Weird Dream

I don't usually remember my dreams, because the clowns that haunt them are kind enough to let me forget them when I wake up. That's why one of my favorite mottos is: "Can't sleep - the clowns will get me. Can't sleep - the clowns will get me."

Anyway, this morning I woke up with a dream fresh in my mind. Here are the details:

1. I was meeting my wife Ivana after work every day. She worked in a large building. I'm pretty sure it was a bank headquarters.

2. While waiting for her one day outside the building, I looked up and saw elevated train tracks, pretty high up. The only problem was that a large piece of the train track was missing.

3. Suddenly, I see a train traveling on the track right towards the piece that is missing. I brace myself for the horrible consequences.

4. However, the train appears to continue on its merry way over the missing track. I now realize that the track isn't missing, it's simply transparent in that area. (Note, that the track appears to be hanging in the air with no support beneath).

5. I breathe a sigh of relief but it's short-lived because now that the train has continued its journey, I see two trucks coming down the track as well but now a piece of the invisible track, now somewhat visible to me, appears to be a drawbridge and is rising.

6. The first truck makes it over because the rising track has just begun to rise, but the second truck gets there too late and simply falls straight down onto the street below.

7. Luckily, though there is a lot of traffic, the truck falls onto an empty spot on the street, right in front of a bus, and is undamaged. After a moment, the truck driver continues driving.

8. I kick myself for not having my camera with me at the time and go inside to meet Ivana in the lobby.

9. Somehow I find myself outside and the scene repeats itself exactly the same way but this time I have my camera and capture the whole thing. Both times, I was not the only one looking up, there were many others looking too and some of them had cameras.

OK, folks, are you a dream interpreter? You can write your interpretation comments here!
