I really wonder.
I sometimes dream about famous people. Do you? And what do you think it means?
A couple of nights ago, I dreamed that I was in a period play and had on this beautiful, long lavender Victorian gown. My sister texted me to tell me that Jon Hamm (gorgeous actor from Mad Men) was on his way to see me because he wanted to hear that "dirty joke" that I had told on Thanksgiving about a banana.
I had no recollection of telling a dirty joke and before I could contemplate it much, there he was, running down a hall towards me, laughing and yelling, "I can't wait to hear that joke!"
I decided to just make one up and said something about "why is a dick like a banana?"
I don't know how I pulled it off, but I made him laugh. And I was sitting there thinking how COOL it was to actually meet Jon Hamm. I suddenly remembered that I had a show to act in, so tried to leave, but he kept tickling me, asking for a "little smooch."
I started running for the stage and let me tell you, I was flying like the wind. I thought to myself how WONDERFUL it was to run like this, like when I was a kid. And there was Jon, right beside me, laughing.
We had to run through the audience to get to the stage and then we both started laughing backstage about how we had "fooled" the audience into thinking that this was all part of the play.
I woke up when Bing nudged me awake.
"You were laying there LAUGHING," she said. "It was sort of freaky. I was going to just let you sleep, but you were loud and I need to sleep, honey."
She fell back asleep almost immediately, so I didn't get a chance to tell her my dream until the next day when I talked about it at the dinner table with all of our guests, too.
For the record:
Liv has dreamed a few times about Lady Gaga, but no one else.
Vince often has vivid dreams about famous people, even dead ones. He had one particularly satisfying dream about Paul Newman...
Thuan, to his knowledge, has never dreamed about anyone famous, but he says that he practically never remembers his dreams.
Tinton dreams occasionally about them, but not enough that he recalls any past dreams.
Nirand says that he dreams about cartoon characters coming to life sometimes (Daria, Porky Pig, Family Guy) but he doesn't remember dreaming about any famous people.
Everyone thought my dream was pretty funny, but Thuan reminded me that we had eaten ham (Jon HAMM) that night and Nirand remembered that we had all watched the movie The Town that evening too and Jon Hamm is in that. So, maybe a combination of what I ate and a movie?
So, here is my question.
Do you ever dream about famous people? And if so, can you share one of your dreams?
