  1. My dream was several cars, people. cars were parked on a sunny day, on rocks by the water. I was screaming for the others, mostly children, to stay away. I did not see myself. I was viewing through my own eyes. I was awakened before anyone got hurt…

    I dreamt of alligators out to get me, they looked so real. They were in a swamp and I was skiing pass them. The biggest one almost bit me. Towards the end of the dream, it turned out they were fake. Computerized. Harmless, but it still felt scary….
