Let Me Tell You About This Crazy Dream I Had...

Updated on December 13, 2019

Laughter, having and holding onto our sense of humor, really IS the best medicine!

So, about this dream...

Last night after watching 'The Voice', perusing a few articles, commenting and reacting to some funny stuff on FB, I made my way to HubPages to respond to a couple of comments on my latest article, before calling it a day.

The very last thing I wrote, before heading to bed:

”Good luck getting this interview!
Hope his people get back with your people! :) “

This had to be it, had to be the trigger for the crazy, crazy dream I dreamed, which I must have dreamed either right after falling asleep or right before waking up, because I remember details and that’s very unusual.

It was either that or the fact that it was a Monday, back to work, after taking a few days off for rest and relaxation; good food, bad food, too much food and drink, too relaxed...

Whatever the case, in this dream; a friend and colleague, here at HubPages, informed us all that she would be receiving an Award {for what, nobody knows, no one asked and she didn’t offer up any details!}

An outstanding interview?

Perhaps.

(hint...hint)

I elected to make the trip to the Award presentation to offer my support.

Not sure where the presentation was located, what it was all about or how I got there, but suddenly, through the magic of dreams, I was there!

Hopefully, dressed appropriately; at the very least, hopefully, dressed!

It was then announced that the Master of Ceremony for the night would be, Burt Reynolds.

( I know, I know, right?)

When I got wind of this, I didn’t say out loud, I didn't say to myself nor did I even think to say to myself, “Oh, but he’s dead”.

Au contraire!

I left my perfectly good seat (not in the nosebleed section for a change) to seek out Burt Reynolds; to shake his hand, get a picture, an autograph, check for a pulse....

Who knows. I was on the move!

My friend and colleague, here at Hubpages, knew that I had made the trip in order to support her, as she received this special ‘Award’; for what, still a mystery, but suddenly and without warning, I had disappeared!

(Yes I feel guilty about that)

I remember a guy with a booming radio-type voice, making announcements, it was probably Paul Harvey, who knows in this crazy, crazy dream. At any rate, it was a man’s voice and it slowly and gradually faded away, as I wandered off.....



I missed the whole thing, whatever it was

While I was out and about, searching for Burt Reynolds.....I got lost, very lost, didn’t even recognize the Country I was in, much less the street I was standing in the middle of!

After wandering aimlessly, I began a search for a restroom, that had doors...um hum...couldn’t find one. There weren't any people to ask where a bathroom...with a door, might be.

Passed on that thought.

Good thing, because I was in a deep R.E.M. coma-like sleep!

Kept walking, for what seemed like days, somehow made my way back to where the Awards Ceremony was taking place, but it had concluded.

Everyone had cleared out.

There was not a single person in sight, not even the appearance of a clean-up crew. There's always supposed to be someone to say, oh it's over or you missed it or something enlightening like that.

So why were the doors open?

Whatever, I had missed the whole thing!

It was then, that I woke up!

What is it with dreams?

Naturally, I prefer a dream over a nightmare, but they are often so real, you may wake up with feelings of anxiety, of anger or of sadness.

I really do have feelings of guilt for ditching my HP colleague and going on a selfish, wild goose chase.

This morning I feel the need to apologize, of course, that’s just silly, it was a dream, but I do feel better having shared it with you all, so this must suffice.

I shared my dream with my husband, first thing this morning and after he looked at me like I was crazy (not the first time) suggested with a somewhat judgmental tone, “that I might want to keep this one to myself.”

      I'm sorry to break it to you like this Paula. :( Yes, he died about a year ago, so why was he in my dream? Although I never caught up with him, he was a big part of it, wouldn't you say? After all, he is responsible for making me miss seeing Shan get her big award...LOL...this is some crazy stuff, I know!!!

      Hubby is fun, just much more reserved than I. We work it out!

      LOL...."Crazy," is a good description. I'd like to know why you went traipsing about to seek out Burt. He probably would have signed autographs after the ceremony!! LOL See, when we dream, we're suppose to make things convenient, Angie! But here's the kicker for me! I lost all ability to follow your story because I had NO IDEA Burt Reynolds died! Honestly......talk about being in the dark! Really, what a shock you gave me. Not one word do I recall hearing about this fact!

      After your interesting dream and helping me come out from under a rock....I certainly hope the "mystery" person receives that award!! She deserves it! What a trip!!

      Your husband must be a lot of fun!

      Nope, sadly, no Burt!

      Thank you Shannon for the compliment and for the material.

      Oh, I thought you'd at least caught a glimpse of him. Sneaky man. Shame on him!

      I rarely remember my dreams either. But when I do, it's always the wild ones. Makes a great article. File it right under humor and you're good to go. LOL. Plus, like Eric, I enjoyed the way you told it.

      Shannon, sadly, I never found him, but I will always remember him as 'The Bandit' or his character in 'Deliverance'. Young and handsome!

      Thank you Eric, I am amazed that I was able to remember enough details {crazy as they are} to make it an article. :)

      I know that I dream, but I rarely remember them.

      So, I've got to know, was dream Burt as handsome in dream world? Was he young or older? LOL

      OMG Shannon, I was laughing so hard, trying to tell my husband about it and like I said, I got 'that look'.

      I am so glad that it seems to be working out and who knows where it may lead. ;)

      Oh, Angie, you just made me laugh out loud. Seriously! Maybe you disappeared because you didn't know what award to be dreaming about? Thankfullly, you don't have to feel guilty for anything. Isn't it funny, though, how dreams can leave us feeling as if they were real? Thanks for sharing!

      P.S. I was going to tell you the other day that the only problem with that is that his people only have my imaginable people to speak with. LOL. So apparently, his people told him and he contacted me directly. Your dream must've been good luck. And so appropriate, too, considering it's a true story that started, more or less, with a dream.
