    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #205: Beer Goggles

    My friend Leroy and I are hosting a meeting at a hotel. Were there to meet with another company for merger talks and weve got a table of breakfast food laid out for the attendees. A bunch of other random people are having breakfast here, though, and have stolen a bunch of our yogurts. Leroy runs past these tables and grabs the yogurts back before sprinting off toward the meeting in the nearby bar. I think this is pretty awesome and get a good laugh out of it.

    When we get to the bar and sit down with the other company, I realize that its lots of people I know from different areas of my life. This strikes me as strange, and when I consider my situation,
    I realize that Im dreaming.

    I spend a little bit of time conversing with the people at the table, just out of curiosity as to how theyll react. I talk to SK for a moment and then to a younger version of SC who is now sporting a mustache. They all seem to be aware that this is a dream and dont try to fool or convince me otherwise.

    I leave the table and think that I should use the opportunity to try a drink. As I pass a waiter I say, Sir, give me a beer, and he immediately complies. I take a swig, but its sort of gross, like flat mineral water. For some reason I decide to dump the rest over my face. It feels cold, realistic, and super invigorating! There also seems to be an unlimited supply, because it just keeps pouring and pouring. The effect is awesome because itll occasionally even cross my vision and make everything look all watery-looking.

    I head for the exit, a huge, ornate wooden door with an iron ring for a handle. I pull it open (with some effort) and then do this again at a second huge wooden door. Now Im out on the street in the daytime, pouring beer over my face and looking at the passerby. Its a beautiful day out and I just enjoy the sunshine and presence of the DCs.

    An attractive Asian woman in a two-piece swimsuit approaches from down the street, but as she walks by closer to where Im standing she morphs into a guy walking around in shorts and a t-shirt. Hey, you were a woman just a second ago!

    Thats right, he says. Do you want me to change back?

    Yeah, change back! At this, he leans over, grabs the back of his t-shirt and seems to kind of struggle with pulling it over his head. And as he emerges, he is back to female form again. Im super amused by this and I cheer at the trick. She seems really flattered and pleased by my reaction and laughs before walking away.

    This whole time Ive continued pouring beer over my face and I look up at the bottle to see that its really small now, about the size of a thimble. It still pours just fine, though, but I dont have long before
    the dream ends.

      Nice one! What that DC did is the type of thing another lucid dreamer would do. Interesting and entertaining!

      It cracks me up that you poured your beer on your face. I have so many of those moments where I wonder what I was thinking doing what I did in a dream. I guess sometimes you're not all there.

      Ha ha, I hadn't thought of that, but you're right! Was that an accidental dream share with OpheliaBlue?

      Yeah I can't figure out why that seemed like a good idea but I'm really glad I did it! I'm often very likely to try the first thing that comes to mind in lucids, which is probably for the most part a good thing since it leads to trying a lot of interesting new things. (Like pouring beer on your face!)

      It seems like anything that engages the senses well is a good thing to try in an LD. As we know, even making out with the floor can set you up for Task of the Year!

      Awesome dream! Very creative to pour beer all over your face and get those interesting effects!

      Cool gender bender control part! Also, lol about the yogurt!

      Yeah, Leroy got a real kick out of the yogurt appearance when I told him about it. I left out the part about me becoming lucid, pouring beer all over my own face, and then encountering a gender-swapping dream character. Sometimes you've gotta leave out those uninteresting details, ha ha...

      I seriously may try the beer thing again. I tell you, every time I create some strong sensory experience, even if it's something offbeat like this, it seems like it's paid off!
