  1. Couldn’t get that pic on the RFS show art to work right, so I substituted a different one. Man, that’s weird.

    And to clarify, I wasn’t saying Yoko ruined the Beatles as a band, just that she ruined their attempt at a rendition of A Quick One (While He’s Away) by the Who. 😝

  3. Doc, you might be surprised at how common those “exam” dreams are. I discussed this with a few colleagues a while back and all of them had similar dreams. For me they have mostly stopped, but my typical dream was that I cut a class so much that I forgot where the class was! (I never skipped class so I don’t know where this came from). In the dream I’d forgotten where the class was (room number)and I searched the halls looking for it – and trying to run but had legs of stone and could only move slowly. I graduated college when I was 22 years old and, although they are quite infrequent now, I had these dreams routinely through my 30’s and early 40’s.

    Recently (a couple of months ago) I had one in the days leading up to a national rifle competition. I dreamed that I was on the firing line but was totally unprepared for the match. My rifle was in disrepair, I didn’t have the right ammo, etc.
    Everyone was looking at me thinking “what is that guy doing?”

    The brain does funny things…

    I enjoyed your comments!

  4. That inability to move anything other than slowly is something I forgot to mention – in those anxiety dreams it always frustrated my attempts to rectify the situation! I’m glad I’m not the only one afflicted by the exam anxiety dreams. The funny thing is that I never seemed to have them when I was actually taking exams – only years later. Some of them were so vivid that even after I woke up, I’d spend a few minutes lying in bed, panicking over a course I hadn’t done the work for, before remembering that it was just a dream!

  5. That struggle to move is something I have had often in anxiety dreams. I sometimes wonder if I am fighting from within the dream to overcome the paralysis of REM sleep. I suppose it remains helpful for keeping us from falling out of trees during a nap, but I don’t sleep in trees anymore. I’m not sure if I ever have, but my body seems to have a genetic memory of these things. Movements of self-defense thwarted by a struggle to move. My common exam dream is realizing that I have completely neglected some class and forgotten all about it. I can’t believe that I have done this and suddenly remember that I have failed to attend since the beginning of the semester. It’s a panic over the test and anger at myself for being such an idiot.

    Recently I dreamed that I was lost in a hotel and was trying to find my room. During the search, I went into a restroom and realized that I was pantless. A lady came in and chastised me for being there. I covered myself and left only to get outside and realize that I had been in the men’s room after all, but I still had no idea where my room was located. I finally made it back to my room, but I could not find the button that was required to close the door between us and the next-door room. The light switches didn’t work correctly and I told my wife that this hotel was horrible.

    Doc, those vivid dreams with such a strong sense of reality that they linger after we have awakened are a terrific reminder of the thin nature of our illusion of sanity. No matter how long or how convincing, it could all be changed by a sudden moment of new clarity.
