Bizarre dreams last night.|
For some reason I was going on a sailboat/yacht thing(?) and there were four of us. The main captain was a Dennis Leary-esque-looking person, similar abrasive attitude. Then there was Kina, a teenage male (maybe her brother), and myself.
I remember it being a stressful environment and the captain was being sort of a jerk, but it was like I was the only one who realized he was trying to make some point.
The 3 of us didn't really know what was going on or why we were going sailing all of a sudden, but I did realize he was trying to explain that we needed to empty out our pockets for a reason.
He was saying it like "welcome aboard, now get rid of all your stuff".
I asked him if we were going to get submerged.
"Is there anywhere we can put things to keep them dry?" I didn't want to get my cellphone wet. I've had enough of that already.
"You know, you're going to be captain." I look at him completely batshit confused. "If you can find a way to secure it...*points up into the sailboat's....crow's nest*"
But the "crow's nest" isn't much else than a circular platform with a mast going through it that isn't very large, so I collect everyone's things and put them into my shoes and actually just rig it up high on the rope netting/ladder so it doesn't move or lose anything.
As it turns out this boat has to be craned into place. For some reason there's netting on the back under the ledge on the outside. Think of where motors would/could be then picture some random horizontal ledge made with netting there. For some reason we were needed there; I didn't quite figure that one out. Kina being Kina jumps and monkeys her way into this thing hanging from the bottom.
I figure, "she's been sailing before, I guess I can do the same" although my first inclination was to just get top of the ledge".
Turns out I should have listened to my gut. While she was secured by having her legs woven through the netting I just had time to get my arms through before the boat was lifted (almost missed my ride!). I figure we're not going far so I don't make much effort to improve my stance.
However, we're being lifted over a major metropolitan bridge, hundreds of feet into the air.
Now at this point there started to be major continuity gaps. There were airplanes up there with us and then during another instant we were into water and I was trying to find a place to use the bathroom. Turns out I actually had to go and it was permeating my dreams. :p
So I wake up and forget the ending bits of this dream and opt to continue my tale so I pass right back out. I did recall not particularly liking the acsent upward and feeling like I was near death or falling.
Now we're on commercial airplanes. Or maybe we were just still in the air with the crane and the boat, I can't recall. Different captain, and the male is my cousin. For some reason we have the ability to just...jump off these things. So my cousin jumped off and I didn't know why. I followed to try to catch him and hoped I could just...sky dive onto another plane to save us.
This didn't really work out. I couldn't find my cousin and I ran out of time to land on things so I had to aim for the water. I assumed the dream would stop here, but it didn't. I stiffened my body into a thin beam, plugged my nose and hoped for the best. Next thing I woke up on a shore. I think I recall everyone being there. We were in South America and my cousin landed in Africa or something. Apparently we were that high up, lol.
So I was a bit sore but otherwise perfectly healthy so I went out searching for my cousin.
Turns out he was a bit beat up and someone or something did surgery on him. I remember something about clear spheres and translucent brown spheres. They took out a part of his liver and put the clear ones there (apparently his liver got damaged on impact...he landed on land). The brown ones he kept I think. For some reason this seemed perfectly reasonable to me "oh well honest mistake, the liver is actually a bunch of clear spheres, you know". Shortly the rest of the crew joined us and we debated what the best way to land was. I was clearly the victor but people were still arguing that land was better, lol.
I'm sure there was more but nothing too much I recall. Oh, I remember having to dodge planes as I was gliding around in the air during my descent. Pretty neat stuff.
