    The Dream

    I was riding to work this morning and passed a pedestrian with a dog walking on the footpath.

    The dog wasn't leashed and came rushing toward me. I went past fairly quickly so there was no trouble. I just turned around and glared at the owner for a couple of seconds as if to say, "Don't you know what a leash is?"

    The wierd thing was that I then remembered a dream. I don't know if I had the dream last night but it would have been within the last couple of nights.

    The dream was that I was with few other cyclists and we passed passed a pedestrian with a dog walking on the footpath.

    The dog wasn't leashed and came rushing toward us. We went past fairly quickly so there was no trouble. I just turned around and glared at the owner for a couple of seconds and said, "Don't you know what a leash is?"

    In the dream the dog was brown, today's dog was black.

    I have never had that situation happen before. I've had dogs chasing me and I've sometimes seen careless owners walking dogs without leads but they haven't chased me.

    Strange stuff.

    Perhaps this post is a dream? Wake up - it's time to go to work!

    well acording to my dream interpretation skills. you are afraid of the daily routine (routine being the dog), you try to run but you can't. you keep on seing the dog. but the only way you can escape from "routine" is to cycle faster!

    According to my dream interpretation skills, the dream was a warning which served me well when the actual event happened. Kind of God's way of preparing me for this morning's ride.

    Rodney,

    Its pretty clear from your description of both the
    dream and the perceived reality (delusion?) that you
    have a deep seated oedipal complex with significant
    wolfman complex and underlying canine phobias
    (5900.C40 DSM III with 520 axis 3).
    If I recall correctly from university days, this would be
    caused by your mother being run over by a dog while
    she was walking home after seeing a "B" grade Lon Chaney
    movie. Did I mention that she was most probably pregnant
    with you at the time? that would be the most logical assumption
    given the transplacental transferrence of fear and or anxiety
    across the cereberal blood barrier (or is it the cortical blood
    barrier?).
    Either that is the root cause or the deja-vu like experience
    was the matrix changing some part of itself and you should
    look for cypher to try and sell out Morpheus.

    Either way the prescribed cure would be long rides
    with either a water bottle for defense against canine attacks
    or massive work effort causing large quantities of endorphins
    to be released into your bloodstream causing you to not really
    care about dogs, or Oedipus.
    Nemo and Morpheus are things we should all worry about.

    In reality, you want to have sex with the dog!

    How's that for a Freudian interpretation!?

    Maybe he's stuck in the anal stage. Or his ego is supressing his id.


    Ok, in order to find anything out for sure, like if you really are in the anal stage, MediaCreations, you must say the first thing that comes to mind. And then tell us about your childhood.
