Last Sunday’s dream:
Sorry guys, I’m a bit behind on my posts. 😦
So last Sunday night, I had a typical anxiety dream, including being late for a flight. Mom and I were going to be accompanying a group of high school students on a trip to Paris. We were very late for our flight that we were taking from some random place in the US. Our airline was Korean Air. I knew that I was going to miss the flight, so I sent Mom ahead to the airport by herself. She met the students at the airport, and they all made it onto the flight and flew to Paris. I promised that I’d be able to make the flight the next day.
So the next day, I was also running dreadfully late for my Korean Air flight to Paris. I was immediately transported from some dark room where I was packing to a fountain in the middle of a city. This was the fountain from the middle of Kaiserplatz in Bonn, Germany, though, in my dream, it was somewhere in the US. Robin was playing in the fountain, and I begged her to stop, as I needed to get to the airport. I don’t know why I wanted her to get out of the fountain, as she was not coming to the airport with me. All I knew is that she had to get out of the fountain before I could go to the airport.
All of a sudden, Chrissy from Master Chef showed up driving a black Town Car, and told me she’d take me to the airport. She drove me to the airport, and drove me to some back alley at the airport, from where she thought I could bypass the lines and still be able to catch my flight. I went up a half a story of stairs and found the door into the airport locked. I pleaded with Chrissy, who was now outside the car, leaning against the front, and smoking, asking her to call Korean Air to tell them I was there and to hold the flight. She said that there was nothing she could do. Flash to me going through security clearance at the airport, with about 12 minutes until my flight left.
