Stopping A Woman From Punching A Baby

I did not record the rest of my dreams so I forgot them, but I do remember the very end of my last dream that took place inside a room.

I was in the room with various people sitting at tables maybe watching a movie on a TV or something, and at some point I heard someone (maybe a woman) yell: “she is punching her baby!”.

Employees Stalling At A Taco Bell

I had more dreams but now I can only barely remember a few dream fragments.

Dream 1

I am not sure if this is a dream or just memories of what I did before going to sleep, but I remember comparing melee weapons in the video game Fallout 4.

Some of the weapons were Kremvh’s Tooth, Throatslicer, and the baseball bat fully upgraded with the shocking puncturing rocket mod.

Dream 2

The end of this dream took place during the day and I drove to the drive-through at a Taco Bell, and I ordered some food like maybe some kind of large rectangular tostada (tortilla) dish.

The employees that I remember seeing were all female and they kept stalling, and I noticed this in the dream.

Everything was taking too long even though there was no one in front of me or behind me, and they were not busy at all.

I kept noticing the gaps in time, and how they were stalling with each action.

This was possibly played out in the real world as well as I tried to get a bit more sleep by possibly waking up to check the time and going back to sleep each time.

But I woke up for good at some point without ever getting my food since they kept stalling (they even stalled while cooking and preparing the food).

This has happened one or more times recently where I have noticed gaps in time or whatever while dreaming / sleeping, and I wonder if this is because of a book about mindfulness that I am reading super slowly called Mindful Me: Mindfulness And Meditation For Kids by Whitney Stewart; part of the mindful me breathing exercises mention looking for the gap between breaths, and so maybe some of the breathing exercises that I have partly tried have increased my present-moment awareness a bit.

The end,
