Veronika's Dream Journal
Join Veronika in her quirky, elaborate, and cinematic dreams in a new recurring series.
I was going on a road trip with a man who was evil and I was part of his evil plan.
He didn’t want Rozalind coming along so I had to put this yellow putty all over the black car.
Even though I put the putty everywhere, Roz still wanted to come with us.
We went by the subway station.
To the right everybody was lying down with their feet near the wall and their head next to the platform edge.
It was some type of yoga.
There was one person who was elevating himself using his muscles.
He wasn’t levitating.
His feet were still on the wall and his head was still on the ground.
Everyone to the left of the subway entrance was sitting down like normal people, but there were a lot more people than usual.
When the train came, a train came for everybody else, but the yellow-putty-covered black car came for us.
The “evil” man was already inside it, and Roz and I got inside.
We went to a nursery school in California.
There were lots of children and trees.
The nursery school was $30,000 per student per year.
I also saw a teacher.
Roz and the evil guy were no longer with me.
It was a couple of friends from school. We had to hide so that nobody would see us.
Then, we went next door to the left of the nursery, where Mayumi, Taehyun, and Camilla lived.
They were staying in California.
At some point I felt something at my feet and I realized it was a small dog.
He was really excited.
He was smaller than Yoda and a tad more brown than white.
Something like coffee with a lot of milk in it.
He was bouncing all over the place like it was nobody’s business.
His owners were really far away; something like 200 feet to the right and a little bit behind where I was standing.
They waved at me like it was okay that I was petting their dog.
I took his paws.
Then I found a red marker and started drawing smiley faces on his toes.
The marker was one of those cheap felt tip markers that run out really easily.
Then I wiggled my toes and realized I drew the smiley faces on my own feet.
It didn’t occur to me dogs don’t have toes, so I found his toes and drew smiley faces on them.
By this time, someone was pressuring me that it was time to leave.
