OK, so I had this crazy dream last night and I am totally perplexed at how my brain came up with it. It was just so out there in Bizarro World which shouldn't be surprising since I feel like I'm living in Bizarro World most of the time... but this was REALLY out there.

Here it is:

All of a sudden I'm on this stage where my friend, Kerrie, is getting ready to put on this play about the Brady Bunch. Now the fact that it's about the Brady Bunch doesn't surprise me at all seeing as how Kerrie has loved everything Brady since practically birth. What did surprise me was that Kerrie was directing this play. For those of you who don't know Kerrie, she tends to be a tad shy and doesn't usually put herself in the position of, oh I don't know, say, directing a play.

(Side Note: The Brady Bunch movie came out when I was in college and don't think Kerrie didn't make several of us dress up as the kids and go. I'm really not sure why, but I got assigned to be Greg. I wore some bellbottoms that were my mom's when she was in high school. No lie, we actually did this - it's not a part of the dream.)

So, I'm on this stage with tons of people and it turns out that the play is tonight. This is the first I've heard about it and I'm supposed to be Jan. (Really, Jan? And of course, Kerrie cast herself as Marcia.) Well, obviously, it doesn't occur to me to be worried about my lines, I'm more concerned with the fact that I don't have an outfit and my hair is not blonde. I guess I'm assuming that this would be the later years where they do the little novelty shows and I can wing it.

Anyway, the blonde hair was a BIG issue in this dream, so my siser-in-law and I head to Wal-Mart to buy some yellow and white spray paint so we can mix up a nice color to spray on my hair. We got back, the play is starting, no time to do my hair and I have no outfit. I do find a bag on the floor that has some jeans that miraculously fit except that they are about 2 inches to short (not good in the bellbottom era) and this shirt that I can't even describe.

Then the panic sets in - I don't know my lines! - it's not a novelty show! - I can't find a script! - my heart is beating faster and faster - the audience is huge - and then I wake up.

The dream was SO vivid. What could possibly made my brain think that up and impose it on my dear, sweet brain that wanted to be dreaming about laying out by a pool with a brand new book???

So.... my wonderful internet friends... can you please interpret this dream for me???

Jill, what did you have for supper last night?

Kerrie said...

Crack me up! Yes, I have loved the BB practically since birth, I still love it and now my girls are watching it and they love it too! You should know that I would totally be Jan since she is my favorite. Did I tell you that after me and the girls watched the episode where Jan gets a black wig, Caroline asked me about 2 days later "When will you let us get a wig?" I thought I was going to fall out of my chair from laughing so hard! Glad I was such a big part of your dream last night.
Here is my interpretation: you miss me!!! (maybe you need to come over and watch some BB with me and the girls one day! Love ya!!!

Mama Hen said...

I agree with Kerrie, you need to go over and have a big BB spend the night party. You could even watch the later movies. Abbie could join you. Yes! Abbie, and I'm sure the boys and James wouldn't mind tagging along. Hey, make it a long BB weekend with the kids. There. Dream interpreted.

That's a tough one for me to try to interpret! I wish I could help you out... sorry, but it was very entertaining and I got a good laugh out of it! Thanks!

Hi! I came over from MamaHen's blog....I have no idea what the dream means, but it cracked me up! I know the busier I am, the crazier dreams I have. I think there is a scripture in Proverbs that backs up that as well, I just can't think of it now....something about a multitude of business.

Fun blog!

Came from Momma Hen, your dream simply brought a smile to my face. No interpretation, but delighted to meet you.

I have goofy dreams like that, too. I think it means we are really really super intelligent.

Missy @ It's Almost Naptime said...

Ok, I have had this same dream. I posted about it:


It is akin to the, "I have a final exam and forgot to drop the class" dream. So what are you anxious about?

The bill is in the mail ;)

Jennifer said...

Isn't it obvious...you were totally meant to be a child star - but you're just a few decades too late - and your true inner self just won't let it go!!

Or something like that. :)

i have two interpretations.

the simple answer: you want to change your hair color. you are longing to be a blonde.

the deep answer: you are spending too much time in your life on something that doesn't really matter (symbolised by the hair color) and you are ignoring something important which needs to get done (symbolised by not learning your lines)
