I don't seem to be remembering my dreams nearly as well as I once did.
Maybe I'm almost all dreamt out and there's simply less to remember?
In the last month there have been only about three mornings when I've awakened and still had a few lingering sleepy-time images bouncing around inside my head.
The first dream (May 11) involved my sister visiting me in college. She spent the night in a parking space in a parking garage - no car, just a mattress and a few blankets. Apparently that wasn't anything unusual for visitors to the college. If my sister thought it was strange, she hid it well. I myself seem to have had a bed in the narrow median of a nearby interstate....
The second dream (May 30) had me sitting in a grassy area in northern Ohio about an hour before sunset. It was a nice, calm day and I was all alone as cars whizzed down a busy road in the distance. I had my Nook with me (something I've never touched, let alone owned) and was using it to visit a website run by Michael Shermer. The part of the site I was visiting had a series of simple games or tests designed to sharpen or test your thinking skills. The page I was on featured a simple schematic diagram of the underside of an upright vacuum cleaner. Various parts were numbered and you were supposed to list the numbers in the order of importance - the number of the part that contributed the most to cleaning up dust and dirt was to be put first. I got the first number right (the sucky area around the beater) but in second place I stupidly put the number that went with a small square piece of black tape that was stuck to the bottom of the base for no good or obvious reason. Doh!
The third dream from just a couple days ago was less a dream than an image of a sticker. It featured a simple line drawing of a discarded banana skin along with the words "This is pretty slick!" Apparently it was the sort of thing teachers might put on a clever piece of student writing and NOT an entry like this one.
Is there a vitamin or some other nutritional supplement one can take to improve the frequency and/or entertainment value of one's dreams? I think I need to order some!
