A dream that you were so sure was real  
Yesterday, softlykarou accidentally woke me up while she was looking for something in our bedroom before she left for work, and it took me a while to get back to sleep. Eventually, after some fitful tossing and turning, I gave up on sleeping, grabbed my phone from my bedside cube (we sleep on a futon, so I have a low-to-the-ground cube instead of a table), and started checking Twitter. When that was exhausted, I grabbed my iPad, popped myself up on my pillow, and started reading the internet. Then, all of a sudden, my iPad's screen went all jagged like in this Super Mario Brothers video. After some fruitless effort to fix it, I was about to get up to go check my computer for information on how to fix it-

-and then I opened my eyes onto a dark room. My phone and iPad were both on the cube where I left them. My phone alarm going off had woken me up, which I assume, dear reader, you already knew because the subject of this post has "dream" in it. But I'm a little annoyed that the first dream I can remember in months is a dream of what I do every morning anyway with an anxiety-inducing ending.

Weird. Personally I suspect a lot of dreams we don't remember are ordinary stuff dreams, just ones that... fade away

Yeah. I figure I have a lot more dreams than I remember--and thus probably have really boring dreams! --and that I only remembered this one because I was woken up earlier.

Flipside, sometimes I wake up with a dream fresh in my head, go over it, and then find it boring, so it can be hard to tell what my brain judges memory worthy!

And going by percentages of dreams I *do* remember, I have a lot more less usual ones...

So who knows what our dream averages are?
