  1. I had a dream where I was sitting on a guys lap thag I didn’t even know. I don’t remember much about the dream accept I was in my old house that I moved out of. It was around Halloween time and I have 4 or 5 people over drinking somehing I don’t know of and standing around. While I was in an couch wih a boy I didn’t know. I was sitting in this guys lap and he just held me. I was in an stitch onesie and was on my phone (looking for Halloween costumes) with my head in his neck. What does this mean?

  2. I dreamed that I was sitting on chair and talking to a friend and suddenly my crush came and sat on my lap I just grabbed his waist for balance he was light in weight he then asked my friend if she had brought what he asked for (there was something that I couldn’t get what it was at first but it turned out to be a small white dildo) He then asked her if he can take it now (and also she has a little crush on him in real life) she said something and he only took the dildo but not anything else because it came with a charger and some other stuff, I then asked him what was that (I don’t remember what he said but I so remember I understood what it was in the dream )
    This dream was very werid so that’s Why I want to know about it.

  3. I dreamt a man actually smelling of urine and I was in a bus sleeping to wake with this man partly on my lap.
    Asked him to move he wouldn’t. Pushed him off slowly whilst he objected to move he fell to the floor of the bus. He also had crutches and this was on the top deck of the bus.
    He took out his phone to call police.
    Then other people wanted to pass by he was in the way and I helped people pass by by giving a hand to stabilise them to pass safely. Then these stag beetles started crawling about . One got stepped on and immediately baby Beetles scurried out of it and it screamed out a long scream. It then started to go after me and tried to hook onto my clothes it disappeared perhaps it did or not hook on but I woke up . I would like to know what was that dream all about.

  7. I had a dream that was rather odd, it fits in the category, ‘lap’ but not a subcategory. I remember in this dream I was sitting on a chair and a boy came up and asked, “could I sit on your lap,” I replied with, “yes.” The dream ended there and it was morning, it was a strange dream, short and simple. I just don’t know what exactly it means.
