Sweet Covid Dreams

January is gone, slipped by when I wasn’t watching and now here I am holding February in my hands. It’s a good feeling.

I recently saw an interview on CBC with Margaret Atwood. Among the things they talked about, Margaret asked the interviewer if she’d had a Covid-dream yet and then admitted to having had one herself. I thought that was interesting. I had heard about people having Covid-dreams before, but I hadn’t had any myself. It made me start wondering if this was a big thing for people. I wasn’t sure if I should feel fortunate or a teensy bit left out.

But then low and behold, I had a dream of my own just last night. I’m pretty sure this whole interview with Margaret Atwood was playing on my subconscious and, who knows, maybe I’ve had them in the past but just didn’t remember them. Dreams are like that.

So here’s the dream:

We were visiting my son and his family. We hadn’t seen them for quite some time due to restrictions. In the dream, I noticed that my daughter-in-law’s sister was also there. I immediately began counting to see if we were under our number of 10 for gatherings, and as I counted, I came up with 11. (Not sure how, as that still would have only added up to 8, but strange things happen in dreams, right?)

I was getting a little agitated at that point but then suddenly the house had more people and I knew we were WAY over the 10 person limit. I told my son we would leave, but as we stepped outside there were people sitting on the grass and lounging around. I mean really? Why did he invite so many people over, the twerp? I was getting really upset at that point. Once again I took count. There were over 30. I knew someone would report them for having a large gathering, but not only that, I worried about our chance of exposure to the virus. He had put us all at risk.

What was wrong with this son of mine? He’d been so sensible in the past

But then I woke up, as people often do in dreams, before finding out what the conclusion was. Think I’m going to track down that son of mine and get to the bottom of this covid-dream, find out who he thinks he is having a house full of people over during a pandemic. Sheesh! he is in trouble.

I’m curious to know if any of you have had a covid-dream yet. I wouldn’t mind hearing about it if you have.

    I think you were having flashbacks of days gone by when things were more normal. Maybe it was a premonition of better days to come?

  2. No Covid dreams yet. (That I recall anyway) not surprising that folks are having them, though. It is all people talk about and on the news constantly. Let’s talk about puppies and then we can dream about them. Xo

    • I agree, and a lot of people are posting wonderful photos of places they’ve travelled 😉 and so many beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I was surprised that I had a dream and think it was probably prompted by the Atwood interview.
