I had a dream last night...

Post by GrandPiano » Thu 08 Jun 2017, 00:52

:eng: I had a dream last night that a monster was chasing me.

:chn: Mandarin

我昨晚梦到一个怪兽在追我。 (simplified)
我昨晚夢到一個怪獸在追我。 (traditional)
Wǒ zuówǎn mèngdào yī ge guàishòu zài zhuī wǒ.

1[SG] last.night dream one CL monster PROG chase 1[SG]

(Really, 梦 mèng alone is the verb meaning "to dream", and 到 dào, which literally means "to arrive", functions as an indicator that the action indicated by the verb has succeeded. I'm not sure how to gloss that, though, so I just glossed 梦到 as a single morpheme.)

I just read "monster" as "mother." Was that a Freudian slip, or am I just losing it?

Anyway:

So, what is it? A monster? A werewolf? A goblin? A kaiju? Any monster we wish?
Any monster we've had nightmare's about?

About 3 or 4 years ago, I had this doozie of a nightmare where I dreamt my siblings, some of our children and I were at this amusement park down the Shore at night. We were riding on this big roller-coaster (old-fashioned up-and-down kind; no twirlies). We got stuck at the top for some reason, and then we heard all this screaming. Turns out Godzilla was behind us. He came towards us, grabbed the coaster-cars off the track, and shook us all to our deaths. I recall scarily and helplessly watching my son and siblings falling into the darkness, with only the cold hard ground to crush on by one, and stupid roundabout music playing awkwardy in the immediate distance. Godzilla, I [<3] U but I :mrred: U.
