No matter how many weird dreams I have, I continue to be amazed at how weird dreams can be. The one I had last night may be the strangest.
I was my adult self and I was playing kids games with all of my adult friends outside what I am pretty sure was my childhood home. At some point during all of our frivolity, a large something falls down and hits me on my right upper arm. The impact of this hit forces almost my entire humerus bone to be forced out of my elbow in some macabre Wolverine-like claw.
“Someone should probably take me to the hospital”, I state matter of factly as I pull the rest of the bone from the orifice.
What ensues is a giant argument among my friends as to who will take me to the hospital. At one point they decide that they’ll all take me and pile into a sub-compact car leaving no room for me to fit in the car. At another point, I somehow lose my erstwhile attached humerus and a great hunt commenced. “Guys, if someone hid my humerus, this isn’t funny”, I said proving that even in my dreams I crack crappy puns.
I also remember being really weirded out by the motions I was able to still perform with my hand and that despite my missing bone, I was able to put pressure on my arm. There was no pain and no blood to speak of.
I woke up before we ever figured out how to get me to the hospital. Worst friends evar.
