I hadn’t really kept track, but for some time there I wasn’t remembering any of my dreams. Now it seems I’m back in a dream-phase where every morning I wake up thinking, “What the fuck?” Especially when people like Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame appear.
Last night’s excitement wasn’t really that mindblowing — not in a “boy, that was weird” sense, anyway. In the dream, the Pater had inherited an old house, left to him by an old Finlander (yes, it was. Don’t ask me how I know this.). The Pater didn’t want to keep it, so he gave it to B.E. and myself. So the first thing we did was go and tour it.
In the dream, the house was just down the street from the Mater’s and Pater’s place, although the street was completely different from reality, and no house like this exists where M&P live.
The building was massive. Three storeys, each still fully furnished, as though the owner had simply stepped out and not returned. There was a darkness to it, as in dark walls and not much light, and for a moment in the dream I worried that something creepy was going to happen. I suppose my subconscious convinced itself otherwise, as the tone of the dream lightened, and all we did was explore the various rooms. I’m not kidding when I say the place was massive. The main floor alone held five bedrooms, plus an office, living room, dining room, and kitchen. I don’t remember seeing a bathroom, but I’m sure it was there.
It was very much like a rabbit warren — short staircases going up and down, twisty hallways, long passageways. And the decor was a throwback to the ’70s — fluffy shag carpeting, funky wallpapers, retro furniture. It was crazy. I also remember the smell — it wasn’t bad, just stuffy and stale, as though the windows hadn’t been opened in a long time. The kind of smell you notice when going to older people’s houses. Dry and a little dusty.
Finally, we had gone to look in the back yard, and while at first it was normal, the next time we looked at it, it had turned into a small, paved municipal-type parking lot. I remember being excited about this and telling B.E. that we could rent out parking spaces and make money! Wasn’t that great!
That’s about where it ended. I wish I could go back and explore that house some more, but I know that’s not likely to happen. It would be cool, though.
