Dad's Dream about Vampires

While talking to my mother this evening she mentioned that my father was up half the night because he had a nightmare about vampires. Naturally I was intrigued. So Mom passed the phone off to Dad and he filled me in. So this is the dream that my dad had, told in the first person as in he's talking. I typed parts of this while he was telling me, so you should probably imagine an accent as you read this.

I was in Vampire Land and I was surrounded. At first the vampires were nice but then they were terrible and were doing horrible things and were changing shapes. And I had so many people to protect. But you know what I did? You know how I defeated them? The power of the mind. I just focused and the vampires would be so frustrated and then I would chop their heads off. I was the next vampire slayer.

But finally I had to get up and go to the bathroom and I was awake and I made myself stay awake because I had enough of this stupid dream. But I was exhausted from focusing so hard and killing all the vampires. So I laid awake until I was so tired and then I fell asleep again.

You know what's so interesting? The power of the mind. And how you can just focus and control others and beat the hell out of them.

I'm pretty speechless right now. It's even better in print!

Tara said...

Oh man! yeah i don't even know what to say. Other than it reminds me of the time I accidentally said my life was complicated to your dad, and he laughed and shook his head, "Oh your life is not complicated, my life is complicated." or something.

omg Tara, that is SO funny! How can someone be so great and a semi-jerk at the same time? I only hope that I can one day emulate his graceful form. :)

Tara said...

That's the best part about it, that if someone else said it to you, you'd be like wtf? But because it was your dad I was like "You're right, your life is much more complicated than mine."

When I was at your parents house your dad told us about this dream. Reem asked him how he "slayed" the vampires and responded by saying very casually, "you know, the usual, stake through the heart".
