    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #212: The Guadalupe Airport

    Im in a cafe talking to an art student in his early 20s as he walks out the door. Im complimenting him on some piece of digital art that I saw in his online portfolio when I realize that I cant remember his name. I ask and he says, Its Bradley, as we shake hands. I think that this is a student in my 3-year-old sons class, somehow all grown up.

    Bradley leaves and I just stand there, confused about how this much time has passed. After a brief mental struggle, I realize that these facts just dont fit together and
    I become lucid.

    I spend a few moments looking around at the DCs in the cafe but they all seem fairly generic. I dont have goals in mind and Im anxious that Ill waste the experience, so I head through the first door that I see, winding up in a bathroom. Somebody flushes from one of the stalls. I am not spending a lucid dream listening to people flush toilets, I think, and head back out through the bathroom, back through the cafe, and out into a mall.

    Im feeling less passive now and I try hard to remember what my goals were. Somehow I dredge up that a Task of the Month is to keep repeating whatever a DC says to you. I approach a balding, blonde-haired guy with glasses in his early 40s. Hes wearing a t-shirt that says something about the Windows registry and hes looking at me like he wants to tell me something.

    Talk to me! I say.

    He happily launches into an explanation of something about computers, but hes speaking too rapidly for me to follow. I eventually start catching him mid-sentence. If you have a memory block that and I babble back If you have a memory block that!

    He scowls at the interruption. You know what? I dont think youre actually into this! And with that, he turns and walks away, looking offended.

    I continue on, drifting through the crowd. I spot one guy thats unusually tall and for some reason get the nasty impulse to mess with him. I kick him in the right shin and he falls forward, stopping just short of hitting the ground. Then he rises back up, looking angry and annoyed. Sorry, that was stupid, I say, scurrying away from him. He floats after me for a moment but I make an effort to think about other things as I evade him, flying down an escalator to the first floor.

    I move through a relatively empty hallway, worrying for a moment about whether Ill be able to remember whats happened in the dream and take a moment to reflect on how cool this is.

    Now Im back in the main thoroughfare with the crowd. I spot two attractive women nearby, both Indian, one in her mid-twenties, the other in her mid-forties. I fly past them and they say something about going to Las Vegas. I want to impress them for some reason so I boast that Im having a lucid dream and could travel to Las Vegas instantly. They laugh nervously and sort of edge away.

    I say something like, Here, Ill show you! and start flying away, slightly out of control. Theres an open chunk in the ceiling and I pass through it, turning and flailing a bit. Somehow I find myself flying along an airport runway at night. I hear Happy Birthday Guadalupe! by The Killers playing over what sounds like a clock radio and I worry that a morning alarm is going off. I fly up to a tall column of carved stone in the middle of the runway and reach out to touch it
    as the dream ends.

      I think I may have laughed way too much at that, but the mental image was just great. Why did I think of Mindy?

      He scowls at the interruption. “You know what? I don’t think you’re actually into this!” And with that, he turns and walks away, looking offended.
      A bit touchy! I love how your DCs reacted like actual people and not mindless extras.

      for some reason get the nasty impulse to mess with him. I kick him in the right shin
      Now you're starting to act like me. lol. It's funny how we do random things in dreams even while lucid. I still don't get that part.


      :canislucidus:Anyway, cool dream! I'm glad you are back in the game and with a TOTM accomplished to boot.:canislucidus:

      Thanks, man! I was pleased and relieved, too. I'd taken a nap the afternoon before so I assumed that I'd never fall back asleep during a WBTB but everything went fine.

      I think I may have laughed way too much at that, but the mental image was just great. Why did I think of Mindy?
      Ha ha, yeah, it really was pretty funny. This weird desire to show off to DCs is even funnier when I totally fail like that. It's funny you should mention that, too, because Mindy was briefly in a movie we watched last night ("This is the End") Neither of them really looked like her but I think the reaction you're imagining is right on.

      Now you're starting to act like me. lol. It's funny how we do random things in dreams even while lucid. I still don't get that part.
      LOL. I actually thought of your dreams when I was writing that part down. Nowhere near as creative as some of your mischief.

      But yeah it was quite pointless. Impulse control is super, super low in dreams, even lucids. So the thought of kicking a dude in the shin or jumping up on a card table and doing pelvic thrusts can get the thumbs up from our brains.

      Ha. You know, I'd like to think having total self control in a lucid would the ultimate mental discipline but the subC is a funny thing.

      Congrats on the ld and totm! It looks like you came across a smart DC, a pity the task required the opposite of a meaningful conversation.

      I kick him in the right shin and he falls forward, stopping just short of hitting the ground
      Lol, CL, I take this was some sort of preventive action just in case the other guy turned to be an ass.

      Thanks! Ha, you're right, I may have hurt the poor smart DC's feelings. Here he is trying to give me subC-supplied advice about computer systems and I'm just parroting him for Task of the Month.

      I like your interpretation of my blatant assault... this casts me in the best possible light, something I always like! Given the way I behaved here, maybe every hostile DC is just doing a similar preventive action on me!

      “Sorry, that was stupid,” I say, scurrying away from him.
      I was already in stitches (what did you expect would happen when you randomly kicked a giant in the shin!?) and then you came out with this!!
      You just had a sudden change of heart, right? You weren't wimping out or anything...

      You should have just kissed him to calm him down like you did with the bag lady - you'd have got a second task out of it!

      Nice! I loved the varied reactions here. Particularly the women "edging away".

      @Dreamer - Of course! When I say "scurrying away", I mean it in the most manly way possible. The mental image you should have is that of Clint Eastwood or Chuck Norris scurrying away. That kind of scurrying.

      Ha ha, maybe that would have worked! My prospective also seems to fail me when I think I'm seconds away from a beating. Hence the scurrying.

      @fogelbise - Thanks, fogelbise!

      @NewArtemis - Ha ha, thanks, do I know how to wow em or what? Guess I can't help but occasionally have to spend a little lucid time trying to be Mr. Cool!
