This dream took place at a fictional version of W Park in the city of D, and some of my brothers and I went there late in the afternoon or early in the evening to maybe camp out over night.
My brothers and I walked around the park first looking for a good spot to camp, we found a fictional area across from where the tank should be, and then I remember a woman with light-color skin who was near the walking trail talking to me.
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.
Since someone gave me the SnoreDoc (TM) Advanced Anti-Snoring And Sleep Aid Device anti-snoring device I guess I have been sleeping better even though I still have not been getting enough sleep (going to bed too late, and having to wake up in the mornings for work) and I am no longer disturbing others with my snoring it seems, but I have noticed that it is harder for me to remember dreams now so far and they fade away very quickly (but there could be other factors involved and I have only been using it for a few days now, and so we will see).
Last night I woke up from or after a dream to use the bathroom, I got up without being still first, and my dreams quickly faded as I used the bathroom before I could voice record them so I went back to sleep.
I had one or more dreams but I went back to sleep and they faded, and so now I can barely remember part of one dream.
I am not sure if I was in this dream or not, there was a man who was possibly the main character, maybe I was this man or maybe I was just seeing this or maybe I was also there, but I can not remember.
This man, some women, and maybe a boy were inside what seemed like a bottling plant or a manufacturing plant of some kind.
There was something going on that I can not remember where they wanted to go somewhere, but they had to wait for someone so they were waiting on that person to arrive before they could go or something like that.
But that is all that I can remember of this dream.
Describe it in detail, and tell us why you think that experience was the one to stick with you.
And this is my response:
One of my earliest memories is probably a memory of when I was a kid living with my parent’s in The R Trailer and I left The R Trailer during the night without my parent’s knowing that I was gone when my mom’s side of the family was having a family gathering at my grandparent’s (my grandmother DE and my grandfather CE) house, I walked over to my grandparent’s house first and I saw some of my family members there having a good time and they probably said a few things to me, and then I walked over to my aunt ME’s house next door to The R Trailer for some unknown reason(s) (maybe I got lost and confused and/or I was looking for someone); and I remember my aunt ME, my cousin ME, and several other family members being there.
I remember one of my family members asking me where my parent’s were and if they knew where I was, they probably called my parent’s or walked me home or told me to go back home, and at some point I remember returning to The R Trailer to my parent’s who were surprised to learn that I had left without them knowing it.
I have no idea why this memory stuck with me exactly, maybe because I somewhat got lost and confused because of all the noise that my family members were making as they partied and because I never did anything like that before and because it was dark, but that is my wild guess.
I did not voice record any of my dreams from last night and so I forgot all of my dreams from last night except for barely part of my last dream which was very long and very unclear, but I will type what I remember of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is that a lot of the dream took place inside a fictional shopping mall during the day, I was inside the mall in a small narrow quiet section of a store, and there was a walkway that passed through the middle of this store that would take you through the store and into the rest of the mall.
I have no idea what I was doing there but I seemed to be waiting and/or looking for someone and/or something because I spent a lot of time looking around various aisles of the store like I was wasting time and waiting, and many things happened during this time that I can not remember.
I know that my mom and maybe some other people I know were in the dream briefly, I know that a lot of the dream was boring and realistic, and I know that some strange things happened during the dream that I can not remember.
During one part of the dream I remember finding a shelf that had some small chocolate candies covered in different colored pieces of foil, these chocolate candies had no price on them, and they seemed to be free treats for shoppers; and so I remember eating some and keeping some.
At some point in the dream it is possible that a man with a handgun entered the store, maybe there was a robbery or shooting or I and/or someone else managed to get the man to put the handgun away, but I can not remember; I just know that something strange happened, but I probably still did not leave the store because I still seemed to be waiting and/or looking for someone/something.
There is a lot more that happened in this dream before this and some things that happened after this, but that is all that I can remember at this time.
