my dream under water

it is wednesday and i'm learning to swimbecause at the moment i cant. we all have to jump in but i dont want to because im scared, suddenly one of my friends push me in. i try to swim but i cant and im sinking below to the bottom. i open my eyes and im imagining i'm in the ocean. i see sharks, dolphins and fish swim by me and everything was peaceful. i completely ignored the fact that i was actually in my school swimming pool. i must try and swim back up as i can feel the air slipping out of me. i float back up. i am safe

Dreams are funny things aren't they? It looks like you can use them to get lots of inspiration for your writing.

I had one the other night, in which I was at a gig for a band I had never heard of, who refused to play as their drummer hadn't showed up. Suddenly, I heard myself piping up that I could play the drums, and didn't mind performing with the band.

So I got on stage and sat at the drumkit, before realising that I didn't know any of the bands songs! As the rest of the band began playing, I also realised that I didn't know how to play the drums at all...

When I attempted to play the drums, I was absolutely terrible. So bad that the rest of the band stopped playing, and the audience stared at me in disbelief. It got even worse when the vocalist said, "Dude... I thought you said you could play the drums? Why would you lie?"

I don't know why I lied about being able to play the drums. I'm sure it will haunt me to the grave.

Wow, this reminds me of my underwater dreams! Usually happens when i have a cold (so cant breathe quite so well), or i roll over and my face is right into the pillow!

Fortunately for me, they are not scary as i can breathe underwater (in a way similar to having, say, a cold lol)

cool stuff, thanks for sharing :)
