I'm in a part of town I've only been to once before with a friend. I decide to return home by the scenic route she used. It's raining pretty heavily, but I set off down the dirt road anyway. It goes through the woods and is a nice drive.
Pretty soon, I realize that the car is sliding a little bit and slow down even more. The road begins it's decent to the bottom of the hill and soon I see that the creek the road crosses is too high for me to drive through now. I look for a place to turn the car around but the road is a slippery mess and there are big boulders on both sides. I'm pinned here until the water goes down and I can drive through to the other side. I think about walking back to where the road begins, but I'm wearing flip-flops and that hill is getting slipperier by the minute. I can't decide what to do.
And then I think....time to wake up! I'm sure not going to stay asleep trying to work my way out of this conundrum for the next hour. So instead of getting another hour of rest, which I still need, I'm here telling you about it.
Do you do this? Wake yourself up from a dream you don't want to dream?
