The Duck Dreams of Frustrating Donuts

The night of June 15, 2021, I dreamt that I was going to have this operation.  I don’t know what kind it was, but the doctor was very kind, and I felt very peaceful and not scared in the slightest.  It was odd because the dream should have been stressful, but the whole time, I had this overwhelming sense that everything was going to be okay.

The night of June 17, 2021, I dreamt I was flying.  They say flying dreams are a good thing, that you feel you have control over your life.  If you struggle to fly, however, that means you feel as if you don’t have any power at all.  I used to have these dreams all the time.  They got worse and worse as the years went by, where I would fight to stay aloft, only to droop lower and lower in the sky until I could barely get more than a few feet off the ground.  Recently, however, these dreams have returned, and I’ve found myself soaring through the air with absolute freedom.  I still don’t actually feel like I have any control in my life, but I continue to hope that these dreams are a sign of good things to come.

In this particular dream, it was a combination of video games and real life.  I felt like I was really flying around, but I also was vaguely aware of controlling myself using Wii motion controls.  I was flying inside a giant and beautiful room that made me think of Hogwarts from the Harry Potter franchise.  I had so much fun flying all over the place just by holding my arms out from my sides, but then I decided to peek through this massive stained glass window in the back wall.  Outside was a seemingly endless army of Heartless from the Kingdom Hearts series, all kinds of variations, some I had seen before, and some I had not, including these tall, frightening ones that looked old and decrepit.  I was really worried that a big battle was coming and that I would need to warn other people, though I had doubts anyone would take me seriously.

On the night of June 18, 2021, I dreamt of this weird building.  I don’t remember the details super well, but it gave me a bad feeling, though I’m not sure why.  In one corner was this donut shop.  In real life, Mother Duck has been wanting Krispy Kreme donuts, but we can’t really get them easily.  In the dream, I was going to buy some for her, but by the time I got around to it, the case was empty.  Later on, more donuts were made, and I tried again.  I wanted to get those twisty glazed donuts, our favorite kind (though I don’t think Krispy Kreme makes that kind, do they?), but as I looked through them, they were suddenly more like large loaves of bread, and they hardly had any glaze on them, so I was having a hard time picking out any good ones.
