So I’ve decided that since my weekends have been getting pretty busy lately, I won’t be posting dream updates on Saturdays or Sundays unless I have a really awesome dream, but I’ll still try and do a weekly update (though so far I’ve failed at that). So dreams will be Monday – Friday and a weekly update on Sunday or Monday. Depending. Now, on to last night’s dream.
Last night’s dream took place at Lincoln City, one of the major beach towns in Oregon, and I was there for the weekend with my best friend Kori. We were having a pretty awesome time, our hotel was right on the water so we spent most of our time actually one the beach and the weather and water was actually warm (something that never happens on the Oregon coast). So we were hanging out, having a great time and when the day was over we went up to our hotel room and started having this really deep conversation. He was talking about this girl he was dating and I was talking about my most recent ex (we’ll call him George). We were droning on and on while hanging out on the balcony of our hotel when I looked over and noticed that George was on the beach.
I started freaking the hell out. I didn’t want my ex to see me or Kori because George had a ton of issues with my bestie and I didn’t want to deal with any possible drama. So I run inside the room, pulling Kori behind me, and going into a huge rant wondering aloud why George was there, did he see me, and all that stuff. Kori tried to calm me down, but then we heard a knock at the door and of course, there’s my ex. Then, like an idiot, Kori lets him in along with some other guy that George brought with him.
So we all stood around the room awkwardly while Kori, always the social one, tried to strike up some conversation. He failed miserably at that. Feeling really uncomfortable, I left the room and went back out to the balcony, hoping to give the guys a hint to get the hell out, but then George followed me out. We both lean against the railing and I looked everywhere but his direction. He ended up striking up a really awkward after we stood in silence for a few minutes, but I ignored him and looked back at the beach.
And this is the where the dream starts getting weird.
Looking out at the water, all of a sudden these orcas start beaching themselves and the people on the beach run up to them to pet them and ooh and ahh, and when the orcas had enough, they shimmied themselves back into the water. I yelled for Kori to come see what was happening and we watched in awe as these animals forced themselves onto the beach just for the attention. As more people came onto the beach to pet the orcas, suddenly a bunch of great white sharks started beaching themselves too. Only instead of doing it for attention, they did it for snacks. They’d force themselves onto the beach, grab somebody, and then go right back into the ocean. I almost started laughing because the people on the beach didn’t know what to do, orcas were still beaching themselves and they wanted to pet them and play with them, but the sharks were coming in fast and stealthy.
So there we were, standing on the balcony, watching people scramble around trying to play with the orcas while avoiding being eaten by sharks, when suddenly George’s friend comes out, wanting to see what’s happening and accidentally pushes George off the balcony and into a tide pool below. I rush to where George was and look over the edge right as one of the great whites comes up and pulls him into the ocean. And this is where I woke up.
So yeah, it was a strange dream. It started off kind of sad and awkward and then ended in a total WTF.
