Want to Experience the Best Night of Your Life? Well Now You CAN!!

So I realized today that I used to do some pretty fun, entertaining blogs about random topics I come across in life.  I also realized I don't do that anymore!  The reason is probably along the lines of me always chronicling my day or some adventure I've had.  And let's face it, it's just not as fun.  Even I don't like reading about my own life that much.  So in honor of myself and in the spirit of the upcoming A to Z challenge, I will be attempting to do more blogs about topics rather than experiences.  That's not to say that I won't do any experiential blogs, because I certainly will, only that they won't rule the Hootenenny any more.

So, to embark in this new endeavor I will begin with the topic of lucid dreaming!  So let's start with a definition.  A lucid dream is a dream in which you know you are dreaming.  Ever had one of those?  In all of my outrageous dreams (you can view some here) I never really came across this situation.  That is until about a month ago.

I happened to be dreaming about drum corps, as you do, and as with most of my other drum corps dreams, I was on the field performing a show, with no idea what the work or the drill was.  And so I figured I would follow the form, there wasn't much work to spin anyways.  The only thing was, the rest of my drill form didn't remember the end of the show!  So we marched straight off the end of the field while the rest of the corps was performing.  And then the visual caption head came running over to us demanding to know what was wrong, and why weren't we on the field finishing the show?!  The only thing I could say was I don't know.  It was then that I knew I was dreaming.  And I almost told him in the dream, except I didn't want to sound crazy.  But really, what other reason would I forget all of the work for a show.  It only ever happens in my dreams!
