[I don't know if I can take it...]
Dream One
I had a dream that I was back home, in Salt Lake. I lived in my mother's neighborhood, only a few houses down from her. It was a simple life, and I enjoyed it. I walked to work every day, and I had neighbors to help me with groceries.

It was almost perfect.

I was walking my little brother to school, and I noticed that one of the neighbors I didn't know very well was moving. I waved to him, and he laughed and waved back. I didn't think much of it while taking my brother the rest of the way to school, and he and I talked about dinosaurs and airships the whole time.

On the way back, I paused and stopped at the neighbor's house to offer my help. He was an older guy, so I felt that it was something good I could do. He accepted my help, and I started moving the things from his garage to the truck. A couple hours later, I was tired, his garage was empty, and he brought out lemonade and we sat under a tree. I texted this guy, letting him know that I was sweaty and tired, and could use a cuddle.

He texted back, saying "Well if you were home, I totally would. Too bad you aren't answering your door."

In shock, I excused myself, and ran home. And there the guy was, just sitting on my porch, looking rather embarrassed. He had wanted to surprise me, and though I was surprised, it wasn't the kind he was hoping for.

I invited him in, and we spent the day just living normally. We talked, and we laughed, and we experienced the small things that made life wonderful.

We cooked dinner together, and because I remembered he said he wanted to try it, I made mini meatloaf, and he made potatoes and gravy to go with it. We ate, and we watched a silly movie, and ended up going to bed together. It was something incredible. For that moment, in a silly dream, I felt complete.

Like that was the life I was supposed to live.

It's strange, but in my dreams, all I want is to live normally. Have a happy life, with no complications. So when he and I just spent the day together, and then went to bed together, it felt so natural that I didn't mind it at all.

My dreams. They're both puzzling, and extraordinarily comforting.
