In response to Fandango’s provocative question # 86:
I have dreamt of my one-armed sister. This was last week, super recent and quite strange. I suppose this could be one of the strangest coherent dreams I have. Most of my dreams do not make sense at all.
In the dream, we were on a van and Joy, my younger sister was wearing her civil wedding dress. Her civil wedding was in 2017 so I really didn’t understand why the memory. She was doing her makeup on the moving vehicle and is having the hardest time putting it on while looking at the mirror on her lap. She was complaining loudly because she kept messing up as she was trying to put the eyeliner on and in the dream, I wanted to yell like, “why don’t you hold the mirror.”
Then I looked at her and saw that she only had one arm. I was super shocked!
Our mom and our youngest sister, Faith seemed not a bit surprised though. They were acting as if Joy’s had one arm all her life. I was thinking, “why are they not helping her?” I mean, one or two arms, it’s strange that no one’s helping her since it’s her wedding day, although civil, it’s still her day (we couldn’t have known in the dream that she will have a big wedding a year after). It’s weird that Faith who was seated beside Joy wasn’t assisting, because we do help each other, weddings or not.
My heart was melting and I thought I was going to cry. I don’t know if I was crying in the dream or in reality. I felt so bad because she only had an arm.
I believe what triggered the dream is the incessant ranting of my husband about my not watching Twin Peaks with him. I didn’t want to watch because I have seen that before (when I was young) and I didn’t like it.
One of the things I remembered in Twin Peaks is the one-armed man and that everything seemed wooden. The soundtrack didn’t appeal to me either. But my husband won’t start it until I agreed to watch it with him. His viewing category these days is: TV Shows with Cult Following and of course, he had to insist on this. I was thinking hard whether I’d agree or not because if I will agree to this, I could get bored and do other things (like play the Switch while watching) and he’d be pretty upset because my husband watches movies/tv as if he’s a member of The Academy. So watching with him meant committing my full time and attention on such a very wooden theme.
As to why my sister, I mean of all people, why dream of her?! Probably because I’ve always admired her being able to perfectly apply makeup while on a moving vehicle? It could be tricky as to why her, but that reason should suffice for now.
