Newspaper Dream Meaning and Interpretations

  5. Grumpy faced fasety numpty was reading a numpty, whilst I was talking to someone thru my back window, which was incongruously covered with my bright pink bath towels.

    my grisly grumpy neighbour kept looking at me from behind his newspaper he was reading or pretending to read, – he looked like a numbskull numpty mi5 spy.

    Why he was in my flat, observing me – I’ve no idea. He shouldn’t have been there – nosey cunt.

  6. What does it mean if you dream you are delivering newspapers. Each paper has a name and address stamped on it in light blue. I delivered a group of papers to one location that seemed like a UPS or warehouse. Then I had to deliver some individual papers.
