    Things to Run Away From Really Fast

    #113. False Awakenings

    I contemplate world domination/destruction. Fortunately for the planet, I still can't teleport.


    Note: As of July 21, this is no longer true. Watch out, world.



    I look down at my right hand and count my fingers. "One. Two. Three. Fourfivesixseveneightnine." I get distracted and start counting off random numbers, but I'm lucid by this point, and looking around.

    Dream goals... right. I wanted to go to Walmart and open a portal to hell. No reason, I just thought it would be fun.

    I try to shift to a new location, attempting to bring my companion along.

    I wake up in bed. Except for the part where I'm still dreaming. I know it automatically, but I still do a quick count of my fingers. The ring and pinky fingers are alternately multiplying and fading out of existance, so that's normal.

    I "wake up" again, but I still know I'm dreaming. I go outside and decide to along the sidewalk at a sprint, just to see how fast I can go. I run up a hill that doesn't exist in real life, surprised that I can actually feel a physical drag slowing me down.

    I consider the possibility of using running as a reality check.

    Fragments: I'm driving a Bentley. I'm either Crowley or Aziraphale from Good Omens. Something about one-ways and suburbs. Or maybe that's Suburban (the truck). I can't read my writing.

    I find my keys. They're hanging from the doorknob of my bedroom.

    False Awakenings. Scare Factor: 1.


    I wake up. My keys are still missing. Damn you for giving me hope, Id.

      You definitely need to pull this one off.

      I look forward to the inevitable terror you'll wreak across the planet.

      Well, as long as you're only looking to do dominate/destroy your own world. An altercation will be hard to avoid if you cast your sights any farther. =P

      Wow... bring the denizens of Hell into Walmart... I bet that would improve their customer service record!

      One request... Please start with politicians and lawyers.

      As long as you are limiting the destruction to humans, my give-a-damn is busted. Hurt the innocent animals and there will be trouble.

      Did I miss something? This entry is for 7-19-10 and no updates since.

      Don't leave us in suspense. I still need a way to teleport so let's hear it.

      All in fun guys, I promise. I'll try not to impugn on anyone else's dream-territory.

      I made some progress in #111. Hazel, 07/21/10. Sporadic update schedules, what can you do.

      Oh yeah. I read that one. Guess I overlooked the date.

      That is some progress but you really think the world is in danger because you got a little help from Hazel? Do it again.

      And if I am reading and understanding that correctly, sounds like you did some sort of in-dream WILD? What with the laying back, paralysis and fading. Sounds a little risky for me. I am going to continue experimenting with TV screen teleporting.

      Crazy - the same thing happens to me when I have to run uphill (or in an upwards incline, in general). I get that physical drag and I'm all like, "No, why am I losing momentum! It's a dream!"
