My family and I were decorating this place, like a house way up high on some mountains. It’s a gorgeous location, and the house/castle was set right on the cliff. I wander over to ask my mom something and then my sister shoves me backwards, hard. I stumble backwards past the unfinished walls and down the sheer cliff, bouncing off ledges along the way. I heard my mom yell at her. I come to a halt at the bottom of the mountain, uninjured, just annoyed, and get up to make my way to the top to tell her off. The mountainside is grassy and holds many trees. It’s so peaceful, I can’t stay mad for getting knocked off. Some stuff about family, including cousins.
Back in front of the castle, there’s already an established trade route. It’s nighttime now. The nearby traveling merchant has some chips that I want. The group I’m with buys everything and now I have to go even further to get those chips! The problem is that the further you get away from the castle, the more dangerous it gets. I’m looking carefully for the merchant because I WANT THOSE CHIPS, but I am aware of the large number of bandits/miscreants being rowdy around that area, even though it is well lit. I’m trying to figure out the best way to talk to the person when–
–I’m now in my grandparents’ basement. I’m either visiting or staying there temporarily. I have 7 infants ( think I only ever see 3 or 5) and they’re about to wake up hungry. There’s a mini fridge there with the TV on it and as the first one awakes, I open it up to grab some sustenance. At first I choose the milk, but my mom, who’s there, recommends that I use the ice cream since the baby will like it better. Perhaps the baby is teething? It’s a special newborn formulation. I take out the ice cream and the baby is super happy. The others start to wake up and I’m going through these containers of ice cream (1 per baby). Soon, there aren’t any ice creams left, only a Chinese soup container of some other newborn food. Without any other choice, I feed it to the remaining infants and they love it! I am impressed by it all, but since I am now out, I have to go buy more. At the store now, I snag the last 3 containers of the newborn soup and I can’t find the ice cream! Oh no!
Now I’m driving in the city I grew up in. I’m driving west bound in a Fit and am messing with the moonroof because the car is new and I’m trying to decide if I want that feature on my car too. The weird thing is that you can open the roof and then on the center console there’s this fabric cover you can use to cover up the open roof. I think it’s redundant and useless, so I take it down and close the roof. Traffic stops at the light. I’m now driving an Infinity. I accelerate on the green and the suddenly pull off to the side and get out. Everyone is walking/running now down the road. 2 people cut me off and I shove them away, mad because there are only 4 of us on the road and why couldn’t they pass behind me where there is literally no one (real life event from yesterday’s commute). I continue to jog and am quickly running out of steam. Suddenly I remember that I randomly parked the car in the middle of the road. I turn to the east bound lane and run that way, worried that they probably towed it by now. It’s not my car so I have to get it back. It’s now parked in the west bound lane with 10 other cars. What happened? There are tow trucks, tow equipment and broken cars scattered there. I briefly wondered how traffic would be able to drive through there, but am focused on locating and getting the Infinity out of there. I ask my brother to help and to my relief the car is right there! We both check carefully to be sure there aren’t any boots or other security devices on the car. If there are I’d just leave it and pay the fine. We take off a few yellow stickers and I hop in to drive it back to the house I grew up in. Almost a mile down, the car announces, “Police swarming. Police swarming.” My stomach drops. We missed a device! I keep driving, though, feverishly looking at my mirrors to glimpse any blue lights barreling towards me. I turn into the turn lane, all the while realizing I am a sitting duck. Nothing ever happens. I turn on th green and end up in the right turn lane for the post office. I am walking again. A man and a lady walk around me and I wait for them before changing lanes and walking down the road towards the house.
Everything is different. So much so that I’m inside a store. Like, an open air store. There are a bunch of people wearing safari gear hiding in the displays with microphones on the end of long poles. Oh no. They’re having some kind of promotion. I quickly find out what kind, walking by the first one. The guy says to me, “Do you need new underwear???? Are you wearing panties???” I laugh nervously and just keep going but these people are everywhere! They’re streaming all of this live, too! I lead Gable down the stairs and pretend to look through the greeting card section. I see stairs in the ground and proceed to climb down them. I have to go first because there’s no room for Gable but he jumps after me. Even on this floor there are more, so I descend another floor and find myself in a bookstore. My mom is there shopping and so is my friend. My mom keeps trying to give us Harp-piano books so we can play a duet, but I tell her that it has to be easy piano and intermediate harp. I’m looking excitedly through all the books and find a greyhound album. I pick it up and lay it on a table yo look through it even though it’s just an empty album you can buy. I’m opening it up when–
–I wake up and find that I desperately have to pee.
