Dream, Interrupted

This morning before I woke up I was having the nicest dream.

It seems my family (none of whom I now recognise) was sheltering a new superhero - not a surprise since my friend was Lois Lane and she was seriously in love with Superman - in fact they were now a public couple. This new guy didn't have his super-persona figured out yet, and I don't know what his superpowers were supposed to be, but he was certainly special. And he was super-cute...!

We realised we liked each other immensely, so one day as I was sitting on the sofa, he walked up to me and kissed me partly on the cheek, partly on the lips, but I shifted! We were both slightly taken by surprise, especially as he'd never been kissed before and I was only slightly ahead of him. (It was niiiiiice. I had forgotten what that was like!)
No words were spoken in this dream, everything was implicitly understood. We were in love.

Next day he was around again and we were left in the kitchen. Another kiss. That was it - I took his hand, checked both ways and sneaking quietly behind my father in the living room, we went up the stairs. Just as I opened my bedroom door...

THE BLASTED PHONE RANG!

I talked, hung up, and flopped back down, head in hands, groaning, "Oh I was sooo gonna score!" Yep, in my dreams...

The story of my life. Always an almost.

I used to have dreams like that all the time, and they'd all go into my diary! With those dreams at least you wake up feeling lovey-dovey and mellow instead of feeling paranoid or depressed, as with nightmares...

Gives you a reason to look forward to sleeping and dreaming, doesn't it? :)

Here's a thought. Let the phone ring. Leave it. Focus on what's important and let the minor details take care of themselves...

Anonanon - you know I need this dream, but it was a very important phone call regarding that gallery app I talked about.

Because I was aware of wanting to remember my dreams, I had many last night but they were all nonsense and quite disturbing.

lol! everyone I know seems to have nice dreams, I tend to sleep to a point just before they start then wake up, and if you had dreams like mine you would too lol! My brain doesn't like me I think.

Jia Li - thanks for visiting my blog, this is for you:

I got the big variety gift box thing for a friends birthday last year. i am not a huge choc person but - OH MY GOD! That pretty much sums it up.

Olivia said...

Matt - Oh how disappointing that is about your brain.

HA! By doing that you are now Jia Li's bestest ever friend!

Olivia I did too come here yesterday to read your dream! These kinds of dreams are of course ALWAYS interrupted otherwise life would be fair(er). My thoughts on it are though that it's gonna be hard finding a super hero AND one who is a virgin too! Watching x-man I can say that had I come across that sex beast of Wolverine I would have THROWN myself at him! DROOL. No but seriously, and of course I know you know that, men so very rarely are super heroes. As you know I adore my Nick and I am so happy with him but accepting that he is not what I had dreamed of when I was a lil girl is kinda part of the deal. But, and this is the clincher, he is a good man and he (other than my exes) treats me with nothing but love. I do think that can be had by normal flawed human beings and I am sure you will find it one day. :o)

PS: Besides, I would so much rather be a man's last lover rather than the first.

Olivia said...

In reality, Rox, I don't want a superhero, I just want someone to accept me for the waifish and gamine thing that I am. Of course we all want to be the last lover...

Consider yourself blessed to have found Nick. I hope you are his last!
