The Duck Dreams of Urban Exploring and a Witch

The night of December 5, 2022, I had a dream where a group of people and I were urban exploring.  It’s something that I have never engaged in in real life, though I do enjoy watching Youtube videos where people explore abandoned buildings, whether they be homes, hospitals, or anything in between.  As we drove through a neighborhood to our location, we saw this terrifying person that resembled some sort of evil fairytale witch.

The Duck Dreams of Dinosaurs in My House

The night of August 28, 2022, I had a dream where my room was situated at the end of a long hallway.  While my room had an ordinary door, at the other end of the hallway was a large, thick door that was a lot sturdier.  Both doors were currently broken, however, and wouldn’t close properly.  And this would probably be less of a problem if dinosaurs didn’t wander into the house every night!

The Duck Dreams of Loose Teeth

The night of October 24, 2022, I had one of those awful dreams where my teeth were falling out.  Mother Duck and I were living in our previous house, and all of a sudden, my teeth started feeling loose.  I ended up spitting out one tooth, and then another and another.  I tell Mother Duck what’s going on, and she says we need to go to the dentist and see if they can put my teeth back in.  But teeth just keep falling out, and I can feel all of my remaining teeth wiggling around.  They’re so loose, in fact, that I can hear them scraping together at the slightest movement, and I can barely talk around a mouthful of loose teeth!  I remember thinking, I wish this was a dream, but this feels too real and has lasted far too long to be a dream at this point.  So of course, I was super relieved when I woke up, noting with relief that all my teeth were firmly planted in place.

The Duck Dreams of Angry Blankets and Happiness

The night of September 28, 2022, I had a strange combination of dreams.  In the first one, one of the blankets on my bed developed a mind of its own and would try to push me out of bed.  It was very creepy.  I would try to sleep in my bed several times, only for one of the blankets to move on its own and shove me aside.  Fortunately, my next dream was much more pleasant.

The Duck Dreams of Making Burgers with King Dedede

For whatever reason, I seem to have a lot of recurring dreams about food, particularly sweets.  I guess I just have fond memories of the rare occasions when Mother Duck and I have visited a bakery and returned home with a big pink box filled with goodies.  And so that might explain the theme of two such dreams I had the nights of August 24 and 25 of 2022.

The Duck Dreams of a Haunted Hotel by the Sea

The night of July 12, I dreamt about this old town by the sea.  Mother Duck and I, along with our two cats Rosalina and Carmelita, had been staying in this one old hotel, but a new one was built high on this cliff.  Although it was new, it was also a perfect replica of an old building that used to exist in that same spot, complete with furniture and the like.

There’s an Alien in Our Backyard!

One night, Mother Duck and I spotted a lizard on the exterior wall of our house, just chilling next to an outdoor light.  But when we really looked at it, we mused that there was something decidedly…off about it.  In order to get a closer look, we zoomed in with our camera phone and took a few photos, confirming our suspicions that this little creature was quite bizarre indeed.

Soap Making with the Ducks

Mother Duck and I recently tried soap making.  And by “making” soap, I really mean the kit we picked up at the local craft store tasked us with melting down pre-existing soap squares and adding scents and colors.  The scents included were vanilla, citrus, and herb, in order of most pleasant to least, and the only option available for coloring was this rose powder, meaning the soaps could range between white and varying shades of pink.

The Duck Dreams of Safety Behind Locked Doors

The nights of June 14 and 15, 2022, I had two very similar dreams, leading me to ponder whether or not I should take some deeper meaning from them.  In the first dream, a friend was visiting my house (which was unlike anywhere I’ve ever actually lived).  She and I went to my room to do something fun, the details of which I forget, but our excitement turned to fear when a bad person living with us became aggravated.  I can’t remember too well what he was upset about or what he was trying to do, but we locked the door and proceeded to stare at it in terror, hoping with bated breath that he wouldn’t get inside and harm us.  Eventually, the feeling of danger passed, but the unease didn’t fully dissipate.
