semi-sleep walking

I had a lucid dream this morning that the man was standing in the kitchen with a load of heavy tools in his arms and he needed me to come open the basement door for him. I tried, but it's like I wasn't really there so I couldn't open the door. It was very weird — I was in the dream and also in my bed having the dream at the same time. It's not like I've never had a lucid dream before, but this was different. My mind was in the kitchen trying to help the man, but my body was still in bed making it impossible to get that door open.

But the need to open the door was so compelling that I finally got out of bed, walked through the kitchen and reached for the basement door...

Wait. That was a dream. The man is not here waiting for me to open the door.

I don't know why, but I opened it anyway. And then went back to bed.

Man, those dreams are freaky. I've had one like that, and it was really unnerving.

Yeah this was a weird one. I felt very confused when my half-asleep mind realized I was acting out a dream.

I once had a dream about REMEMBERING having been a serial killer. (The dream started out with embedded memories about having killed someone, and the actual events of the dream focused on the aftermath of that). When I woke up, there were about 75 seconds in which I knew that the dream was a dream, but thought that the memories which came embedded in the dream were real. Those were the worst 75 seconds of my life.

Usually if I dream about a familiar place there's something off about it. But for some reason whenever I have a dream set in my house, it always seems to be realistic, looking exactly like my house. So those are the ones that tend to confuse me most abut whether they were a dream or not when I wake up.

Dude, as long as your basement wall wasn't covered in blood and obscure messages... I think we're good
