Yes, decades later I still have this dream.

Guilty.

That has actually never happened to me. Nor has the dream of being naked somewhere in public happened. Flying however, often.

LL - Glad I'm not the only one.

NYPinTA - never? I've had all kinds of variations of this dream. Flying sounds pretty cool. Way better than dreaming about the forgotten class you are going to fail, or having your teeth fall out.

I've had an off and on dream for years that has several versions.

One, though I'm a lawyer, it seems that I never graduated from undergrad. I go back and try with little succsess to get what ever class or two it is that I need to get the B.S. so that my J.D. is bona fide.

Second version. I'm in law school (though it isn't at the school I went to - rather it is my undergrad school). As it turns out, I'm always waiting form my grades. At this particular dream school they are posted at the Admin section of a building. I wander it a lot and never find my grades.

At this point, it turns out I remember that I don't find my grades because I never paid my tuition. Now I do a tizzy turn that I'm practicing law without a license.......

A couple of times I combined the dreams.

I think I'd rather have the naked one - it's a misdemeanor, I think.

I don't dream much anymore, I am usually so tired by the time I lie down that I fall into a deep slumber. I always liked the speed dreams though, the ones where your like... riding something really fast... horse, motorcycle... and you feel the coolness of the wind on your face and the wind in your hair and you are all innervated. Those dreams rock.

I would love to have a naked dream, they sound FUN.

But I have never drempt that my teeth are falling out or that I forgot to goto class. I like the comic tho, cute.

I had a nightmare earlier -around 11 p.m. -after I fell asleep in my recliner (pretty much the norm for me to do that) and I'm gonna have to do a post I think about that dream. Many of my dreams seem to involve my Mom -dead for almost 30 years now -or frequently other people who were part of my life but are now long gone, but I don't recall ever having a dream about anything to do with college or even high school, come to think of it.
And one other thing though -if you have a chance, here's book Mandy got last night at Barnes & Noble and I immediately thought of you when I saw the title and as I went through it. The book -"All Cats Have Aspperger Syndrome." You will love it!

I rarely remember my dreams, but I think I've had one similar to this.

All the damn time.

Funny, I never had that one...probably because I showed up in class stoned so often it all seemed like a dream anyway...

Dave - now I am wondering if (assuming I pass the board exams) I will have a new nightmare about not really being board certified. Ack!

Red - I don't have many dreams of going fast, except the ones where someone is trying to kill me so I run.

Jeni - I dream about my long dead father on a regular basis. I usually like those dreams and find it comforting to "spend time with him" that way.

Kat - I remember almost all of mine. They are pretty jumbled up and crazy.

Tiff - this seems to be a very common dream archetype. I wonder if we will all have these kind of dreams about work after we retire?

dr s - I was way too straight laced to show up for class stoned. Now after class, that was a different story!

Ive blogged about my topless dreams of being back in highschool. What I dont understand is why no one else cares that I was in school topless.

Last night I had a dream that I was floating in the ocean with someone else after we had to eject from some plane and as we got closer to land and were trying to get someone's attention, a shark attacked and bit my arm. Later I was in some hospital (in China of all places) and was getting ready to leave and was being extra careful with my arm that still really really hurt. I think I actually punched the shark to get it off me. Ever try and punch something in water? Like I'd be abel to hurt a shark! ha. Weird.
