Dreams are strange things. Last night I was playing in a pool tournament at a local pool hall. In the dream, this was the second year in a row that I had played in this same event. We were all getting ready to cue it up, and in the door walks the Coke delivery guy. To my great surprise, it turned out to be Chris M., my roomate freshman year at Miami. Keep in mind I haven't seen the guy since 1994 as he transfered after our freshman year. We ended up talking for awhile, during which time I learned his life was not going too well. He had two little girls by women that weren't his wife, and he had just found out he had some type of sexually transmitted disease. He didn't know what yet, but the results were coming soon.
Why did I dream about Chris when I have thought about him maybe 10 times in the last 12 years? And how would I have done in the pool tournament if I hadn't been interrupted by Chris?
Do you guys dream about people that obscure, and if so, why do you think it happens?
