January 26, 2012 MY CRAZY DREAM!! OMG I had the CRAZIEST dream last night!! It started in the school cafeteria. I was sitting at my usual table with Chloe and Zoey, but no one was sitting at any of the other tables. And Chloe and Zoey were wearing cheerleading uniforms, which is totally random since that’s SO not their thing. Zoey was like a vampire cheerleader, with blood dripping down the corner of her mouth…except she wasn’t acting like a vampire or anything. She was just kind of sitting there, eating a pickle with attitude, looking all like, “Yeah that’s right. I drink blood sometimes, but right now I’m eating my pickle, yo. So STEP!” And Chloe looked like a doll version of a cheerleader, with pony tails, dimples drawn on her cheeks, and a string coming out of her back. She was drinking some kind of soda out of a baby bottle. I asked them both, “What’s going on???” But Zoey ignored me because apparently, eating a massive pickle is WAY more important than answering your BFF. She was TOTALLY rude in my dream!! Chloe tried to talk, but no sound was coming out. So I pulled her string, and she went, “Be careful Nikki. You’re next!!” And then she giggled this super creepy little doll giggle. I ran out of the cafeteria because I was TOTALLY freaked out. But it was even scarier in the hallway. I kept hearing the sound of werewolves howling. And there was smoke everywhere, so I couldn’t see where I was going. And there were vines all over the lockers. It was kind of like being alone in a super dark, misty jungle. It was actually kind of cool looking, and I remember thinking I couldn’t WAIT to draw it…later, when I wasn’t FEARING FOR MY LIFE!! I saw a big sign on a door that read “SAFETY.” When I ran inside, I saw it was the janitor’s closet, except there were circus mirrors all over the walls. That’s when I saw it: I wasn’t me. I was MacKenzie. The horror!!! I was ME in MACKENZIE’S BODY. And I had lip gloss all over my face, as if I put it on in a dark moving car and just thought “I don’t care if I get cherry Lip Smackers everywhere. I NEED to put it on RIGHT NOW!!!” I opened my mouth to scream, because being MacKenzie is pretty much as terrifying as waking up and realizing your head fell off. But a scream didn’t come out of my mouth. Instead, dust came out…along with ALL of my front teeth! Then I heard Brandon calling my name. At first I got kind of giddy and ran toward the door, because HELLO, it was Brandon! Then I remembered I looked like a deranged, toothless MacKenzie. So I sat in the corner and put my arms around my knees. All the different freaky reflections of me in the circus mirrors started pointing and laughing at me. It was SO not cool! Suddenly, I heard Brandon right outside the door. He knocked and said, “Nikki, are you OK? I saw Chloe and Zoey and they said you ran out. I was worried about you.” I thought to myself, even in my dreams he’s super sweet!! Then I went, “You saw them? And they looked normal? They didn’t look like they were secretly plotting against me or anything?” He said, “Come on now, Nikki. Aren’t you being a little paranoid?” Then he laughed in a patronizing way, kind of like you’d chuckle if you were patting a 5-year old the head, right after buying a cup of lemonade for a nickel. But it was Brandon, so I pretended I didn’t notice that. “Come on now, open the door,” he said. “I won’t bite!” THE LIAR!! I opened the door, and sure enough it WASN’T Brandon! It was a WEREWOLF!! He lunged at me like he was going to bite off my toothless MacKenzie head. But right before it did, I woke up covered in sweat. That was a TOTALLY crazy dream, right? What do you think it meant??
