The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Exhale, and it said:
Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong — and then, suddenly, you knew it would be alright.
And this is my response:
Once when I was a kid my parent’s and I were on vacation out-of-town at a motel, my dad and I went swimming in the swimming pool and no one else was around, and my dad let me float in shallow end wearing an orangish colored circular swim ring / inner tube / lifebuoy / flotation device while he made a few laps around the swimming pool.
When my dad was swimming a lap to the other side of the pool I slipped from my inner tube in a slightly deeper part of the pool where I could only jump up for air until I could not jump any more because I accidentally moved into an even deeper part of the pool, I was panicking and trying to yell for help but I was choking on water; and this was a terrible experience as I fought for my life and I was afraid to die until I could no longer fight anymore, and I started to sink in the pool as I was getting close to losing consciousness.
I was no longer afraid or panicking anymore, things felt very peaceful as I sunk and I was not worried anymore and I remember seeing light beaming down into the water from the sun maybe or because I was close to losing consciousness and/or for some other reason, and this moment felt amazing in ways that I can not properly describe almost like going home and I had nothing to worry about anymore and it felt like something calling me home; but then my dad pulled me out of the water before I lost consciousness, he hit me on my back with an open palm strike which helped me vomit out the water, and he saved my life.
I can still somewhat feel what I felt in that moment when I think about this experience, and I still feel like going back to that moment like something calling me home and/or like it felt like home and/or like somewhere I want to be or should be; and I felt that everything would be okay no matter what happened.
All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved a man playing the video game Fallout 4, and he was testing out legendary weapon effects on various weapons; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is being outside during the day in an area that was partly my parent’s neighborhood combined with a fictional street and area that had maybe a field-like area with grass and dirt and rocks that was used has a parking lot that was possibly near a college or somewhere like that, and I was in this parking lot-like and street-like area with a robot who could either float or moved on wheels; and it was a robot that was like a more realistic version of maybe a robot from the video game Fallout 4, and so it did not look like any of those robots but it was probably inspired by one of them.
The robot was owned by the college or whatever place was near this area, they had several robots that people in this area could use, and you could give the robot voice commands; and I knew how to use the previous robots, but the current robot that I was using was a new model that I had never used before.
I gave the robot a command to patrol the area but it started to scan me like it might attack me so I told it to stop and I tried the voice command again, but the same thing happened; and so I gave the robot a command to shut down until I could figure out how to use this new robot, and then I walked to my parent’s yard.
I started looking up how to use the new robot on my mobile phone but then I heard something being dragged down the street, it was a newspaper still wrapped in plastic but I did not see anything pulling it, and so I was confused; and the newspaper got pulled into the yard of The G House, and then it got pulled on the front porch of The G House.
I then partly saw my male cousin DE sitting on the front porch of The G House smoking and drinking beer, and he had a fishing pole that he had used to reel in the newspaper like he was too lazy to walk and get the newspaper himself and/or he was trying to stay hidden; and I remember this annoying me, and I was going to go tell my brother GC what I saw but the dream jumped to me being on a fictional television sitcom.
I was sitting at a circular dining room table inside a house with a family with whitish colored skin (a mother and her young daughter and her young son, an uncle, and another uncle who was the actor David Koechner) who were eating/drinking/talking, and it was probably the Christmas holidays.
I remember the family had a tradition where the kids used some fishing poles while sitting at the table, some gifts were put under the table, and the kids got to reel in a gift using the fishing poles; and after this I remember talking about some strong straight coffee, and Mr. Koechner challenged me to drink some straight coffee.
Mr. Koechner took a cup that he had used and he was going to put one small packet of straight concentrated liquid coffee that was in small individual packets in the cup and have me drink it, he ended up putting the coffee in a different cup with ice, and he gave it to me to drink; and I drank it and I could somewhat taste it, and it was not as strong as the coffee that I had told them about.
I won the challenge and I told them that this coffee was weaker than the one that I had talked about, they cheered and we laughed, and we continued having fun; but I woke up.
I think that this was a very long and detailed dream that I mostly slept through without waking up so I can not remember most of it now unfortunately, I think that the dream took place in a fictional city starting during the afternoon, and maybe I was staying at a hotel or motel; and maybe some of my family were/was as well.
I probably spent some time with my family before going to explore parts of the city on my own, I probably walked around the area near the hotel or motel, and there were several restaurants and businesses with restaurants and several other businesses in them like a casino and maybe some other types of businesses.
I went to one or more of these restaurants and businesses but I can not remember the many things that happened during this part of the dream, I just know that at some point I met the character Daryl Dixon from the television series The Walking Dead, and he was on a mission that possibly involved looking for someone or something; and I remember trying to help him.
I followed him around different restaurants and businesses, at some point I think that Daryl ruined things by confronting some of the people who ran the casino/restaurants/several businesses, and they seemed to be in the mafia or a gang; and there was possibly a fight or something, and the police were called.
I remember us escaping but now we or Daryl, I probably did not fight, having to worrying about the mafia/gang and the police looking for him or us; and so we went in separate ways, but I can not remember what happened during this part of the dream except for hiding and moving around a lot.
I possibly found Daryl hiding in a field at some point and I probably talked to him about how he had ruined things, I probably gave him some suggestions if he ever wanted to complete his mission successfully, and then maybe we started my plan; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
I barely remember part of one dream that took place during the day in what seemed to be the city of D, I was driving down the highway past Walmart when I saw Triple H and maybe his wife Stephanie McMahon standing on side of the highway next to their automobile, and it looked like their automobile had broken down; and so I stopped to help them.
Their automobile was broken down and so they asked for a ride but I can not remember where they wanted a ride to, and so I gave them a ride; and I remember mostly talking to Triple H as I drove, he told me that they were on their way to one of their wrestling events in another city, and we talked about other things as we continued driving in the same direction past/passed the shopping center near W Park but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
I am not sure if this is a separate dream or not but I will type it as one, all that I can remember of this dream is that I think that it possibly involved the video game Fallout 4 again, and I remember the dream involving custom weapons and/or unique weapons and/or legendary weapons.
One weapon was called The Blade Of Woe and another weapon was called The Blade Of Moe, but I can not remember the other weapons or the rest of this dream or part of this dream; and I woke up.
