I had another nightmare.
I was working in somewhere like the bagelshop, and it was late at night, it had already closed, and most of the place except for the bakery at the back was dark. I was happily exploring little wall hangings that looked like large eggs with long trailing decorated cords attached. One I liked was a vivid red, like the Chinese knot decorations, while another was a rich blue. I consider buying them. Suddenly I get a page on the phone, "Chocolates at 392, chocolates at 392" and move to see someone, profiled against the light from the bakery, stealing chocolate. I move to accost the thief from the front; someone wearing a red t-shirt (one of the young Asian lads barely out of high school who do work in the bagelshop in real life) moves at him from the back. The intruder rises and runs at me; backlit against the bakery light, he is a large young man in a navy-blue sweater, with dark curly hair and a very florid, scared and violent face. I know that if I confront him, I have no chance of winning by brute force, so I let him past me and let him go, even though he did steal a chocolate bar. I look at the youth who was my ally. I am alive and safe, we'll catch him later, and the chocolate bar doesn't matter that much anyway, but the moment of confrontation was what made me almost-wake, adrenaline racing and heart in my throat.
Hmm, the loyal Dream Moods online dictionary, will you provide me with insight and wisdom?
To see chocolate in your dream, signifies self-reward. It also denotes that you may be indulging in too many excesses and need to practice some restraint. --- but it wasn't mine to begin with and it was getting stolen from me!
To dream that you are a witness to a theft, indicates that others are wasting and stealing your time, energy, and ideas. --- yeah, I suspect the bagelshop is wasting my energy.
To see a bakery in your dream, signifies richness and success. Your future will be an enjoyable [sic], pleasant and filled with satisfaction. --- hehe, me likes.
Red is an indication of raw energy, force, vigor, intense passion, aggression, power, courage and passion. The color red has deep emotional and spiritual connotations. Intense passion as well as the ordinary kind?
Red is also the color of danger, shame, sexual impulses and urges. Perhaps you need to stop and think about your actions. --- keep in mind that I really liked those hangings, and the lad in the red t-shirt was not a close ally but an ally nevertheless.
I don't think what they say about blue --- spirituality and wisdom, etc. --- really applies here. But what's up with
many people wearing blue of various shades in my dreams, as if my dreamworld is having an Attack of the Clones of the Dark Lord Day* (Night?)? And I could recall nothing significant about the number 392. It's 2^3 x 7^2, which is cool, but that's it, and I didn't know that before Wikipedia told me.
And I really don't see why I should be so scared. Well, I am making a presentation today, or should
be, but I don't feel it is about that.
*which really happened. But involved ties as well.
P.S. IT'S MARCH TOMORROW AND WOULD HAVE BEEN MARCH TODAY BUT FOR THE LEAP YEAR, AND IT'S MINUS FIFTEEN DEGREES WITHOUT WINDCHILL --- WINTER, GET YOUR ARSE THE HELL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY!!!
