I had this one dream... it was wierd. Me and three of my friends were at some sort of play or something when suddenly I was transported to this strange world... There were oversized mushrooms, turnips, and these strange masks that would chase us all throughout the land. There were doors that lead to different dimensions and hearts and keys I had to collect. Eventually, I had to fight this giant pink thing that shot eggs at me. Not normal eggs, like ostrich eggs. I picked some of the eggs up and defeated the strange creature by throwing them at its face. Suddenly, I was in a dim room, it was grey and eerily lit, when suddenly, a Giant Green Alligator Jumped out of nowhere. There were turnips and hearts on the ground for no reason. I grabbed as many turnips as I could and knocked the green beast off his pedestal, thereby saving the entire world from certain distruction. I was being carried off into the sunset when I suddenly realized that it was all just a dream...
I dreamt that my friend (at 12 years old) had stolen a truck, and was driving wildly and causing wrecks. He was streaking down my street, and miraculously I could keep up with him, and I jumped in the truck while it was moving. I tried to stop him, and we fought over the wheel, but he steered the truck into the house next door to me and I jumped out just before it hit. The house immediately collapsed into a pile of bricks i couldn't find him in the bricks. Then I woke up. It took me awhile to recognize reality again.
This isn't a nightmare, but I once dreamt that I was the blue power ranger and it was my birthday. I was 6.
Is there any reason why you always wake up from a dream just before dying?
