An article on the MP made me think about stress dreams and how random they seem (while in actuality they are all fairly similar among people I know). So tell me your stress dream! You know, the one where you show up to school/work naked, or you have to recite the Gettysburg Address with Lincoln in the audience, etc.

My stress dreams are always the same. When I was (much) younger, I was on a competitive dance team. My stress dream always involves me showing up for our final yearly recital, except I haven't been to practice all year* and I don't know any of the choreography and I'm not even sure which costume goes with which dance. In my dreams I think, "I'll just hide behind the tallest person on stage and mimic what they do - I can fake it!" but then I'm always blocked front center and I screw up the dance and let the team down.

Tell me yours!

*This detail always bugs me in my dream because I know that there's a miss-three-practices-and-you're-out policy on the team. So half my dream is spent wondering why they're still letting me dance.
