Dreamer 1: This dream actually occurred a while ago but I have just remembered it recently and it was a recurring one. I was walking as if on a field trip and it was to this old house that we were going. There was a red carpet and there were ropes on either side of it, and somehow I knew I wasn’t supposed to touch anything outside of the rope. As I’m walking, there are other people. They weren’t necessarily kids, it was just a field trip of people.
Dreamer 2: Sometimes I don’t know how much to take stock in a dream, like it’s just an event that I was thinking about, that person earlier that day, and so forth, and then it comes up in my dream. I just wonder, oh, you’re just dreaming about that because you saw it earlier. Anyway, yesterday I was thinking maybe I should talk to my intern; he has a nice babysitting job. Maybe it will be a way to make extra money… and I also had seen two children throughout the day. Then in my dream, I dreamed that I was interviewing for a job for babysitting. It was at a couple houses up from the house I grew up in and I kinda’ saw that the kids that I had seen in the day were in my dream. The little girl was dancing and the little boy was falling asleep on me. Like I had seen on the train. I did feel contentment. And also the man I was speaking to —it was like he was a doctor and he was saying that he didn’t know how to help people with a thyroid problem. I have a thyroid problem. And then I said, “Oh, well.” I quit drinking because I think that will maybe help it, and he said yeah, it definitely will help it. And then I just feel like when I was leaving that I knew that I kinda’ had the job if I wanted it, and that’s what I remember.
