Remembering Dreams

It is prohibited for this post is to appear anywhere else.

I used to keep a light-up pen on my bedside table, so that if I woke up from a dream that gave me an idea for a story or a song — or just a cool idea about life — I could immediately write it down.

I’ve had a lot of those types of dreams.

But I think I only had the presence of mind to write something down once.

Last night, I had a dream in which I was hanging out with former late-night TV talk-show host, Johnny Carson.

He said something funny, and — wanting to show him that I could be funny, too — I grabbed a couple of nearby ball-point pens and spontaneously did a very simple-but-hilarious comedy bit with them that had him rolling on the floor with laughter.

When the dream was over, I woke up, remembered it, and made up a couple of memory joggers, to help me remember the dream when I woke up this morning.

I’ve done that a lot in the past. Given myself middle-of-the-night memory joggers, to help me remember my best dreams.

But, now that I think of it, I don’t think they’ve ever worked.

Until a few minutes ago.

When I saw an article called Six Techniques for Remembering Dreams, I suddenly remembered all of last night’s Johnny Carson dream.

Now I’m going to have to think of an excuse to show some friends my comedy bit with the ball-point pens.
