There is something that I think is very odd about my dreams. I'm curious to hear whether anyone else experiences this and/or if you have any idea if it means anything.

Whenever I have a dream that I can remember in any kind of detail, I remember that during the dream I could not keep my eyes open. I'm in my dream trying hard to open my eyes so I can see what's going on, and I'll get them open a crack, but once I get a glimpse of whatever is happening, they'll slide right closed again. I hear and feel what's going on, but constantly fight to see the dream. If I do succeed in really opening my eyes, I open them in real life and, thus, wake up and the dream is lost.

Isn't that weird? It's like I'm too logical even in my dreams! "Oh, I'm dreaming so I must be asleep and, therefore, my eyes are closed."

What do you guys think? Does this ever happen to you?


  1. Yes, it's weird. You're weird, in fact. But I like you anyway.

  2. That specific bit of weirdness doesn't happen to me in my dreams; most of my dreams are exceedingly visual.

    I do sometimes find myself frantically looking for a bathroom in my dreams; this is a sign that it's time to wake up and make a trip down the hall.
