Normal caveats about telling someone a dream apply …

I sometimes have really cinematic dreams that are actually very enjoyable for me to watch. Here’s one:

I dreamt that my wife, daughter and I were vacationing in time, in the early 1990s. We were on some kind of resort island. Just as we were about to get in the time machine and go home, my daughter ran away and I had to chase her. My wife was recalled on the time machine, stranding me and my daughter in the past.

My daughter and I had to make our way in the early 90s, without Mommy. Since this was the early 90s, it was almost impossible for me to find a job without identification. Also, I was used to the internet, and I had a hard time doing my job. My daughter just missed her Mom.

We spent a lot of time trying to leave marks so my wife could find us from the future. It was kind of like losing someone in the mall, but way worse. Also, this was pre-4square, so we couldn’t just “check in” someplace.

I don’t know if it’s a viable story or not. But it was affecting as it happened.
