Dream 1/13/2012: Red Rover
Scene: Inside the Art Institute
So i show up to school for drawing class and i head up to my normal classroom, but my teacher is not there and neither are anyone in the class. i think thats really weird because class is supposed to be starting like, now. I head to some kind of administrative office and ask what is going on and they tell me that they don’t know what is going on, that they haven’t seen my teacher either and to basically just assume class is cancelled. so I’m like, alright, no big deal, i guess ill just have to find something to do for the next 4/5 hours till my next class. being in portland, that shouldn’t be too hard. I think about texting Jonny and seeing what he is doing, but I’m not sure if i should so i don’t.
When i walk outside, i notice that Ai doesn’t look like it usually does, which is like a normal building on the street in Portland. It now looks like a normal college on a large sprawling campus with large areas of grass out front and the building isn’t just a block wide and very tall, but very wide and like, 5 stories tall. Basically its like all the Ai’s came together to create one big school. anyways, in my dream this doesn’t bother me much and nor does it bother anyone else, were all used to it, like its always been this way.
So i go outside and see some of my friends playing some kind of game where you run in between each other without being touched… i don’t quite understand it. i set my stuff on the truck bed where everyone else’s stuff is (cause apparently they allow trucks on campus) and i ask them whats up and if i can join them. they try to explain the game to me but i still don’t really understand, so i walk to the other side of the group to watch. i notice that Jonny actually is here already and playing games with all my friends. I’m kind of like,thats weird.. but still cool that he is here already. So as I’m talking to one of my friends who is playing by where I’m watching i say “i think we should play red rover, that is so much more fun” and then everyone somehow hears me and starts moving into the two-line formation of red rover. I’m like, awesome! we get to play the game i want to play! so everyone gets in their lines and I’m coating the number of people in the lines to make sure we are even and I’m thinking that one person needs to moves from the left of me to the right, and then i realize I’m that one person and i didn’t count myself, duh. so i get into the right line and we start playing.
Erika runs over to us and me and someone else capture her. the game goers on for a bit and then Jonny comes over to my end of the line (cause apparently he is some kind of team leader now.) and tells me to move over a few spots to the left in our line. he then goes back to the end of the line and starts saying that there is “someone in particular who has been doing a fantastic job at playing this game” as he walks down the line. he then stops and me and starts saying that i have been doing such a great job and he wants to congratulate me. then everyone jumps over to me to give me a giant hug and like, tackles me to the ground. they bring out a cake for me, apparently they had been planning on doing this because its some kind of party for me. Jonny brings over a cake and sets it in front of me while I’m pinned to the ground. then some asian guy (Wes maybe?) brings out this invention he made that duplicates things and starts to duplicate a section of my cake so that is starts to get bigger and bigger and creates a cool design that ends up making it look like a blue layered cake with an easter egg on top that has multiple sparkling layers of color. Russ then shows up out of nowhere and takes a picture of me with the cake.
