riddle me this baby


Three random things:

1. I used to write letters to myself in the future. Like when I started high school I wrote myself a letter to open on graduation day etc. I know where I stashed them all - I'm curious if I wrote anymore that I forgot about. I should also start it up again - maybe write a letter to myself to open the day I have my first child "dear alissa...hahaha sucker!" just kidding :)

2. So, speaking of babies I had a very bizarre dream last night. I gave birth to this baby that looked a lot like a rubber doll. They dressed it in red and wouldn't tell me if it was a boy or a girl. The catch was that I was like a surrogate - this was in no way my baby, not genetically - and I gave it to its parents a few minutes after giving birth, then I went on with my normal day. Until later in the dream that I freaked out that I had given birth and went back to the hospital to look for the baby. Even though I knew it wasn't mine.

I woke up this morning and looked this up in my dream analyzing book and it said that dreams about having a baby are typically about discovering a new talent or a new opportunity presenting itself in your life. A) I can't think of anything like that in my life right now haha B)what does it mean if its someone else's baby ? I'm discovering someone else's new talent? What good does that do?

By the by, the dream book does mention that dreams about having a baby and then forgetting about it/neglecting it (which I have on a regular basis) is often a sign that you're neglecting yourself - possibly neglecting a new talent or creative energy.

Want me to look up your dream in the book? Feel free to comment - I'll play dream analyzer for the day.

3. Here's a riddle - its from an old Greek Mythology story a teacher once told me: What walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon and three in the evening?

I have one for you. I had a dream that my friend talked me into getting hair extensions/implants that involved peeling your scalp back to add hair. When it came down to it I freaked out because I didn't want to have surgery. What the heck does that mean?

Hi love. I had two really weird dreams last night.

Dream 1: I won some contest and the price was this $700 surfboard that was apparently top-of-the-line. After winning, I went out into the ocean and started practicing. I don't remember, but I'm sure I was really bad. I remember the water being really salty and thinking that I should've slathered conditioner all over my hair before jumping in. Random?!

Dream 2: I tried to go back to Minnesota and get my job back with the Wild. One guy was all about helping me get my job back and firing the new designer. But my old manager wanted nothing to do with me and made me feel really bad and ended up firing the other guy who was crusading for me to get my job back.

Haha! So get to analyzing :)

:) what an interesting dream! Strange, but interesting! I think it's neat your wrote your future self letters and I remember that riddle from highschool - Man (or woman!)

Chanel said...

ah! My senior year in highschool we were required to write a letter to ourselves and my teacher mailed it one year later. It's pretty cool to read things you've written yourself, sometimes sad too!

I ALWAYS have dreams (I mean tons of) about some random guy liking me. No idea what they could mean.
