It’s Raining Spiders and We’re Eating Butterflies


Weird, messed-up dreams are nothing new to me. In fact, they’re kind of my specialty. Still, I’m going to assume sheer exhaustion resulted in this particularly bizarre dream, and not some subconscious desire to eat bugs because, well, no thank you.


I rarely nap, but today I did and man, did my brain go bonkers. First of all, it started off like those dreams you see in horror movies where the character wakes up thinking it was all just a dream and then the killer pops up and gets them. Except in my case, I “woke up” in bed from what Dream Me thought was a nap (so a dream within a dream if you will) to see what looked like long white hairs gently falling down from the ceiling above me. Turned out those long white silky hairs were connected to baby spiders falling down from the ceiling by the hundreds. Needless to say, I lost my shit.



Untangling myself from the blankets, I sprung out of bed and ran out the door into some creepy dungeon that was covered in spider webs, egg sacs, etc. I mean, it was everywhere, to the point that I had to crawl and rip my way through it with spiders crawling all over the place. It was disgusting. 2fbf0f41eb93b1808c079b2d9da016a96752211ceed04cd00b1a3f3fb55e864e

While trying to make my way through the dungeon I saw my cat was there, too, and that she was batting at something in one of the matted spider webs: a gorgeous golden yellow butterfly. I can’t remember what Dream Me thought my mom would want with this particular butterfly, I just know that Dream Me knew she just had to have it. So I made my way through the spider-nastiness of the dungeon only to discover that in that time my cat had turned into my parents’ blind pug (not that Dream Me thought this was weird in any way, shape or form mind you.) Also, said pug was standing on a washing machine and promptly started eating the butterfly I felt my mom so desperately needed.


After wrestling the butterfly free from the mouth of a hungry pug, I had my prize: one mangled butterfly covered in pug drool. Suddenly, looking down at the butterfly, Dream Me realizes the pug had the right idea, and I promptly begin eating what’s left of it, pug spit and all.


Then, like we’re in an episode of Pokemon, this butterfly begins to change into a bigger, badass butterfly / Japanese Hornet hybrid (if you don’t know already what a Japanese Hornet is, feel free to google it, just don’t hit the ‘Y’ key instead of the ‘T’ key while typing ‘hornet’ and wind up with a google image spread of porn. Typo fail true story.)


So, yeah, while Dream Me was choking and trying to pull some insect monstrosity out of my mouth, bit by bit (because of course it’s falling apart and simultaneously trying to crawl down my throat all at once) I finally wake up from this dream. Worst. Nap. EVER.

Anywhoooo, April’s been kind of a crazy month so far. This is only my second post of the month, and It’s been hard for me to find time to hop onto WP, but I’m hoping life will regain some normalcy in May. Apologies in advance if I’m sort of flaky this month with posting and commenting. Life is hectic at the moment with the new job/new house situation. Tell me how you’re doing, though! πŸ˜€ I miss getting to chat with all you awesome people more, so I’d love to hear how you’re doing and if you’ve got anything exciting going on. Feel free to leave a link below to any cool posts of yours you feel I may have missed recently. ❀

  1. Holy shit girl, that is some kip! That would make for a great sequence in a graphic novel… Maybe lay off the cheese before nap time in future, (or maybe just eat more?) πŸ™‚

  2. That’s it, we’re having chocolate covered butterflies when you come over. Ozzy will supply the drool dip. I hope you’re okay with mutt drool instead of pug drool this go around. πŸ˜‰
    (I’m resisting taking a nap at this very moment! I’m only resisting though because we’re going to hit two Pokemon Go raids in the cemetery shortly.)

    1. Haha yeah, Ozzy could definitely supply more drool, so I think that will do just fine! πŸ˜› Chocolate would definitely help with the flavor, so I like your mode of thinking! πŸ˜‰
      Have fun with the raiding in the cemetery (that totally makes it sound like you guys are going to be digging up bodies lol.)

  3. Bug dreams are the worst! When I was a teenager I worked at a camp as a teen volunteer. I had a dream that I lifted my sleeping bag and it was just coated in thousands of spiders. I also dreamed I jumped up and ran, except in the real world I launched myself out of my sleeping bag and off the top bunk, where I landed on one of my co-campers big giant trunks and had to be rushed home, lol. I still have the scars.

  4. Oh my gosh! The spiders πŸ™ I don’t like spiders and I dream about them often! I’d say that was one wild and vivid dream. I used to have a dream journal where I would write them down to remember. I’ve had some weird ones including locusts, wolves, reptiles, you name it. Interesting! Thanks for sharing yours. πŸ’™πŸ’–πŸ’™

    1. Haha Me neither! Spiders are the creepiest. I vanquished two this morning and was NOT happy about having crossed paths with them in the first place. >__<
      That's really neat that you kept a dream journal. I always mean to start one, but have yet to get around to it. My best friend is always telling me to start one after I tell her about all the weird dreams I wind up having. πŸ˜› Yours sound like they would be really interesting, especially the wolf and locust ones.
