The main background theme of this dream seemed to be hurrying/rushing/running/racing/et cetera and all that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and I remember being inside a fictional building that had a buffet, a school or college, and maybe one or more other parts/areas to the building; and I was with most of my family and family members from my mom’s side of the family, and we seemed to be having a family gathering at the buffet.
My brothers KD and TD were young again and I remember wanting to eat some carrot cake, everyone was having a good time, and I remember walking around the buffet getting food on my plate; and then I tried to find a place to sit with my family, I think that the seating was around/near/part of the buffet bar/area oddly, and I remember finding a seat but I do not think that I got to start eating or I only got to start eating briefly.
My brother TD went to the bathroom but did not return so I went to look for him, I can not remember if I ever found him or not, either way somehow I missed being able to finish my food and I did not get any carrot cake because my family was leaving like the buffet was over or like they were in a rush; and I remember wanting to finish my food and get some carrot cake, and I think that an unknown man with whitish colored skin with maybe yellowish colored hair stopped to greet me because he recognized me as a former schoolmate of his and maybe he said that he was in the Quiz Bowl Club back in high school when I was in it.
He knew/remembered our former male classmate AK, I remember us briefly/quickly talking about him and old memories from high school, but I still did not remember his name even though I recognized him; and at some point we said goodbye, and I remember walking in the hall of the school or college part of the building where there were students walking through the hall like everyone was leaving.
Some of my former classmates were in the crowd of students like my former male classmate TC and a former male schoolmate of mine named BR, I think that my former schoolmate BR or someone else was talking about a woman who he said was crazy and a murderer, and then for some unknown reason(s) everyone started running wildly like they were racing to get somewhere first like it was a competition so I started running too.
I jog about five days a week so I ran at a steady pace looking around as the others struggled as hard as they could while I was not even trying hard, somehow the hall ended up being/going outside into the street my parent’s live on, and the finish line seemed to be my parent’s yard maybe; and I reached my parent’s yard first, and my former classmate TC reached it second even though he was taunting me as we ran.
I/We walked further into the yard on the side of the house near the picnic table, my mom and some of my family were inside the house and I saw and heard them from the window talking about a kitten or small pet was missing, and stuck in a hole in the ground next to the house was the kitten or small pet; and so I helped the kitten/pet out of the hole, and then I probably told my mom about it.
The next thing that I remember is maybe driving my automobile around a slightly fictional version of the city of D downtown as everyone was in a rush and there were long lines at various places like the bank/et cetera, I think that I saw the music artist Jack White near the bank where there was a long line of automobiles, and at some point I possibly walked around some of the businesses downtown to avoid the traffic.
People were walking around quickly in a rush and maybe I stopped inside a fictional business that had an arcade, maybe some people were playing an arcade racing game, and maybe I joined them and/or we were really racing; either way I remember racing from downtown up the street past/passed the theater in maybe a motorcycle against the other people, and I remember a male police officer with whitish colored skin wearing sunglasses chasing some of the others as we raced.
The finish line was inside a store past one of the aisles of shelves, possibly part of the building from earlier in the dream, and I was the first person to reach the finish line again and a thin woman with medium-dark brownish colored skin with shiny long blackish colored hair was the second person to reach the finish line; and she was a bit disappointed in losing, I waited for a few others to arrive, and then I left and I woke up.
