    Lucid #266: Whoopy Cough

    I’m gazing out the window of my kitchen at my back yard. The fence is oddly low, and I see a young girl walking by with her dog. I’m astonished to see that the girl has the head of a blue hippo stuffed animal. When I mentally reality check in response to this, I realize that I must be dreaming.

    I turn away from the window and the scene gets a little unstable, breaking into three rectangular pieces that seem to move independently and slide past one another. I relax and take it slow, rubbing my hands together, walking calmly around, talking out loud, and finally licking each hand.

    The scene feels reasonably stable, but my vision is almost entirely faded out now. I imagine that I have a big pair of glasses covering my vision and take them off. (The glasses look just like a set of Oculus Rift virtual reality goggles.) Immediately, my vision is crystal clear and I have a completely realistic view of my kitchen!

    Wife is standing in the den near my desk. “Hey!” I say to her. “I was having trouble for a second, but we’re in my lucid dream right now!”

    She looks around a bit, saying something like, “Is that what this is?”

    “I was thinking I’d either take you for a fly or…” I say.

    “Yoooouuuuuuuuu…” Wife interrupts, pointing her finger at me dramatically, “want sex!”

    “Or, right, that was my other idea.”

    Spoiler for Somewhat strange, rather racy part:


    ...the dream ends.

      Congrats on the hippo head induced ld!

      The three piece scene effect was quite cool! And lol - I never expected things would turn out this way in the end.

      Ha ha, thanks blobularwindmill and Nyx! Yes, this was most unexpected but hilarious...

      Yeah, the three-piece scene effect really was cool! It was a bit chaotic when it was an unexpected effect but it really got me thinking about the possibility of having multiple "viewports" or angles in the dream...

      Oh hey, Nyx, you might be interested this bit! I thought of a detail I left out in my haste. When I took the "goggles" off to clear my vision, they looked just like the mask from the Oculus Rift developer's kit! (Edit: just added this bit in)

      Oh thank you CL's subC! That was the best. I mean sure a fart sound would be quite enough, but no, she has to cough. Hahahahahahahah! Oh and that other part was cool too.

      *cough* *cough*

      Also I really love the idea of removing the really crappy Oculus Rift goggles. Maybe that's been my problem. ha! BTW do you have one? I'll be really jealous.

      @bemistaken - LOL @ Task of the month! You are hilarious. Now that you know it's possible, nothing can stop you!

      @Xanous - Ha ha, I know, man! I sometimes catch myself feeling deluded enough to believe I'm ready for anything. My subconscious loves to set me straight on that.

      Edit: Yeah, Xanous, we do have an Oculus at the office! This is the model we've got: https://www.oculus.com/dk2/

      I'm ashamed of how little use we've put into it thanks to our long hours recently, but we're all really excited to play more with it!

      Wow that's so cool man. I can't wait until it's widely marketed and mainstream. I recently heard some stuff form Aaron Frank at Singularity University and the technology that's coming down the line is so scary but really cool.

      Yeah, I'm really excited about the future of VR as well! Even mobile current-gen mobile hardware is capable of producing pretty decent (not mind-blowing, but decent) VR experiences, so I could really see it becoming very widespread!

      That's cool, I hadn't heard of Singularity University! I did a quick perusal of their course material and it looks like just the fascinating kind of stuff that I could get completely lost in.

      At least it wasn't a fanny fart!
      I've actually heard my grandpop use the term "trouser cough" to describe a fart before!

      I'll have to chat with you more about the scene splitting into different pieces... that sounds similar to a dare I've been assigned by Hukif, but I've been having trouble imagining what it might look like to incubate it.

      Nice work relaxing and keeping the dream stable, and great thinking with the goggles!

      Indeed you're right! I guess this was the previously undiscovered fanny fart cousin "the fanny cough".

      And "trouser cough"!!

      Too funny! This is my first time noticing this now-vintage comment... almost missed this one! Glad I didn't!

      Oh for sure, I can tell you anything about it that you might like to know! I couldn't say how to cause it intentionally, but I can definitely report on what it looks and feels like!
