In Which The Mule Turns One

She's Kind of The Crunchy Granola Type, If You Know What I Mean

I wish my subsconcious could let go and dream BIG while I slept. There are some dreams that are memorable and beautiful - my friend and I both hummingbirds and soaring into the night sky, looking down at the earth and its jewelled lights far below. I can still see and feel the images from that dream.

The dream I had last night doesn't even come close to memorable. I am almost embarrassed to share it because of the sheer unimaginative quality. The dream I had last night may be what separates me from movie stars - surely celebrities never dream such dull and uninspired dreams as the following.

Last night, I dreamt of granola. I was telling someone about the brand of granola that I eat and that the grocery store will sometimes offer a dollar off coupon. I was very animated and eager to share. I really need to stimulate my imagination. There are so many ways that the dream could have been more interesting:

  • Eating granola while perched on the back of an elephant
  • Shopping the cereal aisle with the Dali Lama
  • Driving madly after someone who had spray painted the word "Granola" on my car door
  • Finding a time capsule filled with granola

Any of the above scenarios would have been more interesting. But no. In my dream I was simply blathering on about my favorite granola and the availability of coupons. How can I supercharge my imagination, friends?

It's okay - my friend had a dream the other night that was so normal that she thought it had actually happened and so she checked with me to make sure it hadn't.

And I had a very similar dream the other night as well. So it's not just you who needs help, we all do.

Gosh, I don't know how to help. Triggers for the imagination are so different for each person. I actually think your four bullets above are pretty imaginative and funny. What kind of cereal do you suppose the Dali Lama would eat?


Laura, my guess is that he would like something with berries but I'd be happy to share a bowl of granola with him!


Katina, I have a memory from years and years ago that I've never been sure of. Dream or real? I do have my fair share of fantastic dreams and once in awhile a dream or sensation so frightening that I wake up from an intense pump of adrenalin and fear. I was watching C-Span this evening and it occurred to me that this might contribute to my very bland dream life tonight.


I have always heard that if you eat pickles right before you go to bed it will give you crazy dreams.... at least that's what Papaw always told me :)


But, I MADE granola this morning-- What can this mean?

Okay here's the deal: FOCUS on stuff a LOT at bedtime and you MIGHT dream about it. Especially plotlines. I really do dream elements of plotlines...
