I've had a few bizarre dental dreams in the weeks since my last update; however, last night's was so very peculiar that I felt I compelled to update now, before I undoubtedly forget the events that transpired in dreamland.
Last night's dental dream involved a lawsuit. That isn't where it started, of course. It started with an unlikely scenario in which my sister and I were inexplicably being pursued by a t-rex. It was terrifying, but it was also sort of badass since we were miraculously managing to outrun it.
Unfortunately, even in dreams, dinosaurs have a lot more stamina than humans. The t-rex managed to catch up with us, at which point he did what any self-respecting t-rex would do: start ripping into our flesh with his powerful jaws and teeth. I guess it's probably a stretch to classify this as one of my dental dreams, because it didn't involve my own teeth. However, the vivid and terrifying image of the dream t-rex's enormous, gaping maw looming over me--gleaming with hundreds of jagged teeth--is indelibly burned into my mind.
My sister and I survived the ordeal, but came out of it rather brutally maimed. At this point, the dream suddenly fast-forwarded to what, in real life, probably would have been several months in the future. We were in a courtroom; apparently, my sister had decided to seek justice through the legal system. I was confused at first, but then it hit me: we were suing the dinosaur. I became very alarmed by this, loudly insisting, "You can't file a lawsuit against a t-rex! Seriously!" No one else appeared to agree with me; the entire courtroom responded to my outburst a mixture of incredulous and baffled stares.
I woke up soon after that, but not before catching a glimpse of a t-rex in a suit. I guess even dinosaurs clean up nicely for court.
So that was Dental Dreams: Lawsuit Edition.
