    How Do You Dance with a Lady

    I was at a high class resort of sorts, and I was not me, though I don't have a a good sense of who I was.

    The most memorable part of the resort stay was the tutorial they did mostly directed toward men of "How Do You Dance With a Lady" when there is a wine bottle involved. It appeared to be a formal evening dress code event, with classical dancing. So the men were given a multiple choice quizz:

    Do you "Dance with a Lady" and a wine bottle
    (a) by renaming your wine bottle "lady" and dancing with her
    (b) try to pour or drink the wine while simultaneously trying to dance
    (c) you enjoy your wine while the lady dances
    OR and this was the "correct" answer
    (d) you pour the wine for your lady and yourself, you both enjoy it, then put down your glaces, and then you dance together

    A later scene at same resort (this one woke me up):

    I was sitting on the veranda or a large balcony of the resort, and I was not paying much attention. All of a sudden I hear this terrible looming noise, and a loud voice saying something from a loudspeaker that sounded like "Ally Action" though I could not figure out what they were actually saying. At first someone else blocked my view, but then they moved, and I realized that a helicopter was the source of this noise and loudspeaker too. Then I realize that the helicopter was going to land right where I was sitting/lounging. I moved quickly to avoid being squished. In fact this was so vivid and realistic that upon waking up, I immediately sat up in bed and got out of the way.

    This was not a lucid dream but it was vivid and detailed and long with more than one scene.

    And upon waking I remembered a previous dream also which I shall record separately.

      Since I am into dream interpretation, I am going to try to interpret this dream for myself, since it is in many ways a fascinating dream for me.

      The one issue that is now predominant in my life is my decision to leave one online forum because I was uncomfortable with the level of censorship and come here to dream views instead. So I wonder whether this dream is not somehow about that as well: The lesson about How to Dance With a Lady is all about what is the proper thing to do. When I told this dream to my mom, she pointed out to me that the "correct" answer in my dream is a very conservative answer, and it is true. I am an interesting blend of liberal and conservative in different ways.

      For the online forum how this applies is: is it more "proper" and "polite" to censor talk such as talk of drugs and sex and dirty language? Or is it impolite to do that kind of restrictive censorship? You know my answer since I am now on dream views. But before I decided to jump ship I was beginning to Have doubts as to whether I am a nice person - why could I not fit in on this nice and polite forum? Why did I feel like I was wearing a corset? I think this dream being about a lesson in manners is thus significant: my mind is struggling with what "good manners" means, and while in this dream the conservative answer is considered correct, but I think it is significant that I acknowledge that there are other possible answers to this question.

      As for the helicopter. Strangely enough I am a bit scared of helicopters in real life. However, this dream was not so much a nightmare - I found the helicopter attack exhilarating and exciting. A new adventure begins?
