Dream 20030322, 7:40 AM:
For some reason, I am upset and frustrated. This whole dream has an “I’m going to break down and cry for no reason” feel to it. I am at the house, and have some sort of argument with Chris. I don’t feel angry, so much as just in a sad blue funk. I go outside, get into my car, and drive away.
I want to go to Milana’s. I drive east on LBJ, and then I realize that I’m not sure where I’m going. After thinking about it for a moment, I remember that Milana lives at 2050 or 2520 Mockingbird. I turn down a street that is really more like where Greenville is, but in the dream it’s Mockingbird. I drive down it a ways, then without any transition, I am walking along an area that seems like a cross between a coffee shop, a mall food court, and a row of buildings. There are people at a coffee bar sitting at long-legged stools, laughing and talking. The bar and the area around it are decorated in very modern charcoal gray and black. There are address numbers on little signs, and I know that somehow Milana’s apartment is tucked in to this area. I finally find the right number, and go inside.
I visit with Milana briefly, then I go into a bedroom, and take off my clothes like I am about to go to bed. I then realize that I’m not supposed to be going to bed now, and I look around and find my pajamas, and put those on. I go out into the living room, and I’m talking to Milana about how upset I am; she says something about how if I let her (another friend?) get started, I’ll cry all night. She suggests that I might as well just plan on staying over. As she is telling me this, I am slumped sideways in an overstuffed chair, feeling pathetic and unmotivated. *end*
