A Wise Man In A Tower? | Trying To Change Clothes Before Work

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I had more dreams and there was more to the dreams that I did remember part of, but I did not record them so I have forgotten some of them and some of these dreams.

Dream 1

This dream possibly involved Esperanto, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The end of this dream involved me and maybe several other people possibly being in another country in maybe a desert during the day, we were possibly in The Middle East or somewhere else with a Middle Eastern look to it, and maybe there was a man with light-color skin possibly wearing a military uniform (maybe an American soldier (possibly a general or another officer rank)) who was possibly giving us a brief history of this area and the people and the place and person we were about to meet.

We walked toward an area in the desert where there was a tower with a line of men wearing mostly tan Middle Eastern military uniforms who were in two lines so you had to walk between their lines to reach the tower, many of the men looked the same, and there were several different groups who looked the same so it was like 6 or more different appearances with several copies of each of those appearances with each group having slightly different uniforms and hair styles and facial hair and each group possibly represented a different country in The Middle East but I have no idea.

The man told us that you had to walk between the men to the tower, at the top of the tower was a wise man or leader or someone who would see people one-at-a-time so you would wait your turn, and we were told that the men would keep saying a chant or greeting or something every few seconds as you walked past them as part of some tradition or something.

Walking through the men was a bit creepy and awkward as they would chant or say their greetings or whatever every few seconds in unison with straight faces as they looked straight ahead as they stood in formation, I would say hello sometimes as I passed them, and eventually we reached the tower and we walked into the entrance area by the stairs to wait our turn.

A person was walking down to let the next person in front of us know that it was their turn to see the wise man or leader or whoever, I heard the wise man or leader or whoever say that the next person could come, and then that person started walking up the stairs.

It would be our turn next, but I am not sure why we were there.

But I woke up.

Dream 3

The end of this dream took place during the day and I was driving back from another city with my dad and maybe my mom, I realized that I needed to get back to work, and so at some point I asked my dad if I could drive his truck to work because we did not have my automobile with us at the time and he said yes so I drove his truck to work while they continued on wherever.

I parked across the street from The BP Library where I work, I looked in my dad’s truck’s window to see that I had more hair than I have had in years and it looked wild and needed to be combed, and I realized that I was wearing a red University Of LL T-shirt and blue jeans instead of my work clothes so I decided to drive home quickly to change clothes (my shirt at least) and comb my hair so that it would not look so wild.

I drove to a nice fictional one-story house in a nice middle class-to-upper class neighborhood, and I went inside the house and I walked to the left of the house and I changed my shirt and I grabbed my Unbreakable black plastic comb that I have not needed to use in years and I started combing my hair.

While doing this something unclear happened that involved a movie (either this was a daydream or was on television or somehow went on during the dream) with Richard Madden, another man with light-color, and a woman who were all friends.

The second man had recently experienced a break-up with his girlfriend and was sad, and so Mr. Madden and the woman tried to cheer him up and encourage him but then this ended as I went to leave.

Something else strange possibly happened where as I walked through the house to leave I noticed a creepy man with light-color skin in the corner of my eyes who had sneaked into my house, and somehow something confusing and unclear happened where maybe: I either left the dream (possibly briefly, it was like I was there, but maybe I could not be seen) and was replaced by a woman with light-color skin or somehow we separated into two different people and / or I became her briefly at some point and / or something else confusing but I am not sure.

I just know that the creepy man was possibly an ex-boyfriend or someone who used to like the woman and maybe she had turned him down or broke up with him, and so maybe he was there for revenge or something but I can not remember.

The doorbell rang and so the woman went to answer it, and at the door were children and adults from the neighborhood who said that it was Halloween and they were trick-or-treating and had come for candy.

The woman and / or I were confused, we had no idea it was Halloween and she told them so, and the woman then told them about the creepy man and asked them to call the police.

But I woke up as she and / or we tried to figure out what to do in the mean time.

Shopping With My Dad And Babysitting A Boy?

I had more dreams and there was more to this dream but I did not voice record my dreams, and so I forgot most of my dreams.

Dream

This dream took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of the city of D, some parts of the dream possibly took place at a park, but I can not remember.

A Female Auto Mechanic?

Source: Wikimedia Commons

All that I can remember of this dream is that it was evening and I was in my dad’s automobile with my nephew CC and a woman with light-color skin with curly dark-color hair who was possibly an auto mechanic.

I think that I was driving the woman home after she did some work on my dad’s automobile, and then maybe I was going to drive my nephew CC home.

When we were driving on the street that The E House is on, we started to have a problem with my dad’s automobile, and so I pulled over to the grass and I popped the hood and the woman started checking it to see what the problem was.

At some point the woman found what she thought might be the problem and she told me to drive to an automobile parts store that was in a fictional area where the N Auto Parts Store used to be, and she had me take a back route that crossed a fictional area where the trail behind the house in front of The E House should be.

There was grass and trees and a clearing like a nice narrow park, at the end of it was the auto parts store, and the auto parts store was about to close soon so I held my toddler nephew CC while the woman went inside to buy the auto part that she needed to change.

The woman was the confident strong independent practical type and she seemed to know a lot about automobiles, I was impressed with her, and I was interested in learning more about her and learning from her.

The woman entered the store from the back through the employee’s only storage-like area, there were at least two male employee’s in this area who had light-color skin and one of them was a bald man who looked a bit dangerous and I got negative vibes from him and I felt that he probably had racist beliefs.

At some point I entered the employees area carrying my nephew CC to wait on the woman there, I saw her in the store area waiting for the maybe manager or owner (who was a somewhat older man with light-color skin with graying hair who was wearing a short-sleeve button shirt) to probably get the auto part that she needed, and I let the workers know what I was doing.

The dangerous racist-looking employee did not respond and he just glanced at me with a dangerous negative-neutral facial expression as he probably smoked a cigarette, I continued waiting but I kept an eye on him because I did not like or trust him so far, and so I started to prepare myself in case I needed to defend myself and my nephew CC and the woman.

At some point I could not see the woman anymore as I waited, and people started showing up outside and inside the building like a fair-like event was taking place and it was night now.

There was food, drinks, music, dancing, booths, et cetera now.

At some point I called my mom on my mobile phone to tell her about the situation, and she showed up at some point so I put my nephew CC down so that he could walk while she watched him.

There was one or two women with dark-color skin with black hair who brought some kids with them who were mostly girls with dark-color skin with black hair, and at some point my nephew CC pulled one of the girl’s hair from behind and a fake hair extension or whatever was pulled off.

I apologized and I picked it up and I gave it to one of the women, the woman was angry, and she yelled at us and insulted us until we walked into another room at some point as she continued her rant.

Somehow part of the building had a waiting room now and a small diner / bar / restaurant-like area, and so there were some people in the waiting room with us and some in the restaurant-like area waiting in line or sitting down.

At some point I noticed some of my former classmates sitting on both sides of some bar seating next to the line of people, they were having a good time, and they noticed me and they asked me to join them so I did.

We all happily greeted each other and we started having a good time until I told them that I needed to go, and we said goodbye.

I decided to walk into the auto parts store and look for the assumed female auto mechanic and ask the workers if they knew where she was, but she was not in the auto parts store and they did not know where she went.

So I told my mom and she started walking around asking people if they had seen the woman, and I walked around outside looking for her.

She was not in my dad’s automobile but I did not look to see if she had put the auto part inside of it, I assumed that she probably walked home when she did not see us or something, and I hoped that she did not buy the auto part and leave with it to rip us off or something.

We still could not find the woman so I told my mom that we should call my dad to see if he could call the woman to find out what was going on, but I woke up.

My Brother CC Needs To Lose Some Muscle Mass Because Of A Military Rule

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it involved some of my family, some of my family members, and I going to the doctor’s office of a doctor we knew so that we could hopefully get a free medical checkup because we knew the doctor.

I remember us waiting to see the doctor we knew and at some point we saw him talking with some people in the waiting room with us and some of his female nurses, and he stopped to talk with us and at first I think that the doctor was the professional basketball player Shaquille O’Neal but eventually he probably changed into my male cousin EE without me noticing the change.

We told him why we were there, there were other people around so at first he did not want them to know that he was going to give us medical checkups for free, but then he changed his mind saying that we were family (because he was my cousin EE now) so he told his nurses to mark in the system that our full medical checkups would be free.

He then went to do our full free medical checkups one-at-a-time, but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day inside a barber shop and/or hair salon, Kim Kardashian and some of her family and maybe a film crew were there as a male barber and/or hairdresser was shaving Kim’s face and giving her a haircut and/or styling her hair et cetera as Kim sat in his chair as her family watched and the film crew filmed it as they talked; and that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during a nice sunny day, I remember walking near The G House between the house and where the garden used to be, and to my surprise I saw my brother CC and my sister-in-law JC and my new baby nephew CC and several young women who were probably family members of my sister-in-law JC sitting and talking (not my nephew CC because he is just a baby) in front of the gate that leads to the boat port (garage) at The E House.

At first I thought that I was imagining things or hallucinating or something because no one had mentioned that they were going to visit and it made no sense because they live so far away, also they did not seem to see me, and so at first I stood there thinking to myself thinking that they were not real.

I even waved at them but none of them were looking at me except my baby nephew CC seemed to be looking in my direction almost but I was not sure if he was looking at me or not, and his eyes seemed very dark oddly but I assumed that it was just a baby thing as their bodies are still developing and the distance and a trick of the outdoor light and shade making his eyes looks so dark and maybe completely dark which I imagined would scare some people but I did not feel anything negative or evil really but I thought that maybe some other people might if this was not a trick of light and shade and distance or a baby thing.

After standing there thinking that they were not real I eventually started to realize that they were really there so I walked over to talk with them and see my new baby nephew CC in person for the first time (I can not remember if my nephew CC’s eyes looked normal or not once I got closer, but I do remember him smiling and looking happy and cute and somewhat like me when I was a baby), and then the others left almost immediately after I approached while I talked with my brother CC alone.

My brother CC and I do not keep in touch much really oddly and sadly so I did not really know what to talk about, and so I felt awkward at first.

My brother CC told me that he was trying to lose a certain amount of muscle mass and weight because the military said that he was too muscular now (he was already in the military, but was even more muscular now after at least two years of training and active duty) they were going to be doing military exercises with another allied country’s military, and they had a rule where you could not be too muscular and heavy to help avoid embarrassing ally soldiers who are less muscular and lighter or something odd like that (I guess they did not want some ally soldiers being embarrassed that they are not as muscular or something silly like that).

My brother CC had gotten even more muscular from working out in the military so now the soldiers over him had him on a special workout and diet plan involving more cardio and less weight lifting and a special diet, and he was telling me about this and about the soldiers training him to lose muscle mass.

One of the soldiers training him was a man with white skin who had him doing a lot of endurance exercises, he told me about him and the exercises which involved a lot of running, and he told me how much muscle mass and weight he has lost so far and what his end goal was.

I thought that this entire situation was a bit strange and ridiculous, he was taking it seriously and you could see that he was losing muscle mass and weight probably too quickly, and I worried about his health and I told him so.

I wondered if this military rule was part of some of the new overly sensitive and sheltering cultural movements going on, but I woke up as I thought about this and as I enjoyed finally getting to talk with my brother CC and that I got to see my new nephew CC in person for the first time.

The end,
