bizarre dream...

So, I had this really bizarre dream Sunday night, which has haunted me ever since.

I was hanging out with Jack and Larry, and for some reason we decided that cutting ourselves in half would be really really cool. I mean, it *really* sounded like a great idea at the time. So I did so, slicing myself as directed diagonally across the torso so that I was bifurcated in a way to lose my left limbs, but retain most of my chest.

The next thing I know, I wake up (still in the dream) and think back on my night. Then I realized that I'm only half of me, and panic... how am I supposed to walk? How am I supposed to work? How am I supposed to ... do anything really??? WHY DID THIS SOUND LIKE SUCH A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME???? I am seriously panicking in my dream, trying to figure out if there's a way that I can find the other half of me and put it back on... what hospital miracles could save me!!!

And I realized that there was no hope, and I had done something extraordinarily stupid and there was no way to undo it. And then the despair started to set in.

And that's when I woke up. For real. I checked, and yes, I still had both my halves, phew! But I really have to wonder two things:

1) Why was I dreaming about making such a phenomenally bad decision? Like, seriously, what am I worried about that I had to dream about bifurcating myself?

2) Even in dream-verse... What on earth made that sound like a good decision at the time????

Current Mood: quixoticquixotic

um, because cutting off your right limbs would have been just all sorts of wrong?

that kind of dream leaves me feeling weird for days.

Maybe your subconscious was looking for a reason to use bifurcate repeatedly?
