Nothing new and exciting is currently going on my life (which is awesome) so here is some reading material for you if you’re interested. It’s another dream I found typed up on my computer, from May of my freshman year. It’s pretty long (believe it or not, I edited it), so I divided it up into chapters.

Chapter I – In which I watch an episode of The Office and the characters deal with eerie household pests

I was watching The Office, and the episode didn’t take place in an actual office. It took place in a big house that Pam and two of the other ladies lived in together. They got up one morning and Pam saw these cockroaches everywhere, that blended in with their surroundings so well you could hardly see them. By the time the exterminater got there, the cockroaches were gone, and nobody really believed Pam that they had been there. Then one of the other ladies looked out the window and saw a rat with a braided tail run across the yard to a group of people dressed in hunting outfits. I had the feeling that maybe the rat had eaten the cockroaches. Somebody said that maybe everyone would have believed Pam if we had known what was about to happen. I wondered what was about to happen; it sounded very ominous.

Chapter II – In which a doppelganger family comes to take my grandma after crucial pieces of her bedroom are sold online

It was nighttime, and I saw my grandma (she looked like the grandma in My Big Fat Greek Wedding) going up to her room. I followed her. When we got to her room, the ceiling and the floor were gone, and you could see the stars. My grandma was mad that my mom had sold such crucial elements of her room on Ebay. She climbed out the window, which scared me, so I went after her. When she got to the bottom, we were in a courtyard. A little black boy wearing a plaid shirt suddenly ran across the courtyard, chased by a big dog, and he climbed up the way we had just come down, and disappeared into my grandma’s room. The instant he went in the window, an identical boy came running out of another door, chased by an identical dog. They both ran out of the courtyard. Then a line of people started coming in. It was a big family, which looked identical to mine. They were all carrying towels and clothes on hangers. The rest of my family came out into the courtyard, and our two families talked for a while, and my family was very surprised that this other identical family existed. The only difference was that they didn’t have a grandma and wanted ours. Everyone in the other family was holding a TV which started playing their favorite movie. Two members of the other family had Sleeping Beauty playing, and I told them that was my favorite movie too. I thought this had something to do with the disappearing cockroaches and the rat. I was the only one in my family who didn’t want to give away our grandma, but the other family was so sad, and I realized that my grandma wanted to go with them because her room with us didn’t have a floor or a roof. So I finally agreed to let her go with them.

Chapter III – A dweam wiffin a dweam

I dreamed in cartoon about two fish and a mass of bubbles. I was one of the fish, and I shot out my tongue and caught a fly. Then the mass of bubbles ate both of the fish. I woke up and realized it was a dream.

Chapter IV – In which I order a sub sandwich

The next morning I was talking with Mom about how wierd The Office had been, and she said that she had sold the floor and ceiling to our grandma’s room on Ebay because she was never home. I was trying to arrange my clothes and towels on a single hanger so it would look like how the people in the other family had their clothes. Then I went to a restaurant to meet Katie Baker and her friends for lunch, but nobody would let me look at a menu. After they ordered their food, I got up from the table and walked around. My brother was there, and he and I told a friend how weird it had been to meet another family that looked just like us. I went up to the counter to order, and since I didn’t know what was on the menu, the lady behind the counter recommended the sub sandwich because it came with a camcorder. I ordered that. While I was standing at the counter waiting for my food, I looked at the other people near the counter. There was a group of four blonde girls who I could tell weren’t related, but they were all extremely short. The tallest was under 3 feet. One of them was sitting or standing in a basket that went up to her neck. There was a girl crouching on the counter who had a little tail, and really short, fine white fur. A lady behind us yelled at everyone not to stare at the girl with the tail. I went back to Katie’s table and told them what I had ordered.
