I have interesting dreams and I can often remember them in great detail



I have interesting dreams and I can often remember them in great detail

Since I have such crazy dreams and a good knack for remembering them, I decided to start documenting them and tagging them to see the most common things I dream about.

Although I try to document every dream I remember, there are lots of dreams in my youth that I never made note of – including the earliest dream I remember in which I attended a seminar held by the Pokémon Squirtle. He came on stage and said "Hello, I'm Squirtle" and sprayed everyone with water.

I also occasionally have a recurring dream that is just me eating croutons for what feels like an hour and I also had a dream that made me terrified of Timothy Spall.

There are a few things that are consistently used in my dreams, such as my ability to glide. I've had loads of dreams in which I could easily glide across the floor on my heels or even float slightly. So prevalent was this when I was a young dreamer that I was convinced I'd done it in real life at some point.

It does sometimes become very difficult to distinguish dreams from real life. I didn't get my HND certificate because I thought I already had, but I realised a few days later that I'd actually dreamed it.

So, here are all the dreams that I've remembered...

Aquaman and the aliens


The dream started off with me watching a Justice League film. There had been one released recently that mixed live action with comic book style cutaways, but someone had produced an edited version without the comic book bits. In the film, the Justice League were investigating a big, square building down by the docks. Green…

Donuts are coming


Mike and I agreed to take part in a football thing to raise money for charity. To celebrate, we ordered some Krispy Kreme donuts. While we waited, I put some bread in the toaster and some pizza in the oven. I fell asleep and the toast burnt. Mike woke me up saying “something’s cooking” by…

It’s a shavin’ thing


It started out that Mike was at my house and we were having a bit of a party. Mike went home, but I was seeing him the next day, which was a Sunday. I ordered a taxi and it arrived quicker than I’d expected. I hadn’t packed, so I asked mother to cancel the taxi…

The couple at the log cabin


I had a dream last night in which I was on holiday with my boss, Dave. It was a retreat kind of place with a log cabin next to a beach. I seem to remember we couldn’t get a train to where we were going, so we’d decided to stop there for the night. There…

The great glass toilet


The taxi came for work and I got ready to go out to work. I wanted to go barefoot, but mother made me go and get some socks on. Instead of going to work, the taxi took me to a restaurant that Gordon Ramsay was working at. I needed the toilet and asked someone where…

Toe-sucking fun


In the dream, mother was at home in the living room with my nephew, Max. Her colleague had come round to drop something off, but Max was really shy around her. He sat on the floor near her, eyeing her up. Mother gave them both some chocolate and this seemed to win Max over. The…

Having to put Zeta down


I had a dream last night that I had to put my dog, Zeta, down at the vets. I don’t remember anything else about the dream, other than it was very sad.

Nadine and Max


Had a dream last night in which my nephew, Max, and my Brazilian friend, Nadine, were both at my house. Nadine was a lot younger than she is in real life though. They’d each gotten me a present for my birthday and were arguing over who’d gotten the best present. I wanted to keep the…

A sad dream about Zeta


I can’t remember much about the dream, but it focussed around me having to put my dog, Zeta, down. Somehow she’d managed to live until 45, but it was still a very sad dream.

Starry Night on a Tuesday


I went for drinks with the family and when we were nearly finished, Matt from work said he’d drop me at school. He wanted a cup of tea first though, so I went and got changed into a makeshift school uniform with a black blazer with a red Flash shirt. I arrived at school when…

A trillion likes


I was at work and we had an intern (a young guy) in the office. Dave was out of the office so I sat in his chair and played Frank Sinatra over the speakers. After a while, Dave came back so I switched back to my usual chair, but he only stopped briefly to pick…

Attack of the trains


Mother and I went for a meeting with a health guy called George Staphanopholes (or something like that). Earlier, he’d asked me where I wanted to meet and I said “Well the top floor has a massage parlour, so there?” To which he replied, “I like your style.” Mother and I went to the top…
