The Naked Dream

Last night I had the naked dream - again.
I dream about it all.the.frickin.time and find it kinda disturbing. And annoying. They are all similar, but here is last night's version:
I'm back in the little village where I grew up, visiting my parents. My mom sends me to the butcher's shop to get some sliced ham. So far so good, all the clothes are still in place. Now I'm walking down the main street, and - bam! - top and bra are gone. I still wear my pants (thank God for small favours!) but am topless.
At least I'm still wearing pants in this dream , but I went commando in previous ones.
Strangely enough I'm not too perturbed by it and enter the butcher's shop. (It's a real-life shop where I used to go all the time when I was younger.)
The ladies there are happy to see me, ask how I'm doing while they slice my ham, even give me a slice to eat right away like in the old days - while I'm still naked from the waist up!! Breasts gently swaying in the wind. It's too bizarre. Why do I have the Naked Dream all the time?

To get to the bottom of this I did what every sensible person would do: I googled "dream interpretation".

Here is what they are telling me:

"Often times, when you realize that you are naked in your dream, no one else seems to notice. Everyone else in the dream is going about their business without giving a second look at your nakedness. If this happens in your dream, then it implies that your fears are unfounded; no one will notice except you. You may be magnifying the situation and making an issue of nothing."

Hold on, are you telling me it's all in my head? I'm making a big deal out of nothing? A mountain out of a molehill? Me?? (Who are these dream interpreters and why do they know me so well?)

"If you dream that you are proud of your nakedness and show no embarrassment or shame, then it symbolizes your unrestricted freedom. You have nothing to hide and are proud of who you are. The dream is about a new sense of honesty, openness, and a carefree nature. Perhaps you are trying to get to the 'bare facts'. Alternatively, the dream may be telling you that you are drawing the wrong kind of attention to yourself. You want to get noticed, but are going about it the wrong way."

Hm. I like the bit about trying to get to the 'bare facts', because that's a quest I'm on right now. Discovering realness in a fake(ish) world!
And being proud of who you are? We should all strive for that. On good days (make that very good days) I'm almost there... but on average or bad days? Nope. There is a lot of room for improvement.

I don't like the last bit at all (hitting too close to home? Am I blogging to get attention? Is it the wrong way??), so I will disregard it on the spot.

Yep. Let's go with the honesty, openness and carefree nature!
Way to go Naked Dream!
By the way, this is my future hair-do.
 What are some of your weird dreams?
