I had another dream, but nothing like the one from the other night. This one was a dream brought on, I believe, by the recent news of home invasions in near-by cities, one of which was a friend of ours. Anyway, in my dream my front door had been left unlocked and just as I was realizing this, a man barged in on me. I had time to go get a gun, but when I shot at him the gun was empty (I've had this dream SOOOO many times). I toss the gun and go to the kitchen to get a knife (actually I get several). When I throw one of the knives at the man, he catches it and smiles wickedly. By now there are several men inside the home. That's really the extent of my dream since my alarm clock woke me up. As I mentioned, I have had dreams like this before where I was trying to defend myself but my gun would be empty or something similar. I wonder if this is because subconsciously I don't really want to kill anyone. Have you ever dreamt similar things? What do you make of it? In case you haven't noticed, I consider dreams to be important. Of course I know that sometimes I dream crazy dreams because I had too much spicey food right before bed, or because I'm feverish, but otherwise I like to think about my dreams and try and figure them out; at least try and figure out WHY I had the dream, not necessarily it's meaning.
