Why do we dream? One theory that doctors have is when you are at school, home, or somewhere, there are so many things that are going on that you don't think about during the day, night, etc. When you sleep, in other words dream, you think about all of the things that have happened. Also, during the day or night, if you are worried or upset, or feeling something about someone, something, etc., it all comes out. You think/ dream about it when asleep.
There are a number of people who claim they do not dream. I guess that is possible but I would like to believe that they just do not remember what occurs. Some people skip the 1st stage of sleep: REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. Scientists and/or doctors don't really know why some people can do this.
My crazy dream last night involved the Obama girls, our President Elect and little ole me. The setting was Washington D.C. I believe it could have been the White House, but since I have never been inside, I am only speculating on this factoid. I was an authority figure for the girls, but not a nanny, babysitter or care taker. Why I remember this so adamantly, I an not sure. However, they were seated in the kitchen at the island with granite counter tops. I was helping them with their homework. Their parents were entering and exiting the kitchen being very loving to their girls and very kind to me. Next thing I knew, I took the girls to see Santa Clause where we were standing in a very long line. Not because I said anything to anyone, someone came over to expedite the girls to the front of the line. Before I knew it, the two young girls were smiling and unable to contain their excitement. They were going to see Santa!
Then I woke up. And I scratched my head and said "what was that all about?".
Now this is by no means what I call a weird dream...I've had some doosies, believe me. Do you remember your dreams? Care to share the good ones with us?
