Hanging Out With My Coworker TR In A Parking Lot

Dream 1

This dream took place during the day in an area that looked a lot like the street and parking lot where Kmart used to be in the city of D, and I was there with some people including my female coworker TR who were preparing and rehearsing for a parade it seemed.

At some point I left by automobile I assume with TR and an older woman with light-color skin, and we went to the older woman’s house.

The older woman looked like she could be a family member of TR, but I was not sure.

I remember us sitting and talking in the kitchen, I remember hearing a doorbell-like sound so I went to see who it was but no one was there so I returned to the kitchen to tell the others, and after that TR stood behind the older woman and TR grabbed her by her head and her hair and she started pulling her head / neck back in a maybe neck crank-like submission or something.

I was confused and was trying to figure out if TR was just playing around but she continued applying pressure and it looked like it hurt, and so I told her to stop.

The older woman then reversed it and she did the same thing to TR to my surprise, I was surprised by the older woman’s strength and skill, and this looked painful.

Like with the older woman, TR was trying to resist this, and this seemed to be some kind of competition for them.

The older woman appeared to be stronger than TR, but I told them to stop.

The older woman won I guess, then things went from serious to positive again as they joked, and TR said that the older woman was still stronger than her but that she almost won this time.

I then learned that the older woman was a family member of TR, and that this is a competition that they have been doing for years and that TR had never won yet.

But I woke up.

Dream 2

This dream took place in the same parking lot from the beginning of the previous dream except the parking lot was possibly raised higher from the ground because of a slight hill, and this time we were at the back of the parking lot where the building should be.

Once again my female coworker TR was there, and several other people were there too.

We were hanging out talking in and around our automobiles, and I remember us listening to music and the radio from one or more automobiles.

Of the music that we listened to I know that one or more of the songs were by Matchbox Twenty and / or Rob Thomas.

I also remember TR looking at two papers with records / information for multiple people on them, and TR said that this was going to be used in an upcoming wedding.

I think that the upcoming wedding was going to be her wedding but I am not sure, and I woke up.

The end,
