Weird Dreams, Disrupted Sleep and Work
I must be anxious about something. Last night I kept dreaming about work. In particular I kept dreaming about being unable to do a particular task at work, about trying repeatedly to do it and not succeeding. It's an important task, a time-critical one and somewhat complex. It's also one I do speedily and flawlessly whenever it's required of me. In real life I can do this in my sleep. In my sleep I couldn't do it to save my life!

I finally gave up on sleeping around 5:30 and worked on fanfic for a little while, then played some Scrabble. At 7:45 as I was getting ready to leave for work when someone sent me an email asking me to - yes - do my dream task right away. I did it speedily and flawlessly and finished getting dressed.

I'm tired.

Sorry you lost sleep. Dreams are how our brains file memories; they don't necessarily make sense.

My philosophy of dreams is clearly enunciated in that modern classic, The Berenstain Bears and the Bad Dream. Mama Bear agrees with you :-).

I'm guessing it's been 7 years since you read that out loud to Zara; it's made a lasting impression. One more thing I missed out on by not having kids.

How strange! Maybe all that prophetic dreaming has worn you out!

Oh I think the dreaming - and waking - wore me out, prophetic or no. But last night was much better.

See, that's what the answer is! I should have written fanfic then!
