New Greatest Dream Ever

My ability to dream the craziest dreams comes from my mother. If you think my dreams are wacky, spend a few minutes with her and you'll realize how unbizarre mine become.

However, the other night I had one of my funniest dreams. But first the preface: recently, a friend of mine related her dream to me. In her dream, she was making out with a B-list celebrity, and enjoying it quite a lot. Upon awakening, she didn't feel that she could share this dream with her husband, so instead, she shared it with me.

Now my dream: I actually had a dream within a dream. So the dream-within-the-dream was that I was making out with Will Smith. (C and I had recently seen an episode of "Fresh Prince of Bel Air," and I had commented on how pleased I was with the actor he grew up to be.) I enjoyed this making out so much that when I "woke" from my dream-within-the-dream, I started becoming amorous with C. Thinking he could handle the competition of Will Smith, I told him. This was not wise. He thought I was only enjoying him because I was coming off a "Will high." Of course this wasn't true, but I couldn't convince him otherwise. In the next scene of the dream, C and I are running with Bruno (running with Bruno, now that's funny). We start talking about my dream and C is getting even angrier. I can't understand why a dream would make him so angry, but it did. He eventually runs off ahead of me, yelling things like "Screw you!" and other like mean-things. I, of course, am left bawling with Bruno wondering what I am going to do--my husband just left me. (I will note that in the dream I did flip him off as he's running away. That kinda felt good.)

So what happens? I wake up bawling, of course! C does a good job comforting and consoling me. When I am finally composed enough to talk about it, I just start laughing. I realize the hilarity of it, but I was laughing through tears for sure.
