Have you ever had a recurring dream/nightmare? Tell.
Yep, yep, yep. I’m backstage at a live performance. I have the lead role, and I’m in my costume and the show is already underway. The stage manager whispers to me, “OK, you’re on!” Then I turn to him and tell him I’ve never heard of this show before, I don’t know any of the songs or any of the lines or blocking. I don’t know the other cast members. What am I gonna do?! Then my teeth fall out.
Garsh Old Milwaukee! Stage angst :)))
My dreams are usually of the being late kind. When I was teaching I would dream that I was late to school and my kids all came into my bedroom to wake me up. Now it’s dreams of being horribly late to work and it’s dark out and I still have to sort the mail and get it delivered!
I don’t remember ever having any performance kind of dreams like yours but then I am not a stage diva, I am more of a pit crew kind of gal that makes funny sounds through her trumpet to make the cast laugh in serious parts. Not really, that was trumpet player number 2..really!
You know, I’ve had some doozie dreams & nightmares over the 39 years I’ve been on this earth (*cough*), but I can honestly say that I’ve not really had that same sort of recurring nightmare or dream. Or at least that I can recall at this moment.
Is that good or bad??
That means you’re normal. LOL
PS – thanks for the website suggestions — I’m on it! Love you.
Almost the same exact dream as yours except that it’s a dance recital, I smoke a cigarette (which I’ve never done in my life and think is a disgusting habit), THEN my teeth fall out. Weird.
HA – I’m seeing a thread here, Lori.
It’s been a long time since, but when I was in college, the last semester if I recall, I kept having the same panic type dream that I had registered for a math class, then forgot and never went to class. I would wake up in a panic that I was missing this class and wouldn’t graduate…the dream seemed so real!
I too have had dreams where my students called my house because I overslept! We must have some major neuroses, Steve-o. Probably wouldn’t surprise either of us, ja???
I literally have the “teeth falling out” dream once a week.
Recently I dreamed that I was to officate a wedding. However, I couldn’t find my suit, shirt and tie, so showed up at the wedding in my PJs. Then, I couldn’t find the wedding ceremony to use, so had to wing it. That was a catastrophe, beginning with the fact that I couldn’t remember than names of the bride and the groom. I don’t remember how the dream ended, but fortunately it did.
Now that’s a bonafide nightmare, friend.
I have some really weird ones, but none that recur. There are usually some band camp night terrors about a week before when there is still a bunch of drill to get done, though.
Isn’t it funny how we all (well, except BoomR, the only normal one!) had/have nightmares about unpreparedness, embarrassment and catastrophe? I know people make a career out of studying this, so the research results are out there. I wonder if it’s as easy as it seems to pinpoint the cause.
Or maybe we’re the normal ones and BoomR…
During football season especially, I would have dreams that I was at a game, right before the half time show, and I would be asleep on the stands. I would wake up on the stands to have everyone mad at me, then I would wake up and sit up in my bed and realize it was all a dream, and then go back to the same dream.
I’ve had a dream every so often where I’m back in college and it’s finals week. I’m scheduled for a final at a certain time and keep getting sidetracked while getting there. When I finally arrive, the exam has been moved to a different room and I’m not able to locate the room!
I haven’t missed a day yet – so better a day late than never!!!!
I don’t really remember many of the dreams I have and I’ don’t remember any repeats! Wonder what research would say about that….guess I’m pretty boring in the dream department!
HA – I just saw these this morning. CM, you’re the exception — seems like you’ve got it all together, compared to the rest of us froot loops.
