Have you ever had a dream that was so detailed it almost felt real, yet was so ridiculous you knew it wasn’t? I happen to have very detailed and intricate dreams at times and I have retold some of these dreams to friends and family because they are so entertaining. However, the other week I had one of the craziest dreams I’ve ever had in my life. Seriously, I don’t know where it came from. So, for your enjoyment, here is my dream, “Opera Houses and Dinosaurs.”
First, I see that I’m in a beautiful opera house. It was probably the most gorgeous one I’ve ever been to and I had never seen it before. It was in the evening and the carpet was a deep red. There was gold in every corner and candlelight in the foyer. The house lights were on and the place was full of people. I realized that the performance must have been over since everyone began chatting and scuffling, trying to leave. I looked over and saw that I was with four other friends. The faces kept changing so I never knew exactly who I was with (I’m sure you’ve experienced this in your dreams), but I knew they were friends of mine. I curiously started looking around at the details in the room when suddenly, I heard gasping. When my friends and I looked over, we saw a man holding a black tube of light. There were six holes on it where the light would stream out. However, it was so bright that it looked like the whole tube was glowing. He then started to weaken while everyone just stared at him not knowing what to do. Then we heard another gasp from across the room. Another man holding an identical tube. Now, here is where it got a little scary…they both started to hunch down like they were fading. All of a sudden I had the knowledge that there were more and we needed to find them quickly. We didn’t know how many tubes there were at first, but when we found 5 tubes and I knew that was what we needed. Once we put the tubes together and held them in the air, the man in front of us immediately healed, but the other man was gone. We found that whatever force it was choosing one person to live.
After everyone frantically left in horror, we then, the 5 of us, decided to pull the tubes of light apart. This was a mistake. We each felt a surge of light pulse through us but didn’t know what it was. The next morning we woke up to have all turned to dinosaurs (absolutely ridiculous). None of us knew what type we were at first because we couldn’t remember anything while we were dinosaurs. Then, at sundown, we would return to our human form. At this point, the opera house had been permanently closed and we all started living there since we couldn’t live normal lives. There was a catch to when we turned into humans though. Each night, after we locked the doors, the light tubes would disperse from their place and disappear inside the opera house. We would then have to find them like we did that first night and bring them together in a holding place or we would die. We knew that we could never let the light tubes escape and hide outside or they would be impossible to find. There was one room that was filled with all kinds of books and unknown objects that would keep us human if we stayed there. We did most of the time but still had to go out for different reasons.
One night, one of my friends decided to follow a curious glow by the lake outside of the opera house. Of course, I followed and saw when we reached the lake that there was a woman there. She was humming and dancing around. The closer I got to her I realized that she looked more like a witch. She had a cauldron that was glowing and putting off a green smoke. She never turned around to look at us but kept pouring things in from her cabinet set making some kind of concoction. All of a sudden, my friend tried to walk up to her and accidentally went through the green smoke coming out of the cauldron. He then starts running towards me and when he ran passed I could see that his face looked different. Almost distorted; like a T-Rex! Before I could react to what I had just seen, I had accidentally walked through the vapor as well. I turned quickly and ran towards the opera house. As soon as I reached the door, I realized that my face was turning and I finally could see that the type of dinosaur I was becoming was probably a Triceratops. In my mind, I knew that somehow this vapor was turning us into dinosaurs permanently. If we couldn’t remember anything while we were dinosaurs during the day we wouldn’t be able to gather the light tubes and then we would all die…and then I woke up.
What’s the craziest dream you have had?
