This was a very weird vivid one to the point I convinced myself I was awake.
I remember being in some supermarket and my farthest back left molar cracked and fell apart. It didn’t hurt, but was weird and I spit out tooth bits in my right hand. I was afraid of my mouth getting infected or accidentally swallowing more broken bits so I didn’t swallow my spit and went around a Target store at night asking to use a phone to call a dentist with a mouth full of spit. I convinced myself I was awake when I questioned whether I was dreaming and continuously tried to move things with my mind (my usual “totem” to see if I was dreaming). However, nothing moved and my dream kept getting more vivid so I totally thought I was awake.
What was funny was I didn’t give a crap that I lost a tooth since it was a wisdom tooth. I was more worried about infection or swallowing sharp pieces and wanted a dentist to make sure none of my other teeth did the same thing.
I remember being teamed up with some guy who looked ex-military to participate in an Amazing Race-style game sponsored by National Geographic. It was pretty cool because there was some trivia involved and we had to seek out “markers” to gain points and be told a clue to another marker. They looked like the National Geographic symbol and floated above the ground. They were only about 8-12 inches tall and we had to spin them with our hands or kick them.
I didn’t recognize the guy I was teamed up with, but he was a nice guy and very smart. We were ahead in the game. I remember one point where I found the next marker outside of a one-story municipal building. I rushed over and kicked the marker and the guy came over to read the clue. I don’t know if I heard part of the clue and went on or what, but I remember taking off toward another building looking for the next clue and the guy stayed behind yelling for me.
I never saw him again.
I remember hours later, going into a building and explaining that we were in a race and if that was the spot the clue said to seek out. It was, but the women at the counter looked at me rudely because they thought I was unprofessional. They said the next step was to watch a movie about something and the showings were at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. It was around 2:30 p.m. at that time, so I thought that would give me an hour to hunt down the guy.
I could not find him. I found a LOT of gold (it gave you points to help out if you were bad at trivia) near a “starting point,” but the game would not let me collect it until I was finished with the marker in progress. Another team started at that starting point and grabbed almost all the gold as well as hitting markers within the gold for trivia questions. I continued to try to grab the gold items to cash in when the marker was completed. However, I realized I didn’t have a way to carry the gold. I thought I could use my shirt, but by that time, the gold in my arms crumbled and disappeared.
I remember it started in a room where people were working out. I also remember being in a grungy part of a city and was creeped out by some guy with a gray hat.
Later, I was watching a movie screening and was impressed with the technology. It made the surroundings black and it was 3D without the glasses. The story started with an animated title sequence with a map and cartoon helicopters visited different places on the map. It was named [something] Interceptor or something weird like that.
The story began with two Arab boys explaining what they plan to do once they escape their situation. I think they were child slaves, but I’m not sure because the movie was in Arabic and I don’t know that language, yet. When they began telling their dreams to each other, the scene would cut to an animation showing it as they spoke.
They stopped it after the second child talked about his dream. Some guys in the back didn’t like the “dreams” because they were too American and I guess they wanted them more inspired by the middle eastern culture.
I was sitting next to the score composer, who was played by a younger Edward Norton in my dream. His bitchy girlfriend was played by Cameron Diaz.
The composer got up and went to the screen area, which was now part of a movie set on a large lot. He was worried they didn’t like the music. I went over and explained what was going on and that his music was fine. Arab men were saying, “no, no, no, no, no” in Arabic to the director. I joked with the composer that rejection in Arabic is pretty cool: “La, la, la, la, la…It’s almost musical.” He laughed at that.
We started walking through the set/lot. We got to one area and actors were walking down a fake street with old white curly wigs on. The composer asked me if I liked a certain classical music composer. It might have been Brahms. Whoever it was, a nearby restaurant was playing music by them. I told him I almost chose music for a major.
We got close to another large set/restaurant and his girlfriend came over. I didn’t want to piss her off even more, so I said, “Have fun!” and started walking away. He said, “I’ll see you later…I will see you later, right?” I said, “Sure.”
He soon started following me and we had a conversation and he ended up walking in front of me while we talked. We went up and down stairs, in and out of sets. There was even one set that I had to move a couch because the coffee table was too close for me to walk through.
I don’t remember much more than that.
I remember looking for a condo with Matt and Jennifer. We were at an open house and a tour with others. The city was larger and more gritty, but the condo we were in was like the pretty blue one in Columbus, but the blocks were red, blue, yellow, and white and reminded me of a Piet Mondrian painting. I explained to the others that in another dream, a small train would pass through the first level in the future.
A young blonde girl was with us and she was afraid of werewolves. However, she was slowly turning into a werewolf and in my dream, every once in a while she would howl or growl and her face would change shape. It didn’t cause her pain, but she was scared. Others were scared, too, but I wasn’t. I told her about a hot guy her age that was also a warewolf and later tried to hook them up.
