kind of an unemployment dream, sort of "this is not the real you."

That could well be.

I know my internal body image is completely based on unreality but man, in my dream I rivaled anyone on whatever that reality show is where all the contestants are morbidly obese.

I'd really like the nightmares to stop too. They interrupt my sleep :-(

You must have been thinking of me - i.e., elastic waists, red, short jackets. Ha!

Not a chance, Mom! You have far more style and are not a big ol red barn butt :-)

I'm with Jeanne - this has something to do with the morass of insanity of your job situation.

it means you are wearing my pants. And I want them back.

did you happen to catch the Target Black Friday commercial? That might have been the cause of the nightmares!
