I remember, when we were kids, David and I (and then Cathy) had lots of puzzles. I like jigsaw puzzles, but I haven't done one in years. (YD also likes jigsaw puzzles, but she likes to take the pieces away and eat them, so I don't even try with her around.) Anyways, we had those hard puzzles. I don't know what they were made of, but it was like thin drywall. The pieces were stiff and unbending (yes, I know you're not supposed to bend the pieces. Again, YD likes to play with them) and painted to match each other so you could put them together. IDK what they're made out of. I don't think they were wood, at least not all of them. Anyways, we had lots of them. I only remember one (awake) and it was cute. The scene was a forest scene on top, but when you took the pieces out, there were animals hiding in the forest. Bunnies, chipmunks, birds, squirrels, even a fox kit. I had a dream about that and other puzzles, but I can't remember anything about any of the others. I remembered them in my dream though. So here's the dream.
I was ill at first. As you all know, I'm weird. I have this thing that I do when I'm overtired and can't sleep. It's an audio hallucination. I know it's a hallucination, but it still keeps me up. I'm laying there, trying to sleep, and there's this sound in the background. It's barely there, just the sound of a gentle breeze through the trees. Then, in about half a second, it jumps in volume to the sound of a chainsaw being used. It's horribly loud. Wakes me right up. And it happens over and over. So I'm sleeping tonight, but I'm dreaming that I can't sleep and I'm having this horrible auditory hallucination. And it keeps waking me up, over and over, in my dream. Finally, it goes away, and suddenly, I'm an adult, trying to put the puzzles together. And every time I go to put a piece in, my mom tries to take it away from me and do it herself. It was so frustrating, it woke me up. Weird... So now I'm up and can't go back to sleep. I think I'll stitch for a bit. Hope everyone else is sacked out in dreamland!!!!
