Stage fright, sibling swapping, and raining cats: strange things our readers dream about

We asked our readers to tell us about the strangest dream they’ve had. Here are some of our favourite answers:

A bit of a Freaky Friday moment

I dreamed that I became my younger brother’s younger sister. In the dream, I broke my brother’s toy racing car, and I was scared he was going to be mad at me. Luckily, my mum took pity on me (for a change!) because I was the younger sibling.

Monkeying around

I recently dreamed that my classmates and I ended up on an island that had no people, but was filled with monkeys. We all wandered through a tunnel that led to a beautiful meadow, where we all danced together. At that moment, I woke up.

A sweet dream

The strangest dream I’ve ever had was also a really good one. In it, I opened a dessert shop, where I had a magic machine that made cakes, puddings, jellies, smoothies, and sweet soups. I made lots of money because people would queue up to buy my desserts. I was disappointed when I woke up!

Stage fright

My school is putting on a drama production and everyone is nervous about it. A few days ago, I dreamed it was our opening night, and I couldn’t walk onto the stage because my legs wouldn’t move. When I finally managed to climb up the stage steps, I fell over. The show ended, and I cried and cried. I woke up in a cold sweat. I guess I’m just nervous about messing up on stage!

A painful experience

My dream was pretty scary. I was standing on a wooden suspension bridge, and it was really dark. Suddenly, one of the ropes on the bridge transformed into a green snake and began chasing me. Then I jumped from the bridge and BANG! I woke up, head throbbing, and on the floor.

The bottom of the ocean

I had a dream that I fell into a lake. At the bottom of the lake, I found textbooks, assignments, and report cards. They had all sunk with me. Then, I woke up.

It’s raining cats and humans

You know that dream when you’re falling down an endless pit? Mine was like that but, on the way down, there were all these cats talking (meowing?) to each other. I remember one pointing at me with a paw and saying in English to another cat: “Look, there’s a human falling. Should I go smack the human?” I guess I had watched too many funny cat videos that day.

Siblings are the best

When I was younger, I would wish I had a little brother or sister to play with. It was something I’d never told my parents. One night, I dreamed that my mum had given birth. I remember being so happy. Then, when I woke up, my mum told me that she was pregnant. It was unbelievable! So now, I have a cute little brother, Daniel, who plays with me all day long.

Gaming night

I once dreamed that I was playing video games for more than an entire day, from midnight until 3am the next morning. I was so exhausted that I couldn’t get up to go to school. I hope this doesn’t happen in real life!

No Monsters, Inc

The strangest dream I ever had was a nightmare. In it, I was lying in bed when I heard banging on the front door. It was like no one could hear it except me. The stranger then kicked the door down and entered my room. It was a green monster with eight arms, which jumped on my bed and opened its mouth wide. At that moment, I woke up – phew!
