I can't remember shit from today's dream. But whatever.. As an adjunct to this discussion though, I must say that that some of these I remembered are on nights where the day before I have been thinking about dreams or thinking 'I wish I could remember my dream tonight!', and although I didn't think of this in my actual dream it must have affected my subconscious somehow and allowed me to remember it.
Anyway heres the dream.
Part 1: Something about a childcare center. It was surely related to my IRL 'traumatic experience' of being tricked by a little blond girl on a playground, even though I was several years older than her.
Part 2: I remember this more vividly, but there are still many chunks missing.
Me, and another Japanese guy around the same age as me, were in a survival situation in the rural areas of Japan. It was based in the modern day, and we wore backpacks and we both carried a Mosin-Nagant rifle on our backs. My Japanese friend was less emotionally strong as me.
Apparently we have been away from civilisation for several days and were running out of food. We were riding on a strange watercraft, apparently a sort of 'frog jet ski' that moved in pulses, across a very large lake towards a more solid marshy area in the middle that was covered in tall grasses. I was driving the frog jet ski, with the Japanese guy piggybacking on me like they do on motorcycles, and a voiceover explained that the frog jet ski was the last watercraft engine of its kind as if we were in a documentary. When we got to the marshy land, we both walked onto the soft ground, pushing away bullrushes to make our way through. About two steps inside the marsh we nearly bump into a snake. The Japanese guy peeps a little out loud and is visibly in a panic. I calmly stand ground, bring my Mosin-Nagant up to my shoulder, peer down the iron sights and accurately shoot the head off the snake.
My friend asked me whether we should eat the snake (only the venomous head is poisonous). I decided not to bring it with us, because 'snakes are the spiritual protectors of good hair' (probably not true IRL).
After this, for some reason we find ourselves in my old house, except it was my old house before we moved out: with the kitchen table and fax machine and all the usual furnishings inside it. I see my older brother there too. We and my friend raid the kitchen for supplies, but al the cupboards are almost bare- all the stuff was taken, and only marginally useful stuff like dry oatmeal and flour were left behind. We conspire to come back to the old house once we finished our mission and resupply it, so the next adventurer who comes might have some stuff to take in an emergency.
The fax machine rings, and I think the Japanese guy picks up the phone, and its his mother. Anyway, after this we find ourselves in the lake again. We no longer have the frog jet ski, and are swimming breast stroke style with our heads bobbing above the water.
Someone calls the Japanese guy's mobile phone, and he picks up. After that, we continue swimming towards some bullrushes in a slightly more shallow region of the lake. Again, the Japanese guy's mobile rang again. He suddenly froze as if he came under a shocking realisation, and told me his mobile is almost out of power. I say that we can go back to my old house, which has power supply and isn't too far away. However, he says even if that place has power, it doesn't have the right adapter for his phone. I think about the unfortunate situation my friend is in. Nobody ever called me and I rarely needed to use my own mobile, however, he was well connected and people often called him, thus draining his power whilst mine was still at full capacity. I groaned at the prospect of having to hike back for several days to his house just to recharge, and thus fail the mission.
We ignore this and continue swimming towards the bullrushes. Suddenly, a helicopter pops out of the distant mountains and heads directly towards us. The helicopter hovers above us for about 30 seconds, carefully looking at us to see whether we were criminals. The Japanese guy is completely still, obviously trepidated. I too hoped that the helicopter wouldn't mistake us for criminals and suddenly rain machine gun fire upon us in our helpless state.
After what seemed like an unbearable short amount of time, I, in an impulsive act, suddenly smiled at the guy in the helicopter and made a thumbs up sign. The situation lightened up considerably and we could see the guy in the helicopter put his thumbs up too. As if to apologise for freaking us out, he reached into a bucket and threw a handful of wrapped hard candies into the water around us two times, before flying off into the distance. The candies floated. The Japanese guy grabbed the candies immeadiatly around him but didn't try to grab any more. I tried to grab as many as I could, swimming everywhere and shoving the floating candies into my pocket. Some of the candies were slowly floating away downstream, and I swam as fast as I could to catch up to them. The Japanese guy asked me why that hell was I taking candy so seriously? I replied that the candy was packed with sugar, and although it was dearth of nurtition, it would give us energy should we come into a pinch with our remaining food.
Then, I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock.
