You know...

  • When you suddenly find yourself back in high school,
  • and you're the oldest student there,
  • and you spend an hour in the bathroom working on your make-up before first period,
  • but your lipstick keeps smudging,
  • and you redo it again and again like an act of madness,
  • and then on your way to class you realize that you never signed up for any electives,
  • so they assigned you available classes at random,
  • and you walk into a darkened auditorium with slides of bad art flashing across the projector screen,
  • and the teacher brutally mocks everyone coming in the door,
  • and emasculates the only guy in the class and sends him packing,
  • and then sneeringly inquires whether *any* of you know the slightest thing about the British Parliamentary system,
waking up to the alarm clock and going to work can be a beautiful relief.

Re: see, that *is* nice
My subconsicous tried that. But Rodney kept running abandoning the rest of the team and me to do Scientist-y Things. Poo.

The only way that could have been worse is if you were naked in the dream. (!!!)

If she were naked and couldn't find her locker (or remember her locker combination.) I have that dream a couple of times a year. Usually right before or after I dream that I'm still stuck in retail hell working at Target.

Here's hoping for better dreams tonight!

Ack! High school dreams! Seriously, few dreams are worse.

I have nightmares of being back in school. I suppose it doesn't help that I only left it six months ago.

Oh wow. You have those back in high school dreams too?

I'm usually in trouble for not going to band and practicing my clarinet. Also, I'm usually asked for a project or told about a test for a class I never attended.

When will these weird dreams end? I'm 43. How long will they go on?

I hated teachers like that. We had one wizened prune of a French teacher who persisted in going over the same slides of the Basque region, and picking on the most clueless girl in the class to answer questions - she'd keep badgering this one poor girl until we were all nearly screaming.

I'm 52. I've been on the other side of the desk, as a teacher, for the past 30 years. I still get student nightmares (don't know the school, can't find the classes, don't have a locker I can open, and it turns out to be final exams when I thought it was the first day). I just hope (and try) very hard not to be creating these in my own students!

Good grief. Thank you for that little trip down trauma lane, thank you. Never going back, you can't make me, oi.

Sweeter dreams to you tonight, m'dear. Perhaps they will involve Rodney McKay and small green turtles? *g*
