So, there I was, at work… standing next to a coworker as the Chef was yelling at him to make some broccoli-related recipe, but he didn’t know how to make it. He couldn’t ask the Chef, so he whispered to me for advice on how to make broccoli-whatever. As we were walking, we ran into the Chef, so I used some gesture to say, “Can’t talk infront of him, lets go to the butcher shop, and I will tell you how to make broccoli-whatever.” But the Chef yelled at him some more, so I went into the Butcher Shop alone… I walked passed the ovens… then down the hall way… turned left, and there I was, in the Butcher Shop.
Bit wait a damn minute, I am supposed to turn left into a smaller hallway, then left again to go into the Butcher Shop… Something about this reality was WRONG!
I read a little bit on lucid dreaming a few years ago, tried and failed to have one, then gave up. The basic idea involved in achieving lucid dreaming is to recognize when something around you is not normal, and use that as a signal that you are not experiencing reality, you are dreaming. If you can do this without waking up, then you can control your dream to an extent.
So, for example, You are walking along street, and the purple dinosaurs are all driving around normal-like. No problem, nothing wrong here… then you wake up, and you realize that purple dinosaurs should not be driving: You were dreaming! So the next time you see the purple dinosaurs, you realize that something is wrong, and you can lucid-dream.
So, back to me in the butcher shop, I knew there should be a second hallway, but it wasn’t there, so I realized that I was dreaming. I explained all this to the butcher, but he didn’t seem to care, he just mumbled incoherently. Then something odd, I felt myself rolling over in bed, with no control over the action. Very odd sensation. When that was done, I decided to go do something in my dream… I was going to to the Bakery to flirt with a girl I like. But as I turned around, my dream world turned black. I was lost and I didn’t know what to do.
I woke up.
Maybe tonight, I can try again. It was an entertaining experience, although too short.
