Singers, doctors and a hammer
I usually don't remember my dreams and I miss it a lot. To dream is like to live a little bit more while you're sleeping. A way of taking advantage of that period of time when you do nothing at all except resting.
Tonight I had a very strange dream. When I woke up I tried to remember all the details I could because I didn't want to forget it. It's strange how our mind works when we sleep. Everything has sense in its own way and it doesn't need to have anything to do with the real life.
Well, my dream started, or at least is the first thing I remember, with me going up the stairs in my old school because I was late for a clash. Vicente, a friend of mine from Pamplona, who I didn't even know when I went to that school (this is the first of the nonsenses), was with me. Don't know very well what were we talking about, something about him working and studying at the same time. When I got to the clashrooms door I thought that I had to change and that's what I did (why? don't know, don't look for any logic in it).
Some details may not be important for the whole story, but it's a dream, not a film. I'm just adding them because I want to write everything I dreamt.
Then we entered inside the clashroom. I think that the teacher looked a little bit like "Niles Crane", from the "Frasier" tv show. My desk was near Pepe's desk (another friend from Pamplona). Behind me there were two classmates from my school, Felipe and Miguel. They are cousins. One of them, Miguel, was the usual boy looking for problems all the time, at least when he was very young, during our last years at school I think he changed a little bit. The thing is that both of them started to threaten me, don't remember with what purpose. It was strange because I tried to argue with them in the way I think nowadays but they were still two children talking in a children's way.
The next part takes place in a kids playground. There's a big slide in the middle of it, all surrounded by trees. I think its autumn. I'm trying to put a small dead tree near the slide but Miguel is on the top of it and he doesn´t let me do it.
From the playground we appear sat on the seats of a school bus. In front of me is Miguel, and this is the moment when the dream starts to become weird. At my side there's Avril Lavigne. We started to talk. I was very nervous because I was trying to listen to her but the only thing I could thinkg about was that I wanted to kiss her, and when our faces were very close that's what I did. The strangest thing of all is that I don't fancy the singer at all, she doesn't even seem pretty to me, but that's what I felt when I was dreaming. And while we were kissing I could feel Miguel looking at us jealously. A total success.
After that I remember Avril and me at my school, but this time the school is some kind of hospital. We are sat there and in front of us, behind his table, is a doctor telling us that Avril is going to die because of a strange disease. We start to get very sad, but suddenly Avril notices some colours in a notebook and that's a reason enough for the doctor to know that she is nos suffering that disease, so she is not going to die. I know, no logic at all again.
We don't have time to celebrate anything because at that moment Avril's parents decide that they are going to move to another city, so we are not going to see each other again. Some relatives of mine come to say goodbye. My little nephew is also there. He is just some months old but is very big and starts to climb up the sofa to get some cookies that are there. He shouldn't be able to do that because he is still very young, but in my dream he seemed older than he really is.
In our last night together we decide to have a romantic dinner at home. In this part of the dream I notice that I am Dr. Gregory House. In some strange kind of way I can see myself from the outside, and it's me but with Hugh Lauries body. I took some food from the school's kitchen for dinner.
The last part, and my favourite one, takes place some months later. It's a very cinematographic one. The dream goes on as if a camera went through my hypothetical apartment, everything is white, the furniture, the walls, the floor, and it´s all a mess, things broken, the floor full of rubish. I remember a hamburguer near the phone with notes written on it with ketchup and mustard. At the end we can see a crystal table broken and a hammer near it. Then everything stops. Suddenly it all starts to go backwards from the end to the begining. Everything gets as it was before, all put in order. The table gets fixed and we see that it was broken with the hammer, then the hammer appears in my hand. I'm still Dr. House and I'm repairing something. The phone rings. I pick up and someone tells me that Avril Lavigne has died.
And at that moment I woke up.
