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. this is a bad dream from when I was 5 or 6 and this is how it started. I went to sleep after a few minutes I started dreaming that I was really bored because my best friend had one of their mom's friends there and the mom and dad were having a cookout with their friend and I was looking out the window to see if they had left yet and all of a sudden the friend ripped off its skin and it was all green and it had big fangs and its mouth looked like a cat's. And the parents started screaming and running away from the house down the street. After they ran away the green creature turned its head towards our house and saw us all in the window and it started running toward us and all of us ran toward my mom and dad's room and then we realized we were trapped. It broke through the door ran up the steps and searched the whole house until it found us. Then after it found us it started licking its lips and all of a sudden I had an idea. I decided to teach it good and bad. We had just moved in so there was alot of stuff on the floor and all of a sudden I spotted some penguins not real ones but glass statues and after I stepped forward I said "You know what someone needs to teach you some manners. Penguins are good but breaking into somebody's house is bad." After I said that it put its mask back on. And I woke up. What was going through my head was that my dream was scary. I don't think I want that to happen.
