Scary Dream

Usually when have a really scary dream I wake up and go right back to sleep and then I can’t remember the specifics of it when I wake up later on. Often I then regret that I didn’t force myself to stay awake and write down the dream while it was still fresh in my memory. Well this time I made myself get up. I am writing this at 5:52 eastern time and here is my dream.

I dreamed I was in a house I’ve never seen and I’ve never been in before. I’m asleep in some remote hallway of the house and I’m all by myself, or so I think. I am awakened by a small voice and I look over to see an apparition. It’s an approximately six month old ghostly baby. It’s calling me.

“Mike. . . Mike. . . Tell Mario. . . that I’m ok. Tell him. . . that I don’t hurt anymore.”

I’ve heard about this sort of thing before. Somebody dies and crosses over to the next life, but they have a message they want to get back to this side so they make contact. In this case Mario is my first cousin. Among other things, we share the same birthdate (two years apart) so perhaps this is entity is contacting me because it presumes the shared birthdate gives me a spiritual link with my cousin or something. At any rate I know that this message is for him so I ask:

“Who. . . Who are you?”

The chilling reply comes back “Kunla Pedra.”

That’s not anyone I’ve ever heard of and I’m not even sure it’s a real name. But it’s a fuckin’ baby so I give some lee-way as it might have mispronounced it’s own name. The important thing for is to establish the relationship-identity. Fighting through intense grogginess I manage to make myself ask:

“Who are you to him?”

Ghostly baby hesitates, then replies “I don’t know.”

“Then why” I begin, still slurring and drowsy, but now also annoyed, “would I tell him that?”

This is the first time in my life that I’ve rejected the request of a baby from beyond the grave and I’m not sure how it’s gonna respond but I’m kind of imagining the reaction panhandlers in from of the corner store act when you don’t give them change so before this thing can get a chance to respond I run out of the room.

The end!

    I had a dream the other night where I woke up with my pj’s and panties around my knees. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a sex dream. I’m still amazed that I didn’t wake myself up when I was pushing down my clothes, lol. I must be the most fun girl ever, I even get nekked in my sleep.

  4. maybe Mexi’s dead baby wanted to see your snooch…

    I bet it was an El Salvadorian trying to trick you into marrying them for citizenship.

  6. Kunla Pedra sounds more like an Indian baby tryin to buy some weed from a dealer named Mario

  7. Mexigogue says:

    I don’t know but it scared the shit out of me and I didn’t go back to sleep for 45 minutes.

  8. Mexi: That was a TERRIBLE ending. The least you could have done was wake up in a cold sweat.

    Nice Rack: If we went camping and you woke up alone with your pants down to your ankles and vaseline smeared all over your ass would you tell anyone?


    Do you want to go camping?

  9. Nice Rack says:

    CQ: That part of my body is totally off-limits, even with vaseline, so no camping for me.

    Where are you Mexi? I need yo to tell Mario that if he doesn’t change his ways he will be visited by three ghosts

    I just spit my coffee all over my computer. I knew it was a reason I slowed down reading my friends blogs. I don’t get any work done and have to buy new key boards all the time.

    Camping! That is a classic!

  13. Do you like camping, Detroit?

  14. Mario says:

    Doesn’t know who he is to me, huh? He knows he owes me eighteen motherfucking dollars! First it was this, “I’m a baby” shit, and now it’s “I’m a dead baby?” Fuck that! As soon as I get this noose tied, I’m getting my money!
