I have other dream categories, most based on my overconsumption of media. Sitcom dreams include television actors and come with their own laugh track. I am never old in sitcom dreams – a perpetual member of the Friends cast. And my house is always neat and beautifully decorated. I have woken up laughing many times after sitcom dreams.
My favorite dream category is the action/adventure (which is ironic because that’s not my favorite entertainment genre.) Action/adventure dreams seem to go on for hours and hours. I do a lot of running in these dreams, have great balance, and can jump really far. Action/adventure dreams occasionally feature famous actors, and a great soundtrack There’s usually a mystery involved, which is never resolved before the alarm clock sounds. On rare occasions, I can snooze myself back into the dream and see it to its conclusion.
The worst are work dreams, and getting ready for work dreams. Waking up from what seemed like a crappy and full day’s work, only to have to get up and go to work is depressing. Getting ready for work dreams sometimes involved perilous or embarrassing toilet and shower scenes, followed by make-up and wardrobe. I hate waking up and having to do it all over again.
