Can anyone help me out in figuring a dream I had last night?
I dreamed the husband and I went grocery shopping. I don't recall how the dream began, but I do remember being in a dimly lit store trying to get
everything we needed. The shelves and products themselves were lit normally, everything was illuminated just fine. It's weird, there was no light
source, they were just illuminated. The isles themselves were dim. It was an oddly relaxing atmosphere, rather than creepy.
I remember going to the freezer section and trying to get some veggie burger packs. One of our kids is semi-vegetarian IRL, this isn't an uncommon RL
purchase. Anyway, I was trying to pick up the packages, and the package graphics and product name would change as soon as I blinked. I'd set it down
in the cart, and notice the change, and get frustrated, thinking "This isn't one she likes. I know that, dammit." I'd put it back on the freezer
shelf, and study them all to make sure I was getting the right one. Again, as soon as I blinked, the package would change entirely. I called for my
husband, because it was starting to weird me out. I told him "Just watch. Now, pick one to get. Go to pick it up, and blink." And it would change
for him, too. I'd see the package graphics morph at the same time he blinked. It was really eerie and very frustrating at that point.
We decided to not get the veggie burgers at this store, and went to get the rest of our items and leave. It started happening to other items. A jug of
local brand orange juice would morph into some national brand, like Minute Maid. One cut of meat would turn into a totally different one, real cheese
would morph into yellow plastic. We got very irritated, and started putting things back, because bleep this, we'll go somewhere else instead. Except
the things we put back would begin reappearing back in the cart a little later. We essentially couldn't empty the cart & return things to the shelves
because it would all end up right back in it. We left the cart in one isle, and made a freaked beeline for the door. As soon as we got close enough to
activate the auto open, we were suddenly inside a little neighborhood fruit & veg store. Now, let me just say I'd die to have something like that
IRL. Not like, say, The Fresh Market, but more like a very highly organized local farmer's market of only fruits and veggies. We went around the
tables and gathering as much as we could off of our shopping list, and asked where the nearest dry goods store was, and the nearest butcher, so we
could complete getting everything. When someone started giving us directions, one of our kids woke me up.
I'm not sure what to make of this dream. The nearest I can gather is that maybe it's my subconscious trying to tell me to finish cutting out the
processed foods? Or to aim more local for groceries than we already do? Or that I'm looking at food the wrong way? IDK, ideas?
