Carnival Drive – Dreams

So this is an odd one.

It’s several hours since I’ve been awake so the details of this dream are a bit sketchy.

I remember being at some sort of public amusement venue. It feels like an Aquarium. I’m with one of Andrea’s uncles (Brian) and his two friends. Brian is taking us home. He tells us to get in his car so we can go home. His car happens to be a Pontiac Grand Am. This is the car that Andrea owned in real life before we purchased the new car. I remember wanting to make the comment but I never do, that this car is way cleaner than how Andrea used to keep hers.

I seem to remember having a hard time getting out of the parking lot. A lot of back and forth until we get to the gates. The location is a bit weird. It feels like the country. I see a lot of open space by the road side. It reminds me of the countryside from Smallville as seen in the Superman films, not the TV show.

I’m in the passenger side front seat with Brian driving. His friends are in the back seat.

As we’re driving we keep running into blocked off roads. Apparently there was some crazy storm and there is massive flooding all around. I remember reaching a bridge that has been destroyed. We’re stopped at the edge of the drop off and its surrounded by water. There are cars behind us honking. And every few seconds you can see cars going full speed into the water. I remember seeing a jeep and a semi truck just plunge into the water. Its crystal clear and I can see the vehicles driving around completely submerged as if just below the service there is no water. Even though we can see the cars moving freely underwater we do not choose to follow them. Somehow we are able to hop across the bridge… or maybe we find another way around. I cant remember to well.

I think we try to follow the semi actually. As if we backed up off the bridge, and then veered off to the side of the bridge and went down and under it. We eventually come up to a bunch of cars that are trying to negotiate down a one way street. It feels like a parking lot. And somehow we end up in a Carnival. I see people walking around and there are rides and lights all around us. We are still in the car though. And it seems important for us to just keep going trying to get home. We aren’t driving through the carnival though. We are trying to drive over it. There is a wooden walkway or something that goes over a few of the carnival game buildings. As we are driving we notice that we are running out of space on the left and ride side. Somehow we are now driving over houses. Or sides of houses towards the backyards. We’re definitely on roof tops. And our goal is just to get off the rooftops and onto the street. Eventually we are on like a shed and we are just one more backyard away from the street but there is a chimney blocking out path. I finally get out of the car trying to figure out how we will get down off the roof top. Should we just hit the gas and hope the car will hold up against the fall? I notice the gates are locked. Cause I feel even if we get off the shed roof, how will we get out of the backyard? Then I think why didn’t we just drive through the carnival, surely there would have been a front gate we could have driven out of.

I just remembered there was also a part of the dream where I am back in my mom’s house in Queens. And I’m in the basement. Only this is before it was remodeled. And even before I lived in the basement cause I think it belongs to my brother. It is late, like passed midnight. And him and his friends are pulling into the driveway. I remember that it is his old friends that he is with. Theres a movie playing on the TV. I’m in his room but he isn’t upset. (Thinking now, this reminds me of the one time I was hanging out in my brothers room and I think I was playing Starcraft or Warcraft, and him and his friends go out to do something, and several hours later at like 3am they all come back and I haven’t moved an inch, I’m still playing the same video game. I remember Luis saying HOLY CRAP YOU’RE STILL PLAYING!”. That was real.) I don’t remember too much of this part of the dream. I kinda remember there being 3 rooms in the basement. And I’m alone and I want to go to sleep but the basement is unfinished. Just concrete. I open a door to this closet and there is a bed in there, but the walls. There is something wrong with the walls. They dont come all the way down. There is a foot of open space between the floor and the walls. And I’m scared to sleep on the bed cause bugs and rats can come out from the gap. There is another room that is connected to the closet and I look in there and there are more beds. And its dark and the floor is still this unfinished basement floor. And I’m still too afraid of rats or bugs to use these beds.

That’s all I remember.

It was weird.
