Confession - Dreams of a Tiger Mom

Why is it that we find our own dreams to be the most fascinating things ever but find other people's dreams completely boring?

Well, since it's always all about me, I'm going to tell you about my dream anyways.

It's a recurring dream involving tigers. Great big beautiful, majestic beasts...mauling me or the people I love.

I blame it on the news and that whole Ohio menagerie kerfuffle. This is why I don't watch the news. The one time I turn it on and I am dreaming about stuffing tigers into cars like clowns into Volkswagen beetles. 

Hmm...maybe it's because I watched The Hangover too many times. It's the only movie Larry and I can agree upon. I would rather watch Grease for the millionth time and he will gladly watch The American President or Mrs. Doubtfire seven days of the week. 

Or maybe it's because I went to the circus this summer. That whole tiger bit made me very uncomfortable. I was waiting for the Seigfried and Roy moment to happen at any moment. I swear I was 30 seconds away from curling up in the fetal position on the floor next to my $15 lemonade and $20 popcorn that was spilled 30 seconds after purchase.

MAYBE it's because I had a vicious little beagle named Fred once upon a time. Now I'm just scared of all animals. Come of think of it, I'm pretty weary of those cute bunny rabbits hopping around my street all the time. Bunnies are evil, right?

Is anyone out there good at interpreting dreams? I googled that shit and this is what I found....

To see a tiger in your dream represents power and your ability to exert it in various situations. The dream may also indicate that you need to take more of a leadership role. Alternatively, the tiger represents female sexuality, aggression, and seduction.  

I especially like that last part. It's like they read my soul. 

There was also this...

To dream that you are attacked by a tiger refers to the emotions that you have repressed because you were afraid of confronting them.

Well, duh.

Personally, I think the tiger represents a certain beast that pounces on me around 4 am every morning. Where's the tranquilizer gun for that predator?

I've had tiger dreams too. And I think rabbits are totally crazy and evil. Where've you been? You've been 'away' for almost a MONTH!
