“I don’t know you but I dream of you every night…”
– Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates
I was watching this movie while dosing off to sleep when this line suddenly hit me – this happens to me too!
For the past 10 years of my life, I have been dreaming of a particular person occasionally. However, the weird thing is I can never remember his exact face when I wake up. Somehow, I do know it’s him when I do dream of him. How bizarre is that?!?
These dreams are very real. I can even touch, feel and sense things. It’s almost like a reality. Except sometimes, the ‘story line’ can be quite ‘kua cheong’ (exaggerated); I can do flying kicks and other stunts I’ve never even come across in reality. It thus makes me wonder – do I actually know him? You know, like Drew Barrymore in this movie actually knows the man she dreams of every night but just can’t remember who he is because she suffers from the Goldfield syndromme – a permanent short-term memory loss. Although I have been awarded ‘The Blur Queen’ title, I certainly do not suffer from any brain damage, rest assured.
Because of these dreams too, I am beginning to realise why my relationships never work out. It is simply because he is just not the guy of my dreams.
And after all these years I thought I have commitment problems, sigh!!
*no, just joking!
