Mysteries of the Slumbering Mind

I had a really peculiar dream last night. I thought about writing it down in my dream log, but I didn't, and now I'm a little sorry because I forgot some of it.

I dreamed I was married to a politician and that we had been married for a few years. We had just come back from a political function and he was talking about it. All of a sudden, I threw off my stylish black trenchcoat and said "I'm done with this. I'm done with this campaign, and I'm done with this marriage". He was like "Why? We get along so well" and I said something to the effect of "We're nothing alike. I'm not even a Republican.....I'm a Democrat!" (IRL, I consider myself to be unaligned with any party).

All this is happening while I'm packing my bags to leave. I was saying how he didn't appreciate me or care anything about what I wanted or needed. I said "What if I want to have children?" and he said, "Well, we can have them in 10 years or so" and I pointed out that by that time, he would be 50 (apparantly, he was a lot older than I). So he said, "I try to show you how much I appreciate you. I just gave you that necklace, and you said you really liked it". I looked at my necklace and it was this yellowish crystal heart (which for some reason I liked in the dream). I said "Don't you see, it's not about the necklace" and then I felt really sad and kissed him, in a good-bye sort of way.

And as I'm walking out the door, I'm thinking "Well, at least I can marry Ethan".

WTF? Crowjoy, if you're reading this, wanna provide any comments? (Does she read my blog? I don't think so.)

Mostly, it seemed like I was a character in a movie. This dream was nothing like my real life, and didn't have any real life characters in it, except when I thought of Ethan at the end. I haven't watched any movies like that or any t.v. for a while, so where did this come from and what could it possibly mean?

Well, IRL you did marry a much older man.

And you spelled apparently wrong!
