Some background, I have a lot of nightmares but they are usually quite disjointed and fuzzy and don't really have a "story", the one I just had was
incredibly detailed, in full colour and I woke up from it a number of times and went straight back into it again as soon as I fell back to sleep, that
has never really happened before with any dream I've had.
There were so many details that part of the reason I'm writing this is just so I have a record before I forget them.
I was in my living room with my girlfriend and we started having a huge argument about her job until it got to the point where I said "Ok thats it
I'm leaving" and I put on my coat and went outside, I knew even in the dream that I wasn't actually leaving and that I was probably going to go out
and but her a gift
I stepped outside the house I found that rather then being in London I was in a very strange medieval looking city, it was all made from large Grey
stones, the buildings, the roads and there was a dock set right in the middle, in front of me was a market with run down looking wooden stalls filled
with food and antiques and things.
Somehow I went to an ATM (cash machine) that was perfectly normal and got £40 out of it,
Returning to the market I started buying things, I looked at one of the food stalls and all that was available was whole chicks still with the head
and legs that were either deep fried or boiled, I refused them.
I found a stall that was full of old military things and explained to the guy running it that my Grandad was in the Naval hospital in town and that's
why I was there, I bought LOADS of things but each thing costs only a penny or less and I bought stuff until I couldn't carry any more
Then suddenly e bell rang and the whole town stopped and we all walked towards the dock where they started having a recreation of a ww2 air battle but
with tiny miniature model planes and rockets
I went back to the house and started giving things to my girlfriend, some of the things I can remember were a wooden box full of brass movable
printing type faces but all of them had the same picture of a monkey on and a really impressive military jacket that was covered in spotted feathers,
In total there were about 50 things but my memory of what they were is starting to fade.
We then heard a noise and we found that the land lord of the place we were staying in was shoving his hand through the cat flap on the door and
trying to get in to steal everything
It wasn't funny in the dream though.
My girlfriend and I went outside together and for some reason everyone outside decided that sh was the reincarnation of some kind of Goddess, they
presented her with a little book full of clear plastic disks and told us that each disk was worth a HUGE amount of money. My girlfriend took us to a
jewellery shop but once inside the landlord came to us and said we had to fight him as was traditional but at that point I showed him a board game
that was on one of the shop shelves and he just sat down and started trying to work out the rules while I went to buy tons of diamonds and sapphires.
Thats all I can remember of it really although I'm sure there was much more detail then that. I know it sounds like some sort of amateur fiction, but
it was all in the dream.
Does anyone want to have a go at making some kind of sense of the jumble of nonsense for me?
