Alex shares this strange dream:
My dream began at a pet store that resembled a big warehouse. I was in search of a pet octopus
. I was assisted by a young man who placed a maroon-colored octopus in my arms. I walked around with it in my arms for a while and decided to set it down for a while. It started running around, and I chased after it. Not long into the chase I became frightened and ran from it; here the octopus started chasing me. The young man who had given me the octopus caught it and again placed it in my arms. I began walking again and decided to buy the octopus some food, so I asked the octopus what it liked to eat. The octopus couldn't talk, but we could communicate. I stopped suddenly in front of a row or clear refrigirators and asked the octopus if it could shock me. The octopus responded by placing one of his tentacles in my mouth. I fell to the floor where I lay for a minute; when I arose, the octopus was again placed in my arms. We headed to the reptile section. I stopped in front of an aquarium where snakes had tried to escape through the bottom but had suddenly died. Half of their bodies had managed to taste freedom. I blinked and suddenly I was in a stranger's driveway. His garage was open so I walked inside. His pets were dying, among them a dog, already covered in maggots. I walked inside and was greated by a young male. I asked him if I could use his bathroom he said yes and showed me the way. The inside was covered in blue carpet and there were three steps that led down to the toilet. I closed my eyes for a second and when I opened them I found myself in a classroom. The classroom resembled the classrooms in the movie Matilda
. There were only girls inside the classroom, all no older than 13. They were all waiting in line holding AM/PM cups. I too was holding one and was told to urinate in it. There was a table on the right side of the classroom where all the cups were being placed. I did what I was told and I gave it to my instructor. She looked inside and said that it was the right color; I didn't understand. At the end of my dream I realized that the world was ending and the color of my urine was the only way to save the world. (I am not sure why this was the solution.) I also realized that the only reason why my urine was the right color was because the octopus had shocked me.
