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. (Typed by mother as 8-year-old dictated): There is a unicycle dream I had. Well it was weird. There was a guy and for some reason he stole a unicycle and started throwing miniature unicycles at me! And then my brother appeared there and he got on a bike which is actually my real bike and drove away. The guy that stole the unicycles opened up this really swirly portal. It was blue and yellow and had these really giant swirls on it and jumped into it. He escaped. That's when my dream ended. Where I was? On the side of a road in the country but there was a warehouse there. There were also three other kids there who went away with my brother Will -- but I can't remember who they were -- I'm pretty sure two of them were on unicycles but one of them was on another bike. Here's another weird thing: When he was escaping Will (brother) jumped off of my bike and then got onto this miniature unicycle and he drove off on that. Like half-way out of the warehouse he changed from my bike to this little unicycle that was about half the size of his foot -- and somehow he got away. During the dream I can't remember how I was feeling. I can't remember what the guy who stole the unicycle looked like -- I just remembered the details of what happened. I was eight years old when I had this dream -- like 8 and 11/12ths!
