A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes For Sea Turtles

Me: Morning Sunshine.

Captain: *yawns* Morning.

Me: I had the weirdest dream last night.

Captain: Me too! We went on vacation with Mailman Mike and Fairy and we went to this Atlantis-type resort and you were getting a massage and I was trying to find the pool and I had to go through all these mazes to find it and then I finally got there only I was in this compartment on the bottom of the pool and it was glass and I could see the bottom and it had a coral reef and there were these turtles swimming around and then the compartment filled with water and it carried me up to the top of the pool and then I started swimming around and there were these concrete ledges or something on the edge of the pool that you could walk on but you could swim in the deep part in the middle.

Me: *blink*

Captain: And the turtles were those sea turtles.

Me: *blink*

Captain: You know. *does swimming motion with arms* Glub.

Me: Where were Mike and Fairy?

Captain: I don't know, around.

Me: And the compartment filled with water.

Captain: Yeah.

Me: But you don't float, you always sink.

Captain: I know! That's the weird part.

Me: Oh yeah, that's the weird part.

Captain: What was your dream about?

Me: I was trying to put gas in my car and my credit card kept getting denied.

Captain: That's it?

Me: Yeah.

Captain: Huh.

Me: It was just odd because I don't even use credit cards anymore.

Captain: Right.

Me: What? That's a weird dream too!

Captain: You didn't have any sea turtles though.

Me: This isn't a competition.

Captain: If it were, you would totally lose.

Me: Ohmygod.

Captain: I'm just sayin'.

I had a dream the other night that I was trying to tell Jeremiah that I used all of our money to buy a convertible two seater and I couldn't talk. He took me to the hospital in the convertible and didn't even notice it. I like to think that he was just worried about the fact that I couldn't talk...but I'm sure that wouldn't be the case.

Wait. It's a dream.

And I'd ride around in your pocket all the time if you wanted me to. There's a small fee attached to that service though. One beeelllioonnn dollars.

I think my draem last night totally beats the Captian. I was on vacation in Barbados and everythign was going super awesome except this fucken drunk monkey that decided it was going to stalk and attack me the WHOLE damn vacation. So instead of being able to lounge and have fun I spent more time being paranoid about this drunk Gibbon that'd jump out of odd places to try to scratch and claw my face off.

Surfie said...

Hey, his vacation spot doesn't sound half bad. Tristachio's on the other hand...

I dream last night I was "dating" Al Roker. And he gave me a $700 bill not to tell his wife.

I win. Even with the sea turtles.

Aly said...

I want to have conversations like yours.

Janine@Shelf Life said...

Men are so competitive. I mean it's easy to out-dream someone. Really, there is NO way to fact-check dreams. He so totally cheated.

Sarah P said...

I want to swim in that pool.

BeckEye said...

The Captain has a point. Any dream without sea turtles is a dream wasted.

I had a weird dream recently that I was in WWII, but all of the details were messed up. Like, instead of invading Germany or something that would actually make sense, we were invading China from the sea. The whole reason that we were going to fight them was because they blew up one of our planes (the name of which is actually the plane that dropped the A-bomb in Japan). It was very intense and confusing, but I think that the worst part was that I was a history major in college - when I woke up, I was very disappointment in my subconsious for not being able to keep the details straight. I mean, come on, brain! You KNOW this stuff.

Laurnie said...

Haha I wish I could remember the lame/silly conversations I have with boyfriend to blog about them. Yours truly crack me up

Heather said...

Captain reminds me of my friend Toby and every time we get Toby drunk he says "You Lose! In your face!" and we all stare at him with blank expressions but then we get him drunk again the next weekend because it's so funny.

Have I told you today that I love you? Because I'm working hard on this stalker thing, and I think I am getting better. I love you!

just making my way said...

Yeah, I have to say, he totally wins.

Mama Wheaton said...

Sorry Captian wins this round hands down. Besides credit card rejection is more like a nightmare than just a dream. I also like the idea of swimming with turtles.

I get gas in my sleep too. My wife sometimes complains. Oh wait....

Houston said...

Just be glad that Captain Carl didn't try to pee in the pool otherwise you would have been participating in his "Watersports!"

Richard @ The Bewildered Brit said...

Sea Turtles in dreams are definitely the trump card, I'm afraid! :)

P.T said...

Hahaha...I dreamed of killing rats last night. Big, chunky rats...ewwgghhh...

Joanna Jenkins said...

I am trying to picture you two first thing in the morning having this conversation :-)

Ha!

Have a great weekend.
xo

Chris said...

So let me see if I've got this. You were dreaming of inserting something valuable into a slot and being repeatedly rejected, and Captain Carl was dreaming of struggling through mazes to find the warm, wet place where he could play with roughly breast-shaped objects. I think you may have been dreaming in unison.

diane said...

Admit it, Captn. Carl's dream blows yours out of the water (pun intended).

Ed Adams said...

Sea Turtles always trump Credit Cards.

It's a rule.

Char said...

Oh dear, I hate to say it, but the Capt. gets this one. I really tried to get into the gas and rejected credit card but....
;)

I did some research for you. Cuz that's the kind of guy I am (chronic masturbator):

To see a turtle in your dream, symbolizes wisdom, faithfulness, longevity, and loyalty.

There's nothing about a SEA turtle, though...so I'm guessing it just means that he really likes Billy Ocean.

Little Ms Blogger said...

Well, if it were a competition, Captain would win. However, not sure I would give him the win because he let Carlos be adopted by another family.

Btw, what happened to you as a judge?

I was having a lovely dream the other night and in the middle of it POW! Scott punched me in the back of the head. For no reason. I don't know what the hell he was dreaming about. I'm not going to ask because maybe he wasn't even asleep and he just felt like punching me in the back of the head.

No sea turtles were harmed in my dream.
