Fun dream

Had a dream last night where I was hopping around high school (a high school much bigger than any I've ever been to) like a kangaroo. It was quite a fast method of travel, which is good, because I was trying to find the cafeteria. I found it, and was getting ready to get some stuff when a teacher told me not to hop in the halls. I was whining that I didn't want to walk normally, because I "plod around like a penquin" when I walk normally (I do, kinda). Needing some alternative, I got a wheelchair, and was soon zipping around almost as fast as I'd been while hopping. For some reason lunch was being held in the gymnasium, where there was also a play going on onstage. There were lots of veggies of different kinds, and there was also pizza. :-D

Funny thing is, I hop in dreams a lot. Not all dreams, maybe 25% of them. It is a lot faster than walking. :-) And other times, I "fly." By fly, I mean I levitate a few inches off the ground, and lean the direction I want to go. I lean forward enough, and I can zip around at over 30 MPH!

Skipping is a fun and fast way of travelling too.

I think the only time I skip in dreams is if Molly is the one dreaming. But yeah, tis fun.

I used to hop in dreams too.

I suspect that part of it was that living at the top of a 500 foot fairly even and continuous slope, I had experience with something similar.

Y'see, we could start "walking" down the hill and if you got the rhythm right you'd wind up taking these *huge* strides down the hill. Sort of like what I imagine walking on the moon would be like.

So in my dreams I could *feel* myself leaning forward as I pushed off, flying thru the air and shifting so that as I landed I landed feet first, compressed my legs, let my momentum carry my body forward to push off again.

Sort of in slow motion, but the body kinetics were *right* if you know what I mean.

Good lord, that would terrify me, letting gravity have me like that.

There was a trick to it, but even if you lost your balance or the rhythm, worst that'd happen was you'd roll 20 or 30 feet thru the tall grass and short bushes.

I wouldn't try it *now*, because I'm a lot heavier and break far more easily.

Ouch. Through bushes? No, I've always been too much of a wimp to risk that.

Knee high "bushes". And we didn't go *thru* them. They were quite easy to dodge while doing the giant step bit.

If you lost it, they'd help stop you.
