Last night I only remembered one of my dreams, but I do know that the dreams that I can not remember exactly, were inspired by the movie City Of God; which I watched last night.

The dream I remember started with my family, my cousin DW, and I arriving by automobile to a field area near some trees.

My mom said that we came here to meet a house salesman that was going to show us a house that he was selling.

We did not see the salesman so we decided to walk toward the trees, to see if he was behind them.

The tree area had water puddles and was like a mini-jungle with vines, bushes, trees, etc.

As we were entering the tree area, I noticed a small green snake with a triangular-shaped head like a viper, it was near my mom’s foot in a water puddle.

I told my mom to watch out because there was a snake, so we all started to look around to make sure there were no more snakes, and suddenly we started to see more snakes.

Some were in water puddles, some were under leaves, and a few were on bushes.

Almost all of them looked poisonous, but like almost all my dreams with snakes, they did not bother us or try to bite us.

I grabbed a stick and started to hit the ground as we walked, so I could find the snakes easier, but suddenly a man in an automobile drove up near our automobiles.

The man got out of the automobile wearing body armor and a helmet like he was a riot police officer or something, that just left work.

He took off his helmet and put it into his automobile, and asked if we were the ones wanting to see the house that he was selling, we said yes.

The man then told us to follow him, and we walked through the mini-jungle which then led to a field and across the field there was a school.

On the other side of the school there was a nice two-story house made of brick with a nice large yard, the man said that was the house that he was selling.

The house salesman had brown hair, appeared to be in his 40’s, was a bit fat, and he acted somewhat annoying & un-trustworthy; he reminded me of some of the cheesy guys that you would see in a movie from the 70s.

Instead of walking around the school to get to the house, the house salesman lead us through the school area, he said that was a shortcut.

The house salesman did not seem to know where he was going and we started to get lost, but after a while we made it to a baseball field that was close to the yard of the house.

The house salesman was getting hot in his armor so he had taken most of it off at this point, and there was a fence around the baseball field, so we were going to have to climb it.

Some of the students were outside and helped us climb over the fence, and after that the house salesman was very tired & embarrassed.

The house salesman then fell on the ground and started to tell us the truth, he said that he did not really own that house and that he was just pretending that he owned it; to make himself seem to be successful.

He said that he used to be a classmate of my mom and that he used to like her, so he was hoping to impress her.

We were all shocked and just stood there wondering what to do or say, and then I woke up.
