a trio of dreams

i have been sleeping on and off for the past 12 hours. that's from 5 am this morning to 5:30 pm tonight. of course, i had several strange dreams along the way, so i'll tell you about them.

i dreamed last night (and during the day today) that jenna's mother (jenna is my cousin) was shot twice, and died. i didn't see the incident happen, but she just told me about it.

i dreamed also that dad found an old collapsable bus in the garage. it had no seats, only poles to sit on. it could transport 12 people at a time, but was so rickety that anyone in it had to stand in a symmetrical way so that their weight was equally distributed and the bus wouldn't tip over while in motion. the bus could be tiny for a couple of passengers, or super long if you wanted to transport lots of people. i was excited, because i figured i could take it to college, because he never used it (although i think he had once) and it could hold a whole bunch of friends. i would have a cool vehicle, nevermind how flimsy it might be. he wouldn't let me take the bus to college, said it wasn't dependable. then we found some other car in the garage that he hadn't used in ages and he wouldn't let me take it, either, on account of its same unreliability.

lastly i dreamed that mom and i were sitting at the kitchen table discussing our granny apple vine. yes, i know apples grow on trees, but we had a vine. the apples would grow from seed to ready-to-eat in just one week, so we were impressed with our little vine. then we started talking about going to new york, and we planned to go for a weekend solely to see a movie. she insisted i get my hair and makeup done for the occasion, but i never understood why, and i kept forgetting throughout the dream that i had to make those appointments. mom was always surprised that i would forget to make such 'fun' appointments--that's so typical of my mom.
