So I went to Six Flags Fiesta yesterday and rode in probably the first legit roller coasters of my life x 10. Came back absolutely tired and fell asleep watching the SNF game. Who won again? Anyways, I managed to cart myself to my bed during half-time meaning that I went to sleep just past 9pm. A record of sorts perhaps.
And then I had the weirdest dream ever–almost Inception like. Of course I don’t remember it now. But it involved some sort of train-eating machine. That’s the only thing I really remember about the content of the dream. But the weird thing is that I “woke up” in the dream, but I was still in a dream. Dream within a dream, baby! Yep, I woke up in my dream and it was morning and I was apparently in Mumbai and my sister happened to be there so she asked me what my dream was about. I couldn’t explain it so I thought it would be better that I went back to sleep and re-dream the dream and then she could somehow figure out what was going on (apparently I was narrating my dream aloud this time–kinda like a director’s cut).
So then, in my dream, I went back to sleep and re-dreamt my dream and it was crazy because it seemed like it was pretty much the same dream I had dreamt before. I don’t think I’ve ever had that before, which is weird because I guess it means that when you’re in a dream, the contents of your dream, even if they’re a dream-within-a-dream are still completely browsable. Kinda cool.
Anyways, this is the first time that has happened to me (being able to re-dream a dream while dreaming) so I thought it was kinda cool. It’s probably the first time I’ve had a dream-within-a-dream since watching Inception. Didn’t know life could be so exciting when I went to bed at 9 rode on roller-coasters.
