Text of most memorable dream reports from participants in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011 and other sources. Exact question used in the Memorable Dreams Survey 2011: We are interested in hearing the story of an especially memorable dream you had, from any time in your life. Please try to recall as many details as possible, including the setting, characters, colors, actions, and any feelings or thoughts you had in the dream. i had a dream 2 nights ago. My friend Lauren and I were in high school at the beginning of the dream. Lauren and this hot guy named Chandler started going out. Lauren was so happy. I still hung out with her. Chandler and his friends didn't like me too much. They said i couldn't b around them anymore because i am not a cutter. (Chandler Lauren and his friends self-harm or used to.) Lauren tried to convince me to tell them my secret. "Tell them you used to cut too. then we can still hang out." i told her "No I keep all your secrets please just keep this one for me." she said "ok" and then my dream sorta went like a movie where i look back at them and then slowly walk away. (Years later after Collage) I am at home with a baby on my hip two crazy twins running around a girl reading Harry Potter and the eldest boy trying to steal a cookie out of the cookie jar. My husband Bryan (who i like) is on the phone making a business call. someone knocks on the door. Bryan yells "Who is it Honey? Katie (my best friend EVER) wasn't supposed to come over till 2 o'clock!" I open the door. Standing at my door is Lauren and Chandler with kids in their car. I don't remember exact words but Chandler Lauren and i were talking about how Lauren is now sick and she will die soon and how she wanted to see me before she died. I tell her "come on in and bring the kids dinner is about to start." we chat and get along nicely. I mention Chandler's friends and she says that most of them are in jail. Katie joins us for dinner with her kids. The adults watch the kids get along nicely and how they are already flirting with each other. Bryan jokes about how no one messes with his baby girl. (years later) Lauren just died and we (Katie's family my family and Lauren's family) are attending her funeral in black. some of the kids are holding hands and comforting each other. everyone is sad. then the dream faded out. THE END!
