I need to get better about writing down the dreams I actually remember, like the one where a group of burglars was trying to climb our building so Carin built a giant slingshot and used those biscuits that come with Popeyes Chicken to shoot them down. Every time she fired she’d gleefully sing the little Popeyes jingle to taunt them and to give the slingshot extra power.
Gill’s dream sounds more frightening than that, but I don’t know if it’s any more strange.
When I was a teenager I would have this recurring dream about a rotten banana chasing me. I thought about it last night, for some weird reason.
Usually, from what I remember of it, I would be walking briskly down a long hall when this freakishly large shadow would appear and start following me. I would pick up the pace, but not look behind me. Once I reached a turn in the hall I would look back and see this rotten banana following me. As I would pick up speed, my nemesis would become faster, bigger and more rotten, spilling rot on the ground. The banana would almost catch me, and I would wake up.
For a while I would not be able to look at over-ripe bananas, or even the fresh ones. I have no idea what brought this about.
What’s the strangest dream you’ve ever had?
