For those reading this who might not know yet. My wife Christina and I are expecting our first child this November.
I was talking with Christina recently about the fact I’ve been having a bunch of what could be described as “weird” dreams. She told me she read online that it’s fairly common for expecting parents to experience frequent and lucid dreams leading up to the baby’s birth. I guess that is somewhat comforting to know I’m not the first to experience this. If the dreams are in fact caused for that reason?
This past weekend I had a dream that I felt was blog worthy.
I’ll introduce this to you by saying I have no idea what this dream means. And I have absolutely no clue as to why some very notable celebrities make a cameo. So if any of you readers have a guess as to any who/what/where/why’s, please feel free to try to debunk the reasons behind this dream.
I’m in an abnormally long hallway. It’s very dark. The hallway would be pitch black if it wasn’t for a dim light at the end of this hallway. So I start walking towards the light. As I get closer to the light I can hear someone talking. I notice there is a door that isn’t completely closed. And both the light and sound seem to be coming from a TV inside the room. I slowly open the door and walk in.
At first I didn’t see anyone in the room. As I look at the TV to see what’s on I hear someone behind me say, “Hey”! I quickly turn my head to see that Brad Pitt and some woman are sitting there. I guess they were enjoying a movie night? Brad Pitt stands up and hastily asks, “What are you doing in my house”?
“I don’t know”, I said.
“Well, you’re gonna have to leave”.
“You can’t stay here”, he said.
I take a step back towards the door and the floor seems unstable. It’s weird. Like I’m standing on a water-bed. I said something to Brad Pitt about it. He gets worried, but seems to know exactly why the floor is absorbing water.
“I gotta go down to the 4th floor and check the laundry room”.
“Something’s not right”, he said.
I go into the hallway again.
This time, a hallway light is on. This time, I see something I would have never ever expected to see anywhere, let alone on a floor in Brad Pitt’s house that apparently is higher than the 4th floor.
Brad Pitt is long gone. No idea where he went.
I put my hand out and just as I was about to touch the batmobile I hear a sudden ruckus. The ruckus – three people running at me yelling a mixture of “no”, “stop”, and “don’t do that”.
I stop. They get closer. Then all three make it to me, out of breath from running and bickering with each other. I recognize these people.
Skinny Val Kilmer, who played Batman in Batman Forever.
George Clooney, who played Batman in Batman & Robin.
Nicolas Cage, who thankfully had nothing to do with any Batman movie.
All 3 actors were yelling at me to stop. Each thought they had priority, over me and one another, as to who should drive the batmobile. But the next thing I know – I’m in the batmobile. Bad news. There isn’t anywhere to drive it.
I put the batmobile into neutral, it drifts about 3 inches before the tip of the car hits the wall and I come to a stop. I hop out.
Brad Pitt is back. He’s semi-yelling at these three other chuckle-heads when all 5 of us hear a fairly loud sound. We all go down to the first floor hoping to figure out what made the noise.
The first floor is one huge room. No furniture. It’s warehouse like in size and style. My first feeling is that Brad Pitt could easily fit like 1,000 people in this room.
I approach a small staircase. Standing at the top of the stairs, I can see Brad Pitt’s front door at the bottom, that’s it. Nothing terrible. As I walk away from the top of the stairs I see a small sledge-hammer. I grab it. Then Nicolas Cage said he saw a zombie in the corner near the stairs I just walked away from. And he’s right! I turn and there is a zombie right behind me.
Thinking the sledge-hammer was kinda heavy, I didn’t swing it that hard at the zombie knowing the impact would be great. I was wrong. It didn’t stop this zombie. So I hit it again, but harder this time. This time I stopped it.
Next thing I know – hundreds of people burst through Brad Pitt’s front door.
They were looking for a staging area/shelter to prepare for the next wave of zombies in the area. My brother Brian somehow finds me in the mass of people and says I should come with him. He said that he and SB have something for me. When we find SB he’s standing next to a collection of two-piece pool cues.
With a big grin on his face, SB says, “These puppies are great for killing zombies”.
“You can keep a distance as you take’em out”.
I grab two pieces and start screwing them together. The pieces aren’t quite tight yet when Brian told me to test it out. Somehow a zombie found me out of all these hundreds of people in this huge warehouse of a room.
I take a swing, and take out the zombie. The pool cue broke since it wasn’t tightened all the way.
With a grin on my face, I look at SB and say something to the effect of:
“Let’s brace these cues, we’ve got work to do”.
That’s when I woke up…
Please, if anyone could put these pieces together and clue me in on any reasons why I had this dream, let me know. The dream has intrigue, but I think the analysis could be even more intriguing.
